The Aqua Teen Hunger Force is back for their third season. Meet fast food heroes Master Shake, Meatwad, and Frylock. Who would have thought that such a lame premise could be so funny? With Meatwad's innocent stupidity, Frylock's dry wit, and Shake's caustic contempt, the jokes just keep rolling in. Completing the circle is next-door neighbor Carl, a disgusting, uneducated, sloppy fat, hairy, Jersey-speaking guy who wears a sleeveless tank top, sweats, and flip-flops.
New monsters in season three are Skeeter and D.P., the evil Broodwich (a sandwich), Turkatron, The Wisdom Cube, a floating mechanical clown head, and an onion-spider named Willie Nelson.
DISC ONE: 1) Frat Aliens - Frat-boy aliens Skeeter and D.P. (who's dad owns a dealership) are attracted by the security grid Carl put up around his pool, and wind out passing out on the ATHF's lawn. (Best line: "Dude, she's like a moped, fun to ride until your friends see you.") 2) Total Recarl - Carl's body is destroyed in Frylock's air toilet so Frylock looks for ways to rebuild him. 3) Kidney Car - Shake wrecks Carl's car and Meatwad gets it from the organ charity instead of a kidney. 4) Revenge Of The Trees - Shake deep fries a cow and dumps the oil in the woods, so the trees get angry and take him to wood court. 5) The Cloning - Frylock clones the TV too many times. Matter breaks down over time. 6) Broodwich - Shake falls through the yard digging for gold and finds a bunch of skulls and the 'Broodwich', a haunted sandwich. The argument in the netherworld is hilarious, about how their wives hate their hobbies. Turns out its just the sun-dried tomatoes that are haunted, which no one will eat. 7) The Dressing - Turkatron, the robot turkey from the year 9595, shows up for Thanksgiving to save the ancestor of Gobblox. 8) The [blank] - Frylock moves out because Shake is so filthy. Meatwad, Carl, and Shake get swollen, pus filled eyes from playing with raw chicken and burning Styrofoam. 9) The Cloning - The Wisdom Cube shows up on the ATHF's lawn. He has all the wisdom in the world, but only wants to play practical jokes.
DISC TWO: (Note: I found the Disc Two titles misleading, they look like they are only commentaries. There *are* episodes on this disc, and they are some of the very best!) 1) The Last One - Ignignot and Err, the Mooninites, gather all the beasties together from all the past ATHF episodes to discuss getting rid of our fast food heroes. There's Happy Time Harry, the Brownie Monsters, The Wisdom Cube, D.P. and Skeeter, Rabbot, the Master Shake Clone, Oog the Caveman, Rolulox, Travis the Super Spore, Randy The Astonishing, Mothmonsterman, Drippy the mould, the Cybernetic Ghost Of Christmas Past, and The Plutonians. The plot is to kill the ATHF with the Screw Of Damnation (which Ignignot found behind the Armoire Of Despair). 2) The Clowning - Carl gets a wig, but the hair possesses a strain of galactic DNA from the Clownacillus organism. He turns into a clown, and so does Meatwad when the hair touches him. 3) Spirit Journey Formation Anniversary - Shake hires Zack Wylde and Geddy Lee to create a new birthday song called Spirit Journey Formation Anniversary. I costs him 1.4 million to produce the song, and makes Zack angry. 4) The Shaving - (My favorite episode of all!) It's Halloween, and the ATHF discover there is an onion-spider monster named Willie Nelson living in their attic. Shake has to show Willie how to be scary, when all Willie wants to do is hang out and drink juice. But wait till you see the juice! -- Extras include deleted scenes, commentaries, making-of segments, and script pages.
I completely cracked up at the Wisdom Cube's prank phone calls, the gathering of bad guys in The Last One, the clown head, and especially Willie Nelson. Season Three picks up the beat on this zany cartoon, making up for a slightly flat Season Two. If you like Family Guy, Futurama, South Park, or Invader Zim, them you should get a big kick out of ATHF (though they still should lose the annoying theme music). Enjoy!

Product Description First of all, they're not teens. Secondly, there's not water involved. The whole Hunger Force thing? That's probably misleading, too. In short, if you have to ask what "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" is about, it is probably not a show for you. The rest of us will go on thrilling to the adventures of Frylock, Meatwad and Master Shake as they, you know... hang out.
