Dorkpool: Ok, so we’re in the same boat.
Mirror: Yeah, a boat full of passengers ill-informed about newer Cartoon Network TV shows.
Dorkpool: Sounds like a fun boat. Anyway, let’s watch some crappy lost episodes, and Riff this bitch!
When the show 'Adventure Time' first aired, it seemed a bit happy and random.
Dorkpool: (Narrator): And also pretty trippy.
The characters seemed to be always happy, and with a happy atmosphere it just seemed like a good show for children to watch and enjoy.
Mirror: Wait, so was it happy? You really need to clarify that.
Recently the show has been getting darker, with weird and twisted endings, I was in shock of how disturbing some things have been lately.
Dorkpool: You know, everybody complained once the Piraka came along.
Mirror: Wait, isn’t that BIONICLE?
Dorkpool: The point still stands.
Then I got online on a blog about the show. People were complaining about a scheduled episode not being aired, and being replaced.
A list of every episode for season 3 was leaked a while ago, months before the season. Every episode seemed casual, except for episode 7, 2 episodes after he was first introduced. It was named 'Death of Lemongrab'. At the time, no one knew who this Lemongrab character was, but with the launch of episode 5, people found out.
Mirror: (Narrator): And boy, were they disappointed.
'Death of Lemongrab' never aired on television, but was said to be leaked. The episode "Still" replaced 'Death of Lemongrab' and the leaked list couldn't be found online. It seemed that no one had saved the file for the list, as far as we know.
About 11 months ago, an episode of 'Regular Show' had ended on Cartoon Network.
Dorkpool: (Narrator): Since then, the ‘Regular Show’ never ended. Ever.
A short message appeared on the screen however, it only showed for half a second but my eyes caught it, I spent 20 minutes trying to pause my TV at the right time to see the message that was left behind.
Mirror: (Narrator): I have no life outside of ‘Adventure Time,’ as you can see.
The message said;
"I work on making scripts for 'Adventure Time'. I have put the download link for 'Death of Lemongrab' online. The link is: [the link]". I refuse to put the link up, 1. Because I have lost the paper I wrote it on, 2. Because it gave my old laptop a massive virus, and 3. Because words can not describe how disturbing the episode was.
Dorkpool: (Narrator): Words can’t describe how disturbing the episode was, which is exactly why you’ll use words to describe the episode.
I downloaded the file and my computer shut down instantly. I rebooted it and the only file on my desktop was "deathoflem.mov". I opened it, and I regret it.
The episode didn't have its normal intro, the music was sad and distorted and the color scheme was negative. The theme song ended with out the normal "Adventure Time!" saying. It instantly went on to the episode after that, the whole world was black and white, and it was Princess Bubblegum walking down a sidewalk whistling, with an occasional cough. this continued for about 5 minutes and then the audio went out.
Mirror: You know, I’m kind of impressed that you watched an episode that was, for the first five minutes, one character walking down a sidewalk while whistling. That shows dedication, man.
Princess Bubblegum stopped dead in her tracks and stared to the left for half a minute, the screen moved and you saw the back of Lemongrabs head, after about 3 minutes his head turned completely backwards and his face was cut and bruised with blood streaming down his face.
Dorkpool: (Lemongrab): They’re here.
The scene played for 2 and a half minutes and then the video went black.
After 30 seconds the video turned back on and showed Finn and Jake's tree house, it was burned down and destructed.
Mirror: Not destructed! Noooo! You damn, dirty apes! You destructed it!
after 30 seconds it cut into a scene with Finn and Jake laying on the ground looking brutally murdered, Jake had a knife in his back and Finn had bullet holes surrounding his chest, for the last 3 seconds of the video it showed lemongrab smiling with blood dripping out of his eyeholes and the episode cut.
Dorkpool: (Narrator): In case you’re wondering, yes, I did time all of that.
I sold my Computer on eBay for $0.99.
Whoever has it now has seen the video.
Mirror: Well, yeah. You sold a laptop for less than a dollar. It’s a pretty good deal. You pretty much invited people to see the video.
Whoever has it now has been disturbed.
Dorkpool: Or mildly annoyed.
Dorkpool: This story sucks.
Mirror: It has almost every bad lost episode/haunted game cliché in the book. It’s got the “I sold it on eBay” thing from “NES Godzilla”; the “I got a link to the video from the creator, and the video fucked up my computer” from “Dead Bart”; the “fucked up visuals” from every lost episode story ever; and the “measuring time pretty damn well” from “Sonic.exe.” Hell, a lot of the clichés make no sense in context. For example, why did the maker of the episode put a little message at the end of an episode of Regular Show explicitly giving a link to this episode? And why did the narrator sell his laptop on eBay for $0.99? Was it because he couldn’t get the video off? If so, why not just destroy it? I mean, he obviously wasn’t selling it for a profit. Hell, selling it for that low is pretty much inviting people to watch the video. Also, there’s something I never really quite got when it comes to lost episodes: why watch this stuff if quite a bit of it is nothing but messed up visuals? I mean, if it had a disturbing plot or something, that’d be one thing, but this episode has no plot. It’s walking, fucked up Lemongrab, and death. I mean, it seems more boring than anything.
Dorkpool: There are good things. The story itself is short, and has pretty good spelling and grammar. And, I’ll admit, at first, I was kind of curious to see where the story went. Also, the story doesn’t rely on you knowing a lot about Adventure Time to be scared. Granted, the scares are just your cliché lost episode stuff, but at least anyone who came across this would know that. However, the story still isn’t all that good. But that’s what we think. What do you guys think? Was the story good? Was the Riff good? Do you wish we’d be disturbed? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
