As season seven unfolds, major changes are in store for some of the inhabitants of Candy Kingdom. Princess Bubblegum is exiled to live on the shores of Lake Butterscotch, where she tries to grow a new kingdom made of vegetables. Marceline decides she no longer wants to be a vampire and asks Princess Bubblegum to help her get rid of her vampiric essence. Her quest to become mortal sets off a series of events that are captured in the eight-part “Stakes” story arc. Also included in the season seven release is “Bad Jubies,” the award-winning episode which brings the Adventure Time characters to life in stop-motion animation form.

The eight-part story arc, which aired in four parts, ranked as the #1 telecast of the day among boys 6-11 and 9-14. One of Cartoon Network’s most popular programs, Adventure Time originally premiered in 2007.
