Worst Adventure Time Episodes

The Top Ten

1 Water Park Prank

Oddly enough, this is the only guest animated episode to be considered canon, and yet it's by far the worst one. At least Food Chain had a plot that made sense, but this one doesn't. It felt like I was watching the same thing twice, not to mention how Finn and the rest of the cast suddenly seemed to be totally different people. Food Chain had it's funny moments ("Hey, is that my butt? Man It's been awhile") but this episode really failed to deliver in all apartments.

I could forgive the alternate animation, but it seemed like the writer had never seen an episode of Adventure time before, it's like it was written for an entirely different more juvenile audience with no respect for the characters.

This is an episode that totally plot changes. At first, Finn gets covered in sad faces, Then, Finn has to prove to Jake the magic coin works, And then they prank Ice king. It's a plot that is all over the place, horrible Animation, And lame gags. - puglover2008

Why did they change the animation

2 Food Chain

Worst episode ever sick stupid and retarded I don't get it how do they turn in birds and finn tried to kill jake and at the end he sings like Justin Bieber

This episode was completely unnecessary. It's completely disgusting, fails at being educational, is totally dumb, and has horrid songs. And above all, the animation is horrid for Adventure Time. I swear at times Finn's lips wouldn't match up to the words.

Some episodes are cool like wizard battle, but this one is creepy and weird. It's adventure time, not a science program.

Uhh...this is my least favorite episode. Too much singing and too weird. - AlphaQ

3 Wizards Only, Fools

Bubblegum was an unreasonable, stubborn jerk who caused the groups crusade to the Wizard City to fail miserably and had made everything worse. And in the end, she doesn't feel the least bit sorry about it! This had killed her character for me and made me dislike her ever since.

This episode made me despise PB. She kept acting like a arrogant, unreasonable throughout the entire time. Her stubbornness had put the group and their mission in jeopardy, causing them to fail to get Starchy's requested cure and just giving up and doing it her way in the end, showing that she had learned nothing from the experience.

Princess Bubblegum was so stupid in this episode

This episode made PB hate magic,even though she never had a problem with it before.And isn't magic kinda of a religion.

Actually I dislike the gender swapped version. - 05yusuf09

Everything is lame and romanced up.

Just goes to show you that you should never let the Ice King write fan fiction. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It wasn't actually that bad, it was just really mediocre. It felt way too romance-y. (Although the ending was hilarious)

5 Frost & Fire

I'm gonna let you in on a little secret. I typically don't like protagonist that are shallow, self-centered, presumptuous, or all of the above, at least not in a high-continuity dramatic show like Adventure Time. There are definitely ways to do this character type correctly. For example, Star Butterfly from Star vs FOE has a lot of the flaws I just mentioned, but a) a good chunk of the show is dedicated to comedic exaggeration amongst the dramatic parts, which makes her behavior that would be unacceptable in real-life a little more justified. Second of all, Star actually LEARNS from her mistakes and GROWS as a character over time. So, there are definitely ways to do this character type correctly, as such, there is NO excuse for this terrible episode. Before this point in the series, Finn had always been rather immature, shallow, etc. He's a kid, what do you expect? However, this episode took it to a WHOLE new level. In this episode, Finn a) lies to his girlfriend to get her to fight ...more

Finn was a stupid moron in this episode. He made Flame Princess beat Ice King senseless despite the fact that he hadn't done anything, all just to have a certain dream. It even gets to the point where nearly all of the ice kingdom is devastated, and Flame Princess dumps him for his stupidity. This just made me dislike Finn so much after that, and it didn't improve since Finn became more of a vessal for the plot to me than a character.

Finn was just dead to me from that moment. He had in directly caused flame princess to harm Simon and decimate the ice kingdom for no reason then to have a dream he really liked. This personally killed Finn for me.

Finn was as out of character as SpongeBob in 'a pal for Gary' he makes his friends fight for no reason because his stupid dream had the legendary cosmic owl!? what Finn!?

