Pendleton Ward

Pendleton Ward is an American animator, screenwriter, producer, and voice actor who works for Cartoon Network Studios and Frederator Studios. Yes, this guy is the birth giver of the famous series, Adventure Time !!

In 2002–2003, he published a webcomic titled Bueno the Bear. He later took down the comics because he thought they were "terrible".

Ward continued to work on short animations for Frederator's Random! Cartoons, which aired on the Nicktoons Network. There he worked with several people who would later join him on the Adventure Time series.

His two shorts were The Bravest Warriors and the Adventure Time animated short. The Adventure Time short was made in 2006 and went on to become an internet phenomenon in 2007, with over a million views by November of that year. Ward initially pitched Adventure Time to Nickelodeon, but was rejected. It also took some time before Cartoon Network decided to pick it up

Nickelodeon, you had one job.

HOW CUTE IS FINN HAHA, I love how Ward actually sketched out every move of Finn in every angle possible, how the different angles project how fast or how slow Finn is moving.

Have you ever heard of the series Bravest Warriors? IF YOU HAVEN'T, HEAD DOWN TO YOUTUBE RIGHT NOW YOUNG MAN

Okay, yes, Bravest Warriors is also by the amazing Pendleton Ward himself. How I wished he is still making more shows. If you compare Adventure Time and Bravest Warriors, you can see how similiar the characters actually look like. Something about the eyes, the hands gosh THEY ARE SO CUTE


In 2012, Frederator Studios developed Bravest Warriors and turned it into a web series for the relaunch of Cartoon Hangover, however Ward has little involvement in the series
Sometime, during the 5th season of Adventure Time, Ward abruptly stepped down from running the show, explaining it was negatively affecting his "quality of life". In the October 2, 2014 edition of the Rolling Stone magazine, Ward stated "I quit because it was driving me nuts". However, he continued to work as one of the show's writers and storyboard artists until the end of the season six
Like what I said, I wished he was still making more cute and crazy shows but looks like he has his work cut out for him
