Adventure Time is a surreal adventure animated show that focuses on the bizarre quests of best friends, Finn and Jake, in the land of Ooo. Finn is a twelve-year-old boy who has dreams of becoming a hero some day. He wears a self-proclaimed awesome hat but he has a thirst for adventures and helping others. Jake is a shape-shifting twenty eight year old dog that helps Finn on adventures.
Personality and character traits
According to Finn, "BMO does weird junk when no one is around;" which he proved in "Five Short Graybles" where BMO talked to a mirror reflection named Football and pretended to be a "little living boy." In "BMO Noire," BMO acts out a film noir fantasy complete with giving names, voices and dialogue to a number of animals, and one inanimate object, in the house. The way it interacts with its reflection in "Five Short Graybles," as well as the animals in "BMO Noire," is evidence that BMO may suffer from dissociative identity disorder, otherwise known as multiple personality disorder. This causes BMO to act like completely different people, and have them communicate with each other.
BMO claims to not have emotions, but this is not true. In "Donny" BMO says, "I am incapable of emotion, but you are making me chafed!" It got annoyed in "Too Young" when Jake used BMO as an ottoman. BMO acted independently in "Slow Love" when BMO refused to turn down its music after Jake tells it to. Though they are both robots, BMO refuses Neptr's request to hang out more in "BMO Noire" by saying, "No, Neptr, I am not like you." In "Davey" BMO cries while Finn shaves his head to disguise as Davey. In the "Little Did You Know" DVD set, BMO's profile states that "he" is a good listener. In "James Baxter the Horse", his screen shows him crying and happy when James Baxter enters the scene.
BMO is very protective of Finn and Jake. In "Incendium" BMO said, "If anyone tries to hurt Finn, I will kill them," and in "Guardians of Sunshine" BMO refused to let Finn and Jake enter the video game world saying, "No! It's a far too dangerous, incredible adventure for you! That's final!"
BMO acts to keep the harmony of friendship between Finn and Jake. In "Video Makers" it edits the film Finn and Jake make in a way to resolve their dispute over artistic direction, even composing a song. In "Card Wars" it refuses to "play such games with Jake," because Jake can't handle losing. When Finn asked for advice on Jake's attitude, BMO recommended that Finn play to lose.
BMO likes a number of games and even a few sports. BMO has been seen playing its video games by itself in "BMO Noire." BMO also has been seen skateboarding in "Card Wars" and once had to be picked up from soccer in the episode "In Your Footsteps."
BMO likes scrambled eggs, as shown in "Her Parents," and hot chocolate, as shown in "Video Makers" and "Holly Jolly Secrets Part II," In "Five More Short Grables," Beemo was teaching Football manners. Beemo drank the tea with his pinkie finger up but Football didn't. Beemo drank again and again and began to electrocute itself. This shows that even though Beemo can't drink things, it still does while pretending to be real. It has never been seen actually consuming food. It can cook, however, and made dinner for Finn and Jake in "Little Dude." BMO reveals in "The Creeps" that it enjoys taking nice pictures. BMO also likes to dance.
BMO is ticklish. This is shown when it giggles after Princess Bubblegum plays its circuits like a keyboard in "What Was Missing," when it reacts to being tickled by a feather in its sleep in "Guardians of Sunshine" and when it laughs and wriggles as its foot is being nibbled by a bear in "In Your Footsteps."
BMO's most prized possession is its controller, as it was stolen by the Door Lord in "What Was Missing."
