Adventure Time - Season 5

This season comprises 52 episodes, making it twice the length of any of the show's previous seasons. The episodes were storyboarded and written by Tom Herpich, Jesse Moynihan, Cole Sanchez, Rebecca Sugar, Steve Wolfhard, Skyler Page, Somvilay Xayaphone, Ako Castuera, Michael DeForge, Kent Osborne, David OReilly, Ward, Graham Falk, Thomas Wellmann, Luke Pearson, Seo Kim, and Andy Ristaino. The season also featured OReilly and James Baxter as guest animators in the episodes "A Glitch is a Glitch" and "James Baxter the Horse," respectively. Furthermore, this was the last year of Adventure Time to feature Sugar and Page as they both left before the season ended to create their own shows. (Sugar with Steven Universe; Page with Clarence). It was also the final season to feature Ward as the showrunner.

The first episode of the fifth season was the two-parter episode "Finn the Human" / "Jake the Dog," both of which aired on November 12, 2012. 3.435 million viewers viewed the episode; this marked a dramatic increase from the previous season's premiere and finale. The season ended with "Billy's Bucket List," which was viewed by 2.335 million viewers.

The season was met with largely positive critical reception. In June 2013, the series was nominated for "Best Animated Series" at the 2013 Critics' Choice Television Awards, although it did not win. Both "Simon & Marcy" and "Be More" were nominated for Primetime Emmy Awards for Short-Format Animation at the 65th and 66th Primetime Emmy Awards respectively. Former character designer Andy Ristaino and series' art director Nick Jennings both won Emmys for "Outstanding Individual Achievement In Animation" in 2013 and 2014, respectively. In addition, several compilation DVDs that contained episodes from the season have been released. The complete season set was released on DVD and Blu-ray on July 14, 2015.

The season follows the adventures of Finn the Human, a human boy, and his best friend Jake, a dog with magical powers to change shape and grow and shrink at will. Finn and Jake live in the post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo, wherein they interact with the other major characters, including Princess Bubblegum, The Ice King, Marceline the Vampire Queen, Lumpy Space Princess, BMO, and Flame Princess. Common storylines revolve around Finn and Jake discovering strange creatures, dealing with the antagonistic but misunderstood Ice King, and battling monsters to help others.[1] Multi-episode storylines for this season include Finn's relationship with and eventual breakup with Flame Princess,[2] Lemongrab's descent into tyranny,[3] and Finn and Jake's attempt to prevent the Lich from destroying all life in the multiverse.[4] The season ends on a cliffhanger, with the revelation that Finn's father is still alive.[5]

On October 12, 2012, it was announced that Cartoon Network had officially renewed Adventure Time for a fifth season.[6] The episode titles were released on November 2, 2012 by Frederator Studios, while the show had just reached the end of its fourth season. Based on production numbers, "Finn the Human" was the first episode that underwent production, and it was also the first episode aired.[7] The season contains 52 episodes, twice the normal number of episodes per season. Both Frederator and storyboard artist Jesse Moynihan explained that originally, a four-part special was supposed to divide the season in half, but that the special was pushed off,[7] and later cancelled.[8] However, some elements of the planned special were later used in the show's sixth season's episode "Something Big".[9] In production, the first half of the season was referred to as season 5.1, and the second half was referred to as 5.2.[10]

This season's episodes were produced in a process similar to those of the previous seasons. Each episode was outlined in two-to-three pages that contained the necessary plot information.[11] These outlines were then handed to storyboard artists, who created full storyboards.[12] Design and coloring were done at Cartoon Network Studios in Burbank, California, and animation was handled overseas in South Korea by Rough Draft Korea and Saerom Animation.[13][14][15] Although almost all of the episodes are hand-animated, the fifteenth episode, "A Glitch Is a Glitch", was created by guest animator David OReilly in his signature 3-D animation.[6] According to Adam Muto, OReilly was brought on board after Ward expressed an interest in letting him helm an episode. Initially, the producers had wanted OReilly to appear in earlier seasons, but the network was hesitant to bring in guest directors. Eventually, the network relented, and he was finally approved to appear in the fifth season.[16] British animator James Baxter guest animated the horse featured in the episode "James Baxter the Horse".[17] For the first half of the season, the writers room was largely composed of Ward, Kent Osborne, and Pat McHale. McHale eventually left the series to create Over the Garden Wall,[18] and Jack Pendarvis and the newly promoted Muto and were brought on board to pen story outlines.[19][20]

