In anticipation of the arrival of “Adventure Time” Season 3 on Blu-ray and DVD on Feb. 25, Zap2it is happy to present an exclusive clip from the Blu-ray special features. In the clip, series creator Pendleton Ward explains the motivations behind his choice of voice actors in the Cartoon Network series.

“Whenever I have them on at my mom’s house, usually the cartoon characters’ voices are shrill and cartoony and over-the-top,” Ward says. “She’ll hear that and it will be really grating on her. So I try to cast more natural-sounding voices so that she can listen to something in the other room and not know that it’s a cartoon and not know that it’s annoying to her.”

That’s reasoning Finn and Jake would approve of. “Adventure Time” airs Mondays at 7 p.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network.
