Review: Adventure Time "Jake the Dad"

     So, Lady Rainicorn had the puppies. Five to be exact.  After Finn and BMO leave Jake behind to live with Lady and the pups, Jake begins to be stressed out by the pressures of fatherhood.  He starts to read them a book about a wolf that eats babies and discovers that it is not age appropriate and throws it out the window.  Foxes discover it and decide that they are going to start eating babies, just as Jake takes the pups for a walk.  Jake falls asleep on the walk and the pups start playing.  Jake freaks out and Lady calls back the pups.  Jake gets mistaken for a baby and gets carted off by the foxes and the pups come to his rescue.  They share a heartfelt moment and Jake returns to live with Finn saying that the pups have aged enough to take care of themselves.
     I feel that it was a good episode, with a small reference to the three episode Lich arc a few months ago with the barn being the same as the one in the Farmworld (correct me if I am wrong).  I think that this wrapped up the pregnancy line too soon and removed what would have been an interesting dynamic on the show.  It could have been written as the pups would be cared for by the Candy Kingdom or Lady herself, but aging them to the point where they can take care of themselves removes them as a factor.

I rate this episode 8.5 out of 10 because the episode itself was good, however if they ended them still as pups it would have made a longer story.

Final Rating: 8.5/10

Tune in next week at 7:30 for "Davey."
