What would you do with a shrink (and also growth) ray? Would you increase food sizes to feed the poor? Would you use it to advance humanity's technological achievements? Or would you make your johnson bigger? If you chose the latter, I've got the episode for you. Meatwad thinks all chips are for eating, but he doesn't poop. Shake throws up on his own face and becomes a malevolent ruler. Frylock creates yet another amazing invention, just to destroy it. Carl gets a bigger johnson.... not like he needed it. Maybe. Other topics discussed include FRIENDS ripping off Aqua Teen, Video Ouija vs Insult Master, and when buying stuff online used to be a big deal.

If you could talk to the dead, what would you want to talk about? If your answer is "someone's sister's baby", then I've got the game for you-- VIDEO OUIJA! Meatwad's obsession with this game gives Shake an idea: to insert himself into the game, and ruin the experience for Meatwad. While he is successful in becoming a ghost and entering the Video Ouija, his plan didn't account for one thing: Meatwad having a short attention span and moving on to a new game. Frylock recruits BillyWitchDoctor.com to bring Shake back from the dead, but Billy is more interested in making the guys say funny thing. ARISE! Other topics discussed include Popeye on Adult Swim, Ouija boards being dumb, and Janet Jackson's 2004 Superball performance.

How many villains does it take to defeat the Aqua Teens? Unfortunately, this episode doesn't get to the bottom of this... but it DOES rock you like a hurricane! The Last One closes out ATHF's historic 2003 run on the highest note possible, featuring an assload of our favorite villains. From Episode 1's Rabbot to late Season 2's Bingo, this group of classic television villains are tricked by the Mooninites to attend the convention of a lifetime. Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday may not be a force to be reckoned with, but they sure are fun to watch. Other topics discussed include honeymoons in Belize, Todd Barry's tomato aversion, and killer nipples.

International cool guy Matt Maiellaro (Aqua Teen co-creator, co-writer, voice of Err/Markula/Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future) shreds the podcast with his amazing voice. We get into who Matt and Dave Willis initially wanted on Plantasm, the long-promised Death Fighter, Space Ghost showing up in the original Rabbot episode, and the exciting future of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Other topics discussed include Matt's time playing with blood on Hellraiser III, his upcoming film Pastacolypse, the power of Tubi, Metalocalypse, learning guitar on a crappy acoustic, and buying a $5,000 Mesa Boogie amp head and cabinet combo with your boss's credit card.

The incredible Adult Swim mashup you probably didn't know existed. On New Years Eve 2003, Adult Swim aired a "buttload" of bumps between all their new episodes that night. These bumps had the Brak family hosting a New Years Eve party, with the sexiest of Williams Street guests. We see Carl hit on Sealab 2021's Debbie, Meatwad throw up with Brak, Frylock meet an old invention, and Shake pee in a bag. This thing is criminally underrated, and I'm so glad we are able to give it the attention it deserves!

The always regal Dave Willis (Aqua Teen co-creator, co-writer, voice of Meatwad/Carl/Ignignokt) graces the podcast, answering all my burning questions. We dive into Plantasm inspirations, the inner-workings of AquaDonk Side Pieces, Dave's writing partners (Matt Maiellaro on ATHF / Jim Fortier on Squidbillies / Casper Kelly on Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell), and we even get Carl's thoughts on Foreigner's upcoming farewell tour. Other topics discussed include Dave's favorite Rush album, Dave's time on Celebrity Deathmatch, Tom Scharpling, and sheets of mold.

Money can tear people apart.... alongside defectively cloned television sets. These two evils almost cause the demise of the Aqua Teens, until they unite to face a greater evil: someone telling them what to do. In one of the most ambitious episodes of ATHF yet, we learn where new TVs keep spawning from, what Frylock does when nobody is policing him, and what Meatwad's grandmother gave him before she died. We also learn about how this episode was written! Other topics discussed include Sonic Heroes, Mitch Hedberg, and the Lost Highway soundtrack.

How big of an Aqua Teen fan are you? Are you such a big fan that you learned how to 3D model, program games, write dialog, and compose music? If you said yes, then I'm 99% sure you are this week's guest, Kirksplosion. Kirk spent three years writing a digital love letter to Aqua Teen in the form of "Aqua Teen Hunger Force: The (very unofficial) Game." The best part of this is that the game absolutely rules. If you have Playstation 4/5 and Dreams, you can play it for FREE. If you don't have Dreams, it's totally worth the price to play this one game.
