Adventure Time: Puhoy, Review
Mmm. Pillow fort fantasies.
Puhoy is really just one big fantasy episode. When it’s raining swords outside in a Sword Storm (teehee) Jake is building a fairly epic pillow fort. Finn on the other hand, is all bummed that Flame Princess doesn’t like him anymore because she didn’t laugh at his joke. If you’ve been (or are) young and in a relationship, we all feel for him in his time of confusion. He decides to head into the pillow fort to think it out, not taking Jakes warning to get lost in his thoughts.
Ok, the pillow world is pretty funny, from pillow birds that poo tiny blankets that softly fall to the ground. To pillow doughnuts for eating. Finn essentially spends the rest of his life in this world, as we see him growing in age every time it cuts back to him. He gets married, has half pillow children, searches for the portal back to his world until he’s a frail old grumpy man on his deathbed. One of the interesting things to note is that he has a robotic pillow right arm, just like Farmworld Finn from the “Finn the Human” episode that started this current season. I don’t know about you guys, but this had a touch of C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe feel for me. Even after he “dies” and slides out of the top of the pillow fort. Starts to tell Jake and BMO about his dream, gets a phone call from Flame Princess that she just now got his joke and it was awesome.
Then he forgets what the dream was about.
A whole life lived, and forgotten. Is Adventure Time trying to get all deeeeep thoughts on us or am I just over thinking it.
Oh, and this was the first time Jake has talked about his kids since the “jake the dad” episode. When BMO asks him why he doesn’t play with his kids like he is with BMO. Jake tells BMO that rainicorn pups age fast and don’t need their parents hours after they’re born. Then he just gets a little sad face. I feel for you Jake, nobody wants their kids to not depend on them.
OH, and Jonathan Frakes or Commander William T. Riker of Star Trek: Next Generation/bearded manly man of awesome provides the voice of older Finn in this episode.
