Come on, grab your friends
We'll go to very distant lands
With Jake the Dog and Finn the Human
The fun will never end, it's Adventure Time!"
Hey Instructabrarians, What Time is It?...... ADVENTURE TIME!
Folks, I frickin' LOVE this show! Aside from perhaps Regular Show (Hmmm, perhaps I should dedicate a future 'ible to that too...), Adventure Time is, in this author's opinion, the single greatest show ever to come out of 2010. And who can argue? This Cartoon Network original series about a young human boy (Finn The Human) and his magical transforming dog (Jake The Dog) as they travel the mystical Land Of Ooo is such an amazing character based show, featuring such an excellent cast of characters, stellar animation, great humor and Crowning Moments Of Heartwarming that it's hard not to fall in love with it.
But perhaps one of the things I love best about AT is the show's own extreme dedication to it's fans. Frederator Studios has done a tremendous job of reaching out to their fans from providing them with the show's storyboards and character sketches to even creating an entire blog just to showcase all of the fantastic fan art people have created. That's dedication and as both a fan of the show and of reverse engineering I have a lot of respect for that.
Now I know I've posted quite a bit of interesting reverse engineering projects based on PIXAR characters (ie Luxo Jr, Auto, my Microbe Obliterator cleaning bot) but for my first and only Adventure Time fan art I knew I had to make it great, as a tribute to both the show and its fantastic fanbase. This build took me a long time to complete but I am finally done and I can't wait to show all of you! So in honor of the last week of Instructables' Video Game Month (aw....) and the show's very first anniversary (April 5th), I decided to build a real working replica of Finn and Jake's cute video game system Beemo!
Also, I just realized this- 10th Official Step By Step Instructable ever!
Editor's Note: Special thanks to Daniel van Beek for his Beemo Fan Art and my Instructabrarian shout out for this week also goes to houseofdarkly for this site's very first Adventure Time themed instructable. Finally, since Adventure Time is a show that seems to strive on How To guides, I offer this Instructable in response to Frederator's Finm Hats.
