Adventure Time has been heavily censored on non-American localizations of Cartoon Network. The censorship of this localization removes various scenes and statements in the show that may be deemed inappropriate for younger viewers. Although PAL acceleration (for frame rate issue) may have contributed to the shortened time, most of the censorship has been removed due to sexually suggestive innuendo. This includes episode titles that have been changed due to the censorship.
The censorship may 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! and ABC3 uncensored (Although, GO shows several different episodes with scenes cut out on occasion). 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.

- 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."

- 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.
