Worst Adventure Time Episodes
The Top Ten
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.
So, this is what happens when adventure time episode creators get bored:
How about we make an episode when all the candy people turn into zombies?
We already made that episode, dingus.
Okay, how about an episode when Jake and Lady Rainicorn have babies?
We already made that episode too, double dingus.
I give up, I'm out of ideas. let's just make an episode with different animation and nothing else.
Okay, fine. Let's do it. - SheepBuggy
Eh, this is OK. - AlphaQV 6 Comments
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.
The episode isn't good but who cares about the educational part. - Pixtol
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. - AlphaQV 23 Comments
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.V 1 Comment
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)V 4 Comments
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.
Yeah, we got to see the promised fire vs. ice fight, but it was started for a stupid, STUPID reason.
Hey, Finn, you're supposed to be a hero, right? Does manipulating the person you love to beat up an innocent person via insults you KNEW would cut her deep so you can get a wet dream sound the least bit HEROIC?
Finn, you are just as terrible as Modern SPONGEBOB in this episode. - alphadan12
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
It had a great story, but sadly a bad develpoment. I mean, Finn doesn't get excited that humans now exist in Ooo, didn't he gets sad when he thougth he would be the only human in Ooo? Why doesn't he gets happy when Betty comes to ooo? Or when Simon gets back as a Human? Also, the climax was so quickly, Finn, Jake and Marceline dind't made something and it was a waste of time of jokes.
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!
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
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.
Not even a good filler episode, reeked of desperation and awful narrative.V 4 Comments
The only thing I remember about this episode was that I didn't like it. Or how annoying it was
Mortimer was nothing but an cultist which acted as a kid entertainer with his pair of "chips-ice creamese" fairies. It's annoying but beautiful.
Disgusting and retarded. Blame nobody but yourself, Ice King.
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!
ADVENTURE TIME! YOU SUPPOSED TO BE ALL ABOUT AMAZING ADVENTURES! NOT STUPID PLOTS LIKE THIS!

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.V 4 Comments
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!V 2 Comments
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.
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 was the worst season of the showV 5 Comments
Come on people this episode and gut grinder are good
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.V 2 Comments
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. - MKBeastV 2 Comments
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.V 1 Comment
