Adventure Time is a Cartoon Network production which as with many Cartoon Network shows is being released in two different formats in Australia, being either full season collections or compilation discs of episodes. TrevorD previously reviewed a number of releases for Adventure Time. One of those is linked here and others are linked from that review. This review is of the most recent compilation disc, Jake The Dad. Trevor's review gives a good rundown on the nature of the show and its wacky characters. The compilation discs are focused on episodes whereas the season sets include more extras.
This disc contains sixteen selected episodes mostly from Seasons 4 and 5 of the show. The episodes included here are lots of fun and this disc will certainly suit someone looking for a collection of some episodes of this show which is now in its Fifth Season. The first episode is the one which the disc is named after focusing on the puppies of Jake and Lady Rainicorn, in which Jake learns how to be a dad and where to draw the line on protection versus letting the kids fend for themselves.
This disc is available in two editions, either on its own or with a Jake Hat.

The feature is presented in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio which is the original aspect ratio.
