Cartoon Network's 'Adventure Time' Ending in 2018

“Cartoon Network just announced the impending series finale of Adventure Time, the sci-fi/fantasy post-apocalyptic musical fairy-tale rom-com coming-of-age sitcom epic starring Jake the Dog and Finn the Human.

In an official statement, Cartoon Network promised the final run of Adventure Time episodes will encompass ‘142 half-hours of content,’ which includes new episodes, miniseries, specials, and some mysterious “more.” (By comparison, the complete run of Game of Thrones so far only represents about 120 half-hours of content.)

Created by Pendleton Ward, Adventure Time premiered in 2010 and became a hit for the network, drawing large audiences and earning a raft of awards. The show garnered critical praise and occupied a unique nexus between hip alt-comedy and Comic-Con friendly geekdom, with guest stars including Marc Maron and Ron Perlman.”

EARTH-2 WELLS AND JESSE RETURN TO CENTRAL CITY

Barry (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash are thrilled to reunite with Earth-2 Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Jesse (guest star Violett Beane).

THRILLED. Did you hear that? THRILLED. Not shocked or surprised, but out-and-out hugging, dancing, popping champagne THRILLED.

Wells confides to Barry and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker)

Here for all the Barrison and Snowells interactions. Given Danielle’s tweet about Tom being inspiring on set, it looks like Harry and Caitlin might have a lot to do together.

ALSO Judalina Neira, one of the writers, has a “story by” credit on the 3x07 Killer Frost ep, which suggests it’s possible these episodes are in some way related. How about Caitlin convincing Harry that Jesse needs to embrace her powers… while simultaneously hiding her own popsicle-making abilities?

AND the fact it says Harry “confides” in them suggests Jesse doesn’t just show up in the Cortex in a flash, holding Harry by his backpack. Which I really want to see.

that Jesse has all the powers of a speedster and has been saving people on his Earth.

I wonder if this means “Jesse saved two people and Harry freaked out” or “Jesse has a crimefighting career with a name and suit.” I’m assuming the former. Maybe we’ll see it in the 3x02 stinger? I’ll be annoyed if they show up all “so much cool stuff has been happening… which we won’t show you… but it was so cool!”

He is concerned about her safety and wants them to talk her out of using her powers.

Yes Harry that is so totally going to work. Fine, Caitlin is usually very cautious, but BARRY? Bartholomew “Safety First!” Allen??? The best that’s going to happen is Barry gives her some training and a “don’t fuck up the timeline more than once a year” talk.

SO looking forward to Tom crushing it and Violett being awesome and YEAH TEAM FLASH FUNTIMES.

Not That You Asked To Know, But Here’s The Possible Origin Of Jeffry From Virtua Fighter, You’re Welcome

Not sure if anyone has noticed, but several posts over the past few have featured various interpretations of video game characters by living, breathing human beings. Mostly those from the Super Mario universe, though not all. Well, how one more?

Recently I brought up an older post, one that looked at the time a Virtua Fighter character became a professional wrestler in the real world. Wolf Hawkfield (who’s actually a wrestler himself in the VF universe) stepped into All Japan Pro Wrestling’s virtual ring for a game called appropriately enough All Japan Pro Wrestling Featuring Virtua (for the Sega Saturn; he’d also show up in the Dreamcast sequel, Giant Gram).  

But Wolf wasn’t the only Virtua Fighter to guest star. He was joined by Jeffry McWild (whose occupation was that of a fisherman, though he was still a brawler, so the pairing with Wolf still made sense). I then wondered if there was someone pretending to be him as well at the time, to co-promote. The answer was no. Though I recently decided to double check and came across this back and worth via HelloMrKearns’s Tumblr, which included the animated gif above. Of Willy Williams, a former wrestler and mixed martial artist.

Williams (whose first name was also Willie) sported many looks throughout his career, though the one above bears a very close resemblance to Jeffery. And wouldn’t you know, at one point, during VF’s development, Jeffrey had a different name…

So yeah, possible mystery that you didn’t even know existed solved! The galaxy is now truly at peace.

Anyway, if you’re not that much of a Virtua Fighter fan yet you’ve read this far, thanks for sticking around! As a thank you, here’s Bob & David, or Mr. Show fame, playing Smash Bros, courtesy of Getty Images and HelloMrKearns’s Twitter
