If your weird neighbors invited you to Thanksgiving dinner (in December), would you go? No? Well what if the food smells good, does that change your mind? It does? BIG MISTAKE, BUSTER! Because a giant metal turkey from the future (but not really) is gonna mess your day up. SUCKS TO SUCK! In this seasonal return of Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future (sort of?), the Teens are celebrating Thanksgiving, despite what was done to the Martians. We dive into why this episode is called "The Dressing," how it compares to the Season 1 episode, why Ben Prisk made Cybernetic Ghost gold in his illustrations, and the religious values of Frylock. Other topics discussed include Deus Ex: Invisible War, Christopher Columbus, welding, and Dave and Matt not being allowed to make eye contact with Seth Green.   References:  • ATHF Rabbot Rebuilt Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OP5uojMMzg • Broodwich Reanimated: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BY9JPIqkuQg • SpeedBeatz on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SpeedBeatz • Dancing Is Forbidden Welding and Fabrication Videos (@lordsquidinkton): https://www.instagram.com/lordsquidinkton/ • Dave Willis on Seth Green's Scrapped Episode: https://web.archive.org/web/20160304031231/http://news.wabe.org/post/aqua-teen-hunger-force-creators-talk-cancellation-weirdness • Ben Prisk on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/benpriskart/ • Joey "Meatwad Drinking Beer": https://twitter.com/Joey24128513/status/1564716028935946243 • 2003 Forum Thread on The Dressing: https://animesuperhero.com/forums/threads/c-c-aqua-teen-hunger-force-the-dressing-12-14.3512961/   Contacts:  Support the Show: patreon.com/dancingisforbidden Leave a voice message: speakpipe.com/dancingisforbidden Discord: https://discord.gg/NpjSXPECw6 Instagram: @AquaTeenPod Twitter: @AquaTeenPod Email: DancingIsForbiddenPod@gmail.com YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9yseLj27npIZlEnM8ooBaQ Listen on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCe5gFb5eAYH3nyF3DZ5jwhQ Website: dancingisforbidden.com Twitch: twitch.tv/ronnieneeley

Would you sacrifice your entire identity as a human being for a brief moment of beauty? Carl did, and he paid the ultimate price: he became a clown. In this episode of Aqua Teen, Meatwad's desire for a new termite pet destroys Carl's house and creates easy viewing for the gang to watch Carl get it on. Hayden Ward shows up in this episode voicing the first (English speaking) female character in the show-- however, Hayden has done MUCH MORE for Aqua Teen than this role. Without her the show wouldn't have been as successful as it was. We also touch on the hidden Clown lore of the ATHF world. Other topics discussed include the perspective of "I Want Candy", Britney Spears' face, Runescape 2, and the history of clowns.    References: • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnYHRG0x1N0 • Ned Hastings on the Thunder Talk Podcast: https://www.thundertalk.org/ • MC Chris "I Want Candy" Interview: https://www.dancingisforbidden.com/e/mcchris/ • [Adult Swim] commercials (December 7, 2003): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44ZSMXzKNI8 • 2003 Forum Thread on The Clowning: https://animesuperhero.com/forums/threads/c-c-aqua-teen-hunger-force-the-clowning-12-7.3507801/   Contacts:  Support the Show: patreon.com/dancingisforbidden Leave a voice message: speakpipe.com/dancingisforbidden Discord: https://discord.gg/NpjSXPECw6 Instagram: @AquaTeenPod Twitter: @AquaTeenPod Email: DancingIsForbiddenPod@gmail.com YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9yseLj27npIZlEnM8ooBaQ Listen on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCe5gFb5eAYH3nyF3DZ5jwhQ Website: dancingisforbidden.com Twitch: twitch.tv/ronnieneeley

Imagine buying a home security system so incredible that it causes aliens to crash land in front of your house. How would you feel? Shocked? Excited? Annoyed? If you choose the last option, you might be Carl. In this episode of Aqua Teen, Carl accidentally summons two incredibly annoying frat bros to Earth, where they inflict a short-lived reign of unwanted sexual advances, vomit, and family braggery. Frylock builds a rocketship, Meatwad defends his sexuality, and Shake watches The Jeffersons in this episode that kicks off the Volume 3 DVD. Ronnie also gets into some ideas ditched from the original script, where "My Dad Owns a Dealership" comes from, and how "Frat Aliens" compares to "The Cubing". Other topics discussed include MySpace's failed server migration, Patton Oswalt's career, and why we use "lbs" for pounds.

