The galaxy's favorite fraternity brothers return! After 20 years, AquaDonk gives us a look into Hell Week-- Upsilon Phi Omicron's hazing ritual.

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.    • Dave on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DaveWillis2 • Dave on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/davewillisshaketable/   References: • Watch AquaDonk Side Pieces Free: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50zjN9sP6vw&list=PLQl8zBB7bPvJAB_ak87ztVoPiKUxZr47x • Watch YPF Shorts Free: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLQl8zBB7bPvIAlBlIflQ8TuP23NSIUN1W • Superlambanana: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superlambanana • Dave's Book Monster Christmas: https://books.apple.com/us/book/monster-christmas/id488121303   ★ Support The Show + Get Extra Episodes • Patreon: patreon.com/dancingisforbidden   ★ Amazon Affiliate Links - Support The Podcast At No Extra Cost! • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm 4K: https://amzn.to/3Svy2ea • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm BluRay: https://amzn.to/3dLcKKS • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm Digital: https://amzn.to/3t8cqtv • Baffler Meal 20 Disc DVD Box Set: https://amzn.to/3fmznWf   Timestamps: [00:00:00] - Intro [00:01:34] - Plantasm [00:18:02] - AquaDonk Side Pieces [00:27:20] - Writing Partners [00:32:57] - Episode Questions [00:50:29] - Dave's Other Endeavors [00:57:39] - Fan Questions [01:09:39] - Dave's Favorite Things [01:16:02] - Outro   Contacts:  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

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.   References: • ATHF:CMFFT JP Dub + Commentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7a309-9XpFg • How to Score Big Making Money Writing for Television: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFgJ8sY8PuM • ALL "The Cloning" Music: https://www.youtube.com/user/VideoFavorer/search?query=the%20cloning   ★ Support The Show + Get Extra Episodes • Patreon: patreon.com/dancingisforbidden   ★ Amazon Affiliate Links - Support The Podcast At No Extra Cost! • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm 4K: https://amzn.to/3Svy2ea • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm BluRay: https://amzn.to/3dLcKKS • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm Digital: https://amzn.to/3t8cqtv • Baffler Meal 20 Disc DVD Box Set: https://amzn.to/3fmznWf   Contacts:  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

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.    • Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKMhrJ2ZCUQ • Aqua Teen Hunger Force: The (very unofficial) Game: https://indreams.me/dream/mtTpPXiBGXJ • Buy Dreams: https://store.playstation.com/en-us/product/UP9000-CUSA08010_00-DREAMS0000000000?nonce=obZWUzuYFtZZupRD3ajn • 2D Meatwad Clip: https://imgur.com/a/pkpVNaT   • Kirksplosion on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Kirksplosion • Kirksplosion on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/kirksplosion1/   ★ Support The Show + Get Extra Episodes • Patreon: patreon.com/dancingisforbidden   ★ Amazon Affiliate Links - Support The Podcast At No Extra Cost! • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm 4K: https://amzn.to/3Svy2ea • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm BluRay: https://amzn.to/3dLcKKS • Baffler Meal 20 Disc DVD Box Set: https://amzn.to/3fmznWf   Contacts:  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

Have you ever wanted to play a game AS the Mooninites? Big mistake, buster. Samuel of the Cosmos (Nick Gibbons) gets to play such a game, and it sucks ass. We dive into the fourth AquaDonk Side Piece and talk about video game let downs, alternate options for how this short could have played out, and this short's relation to Plantasm.   • Moon Master 9: Beware the Gorgotron: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEyWevgrt94 • Final Deployment 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKjmDPGJI-4 • ThundaClap!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwU_7VxbDkg   ★ Support The Show + Get Extra Episodes • Patreon: patreon.com/dancingisforbidden   ★ Amazon Affiliate Links - Support The Podcast At No Extra Cost! • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm 4K: https://amzn.to/3Svy2ea • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm BluRay: https://amzn.to/3dLcKKS • Baffler Meal 20 Disc DVD Box Set: https://amzn.to/3fmznWf   Contacts:  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

Nick Gibbons (ATHF, YPF, As Seen On Adult Swim) is fun to talk to. How fun, you stupidly ask? Well, I only intended to chat with him for 30 minutes as an addendum to my coverage of "Moon Master 9: Beware The Gorgotron"-- but the conversation easily went on longer and became its own episode. Playing Samuel of the Cosmos, as well as editing on/producing the AduaDonk Side Piece, Nick has also spoofed streamers in his other work. We dive into his time on the short/AquaDonk Side Pieces, touch on Nick's other streamer spoofs (Final Deployment 4, ThundaClap!), and we also learn which game disc Nick wants to take a dump on.  Other topics discussed include editing ATHF from home with little kids, Nick's thoughts on Shake Like Me being removed from streaming, and the frustration/jealousy/rewards of being a content creator.   • Nick on Twitter: https://twitter.com/nickgibbons • Nick on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nicknickgibbons/   • Nick's Podcast "GOAT Dads": https://www.goatdadspod.com/ • Nick's YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/radioactivecrotch   • Moon Master 9: Beware the Gorgotron: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEyWevgrt94 • Final Deployment 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKjmDPGJI-4 • ThundaClap!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwU_7VxbDkg   • Late Night Lockdown Ep5 - Dave Willis & Puddles Pity Party: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xbsnzwu4mg • YPF - The Cartoon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngPZv7YOkEE&list=PLQl8zBB7bPvIAlBlIflQ8TuP23NSIUN1W   ★ Support The Show + Get Extra Episodes • Patreon: patreon.com/dancingisforbidden   ★ Amazon Affiliate Links - Support The Podcast At No Extra Cost! • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm 4K: https://amzn.to/3Svy2ea • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm BluRay: https://amzn.to/3dLcKKS • Baffler Meal 20 Disc DVD Box Set: https://amzn.to/3fmznWf   Contacts:  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

