I have to confess, I didn't realize the show was post apocalyptic until I read the TV tropes page. I never thought to think all this high-tech stuff and nuclear waste had a purpose. I thought it was just random stuff thrown into the background. I mean, there are anthropomorphic candy people. Should I over-think this stuff?
And I'm not saying to overthink it, but Adventure Time has a lot more subtext than most kids shows.
And more character development. It's interesting.
Remember how I was wishing for the peace of oblivion a minute ago?
