Do you like Bubbline, but don’t want to have to go through 200+ episodes of Adventure Time? Fear not!

Or perhaps you want to skip all the filler episodes and just get to the plot? Fear not!

I went by season and put them in chronological order as well as specified if it was simply Bubbline stuff or plot-related (very basic plot-related just so you know enough to get a general idea of what’s going on; these will be marked with an asterisk *) so you can choose if you want to see the plot ones too or focus solely on the ship. If you want solely the plot-related episodes (and I mean ones that are a little more than just basic plot, see this post—though I can pretty much guarantee the episodes listed in this Bubbline post are most likely listed in that one too).

Evicted! (Just Marceline)