The season was storyboarded and written by Tom Herpich, Moynihan, Cole Sanchez, Sugar, Steve Wolfhard, Skyler Page, Somvilay Xayaphone, Castuera, Michael DeForge, Osborne, OReilly, Ward, Graham Falk, Thomas Wellmann, Luke Pearson, Seo Kim, and Ristaino.[a] "Little Dude" was the first entry in the series to have been storyboarded by prop and character designer DeForge. He wrote on his official Tumblr that, "Cole and Adam Muto basically held my hand through the whole process, and were both incredibly patient with me."[21] Starting with "Love Games", Ristaino was promoted from lead character designer to storyboard artist.[22] Guest artist Falk, creator of the animated series Untalkative Bunny, storyboarded the episodes "Shh!" and "Root Beer Guy".[23][24] The former was dedicated to Armen Mirzaian who was a storyboard artist for earlier episodes in the series. Mirzaian died in a car accident on February 21, 2013 at the age of 35.[25][26][27] Regular storyboarder Castuera had to take off two storyboard rotations due to an art show, and so her partner, Moynihan, worked with German cartoonist Wellmann on "The Suitor" and "Wizards Only, Fools"; the two co-operated on their storyboards via Skype and Google+ Hangout.[28] Pearson was paired with Xayaphone for both the episodes "Candy Streets" and "Frost & Fire"; however, this pairing was only temporary, and Xayaphone boarded the rest of the season with Kim.[29] This season was the last to feature Page and Sugar. Page left after completing "Davey" to create his own series Clarence.[30] Sugar left the series after storyboarding the episode "Simon & Marcy" to focus her attention on her own Cartoon Network series, Steven Universe.[31]

The episode "All Your Fault" was the last regular episode of the season to feature a "directed by" credit.[32] The subsequent episode, "Little Dude", only credited Muto as "supervising director" and Nick Jennings as "art director".[33] Muto later explained that, "No one currently gets the 'directed by' credit."[34] Both Muto and Nate Cash had, in previous episodes, been credited as creative directors, but according to Muto, the series decided to phase the title out in favor of "supervising director".[34] For the first half of the season, both Muto and Cash took turns holding the supervising director credit on different episodes.[33][35] Starting with "Shh!", however, Elizabeth Ito, a former storyboard artist for the show in season one, returned to the series and was also credited as supervising director in place of Muto.[36] "Bad Little Boy", the season's eleventh episode, however, still had a "directed by" credit.[37] This is due to the fact that the episode was produced before "Little Dude", but aired out of order.[7] "A Glitch Is a Glitch" also featured a "directed by" credit, but this is due to the fact that the episode's director, OReilly, was a guest animator and director for the series.[6]

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Ward revealed that he stepped down as series showrunner sometime during this season in favor of Muto. He explained that, as a naturally introverted person, he found it extremely exhausting having to deal with people every day. With that being said, Ward remained working on the series as a storyboard artist and storyline writer, and every single fifth-season episode (with the exception of "A Glitch is a Glitch") featured story input by Ward.[38][39]

Several voices actors and actresses reprise their characters in this season. Emo Philips reprises his fourth season character Cuber in both "Five More Short Graybles" and "Another Five Short Graybles".[43][47] Andy Milonakis reprises his role as N.E.P.T.R. in "Mystery Dungeon".[40][43] "Bad Little Boy" features Neil Patrick Harris returning as Prince Gumball, Madeleine Martin reprising the role of Fionna, and Roz Ryan reappearing as Cake.[48] Keith David once again voices the Flame King in "Vault of Bones", "Earth & Water", and "The Red Throne".[40] Davey Johnson reappears as the goblin king Xergiok in "The Great Bird Man"; he also voices the titular character in the episode "Davey".[49][50] "Davey" also features Randy Liedtke as a candy person named Randy.[50] Steve Little, who plays the recurring role as Peppermint Butler, also reprises his role as Abracadaniel in "Wizards Only, Fools" and "Play Date".[51][52] Maurice LaMarche reprises his role as Grand Master Wizard in both "Wizards Only, Fools" and "Betty".[51][53] Musical parody artist "Weird Al" Yankovic reprises his role as Banana Man in "We Fixed a Truck".[54] Noah Nelson reprises his role as Kee-Oth the demon in the two-parter "Play Date" and "The Pit", having first appeared in the third-season episode "Dad's Dungeon".[52][55] Osborne reprises his recurring role as Finn and Jake's dad, Joshua, in the episode "The Pit".[56] Ron Lynch returns to the series in "Apple Wedding", voicing Mr. Pig.[57] Jeff Bennett reprises his role as Choose Goose in the episode "Blade of Grass", and also voices an alternate-universe version of the character named Choose Bruce in the episode "Finn the Human."[58][59] Miguel Ferrer reprises his role as Death, and Steve Agee returns as Ash in "Betty".[53] Both Lou Ferrigno, Andy Samberg, and Mark Hamill return in "Billy's Bucket List" as Billy, Party Pat, and the Fear Feaster, respectively.[5] 041b061a72
