One the best cartoon theme songs is from one of the greatest cartoons of the millennium, Adventure Time. It was written the creator of the show Pendleton Ward. The rest of the music from the cartoon has been written by Ashley Eriksson, Casey James Basichis, and Tim Kiefe.

Adventure Time Theme Song

The song is really catchy. It’s essentially the same theme as the animated short that was produced before Pendleton Ward’s cartoon began to air on Cartoon Network. There are of course some differences. In fact, only acoustic guitar and voice are present in the pilot’s theme. There’s actually no acoustic guitar in the real theme song, Ward decided to switch to a ukulele and the pitch of his voice is a bit higher to compensate. Ward talks in detail about the production of the intro in this interview

Adventure Time Theme Song Lyrics

It’s ad-venture time,
c’mon grab your friends,
we’ll go to very
distant lands.
With Jake the dog and
Finn the hu-man, the
fun will never
end, it’s adventure
time!

Adventure Time Intro

Fiona and Cake Song

One alternate version of the theme was used in the Fionna and Cake episode. Natasha Allegri replaces Ward on the vocals and the lyrics change slightly to make the new characters.

It’s ad-venture time,
c’mon grab your friends,
we’ll go to very
distant lands.
With Cake the cat and
Fionna the hu-man, the
fun will never
end, it’s adventure
time!
