Things We Saw Today: Wow, I Didn’t Know There Are No Female Characters In Adventure Time!

…at least that’s what you’d think if you looked at McDonalds’ line of Adventure Time Happy Meal toys, which has only male characters and is marketed “for boys,” while the Paul Frank monkeys are “for girls.” Princess Bubblegum, Marceline, Lumpy Space Princess, etc. must have been figments of my imagination this whole time.

The Dark Secret of HBO GO [VIDEO]
