Best Adventure Time Episodes


The Top TenXW

1I 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.

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.

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...

The most important story moment in my opinion. It's the most serious, unexpected, clever, and heart wrenching plot twist in any American animated series in recent memory. And the retro music makes it so nostalgic! - sipinii

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 fantastic, probably my favourite episode of all time. I can't believe it's so low.

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.

The final truly amazing AT episode. The quality of the drama and humor have went to downhill ever since. - sipinii

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.

Extremely fun game to watch Finn and Jake play. The game actually seems very fun, and looks very well thought out on the episode creator's part! I also love the "Finn and Jake messing around" part, it's not often we see that. Most of the time we get the episodes focused on a whole adventure time universe and episodes important to the season, but this episode was just pure fun!

It was so funny! I thought adventure time was becoming different and just being about girlfriends and boyfriends but then they made this episode! It's just like the old finn and jake goofing off episodes that I miss a lot. - SammySpore

Why? This Episode Was Boring!

4Too Young

This is my favourite episode! :) But the funniest thing is that when my younger brother is angry, he is exactly like Lemongrab! (Well, except that there's no lemon juice rattling around in his head when he laughs. )

This is the most mature episode in adventure time. Instead of trying to earn princess bubblegum's love, he waits for her love, because he's too young.

The mix of honest yearning and lemongrab make this episode unacceptably great. The episodes like this that build the characters are the best. - sipinii

Anything but the episode for #1 is UNACCEPTABLE!

It made me sad at the end but it's still an awesome episode

Poor ice king
Flame princess should be killed for beating him up
I like it when the snow golem hugs her and she suffers in pain

6Burning 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

Another character builder episode with simple but intensive drama. The feels! - sipinii

This should be higher

8What 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.

A lot of amazing stuff in only 10 minutes! The villain was trippy and funny, the drama was simple yet effective. The relationships between the characters were expressed by singing which was cleverly explained and executed in the episode. I would show this to a AT first timer. - sipinii

I really loved the two songs. The should more higher!

9Vault of Bones

Such a great episode. Really shows the relationship between Finn and FP

10Marceline'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! - YoshiDragon240

I died when the spider bit jake. - SammySpore

The Newcomers

?Bonnie and Neddy

Fantastic episode, and really shows more of pb and Marty's past

The Contenders


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

Adventure Time did great in 2014, and this is one of the best. I wonder if Finn loses the vine arm (first seen in The Comet) and gets a robot arm like in this episode when he is grown up.

One of the best new episodes. - SammySpore

12Memories 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

13No 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.

As much as I love the "Simon & Marcy episodes and the episodes where Finn and Jake just goof off, this episode is fantastic. It has a dark tone, a scary concept (while still having a satisfying ending), it had a lot of suspense. This plot is good enough to be turned into a movie.

14My 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 - mrpotatoheadchernobylstyle

15Death 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?

I like the way Death is portrayed in this episode, a deer skeleton living in a castle of light.

Awesome episode, Peppermint butler is my favourite character

I like when Jake is the president.

16The Creeps

This episode is so funny. Prince Hottbod, the bathroom screaming, the whole Brad thing- I just love watching it. And the part with the ghost lady always mystifies me. (even though I've seen the vault I just always thought it was a cool scene) - seerOfmind

The green female ghost in the bathroom gave me nightmares! One of the most disturbing AT episodes I have seen!

Good mystery and Finn was in a suit. What's more awesome than that?

Dude, this episode gave me goosebumps.

17From Bad to Worse

It was the first adventure time episode I watched when I was 10. I thought it was hilarious - SammySpore

Best episode by far. Deserves to be on top 10

The candy kindom gets infested and turn into zombies.


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

19The 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

"WAIT. You're not a doughnut, you're a BAGEL! Lies, Lies EVERYWHERE! " I died laughing.

I love the witch in this episode

I guess but its not my favorite
