"Puhoy" is the sixteenth episode of the fifth season of the American animated television series Adventure Time. The episode was written and storyboarded by Tom Herpich and Steve Wolfhard, from a story by Patrick McHale, Kent Osborne, and Pendleton Ward. It originally aired on Cartoon Network on April 8, 2013. The episode guest stars Mandy Siegfriend as Roselinen, Jonathan Frakes as Adult Finn, and Wallace Shawn as Rasheeta. The series follows the adventures of Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada), a human boy, and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio), a dog with magical powers to change shape and grow and shrink at will. In this episode, Finn begins second-guessing his relationship with Flame Princess, so he builds a giant pillow fort. While navigating it, Finn seemingly falls asleep and dreams that he ends up in a pillow world where he marries a pillow woman named Roselinen (Siegfriend) and has two children with her. The episode was viewed by 2.75 million viewers and received a 0.6 rating among adults between the ages of 18 and 49. Oliver Sava of The A.V. Club wrote positively of the way the episode focused on character development, noting that the episode bore similarities to both The Wizard of Oz and Captain America. Similarly, Collin O'Boyle of Geek Smash compared the episode to the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. For his work on the episode's character designs, Andy Ristaino won an Emmy Award for "Outstanding Individual Achievement In Animation" at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards, making it the series' first Emmy win.
