The Inevitable Fall of Adventure Time

Larry_LeichliterFor every great show, there is an end, and it is now for Adventure Time. As far as I can tell, the end came when Larry Leichliter left the show in Feb. 2013. Leichliter has been in the business since 1975, and produced Chalkzone and directed The Fairly OddParents, as well as working on Spongebob Squarepants. Leichliter’s career can be seen on his IMDB page. Adventure Time has been pretty awful since then, with the exception of the episode Simon & Marcy, which actually made sense and added to the mythology of Ooo. Of course, that was also writer Rebecca Sugar’s last episode, so the end seems to be at hand. There’s more on all of this at The Land of Ooo Community. Maybe they’ve just spread themselves too thin with the comics and video games, but whatever the reason, I have little hope for the consistently fine work of the past. Rest in peace AT. And Chalkzone, I still miss you too!

    NO. PLEASE NO. Larry Leighliter has to come back! It sucks without him. I need my adventure time. It’s the best show in the world. At least finish season 5. If it’s about money, I’ll give Larry all of mine. PLEASE LARRY?!

      Well, I’m willing to admit I was wrong. There were some bizarre and unfunny episodes when Larry left, but somebody now has taken up the reins again, because the newest episodes don’t suck. Thank goodness! Does anyone know who took Larry’s place?