We go over all the (non plot-spoiler) highlights from the NYC Comic Con panel with Matt, Dave, Carey, and Dana. We also touch on John G's interview with the guys. Finally, we get into what the rest of the year might look like for Dancing Is Forbidden.    References: • New York Comic Con Plantasm Panel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKjwSbxzoJQ • [adult swim] central NYCC interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OhpB3OLghU   ★ Support The Show + Get Extra Episodes • Patreon: patreon.com/dancingisforbidden   ★ Amazon Affiliate Links - Support The Podcast At No Extra Cost! • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm 4K: https://amzn.to/3Svy2ea • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm BluRay: https://amzn.to/3dLcKKS • Baffler Meal 20 Disc DVD Box Set: https://amzn.to/3fmznWf   Contacts:  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

Want to know the quickest way to get your roommate to move out? Easy! Just emulate Mr David Lynch I'm On TV. In this episode of Aqua Teen, Frylock moves out, Shake keeps on doing whatever he wants, and Meatwad suffers. Plus, Carl falls out of an ambulance. We also see Frylock get rejected by Ned Hastings and Jay Wade Edwards. Beyond all of this, The demonstrates why Aqua Teen-- both the TV show and the group-- needs Frylock. Other topics discussed include pink eye, Dr Weird's possible Danzig fandom, and David Lynch's NYC Rat PSA.    References: • Podcast of Horror: https://anchor.fm/podcast-of-horror/episodes/Podcast-of-Horror-7-e1ov7t8? • Capt Beuford Turkatron/Billy Tweet: https://twitter.com/Beuford2Beuford/status/1571892918490742786 • ATHF x Twin Peaks Twitter: https://twitter.com/ATHFxTP • 2003 Forum Thread on The: https://animesuperhero.com/forums/threads/c-c-aqua-teen-hunger-force-the-the-12-21.3517671/   ★ Support The Show + Get Extra Episodes • Patreon: patreon.com/dancingisforbidden   ★ Amazon Affiliate Links - Support The Podcast At No Extra Cost! • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm 4K: https://amzn.to/3Svy2ea • Aqua Teen Forever Plantasm BluRay: https://amzn.to/3dLcKKS • Baffler Meal 20 Disc DVD Box Set: https://amzn.to/3fmznWf   Contacts:  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

Jay Wade Edwards is an Aqua Teen heavy-hitter. Not only was Jay a producer, editor, and voice actor on the show, but he is responsible for many of the in-universe TV shows the Aqua Teens watch, as well as for the special features on the DVDs. Jay still pops in to work on Aqua Teen, such as on the 2021 HBO Max promos, some of the 2022 AquaDonk Side Pieces, and he had a hand in the much anticipated 2022 film Plantasm. Beyond this, Jay has worked for Disney (Gravity Falls, Wander Over Yonder), Netflix (Kid Cosmic), and on other Adult Swim shows (Space Ghost Coast To Coast, Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell, Squidbillies, etc.)-- to name a few of his credits. Jay also edited the upcoming Matt Servitto directed film A Town Called Purgatory. When not working on content for pay, Jay spends his time making his own content. With a 2005 feature length film (Stomp! Shout! Scream!), numerous short films (some of which are shot masterfully on iPhone), and even some blogs under his belt, Jay and I had no shortage of things to discuss. Make yourself a tiki drink, put on your skunk ape suit, and enjoy this incredible discussion that I had no business having.    • Jay on Twitter: https://twitter.com/JayWadeEdwards • Jay on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jaywadeedwards/   • Jay's Website: https://www.jaywadeedwards.com/   • Jay's NEW Baseball-In-Pop-Culture Blog Tinker Taylor Soler Spiezio: https://tinkertaylorsolerspiezio.substack.com/ • Jay's 2018 iPhone Film "The Condemned": https://vimeo.com/251085833 • Buy SIGNED Stomp!

It's been six months, but we're bustin' out Jiggle Billy and getting our dance on. We weave thru all sorts of Aqua Teen topics-- from the Dressing answers Barry Mills gave, to the Baffler Meal Box Set, to music and video game mods inspired by ATHF. We wrap up with Ronnie blabberin' about TLC reality shows, the upcoming Smashing Pumpkins record, and how his favorite game is going away.
