Adventure Time has been heavily censored on Cartoon Network Australia. The censorship of this localization removes various scenes and statements in the show that are deemed inappropriate for young viewers. Although the PAL acceleration (for frame rate issue) might have contributed to the shortened time, most of the censorship has been removed due to sexually suggestive innuendo. This also includes some episode titles that have been renamed due to the censorship.

Incidentally, the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia also show this version of Adventure Time, so the censorship might have been performed by Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific, the owner of Cartoon Network channels in Asia and Oceania. There are some instances where the closed captions still retain some of the dialogue that was removed.

This censorship does not carry over to other channels as episodes are currently being aired in Australia on GO! uncensored. Also, like other series that were originally censored on Cartoon Network Australia, the DVD version of Adventure Time has been released uncensored by Madman Entertainment with a PG rating.

Season 1

Slumber Party Panic

Main article: Slumber Party Panic
  • Princess Bubblegum mentioning that she used to date Mr. Cream Puff was cut out.

Trouble in Lumpy Space

Main article: Trouble in Lumpy Space

This episode has the most edited content, but "Storytelling" has the most shaved time.

  • At the beginning, when everybody was at the Mallow Tea Party, Finn said, "Princess, this tea party sucks in a big way. But thanks for the invite." The word "sucks" has been muted, so the line says, "Princess, this tea party....in a big way! But thanks for the invite."
  • "Make Out" from "Make-Out Point" has been blocked out, making it "The Point."
  • Any sexual references were cut out of the episode, such as, "L.S.P., you're so bad..."
  • The part when Monty says, "Why are you sucking up to us?" was cut.
  • The sentence said by Lumpy Space Princess, "I'm really really sorry Finn, but I can't help you, because my parents are horrible idiots!" was edited, leaving, "I'm really really sorry Finn, but I can't help you."
  • The other sentence said by Lumpy Space Princess, "My friend Melissa has a car, but she's dating my ex-boyfriend Brad." was edited to, "My friend Melissa has a car."
  • This sentence was changed from, "Melissa, you should totally drive us to Make-Out Point, to make out with hot boys." to "Melissa, you should drive us to The Point, to..."
  • The sentence was changed from, "Yeah, lumpiness sucks!" to "Yeah, lumpiness."
  • The sentence was changed from, "This orb is the antidote, brah." to "This orb is the antidote.," because "brah" sounds like the homophone "bra."
  • Finn saying "Slam-a-cow!" was cut out.
  • Monty saying "Jam on, man." was changed to "On, man." because the Cartoon Network executives thought "Jam on" meant something sexual. This wasn't censored on Cartoon Network Asia.

The Enchiridion!

Main article: The Enchiridion! (episode)
  • The Heart Beast exploding and blood splattering all over the screen was cut.
  • Finn kicking the Dark Magician in the groin was edited, so when Finn's foot struck him, it would cut to a close-up of Finn's head shouting, "NEVER!" and the smoke dissipating after Finn kicked him. The clip of Finn's head was taken from the scene a few seconds later when Finn punches Key-per.
  • Mannish referencing Finn's "nard-kicking ability" was edited, so it would say "kicking ability."

The Jiggler

Main article: The Jiggler
  • Some of the Baby song was edited in Australia, such as "I gotta tuck you in, girl."
  • Any scene with the torn picture of the nude woman was zoomed into Finn, Jake and the Jiggler.

  • Shaved time: 2.75 seconds

Ricardio the Heart Guy

Main article: Ricardio the Heart Guy
  • The whole scene where Ice King accidentally kisses Jake's butt was cut. However, the scene in which Jake talks to Finn about how he wants Princess Bubblegum to kiss him as the Ice King did with Jake's butt was not cut, making it a rather confusing scene.
    • Surprisingly, when "Ricardio the Heart Guy" first aired in Australia, that scene wasn't cut. However, the censors must have recognized the (supposed by them) sexual reference in Jake's butt and quickly "patched up" the episode to make it cleaner.

Trivia

  • Adventure Time is not the only censored series on Cartoon Network International. Others include:
  • Cartoon Network Australia censors scenes with lip-on-lip kissing, while scenes with someone being kissed on the cheek seems to be allowed by them.
    • Death giving Jake the "Kiss of Death" in "Death in Bloom" doesn't appear to be censored in any way, so that fans won't have to figure out how Jake turned back to normal.
    • Another instance of kissing on the lips is in the episode "Wizard Battle" (premiered August 29, 2011) due to its importance to the plot.
  • Even though the word "sucks" is considered moderately explicit, it's only censored in a few episodes.
  • It won't censor some things on Netflix.
  • Six episodes so far have been refused to air in both Cartoon Network Australia and Cartoon Network Asia. Those episodes include, "His Hero", "the Creeps", "Jake Vs. Me-Mow", "Ghost Princess", "The Suitor", and "Love Games".
  • On the Free-to-Air Australian Channel Go! All versions are uncensored, and un changed from the Cartoon Network Australia Variants.
