Thank you Cartoon Network for sending us this DVD to review!
Adventure Time: Frost & Fire is a collection of sixteen episodes from seasons one, three, four, five, and six. The title episode begins with Finn and the Flame Princess on a date and the Ice King gets in the way. Hilarity ensues when the Ice King and the Flame Princess duke it out. Not only was this fight entertaining to watch, Finn experienced a pleasant dream that he wanted to experience again. To make that happen he sends fake letters to both parties and waits for the battle to take place. While he gets to see them fight again, and experiences a variation of his original dream, Finn regrets his actions and attempts to make things right.
Other than the title episode some of my favorites include Jake the Brick where Jake wants to experience the collapse of an old beat up shack, by being one of its bricks. Since being a brick is pretty boring, he entertains himself by narrating the nature around him. Little does he know that Finn is broadcasting his rambling across Candy Kingdom with the help of a walkie-talkie.
I was pleasantly surprised to find another gender reversing episode with Fiona and Cake in The Prince Who Wanted Everything. Lumpy Space Prince takes the lead role in that episode. Since season five or six have not come out on Blu-Ray or DVD yet, many of these episodes were new to us. There are some classics thrown in like Memories of Boom Boom Mountain that explain how Finn and Jake met.
While the list price is under $20, it can be yours for less than twelve dollars on Amazon. There is close to three hours of entertainment (176 minutes) to be had in this DVD collection. While this DVD can provide hours of entertainment for people of all ages, make sure you're okay with fart jokes before letting youngsters watch this show. Despite the juvenile potty humor, there are redeeming qualities and good lessons to be learned from this series.