6 Betty

Why is this here

Ruined the Simon story so badly. In this episode it looked like the show was trying do hard to be sad. - DubstepLover

While I don't mind bringing Betty to Ooo, the way they did it was very sloppy. For one thing, she didn't even care about the magic and all the bizarre things that exist in Ooo. No human would behave as Betty did if suddenly transported to a magical fantasy world.

The worst part was when Muscle Princess was beating up Ice King and Betty didn't care, unlike the Loyal to the King ending, which the princesses suck because of their violent minded jerkassery. ¡ Fist my middle finger, you violent bitches!

7 Buisness Men

Finn being fat is the worst thing that could happen in this series, it's just distasteful for me as a fan of him.

Its called Buisness Time - puglover2008

8 Burning Low

This episode is by far one of the best episodes of adventure time, how the hell is it on this list?

How is this on the list? This episode was great!

It would've been a better episode if bubblegum was straightfoward with her plan from the get go.

That episode ruins Finn and Bonnibel's relationship. Curse you Flame Princess! - 05yusuf09

9 Chips and Ice Cream

The only thing I remember about this episode was that I didn't like it. Or how annoying it was

Worst episode ever. Johnny Test's best episode is miles better than this, and that says something. And what are Garfunkel and Oates doing on a kids show? - 445956

This episode is pointless and VERY BORING. - Lunala

What were they even thinking!?

10 Sad Face

Sad Face was awful for so many reasons. First, Finn and Jake were barely even in it! It was boring and I don't even know why this was an Adventure Time episode. Second, this episode made no sense! Finally the first time I saw this I didn't even know what to say. Even if someone said they would give me one million dollars to watch this and say Sad Face was the best episode of Adventure Time, I would walk away and say KEEP YOUR MONEY CRAZY PERSON!

Most pointless piece of crap AT has ever put on the air.

I hate this episode. It's pointless and boring.

Boring episode, it’s about jake’s tail turning into some stupid clown thing when he is asleep - Lunala

The Contenders

11 Daddy's Little Monster

Disgusting and retarded. Blame nobody but yourself, Ice King.

12 Dream of Love

This episode is not disgusting, but the same joke just got tiring.

Gross and boring. Terrible song toward the end.

Weird, god awful AND GROSS!

Mr pig ruined the show

It wasn't terrible...but it was pretty boring. Finn and Jake come across two spiders in a dysfunctional marriage relationship, so they try to help them. The dialogue felt kind of awkward, and it really just felt like a couple arguing a lot. Not the worst, but not something I'd go back and watch again.

14 Breezy

Undoubtedly the worst episode in the entire series. Not only did it ruin a story arc that has been foreshadowed for a long time, but it ruins Finn's character. What we have here is Finn literally prostituting himself, in the process becoming an ass to every lady he dates and immediately dumps them after a kiss. He hangs out with a bee who wants to bang his flower arm. In the end, we get a half-assed song that brings Finn's arm, the arm that the writers have built up to being severed, grows back. And Finn learns something, I guess.
In Frost and Fire, Finn was a jerk, but came to regret his actions in Earth and Water and later episodes. I have seen the rest of season 6 despite losing all hope after watching "this." Finn learned nothing.
It's as if it never happened, I wish it could be ignored, but it can't after resolving a major story arc.

Thank you Breezy. For making me loose hope in Finn and the show.
(Thankfully season 7 is better)

Adventure Time was meant to be fun and adventurous which also meant less ROMANCE. Finn becomes a player and takes advice from a bee who only cares about Finn's arm flower. How stupid is this CRAP.

Finn acted like a huge jerk in this episode.

Season 6. the worst season. Super cool dads dungeon or this. choose.

