Jake the Dog – Adventure Time
We all know the famous animated cartoon series “Adventure Time” created by Pendleton Ward.
Moreover, we all love it!
Adventure Time has a long history, but the story is about the two protagonists, Jake and Finn protect the citizens of the Land of Ooo from various interesting creatures.
Jake the Dog is a fictional character and one of the main cast in the television series. Besides being Finn’s best friend, he is also his adoptive brother. He is Finn’s constant companion, and a shape-shifting dog hybrid about 30 years of age in “magical dog years”.
He was created by Joshua and an extra-dimensional creature so Jake has a unique set of abilities called Stretchy Powers that allow him to manipulate his shape, he can stretch, change almost any size of his body ranging from gigantic to incredibly small and also mold any part of his body.
On top Jake not only have magical powers, he has natural musical talent too. Jake is a natural born singer and dancer, in fact, his first words were a song and dance.
Jake as a musician, mostly with the viola, which can have strange effects when playing certain pieces for example Beethoven. Jake’s viola is also the home of Shelby the Worm and has the word “toots” on the back.
Jake does not share Finn’s aggressive style of fighting, Jake does more than punch and kick. Jake acts as a confidant mentor despite having a tendency to give somewhat questionable advice.
Jake has a laid-back attitude in most situations, he’s mainly focusing on overpowering the opponent with his giant size and weight and stretch and knot them up; but this technique is only effective on certain characters like Ice King, whereas Hunson Abadeer can break free almost instantly. He loves adventure and eagerly fights throughout his friend, Finn needs to. His elastic strength greatly contributes help Finn considerably in combat and transportation but are also sometimes used as nothing more than funny forms of expression.
This is how Jake joins Finn in his butt-kicking and crime-solving adventures.
From its early days, “Adventure Time” not only enchanted younger viewers but managed to win over countless older ones initially skeptical of its attraction.
Since Ward first launched the saga as a surreal short film, its episodes have oscillated; the diverse characters waking up to the world and gags, sometimes within a few minutes.
Not since “The Simpsons” has a major network supported such a weird combination and gotten away with it for so long. However, Cartoon Network never knew quite how to handle the way “Adventure Time” took off.
