Adventure Time’s “Princess Cookie” gets Comics Editor Carol in her heart zone.
In a lot of ways, Finn is who I would’ve wanted to be when I was a kid—if I couldn’t have Jake’s rad shapechanging abilities. (Shapechanging abilities are mathematical). I’m sure there are still boys upset at the thought of a girl pretending to be Finn, but it’s pretty clear that Finn, Jake and Adventure Time don’t mind girls being adventurers and boys being princesses and not just in the two episodes with Fionna and Cake, the gender and species-swapped versions of Finn and Jake. (Also, featuring the excellent Prince Gumball, voiced by Neil Patrick Harris). But while I love Fionna and Cake, somehow Princess Cookie got me in my heart zone.

Fionna and Cake, Monday at 8!!!
Adam and I really worked to make this one special. We changed it a lot, the outline actually had no Ice Queen in it at all! No ball, no crystal sword… act two used to be a date in a restaurant! We both knew we wanted more fighting, and if there had to be a date, it would be a date with swords and skulls and fighting!
Personally I wanted this episode to be a jab at, but also a huge celebration of, the feeling of being a fan, of allowing something completely ridiculous to make your heart tighten or even, in some small way, change how you feel about yourself. I’m so fascinated by that feeling, it’s beautiful and messed up and embarrassing, it’s the reason I wanted to make cartoons!
PS- I fought for Marshall Lee- I wrote him lines but they were cut for time! I practically begged Pen to let me work overtime to put him back in the episode, even in some small way. I wanted him to be voiced by Dante Basco.
tomorrow is my birthday, here’s a comic!