We've all met someone like the Wisdom Cube. A guy who just won't. shut. up. He jabbers on about the dumbest stuff you could never care about. Also, he's kind of a douche. Well, in this episode, we get to see the Aqua Teens deal with this paragon of vexation. Witnessing a barrage of "pranks", the Aqua Teens individually get sick of the Wisdom Cube, who turns out to not even be the Wisdom Cube. Jon Schnepp and Brian Posehn bring this "slice-of-life" episode to fruition, all while Carl applies for a restraining order. Other topics discussed include The Radio Dept., Mike Myers allegedly being a diva, and the mystery of Atlanta college band "The Mooninites".   References: • "The Mooninites" Music: https://archive.org/search.php?query=creator%3A%22The+Mooninites%22 • 2003 Forum Thread on The Cubing: https://animesuperhero.com/forums/threads/c-c-aqua-teen-hunger-force-the-cubing-11-23.3497211/ Contacts:  Support the Show: patreon.com/dancingisforbidden Leave a voice message: speakpipe.com/dancingisforbidden Discord: https://discord.gg/NpjSXPECw6 Instagram: @AquaTeenPod Twitter: @AquaTeenPod Email: DancingIsForbiddenPod@gmail.com YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9yseLj27npIZlEnM8ooBaQ Listen on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCe5gFb5eAYH3nyF3DZ5jwhQ Website: dancingisforbidden.com Twitch: twitch.tv/ronnieneeley

Who needs a kidney when you can have a new car? In this slice-of-life episode, the boys attempt to fix up The Hotwad, but it doesn't go to plan... mostly for Carl. One of the very last TV-PG episodes of Aqua Teen, Ronnie gushes about his all-time favorite ATHF episode. Other topics discussed include Will Ferrell maybe kind of almost being in the 2007 ATHF film, egregious auto repair bills, and the continuing mystery of Judith Dray.

Are you looking to make a quick buck? Can you rap? Are you especially skilled in not developing relationships with the elderly? Then MC P Pants University is for you! Back in his original spider form, MC Pee Pants is here to teach you the ways of the stealth reverse mortgage. Besides covering this, we go through some of the stock footage used in the episode, how the economics of the production lends to the episode, and discuss how this short turns the classic MC Pee Pants formula on its head.  References:  • Catch MC Chris on tour: https://mcchris.com/pages/shows • Old Man in Wheelchair: https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/senior-father-wheelchair-young-son-on-1012270453 • Bunny with Money: https://www.pond5.com/stock-footage/item/146024105-easter-bunny-holds-fan-dollar-under-rain-dollars-shows-thumb Contacts:  Support the Show: patreon.com/dancingisforbidden Leave a voice message: speakpipe.com/dancingisforbidden Discord: https://discord.gg/NpjSXPECw6 Instagram: @AquaTeenPod Twitter: @AquaTeenPod Email: DancingIsForbiddenPod@gmail.com YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9yseLj27npIZlEnM8ooBaQ Listen on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCe5gFb5eAYH3nyF3DZ5jwhQ Website: dancingisforbidden.com Twitch: twitch.tv/ronnieneeley

Imagine the best sandwich you've ever had. Like, ever. Now imagine if you ate it all, you'd die. Would you be able to resist? Master Shake wasn't. In this dread-filled episode, the William's Street crew pushes Aqua Teen to the limit-- to great success. Filled with collectibles, Don Hertzfeldt homages, disembodied voices (Isaac Hayes III), relationship quarrels (H. Jon Benjamin and Jon Glaser), Vogue magazine subscriptions, and the worst day of Meatwad's life, this episode has it all. Other topics discussed include A Perfect Circle, Call of Duty, Arrested Development, and using sundried tomatoes to kill someone.
