An ‘Adventure’ For Kids and Maybe For Their Parents, Too
Author Lev Grossman (senior book critic for Time) hasn’t been shy about his love for Adventure Time. Here he is talking to NPR explaining why the cartoon is so wonderful, including his personal connection with Ice King:
It’s very affecting. My dad has been going through having Alzheimer’s, and he’s forgotten so much about who he used to be. And I look at him and think this cartoon is about my father dying.
Listen for some insight from Pen, too. Thanks to Neda Ulaby for the nice segment.
