The Top Ten

I Remember You
Fantastic episode with the most heartwarming moment in the series. Truly shows what adventure time is capable of and deserves to be first.
The sweetest episode... Truly amazing, especially for a weird, awesome show like adventure time. The background of this show is like no other. Almost cried...
You would probably think that I have favorites. Apparently I do. I love marceline. She's so awesome. This episode will also make you cry like her in this episode. This may lack action but it will certainly touch your heart. Add the great voice of rebecca sugar (voice of marcy), the way she sings there made me cry. Music in this episode is genius.

2Simon & Marcy
I am always "the tough one" in a group but I can't help but to cry in this episode. One would appreciate this more if they watched the series "cheers". I always liked the fact that the setting of adventure time is post-apocalyptic. This episode emphasized its setting. This episode is truly my fave. No wonder why it's an emmy award nominee.
This episode was beautiful. It was funny, and yet sad at the same time. Seeing Ice King trying to protect Marceline was a very heartwarming sight.
This episode was fantastic, probably my favourite episode of all time. I can't believe it's so low.

3Card Wars
I thought that AT was going to be the whole emotional girlfriend/boyfriend thing they had changed it into, but then Card Wars came along. It brought back the original, Finn and Jaje messing around hilarity I thought made the best episode. Also, Card Wars seems like a really cool game.
I Love This episode! Absolutely Funny! I love it when Finn trolls jake with his skills! Extremely funny and awesome! I loved the game of card wars too and I wish it was in real life because its is todally awesome and FUNNY!
I like how they detail a completely original, clever board game, and if it was real game, then I would DEFINITELY buy it! Keep up the awesome work, Pendelton Ward!

4Too Young
Lemongrab is so FUNNY and he is the FUNNIEST villain ever in the show and the episode is very good
I think this ep is wicked
Ya! Finn and PB!

5Burning Low
Finn and Flame Princess FOREVER! This episode has GOT to be the best, plus it has the most amount of viewers, with 3.5 Million viewers, beating the record set by 'Fionna & Cake' with 3.3. I don't think PB is jealous, okay maybe a little; but at least she has valid reasons.
This has got to be the number one. The most talked-about love triangle, FLAME PRINCESS, FINN AND PRINCESS BUBBLEGUM!
Oh finn + flame princess is just beautiful and romantic and the princess bubblegum is jealous
This is easily my favourite episode; Finn and Flame Princess are so cute together and this episode proves they are made for each other also Princess Bubblegum is jealous

6The Vault
Such a sweet episode

7Frost & Fire
It made me sad at the end but it's still an awesome episode

8Marceline's Closet
When the spider bit Jake... Funiest reaction ever!
I LOVE THIS EPISODE. I showed my sister and she hasnt stopped laughing especially at the part where Jake got bitten by the spider
Not much adventure in this episode, but this is to Adventure Time what This is My Jam to Regular Show. Funny, funny, funny!

9No One Can Hear You
The first time I saw this episode I spent like two minutes shocked after the episode finished just looking at the screen. It"s the scariest and weirdest episode of all the show, and this episode is not for kids! But I loved it, it gives me the creeps... Brr!
This episode definitely had the darkest feel to it. It really creeped me out. I think it would make a good movie. I felt bad for jake cause he went crazy.
Legitimately creeped me out while still maintaining a thrilling story.

10What Was Missing
This episode is amazing! The music is beautiful, I really love both of the songs, especially I'm just your problem. The characters really open up and we get to see a lot out of them (Marceline in this episode was great, as well as Finn). Not to mention that Jake was hilarious with his "jerk in the band" act. This was just an amazing episode.
The music in this episode was great and the writers portrayed lots of genuine emotion with the rift between PB and Marceline. I think this episode definitely qualifies as one of the best in Adventure time thus far.
What Was Missing was very heartwarming. It had brung most of the characters together. The singing was very well constructed too, so I appreciated that. The characters' personalities were also expressed, seeing how Marceline and PB fixed the rift between them.

The Contenders

11Vault of Bones

Great episode! Finn lived a whole other life in an instance of real time in another dimension. Great story line and concept, one of my all time favorite episodes
Super funny QND cute! 😍

13My Two Favorite People
Jake tries to get lay rainicorn and finn better friends but things get complicated.
Just because I love Tiffany laugh out loud


14Memories of Boom Boom Mountain
Hilarious episode! Nice to have a random story like this with no relation to plot that's still so well done. As a side note, I thought it was fun to see an episode centered around the rough-housing village. Those vikings are so funny!
I LOVE memories of boom-boom mountain. IT'S HALARIOUS

15The Creeps
Scariest adventure time I've ever seen
Dude, this episode gave me goosebumps.
Good mystery and Finn was in a suit. What's more awesome than that?

16Death in Bloom
The very best the show has to offer! The animation is incredibly creative and interesting, the characters are all on top form, and the jokes are hilarious, especially in the first half. Also, how great is Peppermint Butler?
Awesome episode, Peppermint butler is my favourite character
I like when Jake is the president.

17From Bad to Worse

The candy kindom gets infested and turn into zombies.

18The Witch's Garden
It's so funny finn jake say that the whitch has a husband but its funny to here her say I don't have a husband in her angry voice
I love the witch in this episode
I guess but its not my favorite

19All the Little People
I enjoyed it because it had mini versions of most of the characters. Magic man gives Finn a small bag. He realises later that their are people in it
This must be in top ten this episode is beautiful! Why its in top 19


"Hello, Frank the human... (gasp) how did you almost know my name? "
"Lady, you are SICK! " this should be in the top ten

22Mystery Train
This one was great it showed a lot of mystery and weird stuff and that's what makes adventure time what it is
A murder mystery happens when Jake takes Finn on a train for his 13th birthday.

23The Limit
Literally the funniest episode ever. I was laughing nonstop.
Finn and Jake go through a maze for a wish, but Jake is being stretched to the limit.

24Mortal Folly
This episode introduces the Lich, who has real menace and one of the most badass evil laughs ever heard on televison. The main plot also makes for one grand quest. Finn and Jake are fully aware of the stakes, but they handle it in a way that is unique to this show. When you hear this exchange (they're chasing after the lich)
Jake: This is our first fate of the world deal!
Finn: Yeah, man! We gotta shut this fool down hardcore!
It's just awesome.
In this episode, the most evil of evil anatagonist is introduced. He is the lich

25Jake the Dog

26Jake Suit
This episode really funny! One of the best

27Jake vs. Me-Mow

28Guardians of Sunshine

29Thank You
HOW IS THIS NOT IN THE TOP TEN this was like the most heartwarming episode in adventure time, is wasn't a typical episode, it focused on different characters and gives us a great moral and different perspective of adventure time...this episode was so beautiful..
This is what makes adventure time so diff and awesome from any other shows, it can me you love it even if your favorite character is not there. This is heartwarming and life-affirming. It will teach you a lesson. Watch it.
This episode is hilarious heartwarming and adorable should be in the top five WHY ON EARTH IS THIS SO LOW?!

I LOVE the way he say bad things to the poor ugly tree witch "You're never gonna be beautiful EVUUR" laugh out loud

38Holly Jolly Secrets, Part II

39Lady & Peebles
