The London Underground is a metro system in the United Kingdom that serves Greater London and the home counties of Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire. Its first section opened in 1863, making it the oldest underground metro system in the world – although in fact 55% of the current network is above ground, as it runs on the surface in outlying suburbs; the system comprises eleven lines – Bakerloo, Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, Piccadilly, Waterloo & City – serving 270 stations. It is operated by Transport for London. Most of the system is north of the River Thames, with six London boroughs in the south of the city not served by the Underground; the London Borough of Hackney, to the north, has two stations on its border. Some stations at the north-eastern end of the Central line are in the Epping Forest district of Essex and some stations at the north-western end of the Metropolitan line are in the Three Rivers and Watford districts of Hertfordshire and the Chiltern district of Buckinghamshire.
There are two instances where two separate stations share the same name: there is one Edgware Road station on the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines and another Edgware Road on the Bakerloo line, there is one Hammersmith station on the District and Piccadilly lines and another Hammersmith station on the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines. Although the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines station at Paddington is on the other side of the main line station to the Bakerloo and District lines station, it is shown as a single station on the current Tube map, it has been shown as two separate stations at different times in the past. TfL plans to open two new stations by 2021 as a result of extensions to the Northern line. Listed for each of the 270 stations are the line serving it, local authority and the fare zone in which it is located, the date it and any earlier main line service opened, previous names and passenger usage statistics in millions per year. Transport for London is planning an extension to the Northern line that will add two new stations to the network, both in Wandsworth.

"Apple Thief" is the name of the eleventh episode of the third season of the American animated television series Adventure Time. The episode was written and storyboarded by Tom Herpich and Bert Youn, from a story by Mark Banker, Kent Osborne, Patrick McHale, series creator Pendleton Ward, it aired on Cartoon Network on August 1, 2011 and guest stars Ron Lynch as Mr. Pig; the series follows the adventures of Finn, a human boy, his best friend and adoptive brother Jake, a dog with magical powers to change shape and grow and shrink at will. In this episode, the apples of Tree Trunks are stolen and Jake dive into the slums of the Candy Kingdom to find the thief. Finn and Jake arrive at the house of Tree Trunk to discover, they resolve to help her track down the thieves, bring them to justice, return her stolen fruit. Finn and Jake go to the candy tavern, after convincing the bartender that they are rogues, are given the location of a gang who trade apples; however and Jake soon learn that "apples" is street-slang for "diamonds", which this gang is trading.
The gang catches Finn and Jake, the two are nearly eaten by a reluctant pig that the criminals use to dispose of their enemies, but they manage to escape with Mr. Pig in tow. Back at Tree Trunks's house, Mr. Pig claims. Aftering opening up a closet, dozens of apples spill out, causing Tree Trunks to think that she is the thief. Finn, soon deduces that a family of magpiles stole all her apples and inadvertently stored them in the closet. "Apple Thief" was written and storyboarded by Tom Herpich and Bert Youn from a story developed by Mark Banker, Patrick McHale, Kent Osborne, series creator Pendleton Ward. During the production of "Apple Thief", Youn was living in South Korea undergoing mandatory army training with the South Korean military, whereas Herpich was living in Los Angeles. Unlike how Youn and Jesse Moynihan communicated with one another via the Internet when they worked on the previous third-season episode "Hitman", Youn and Herpich kept to themselves, as they each trusted the other to remain faithful to the episode's outline.
One of the lines dialogue in this episode, written by Herpich, features Tree Trunks referring to a character as looking like an army brat. Herpich did not understand what he meant when he wrote it, but he felt it was inherently funny and "trusted his gut". Ward, confused by the line, wanted to cut it. After a test screening of the line provided a large laugh, Ward agreed to include the line; the opening scene, which features Jake preparing a number of Korean dishes, was Ward's idea, inspired by Youn's love of cooking Korean cuisine. When the animation for the episode was sent back to California, all of the trees in Tree Trunks' orchard had apples on them; these in turn had to be painted out one by one by art director Nick Jennings to maintain consistency with the episode's storyline. Many of the gang members were brought back as gender-bent versions of themselves in the fifth-season episode "Bad Little Boy"; this was because Rebecca Sugar, co-storyboarder for said episode, felt that they fit in with the "rough" nature of Lumpy Space Prince's party.
The voice for the banana guards was inspired by a time Ward imitated John DiMaggio's voice for Jake. Tom Kenny overheard this attempt and, parroted it back at Ward. Ward, in turn, enjoyed Kenny's rendition. Ron Lynch voiced both Mr. Pig. After the completion of this episode, Ward wanted Mr. Pig to come back because he felt that both the character and Lynch's voice acting were funny; the design for Mr. Pig was settled upon late in the production of the episode. According to Youn, he and Herpich each drew a rudimentary pig design, since neither could agree with the other, due to their aforementioned communication issues.. "Apple Thief" first aired on Cartoon Network on October 3, 2011. The episode was viewed by 2 million viewers and scored a 0.3 Nielsen rating in the 18- to 49-year-old demographic.
