In the Asian Pacific, Adventure Time is censored on multiple TV networks, such as Cartoon Network Asia Pacific and TV5.

Cartoon Network Southeast AsiaEdit

These edits are similar to but distinct from the edits found on CN Australia (which can be found here). These edits are also found on Adventure Time airings on CN India, CN Pakistan, CN Taiwan, CN Japan and CN Korea, with some differences.

Season 1Edit

Slumber Party PanicEdit

  • The zombie climbing up onto Princess Bubblegum and saying "Gimme some sugar baby!" is cut. Because of this when Princess Bubblegum is talking to Finn it is zoomed onto their faces.
  • The entire scene of Stancy exploding is cut.
  • Finn saying to Tree Trunks "Princess! Get those hot buns in here girl!" is cut.

Trouble in Lumpy SpaceEdit

  • "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..."
  • During the scene when Melissa's car drives off, the license plate "SXY-LMPS" is censored to be blank.
  • The sentence was changed from, "This orb is the antidote, brah." to "This orb is the antidote.", because "brah" sounds like the homophone "bra."

Prisoners of LoveEdit

  • Finn and Jake arguing about the context that "hot" is used in was cut.
  • "Physcho path!" is cut.

Tree TrunksEdit

The Enchiridion!Edit

  • When Finn kicked the ogre in the groin, the show zoomed into him, in order to not show emphasis on the groin.
  • 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 possibly say "kicking ability."

The JigglerEdit

  • Finn mentioning that he swallowed a small computer is cut.
  • 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.
    • This was done despite the fact that the creators of Adventure Time revealed the supposed nude woman was just wearing a faulty bikini, and it was only pure coincidence that the watercolor was damaged.

Ricardio the Heart GuyEdit

  • 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.
  • The word "patoot" was cut as well.
  • Ricardio revealing his plans about ripping out Princess Bubblegum's heart and making out with it was cut.

My Two Favorite PeopleEdit

  • Lady Rainicorn only says "Come on my darling" to Jake, instead of the full line, "Come on my darling, wrap your legs around me." when she first wears the translator.

Memories of Boom Boom MountainEdit

  • The guy hitting the other guy over the head with a cup at the beginning of the episode was cut.
  • "No, it's raunchy and maddening! Oh, all those men and their disgusting, fantastic bodies!" was changed only to "No!" because kids might find that context confusing. Although however when Memories of Boom Boom Mountain first aired it featured the whole line uncensored but in reruns it is censored.

Evicted!Edit

  • The scene where Marceline appears in the window and scares Finn was cut to after she taps on the window, Finn squints and screams.
  • In the song when the singer says "You should've just fought that sexy vampire lady", "sexy" is removed.

The Witch's GardenEdit

  • "Which one of you mortals wants to mate with all this?" by Gary was cut.
  • All scenes with Jake manipulating his chest while in the man-baby body were cut.

What is Life?Edit

  • The captions in the book for different objects were cut out for unknown reasons.
  • "And I know just the dumbhole who can give us some." was changed to the sentence "And I know who can give us some."
  • The words "private particles" were cut, as it was feared to be a reference to the Ice King's crotch.
    • Also, saying "You can mate with robot princesses!" was cut.

When Wedding Bells ThawEdit

  • In the wedding scene, the sentence, "Y'know, even though the Ice King is a wad, I'm still happy for him." was edited to "I'm still happy for him."
    • "And to think I was happy for that son of a toot!" was cut.
  • When the episode first aired, the entire scene with the swan eating the other swan is cut. Though because of this, the rest of the episode doesn't make any sense therefore in reruns the scene is uncensored.

Freak CityEdit

  • The two-headed monster saying "Our crotch! Our evil crotch!" was cut to simply say "Ow!".

HenchmanEdit

  • The scene that would appear to be Marceline biting the red bow tie man in the neck was edited, so that only Finn saying "Noooo!" in the next scene could be seen.
    • Marceline asking Finn if he was thinking the white bow tie "sorta" looked like a bra was cut as well.
  • Marceline's Fisherman Song only included "You look so cute, sitting in your boat..." instead of the other lyrics.
  • Finn saying that he was going to murder the Dimple Plant Monster was cut.
    • The short scene when Finn cut the Dimple Plant's arm was cut as well.
  • The line "I saved my bro from a scum-sucking vampire!" was removed entirely.

DungeonEdit

  • The scene where the demon cat is telling Finn that he will munch on his eyeballs, unzip his skin and wear him 'like a little coat' and do other torturing things was cut out.
  • The Key Song was modified, removing "I want to have your baby."
  • The Guardian Angel telling Finn that she will cook him and eat his flesh was cut.

The DukeEdit

  • "I should have asked if these were like, her eggs or something." was cut.
  • "You son of a bleep-blob!" was cut.

DonnyEdit

  • Donny shoving the chicken into the mailbox in the beginning scene, then the close-up of him squeezing the eggs out of it was cut.
  • "Maybe you'd wanna hang out with a couple of rascals like me and Jake." was changed to "Maybe you'd wanna hang out with me and Jake." This is only done in Australia.

Rainy Day DaydreamEdit

  • "Dang, girl. If you weren't a figment of my imagination, I'd want to have your baby." was cut.

What Have You Done?Edit

  • The quote by the Ice King, "I think I heard the word 'virile' in there." was cut out.

  • A Fuzzy Friend saying "Who the fluff are you?" has been cut.
