    The latest episode, Little Brother, was storyboarded by Adam Muto and first timer Madeleine Flores.

    If you recognize Madeleine, particularly her Help Us Great Warrior stuff, you will understand why this episode was so heroic and fantastic.

    Because seriously. It was great.

    Yeah, I think they ran into some problems with including him in the cast so they had to do something to explain why he wouldn't be appearing, but the whole thing could've been handled a lot better.

    Re: It's Adventure Time!

    The voice actor asked for RBG to die because the Banana Guards being incompetent was- in his opinion- a funny running joke that he knows will keep going, and he didn't want RBG- as head of the Banana Guards- to be seen as incompetent by extension and thus have RBG's character tarnished in that way.

    But no yeah he was the best one-shot character so it was like, dang, guys. Dang.

    Personally I found amusement in how he was casually killed off screen with barely any fanfare, but maybe I'm just weird like that.

    It was pretty funny.

    But man RBG was the coolest though.

    At least this way he won't have a chance to get boring.

    It was actually really funny, but still a bit disappointing.

    The whole "didn't want to lose a gag or tarnish a cool character" thing makes sense. And still technically falls under my "had problems integrating him into the cast" speculation, since they couldn't think of a way to both keep RBG convincingly competent and the banana guards incompetent.

    A better solution would seem to me to be to simply make the regular bananna guards even more incompetant, make a point to depict them constantly misinterpreting his directions and reporting incorrect information. But I suppose lampshading things like that could potentially eat up episode time that could be better used.

    Yeah, I had no problem with the way they did it, that was hilarious, but doing this instead would have been much better.

    Another thing is that bothers me about Root Beer Guy dying (besides him being a really great character and his episode probably my favorite in all of season 5 part 2, not to mention exactly what i needed to not give up on AT by that point) it really pisses me off whenever Adventure Time goes and restores the status quo for the sake of maintaining the status quo. Jake has puppies! But no, wait, they grow up in one episode. Finn loses his arm! No wait, it grows back 4 or so episodes later. The Candy Kingdom has a new captain of the guard to whip up the guards into shape! No wait, let's kill him off really early into the next season so we can keep the banana guards stupid. I really would like it if AT would make a big change and not go back on it almost immediately. When cool new stuff happens (for instance, the arm thing) I go out of my way to tell other people: "see, this is why adventure time is a cool show! it's not afraid to change up its status quo and do interesting things!" but then i end up looking stupid when that gets undone so quickly. Granted, Root Beer Guy getting offed isn't anywhere near as big as that, but it really reflects on a grander and very annoying trend in Adventure Time.
