Tree Trunks

The most adorable of all creatures in Adventure Time's adorable (and subversive) post-apocalypse world is a sweet little elephant with a Southern drawl called Tree Trunks. She scampers through many episodes, baking delicious apple pies for her friends in the Candy Kingdom. She is featured twice, where she searches -- with the help of Finn & Jake -- for the ultimate pie filling: the Crystal Gem Apple. Shockingly, at the end of part one, when she bites into the found apple, Tree Trunk explodes. In the second part, called Crystals Have Power, all things come together.