15 You Made Me

Okay, so I understand that not every episode of Adventure time can be perfect. BUT WHY THIS? Lemon Grab is demented and sadistic and I understand that that's just his character, but they've taken it to far. Stalking people while they sleep? And I believe later on in another episode he EATS his own BROTHER? He's INSANE! They need to get rid of him! He's a danger to Ooo and definitely a dictator. KILL. LEMON GRAB. Geez

I would grab his "lemon" if you know what I mean he he he

Lemongrab's creepy and horrible! I HATE EVERY EPISODE ABOUT HIM!

NO! I like this one! CURSE YOU!

16 Five Short Graybles

It wasn't that bad, and I really liked the premise and idea behind it. In fact, I'd even say it was a good episode. I also really liked the fourth wall breaks with the "pause viewer now" thing. It definitely wasn't too memorable, but it certainly doesn't deserve to be on this list.

That guy treat us like we're 4 years old! I feel like watching Dora when I look at every episode about him telling stupid stories!

Somebody needs to sacrifice Cuber to Death so we can get Root Beer Guy back.

The five female candies stole LSP's favourite song,then blaming her for stealing the song ( which the five were the jerkasses here, and it was LSP's song ) and made her prideful sanity screw up to the point of throwing balls at people to come at the basketball hole and crying out of happiness, and emotional breakdown.

17 The Jiggler

Come on people this episode and gut grinder are good

18 Box Prince

This should NOT be on here, this episode was adorable and left me with a smile on my face. Box kingdom is really cute and the ending was funny. Cats are great. This list is wrong, the only episodes that are Truly unbearable to watch are frost and fire and like the water slide prank episode - Ladysnuggles

I really hate this episode cause of Jake, it acted like a jerk the whole episode and his subplot it didn't connect to anything. Also, the cats were boring to watch as Finn

This episode is really really boring. Not has a special plot, lame jokes, and awful ending. I couldn't even understand the episode plot.

It was just... meh. - MKBeast

Honestly an uninteresting episode that did nothing new, it was just unnecessarily creepy. And not in a good way, like No One Can Hear You or Mystery Train.

20 Hug Wolf

Agreed 100%

21 Ghost Princess

Why is this here?! The voice actor for Clarence is the almighty SAM MARIN, voice of Benson, Pops, AND Muscle Man from Regular Show!

What's this doing here? It had a great plot, and an interesting mystery! The only reason I can think of it being here is a small plothole, and even that doesn't make it a bad episode.

22 Up a Tree

This episode was ok, but the plot was pretty uncreative. It starts off with Finn and Jake playing catch, and Finn throws the frisbee for it up a tree by accident, then Finn climbs up with a help of animals, but he says no and still gets the offer. He then climbs the tree with the powers and finds his way to the top. Then a group of animals throw him in a dungeon but then he escapes with the guard of the dungeon with the frisbee. There aren't many flaws, but this episode was boring.

I personally liked this episode. But I can admit that it was boring and didn't have that much effect - SheepBuggy

Very, very boring. Finn acted stupid and the episode is so slow.

I love this one. - 445956

23 Gotcha!

It wasn't terrible, but it felt kind of awkward and a bit stupid.

Seriously it was gross (even for LSP) and it has some moments that AT shouldn't even had it.

It's a name of videogame why the hell the creator stole this idea.

24 Gut Grinder

The gut grinder is okay, it is cool.

It not bad, but it's an "Okay" episode.

Worst episode of its season. It's like they forgot to make it funny.

25 The Monster
26 Wizard Battle
27 The Red Throne

Basically, the plot was boring, Finn was just there because why not, and Cinnamon Bun had a complete character 180. Enough said.

This is the worst. Episode. Ever. Oh, and I HATE the Flame King. Excuse me for a moment while I kill him.

This episode made me hate Cinnamon Bun sooo much and also Flame Princess a bit. I was hoping to see Finn and Flame Princess get back together as it was near Valentines Day when this episode aired

I would of enjoyed seeing Flame King & Don Jon win

28 I Remember You

The only reason I voted was to share my opinion. What the heck is this doing higher than Bmo Noire!?!?! This is the best episode by far!

