Rush 2112 reference in Cartoon Network's Adventure Time
2:17PM EST | comments (13) |

Reader Colton S noticed a brief Rush 2112 reference in a recent episode of Cartoon Network's Adventure Time (Season 5, Episode 49 - Bad Timing - aired 3/4/2014). Towards the beginning of the episode Princess Bubblegum unveils her new orb-shaped time travel machine, and explains how it works and how it is controlled by a pair of special gloves. The green pair of gloves display the time and, for one split second as she is adjusting the time, it reads 21:12. You can watch the episode online here and the reference occurs at about the 50-second mark, but if you blink you'll miss it so here's a screenshot.

#3 - I actually interpreted the "04" as a reference to their 4th album.

I think it's more of a "Caress of Steel" reference, based on the emerald green and amber colors, plus the diagonal shapes and the finger pointing suggest the Necromancer with his prism, and...

I have watched it a few times. It is imagination x 100000000.

Cool show. I like the one where he goes to outer space, and becomes "lumpy".

I get a kick out of the Ice King and Lemongrab. Our kids watch this show and I enjoy watching cartoons with them at the end of a work day. Stress relief.

Jake the dog and Finn the human are my heroes.

#5 By that logic, most every Rush 2112 reference in the past never happened.

Yes, I agree. This is a bit desperate trying to claim this as a Rush reference.

Anymore desperate and we'll be claiming words beginning with R are references too...

I think we're stretching this one a bit.
