Daily reminder that she's a genocidal dictator who performs barbaric experiments on her own subjects.
...who did nothing wrong.
No, not really. There's postmodern aspects, but the show, as a whole, adheres to a consistent plot with a definitive origin story and characters that develops linearly.
Space Dandy is a bit Postmodern, but you said you didn't want anime.
It's new sincerity with a fa handful of post modern episodes.
The firs two seasons are great, but it takes a nosedive after that. All of it is still worth watching though.
Elaborating on this:
Postmodernity means a lot of different things when applied to different mediums.
Postmodern art (or animation, I guess) presents subjects that are wholly fabricated and singular. Where a modernist painting of shoes might convey a story of sorts (who wore the shoes, what function they served, etc), a postmodern painting of shoes simply presents the subject with little (if any) subtext. Sure, you could write that onto the image, but that's a fiction that you're creating beyond the purpose of the image. Most cartoons tend to have that sort of rhizomic structure in their art/designs that lacks a depth of narrative--Spongebob, for instance, never changes in appearance and is always presented the same way. On the other hand, we can see Finn's hair grow, he gets new swords, he lost an arm, so on and so forth.
Postmodern stories are ones that are fractured or 'plateaued' in nature. The notion of a linear or ongoing narrative is an illusion. Space Dandy (as offered up earlier) recognizes and adheres to this, constantly killing and bringing back its main characters. Adventure Time, on the other hand, builds upon its narrative in order to create a linear story with roots that can be traced. A lot of people equate Postmodernity to disorder--but it's more like disorientation. Momento is a postmodern film in terms of narrative. Journey is a postmodern game in terms of narrative. The stories create a sort of feedback loop that undermines the typical 'profound reality' established by a narrative.
So, really, if you want some super postmodern cartoons, look no further than the 'reset button' sorts of shows that are a dime a dozen.
Not to say that some episodes or arcs of Adventure Time aren't incredibly postmodern. There's a lot that undermines the reality established within the show, but, ultimately, there's a more profound story and reality evident within the Adventure Time universe.
This is why she's the best character on the show. Better than both, Marcy and Flame Princess combined.
What happens if Bubs turns into Quilby and kills all of her people? you know for science
i want her to be my
Did they ever even specify they meant Princess Bubblegum? I know Peace Master didn't. I thought the entire point of that episode was to paint "EVIL" in big red letters above Peppermint Butler's head.
