Adventure Time insists on emotional honesty — even in its bad guys, usually depicted as cardboard villains in kids’ cartoons.

[Lev] Grossman offers the shrill, socially maladapted Earl of Lemongrab as an example. An unlikable character, his story is movingly explored and raises questions nearly every kid has wondered about: Why do I seem weird to other people? Why do I seem weird to myself?