Unpopular opinion: This episode sucks. How is just an episode with Marceline and Ice King singing the best episode? Simon and Marcy, Lemonhope ll, and Princess Cookie made me cry. This I just was waiting and waiting for the episode to finish. - 445956

29 The Comet

The season started with a cool episode "Escape from the Citadel". This was dissapointing, the writers ruined the Comet story arc and the Orgalorg arc. But season 7 is better.

30 Simon & Marcy

Excuse me, how did THIS get on the list?

My pardon? I think you might've accidently put it on the wrong list. This belongs on the top ten BEST adventure time episodes - SheepBuggy

Oh my god take this off the list now

What! This is the best Adventure Time episode.

31 Evergreen

No logic, no good story, no good characters, bad end, a crappy dream, a new stupid characters

Seriously this episode is a garbage

You might think that now, but what happened in this episode is going to be HUGE in future episodes.

Why is this episode on here. This episode is great I like how it has the ironic twist at the end

No... This was amazing! - bunnyluv070

Gunter wasted his power by always shouting " ¡ Gunter, no! ", when his father Evergreen, convinced him to channel his power against the comet, despite being guilt of acting rude towards his son. I had a list of morals and lessons to learn per each episode ending.

32 From Bad to Worse
33 Bmo Noire

I don't get it. It probably would have been a good story but the black and white graphics is cringe.

Super boring, stupid black and white graphics and SO DAMN POINTLESS

34 Her Parents

This one was boring

35 Power Animal

The storyline is pointless. Finn gets taken by gnomes who have a stupid plot that needs Finn's energy and Jake spends the entire episode trying to ' focus, but he can't.

I HATE THIS ONE! Finn is suffering and Jake doesn't even look for him.

36 Donny

He's supposed to be a jerk. Don't hate someone because they are what they are meant to be - SheepBuggy

37 BMO lost

Worst episode ever!

38 The Cooler
39 Jake vs. Me-Mow
40 My Two Favorite People

This episode got an academy award

41 Little Brother

This episode is boring. I liked Shelby before this episode now he just looks weird in the new episodes - SheepBuggy

In this episode jake is the worst, I hate it, the only good part is when BMO and necto gone to save they

They make a episode involving money? I don't think it is a good idea. Also, Wildberry Princess was a big jerk in this episode.

What the hell happens to Finn and Jake in this episode? ESPECIALLY JAKE! They don't learn anything and they escape like they weren�'t heroes! Seoursly, I HATE THIS EPISODE! IT MAKES JAKE MORE JERK THAT HE WAS BEFORE!

44 The Witch's Garden

Aw, I liked this episode! - SheepBuggy

45 Incendium

Stupid Flame Princess was introduced at the episode. She ruins the show for me. - 05yusuf09

46 A Glitch is a Glitch

This episode was awful. It's a completely unbelievable representation of Finn and Jake, and the obvious sex jokes and imagery throughout were juvenile and terribly done. I kid& nbsp;you not, there is actually porno-style blow job scene at the beginning of the episode when Ice King sends them an "email" with a virus attached to a video of a girl "eating her hair." The entire episode felt like it was written by a 17 year old boy. The guest animation was alright, but it felt like it's best suited for shows geared toward three and four year olds. This is the only episode of this show that I think I truly hated.

The animation of this episode was too ugly I'm glad the animators only did it on one episode or else the show would have gone downhill this should be number 1 - countnightdark13

The animation was ugly (It was supposed to be I guess) and this episode was creepy man! Still I do rate it a 9/10 because it wasn't perfect but it wasn't bad - SheepBuggy

This should be number one...

47 Crystals Have Power

Finn's kidnapped again and Jake's going through unimportant family crap with his unknown brother. Tree Trunks was creepy and kind of a pedophile because she's 80 something years old and wants a 13 year old boy as her soul mate.
