My Thoughts:

Have you heard about the hit cartoon series on the Cartoon Network called Adventure Time?  If not, then where have you been.  Over 10 million children (and parents) have tuned it to his animated series, since season 3 began in July 2011.  And, thanks its popularity amongst children and adults alike, the episode It Came From the Nightosphere has even earned an Emmy nomination -- so, you know it has to be good.  

My husband makes a point to watch Finn and Jake, the two main characters is this Monday night cartoon, with Savannah each week. It has become a father/daughter ritual, to help wind down after a crazy time.  I really don't think Savannah likes it, but she sure does like the cuddle time with Daddy on the bed watching it.  This DVD, which will be releasing on March 6th, with include the Emmy nominated episode, as well as 15 other adventure packed episodes, that will make Adventure Time fans go crazy.  My husband said one of his favorites episodes next to It Came From the Nightosphere was The Real You.  But, the other episodes were just as entertaining. I should know, as he has watched this DVD with Savannah a few times since we received it.

So, if you have an Adventure Time fan in the house, make sure you pick up this DVD when it releases on March 6th.  It would make for a great Easter basket gift, too.
