To celebrate Adventure Time Live, Cartoon Network and Doughnut Time have teamed up to deliver the ultimate breakfast treat; the Bacon Pancake Doughnut!

“It’s Always Adventure Time” doughnut is made from maple glaze in Jake’s signature yellow, topped with hand-made sprinkles in Finn’s iconic colours & caramelised bacon pancake!

“It’s Always Adventure Time” Doughnuts will be sold in all Doughnut Time stores across Australia for a limited time from Thursday March 9.

The iconic Bacon Pancake song first made its debut in the fourth season of Adventure Time, with Jake singing the song while frying bacon on the stove. The song spawned a breakfast revolution, with Australian superstar Hugh Jackman lip-synching the song on Dubsmash and releasing it on his Instagram page. The episode has become the highest-rated show of the series to date, with over 3.5 million viewers tuning in when it aired.

John DiMaggio, the voice of Jake the Dog, will sing the song for fans at Adventure Time Live – an interactive, live audio-visual event featuring voice actors from the all-star cast of the hit Cartoon Network series. The fan experience will happen in Melbourne on March 10, Sydney on March 11 and Brisbane on March 12.

Also taking part in the three-city tour will be Jeremy Shada (the voice of Finn the Human), Olivia Olson (Marceline the Vampire) and Hynden Walch (Princess Bubblegum). Each event will feature a moderated discussion, live readings of classic scenes from the Emmy®-award winning series, audience Q&A with the cast as well as the screening of a never-before-seen episode of Adventure Time.

About Doughnut Time

How does one tiny hole-in-the-wall doughnut store in Brisbane become a household name less than a year after opening its window for the very first time? They say timing is everything...

Founded by enigmatic hospitality entrepreneur Damian Griffiths in 2015, Doughnut Time has rapidly become a real Australian success story, and a benchmark for how a simple concept can capture the imagination of the public. Despite now having more than 20 locations across Australia, our recipe for success stays the same: Locally-sourced ingredients used to make, glaze and fill our artisan product by hand, free of trans-fat and delivered to our stores daily to ensure the highest quality product.

The business continues to grow each month with a clear vision and strategy in place to bring the Doughnut Time brand to more Australians, as well as employing an ever-expanding team of over 400 hard-working staff. With a rotating menu that’s always expanding (to now include vegan creations), we’re committed to offering our customers an unforgettable experience you can hold in your hand.
