Status Lost

From 2012 to 2014, Warner Bros. released the first four seasons of Adventure Time on DVD and Blu-ray to the Region 1/North American market. A special bonus feature for these releases was the presence of commentaries for select episodes with the cast and crew of the show.

However, some commentaries on each season had to be censored, with chunks of dialogue being replaced with ukulele music or a vocal echo effect. Some of the censorship was for content reasons/to maintain a TV-PG rating on the discs, while other censorship was for legal reasons.

The most heavily censored commentary came from season 2, which received a large number of complaints from older fans of the show. In an attempt to tone down the amount of censorship required in seasons 3 and 4's commentary, the cast/crew developed a safe word ("orange juice") for when the subject matter got beyond what they were allowed to say.

All international DVDs which contained commentary tracks had the same censorship applied. Since season 4, there have been no commentaries on the home video releases for Adventure Time, but it is unknown if the uncensored commentaries for these seasons will ever be released.

What's the point of even recording a commentary if large chunks of it aren't going to be included?

This seems like a joke to me.

There's sort of a disagreement on the exact purpose of an audio commentary - some tend to prefer the sort of feeling that the cast and crew are rewatching something for the first time, and behaving spontaneously. Some of the appeal of this movement is that some see it as an easier way to 'get to know' the cast ad crew, enjoy their interactions and feel it can become more natural. It is usually the far more entertaining way of doing things.

The other school of thought is that a commentator should have notes or a script as they go along so that they can follow along with the relevant portions of the material to provide factual information. These commentaries tend to have less people and are, in many cases, a lot dryer, but are much more informative to buffs with serious interest in the material. Using notes and such beforehand obviously ensures that there is nothing 'adult' included.

A further difference is recordings of the former kind of commentary are often done casually, while the latter usually involves payment and being recorded professionally. FYI, most of the "Adventure Time" DVD commentaries (I've listened to all of S1 and a little of S2) were recorded by the cast and crew goofing off at series creator Pendleton Ward's house, rather than in-studio.

I own every US release dvd on adventure time, and I seen some of the commentary. I think it varies from dvd, if I remember right, though this is more of a forum comment, because it doesn't exactly change much. Interesting none the less

I also own many releases, since I watched the show until a couple years ago. One time I watched the commentary and it was ok. The only thing I remember was Rebecca Sugar mentioning the gross white stuff that covers old batteries. Nothing much.
