“M-m-m-money”

Finn and Jake discover the free market! By free market, I mean they finally decide to spend the massive pile of treasure effecting the structural integrity of their treehouse. Treasure that they’ve stolen and horded forever, but never really had any intentions of doing anything with it, until now.

Ahh, what do you do if you have too much money, literally too much loot? Ya dump it all into a fountain in the center of the Wildberry Kingdom and go mad with power spending it! Well, at least Jake goes a little crazy, losing his sense of morality trying to make the berry people do weird stuff when he finds out that tossing coinage at peeps can get them to do things for his enjoyment.

This week’s episode opens on Finn and Jake soaking in some sun while BMO and NEPTR pretend to be Robbing Hood and the Sheriff of Naughty-Hams (At least dictated by BMO, he’s so damn cute, I want a BMO). NEPTR wants to play Friar Tux, but BMO needs a villain to fight so he draws a mustache on his friend. Because, a mustache is all you need to be the bad guy, right? More importantly, it’s facial hair that Friar Tux would never have. More importantly, while playing, they crack the treehouse and all the loot we’ve seen piled up forever spill out, loot that includes Ancient Psychic Tandem War Elephant. Finn tells Ancient Psychic Tandem War Elephant to just chill, so it does, outside…then Finn and Jake just drive off with all the loot. Off to spend it all at the Wildberry Kingdom while Ancient Psychic Tandem War Elephant chills outside simply stating “I continue to chill.”. Stay chill Ancient Psychic Tandem War Elephant, we can only hope you’ll have some use in future episodes.

It seems the moral of this episode, is that spending money can corrupt you, I think? Cause, making spouses sleep on opposite sides of the bed, and how much money it would take to make someone lick dust off of dusty things is bad. I know that if I had to switch sides of the bed with my wife, I wouldn’t know what to do with myself, my side is just, MY DAMN SIDE. Or is the moral of the episode that hoarding money can really effect the structural integrity of your house. No, the moral of the story is that going evil with power by spending gold with reckless abandon will get you ironically encased in said gold. Wait, maybe it’s if you have a Ancient Psychic Tandem War Elephant, you should make more use of it.

I’m going with that.

This episode is just a fun little break before the Fionna and Cake episode next week. Ok, breathe. Breaaaathe. Yes, Fionna and Cake are coming back next episode! I wonder if they have a Ancient Psychic Tandem War Elephant.
