The Enchiridion! is episode number five in season one of Adventure Time.


In the Candy Kingdom, Finn, Jake, and the Candy People are having a party. When Cinnamon tries doing a flip, it causes the tower Princess Bubblegum is in to crack and fall while dancing, and luckily Finn rescues her. Princess Bubblegum then takes Finn through a secret entrance and shows him a magic globe that shows a book called The Enchiridion, which is destined for only a true hero of righteous power. Finn and Jake head to Mount Cragdor and meet the Key-per who gives Finn and Jake the first riddle. Finn finds it out by putting the Key-per in the lock, but warns Finn and Jake of the many trials that will come to them. As Finn and Jake travel, they hear shouts of help and find three Gnomes trapped in a lava pit. Finn and Jake save the gnomes, and in turn, the gnomes said that they will kill old women. The gnomes immediately begin killing old women, and this causes Finn to run away. Jake grabs the gnomes and shoves them back into the pit and tells Finn it was just an illusion. Suddenly, Jake gets eaten by a giant Ogre, who said that Jake is now dead. Finn uses the Ogre's dollar as a hang-glider to kick his stomach and make the ogre regurgitate Jake. Soon they arrive at the castle where the Enchiridion is held, and they meet the Dark Magician, who takes Finn into another world; his "brain world".He makes Finn fight an evil Heart Beast and then tells him to smash an Ant. But Finn refuses because the ant is "neutral" instead of evil and beats up the Magician, then accidentally beats up Key-per when he sees him in devil pajamas. Mannish runs in, and since he is not an enemy, he leads Finn and Jake to the Enchiridion. He gives the book to Finn when they, along with two old women have a small picnic. Finn begins to read a chapter called "How to Kiss a Princess" and he then goes off on another fun adventure.

Original Synopsis

The following is a synopsis of "The Enchiridion" storyboard v.1.0, an earlier version of the story which Frederator Studios posted on their website:

The story begins when Finn and Jake talking about their emotions of the candy party. Then they see Princess Bubblegum giving a speech about the candy party. Then she commands Finn and Jake to show the Candy People their dance moves. Everyone is in awe until Cinnamon tries to take the spotlight. He tells everyone that he's going to do a flip. His plan fails and he bumps into the tower in witch Princess Bubblegum is partying in. The tower cracks as the princess falls to the the ground. But Finn, just in time saved Princess Bubblegum from her death. Then she tells the Candy People that she and Finn are going to have a "secret conference." There, she tells Finn about a hero who has been guarding the Enchiridion for decades, someone named Manish Man. Manish protects the Enchiridion from anyone who will steal it and use it to take over the Land of Ooo without passing the trials. After that, Finn and Jake go to Mt. Cragdor, the place in witch the Enchiridion is held. They are greeted by Key-per, the keeper of the key to unlock the door blocking the path to the other trials. Then Finn stuffs Key-per into the lock, thus unlocking the door. Then Finn sees Jake being eaten by a giant ogre. In this case, Finn climbs up the ogre's leg and grabs a dollar from the ogre's wallet and uses it as a hang glider. Then Finn, in rage rips the ogre's dollar and throws it into a giant pit. Jake escapes the ogre and lands on top of a tree. Finn sees Jake and insists to go look for the Enchiridion. Then they see the Juice Goose and they ask the Juice Goose if he has seen a big, brown book. The goose is silent and then Finn and Jake hear screaming. They discover that some gnomes are stuck in a pit of lava. Finn helps the gnomes escape and then the gnomes demand Finn and Jake to give them all their gold. Jake grabs the gnomes and throws them back into the lava. Then they hear screaming coming from inside a cave. They see a giant bat with a gnome stuck in her ear. Finn throws the gnome on to the ground and kills it. Then the bat let Finn and Jake ride on her to go find the Enchiridion. Then they see a creature dancing happily inside the cave. The creature demands Finn and Jake to dance with her but instead they just ignore the creature and go search for the Enchiridion. Finally they land and see a dark prince. The prince wants Finn to join his side but instead Finn kills the prince instantly with one kick of his foot. Then they are greeted by the Juice Goose and Manish Man, who gives the Enchiridion to Finn. They return to the Candy Kingdom party, and Manish starts dancing with the candy people. Princess Bubblegum kisses Finn, then he runs off to fight a ghost in a nearby belfry.
