My DVR describes Aqua Teen Hunger Force as "food items solve crimes." They are food items but I can’t recall them ever solving crimes. This is one of my favorite shows and, if you’re not familiar with it, is yet another example of the genius that is [adult swim].
The Hunger Force of the series consists of Master Shake is a self-centered milkshake. Frylock is a goateed box of french fries who plays the straight-man, has a jewel embedded in his back, and can shoot lasers from his eyes. Meatwad is a gullible glob of meat who can morph into the shape of a hot dog or an igloo.
Carl is their disgusting next door neighbor. He’s human…well, sub-human. Many of the episodes open with a short scene featuring Dr. Weird, a mad scientist, and his assistant, Steve.
The intergalactic characters include the Mooninites and the Plutonians.
The Mooninite characters include Ignignokt and Err, a couple of smart-assed two-dimentional pixelated game sprites lifted right out of any 80s arcade game. The Plutonians consist of Oglethorpe and Emory, a couple of spikey and stupid extraterrestrials. Oglethorrpe has an Austrian accent.
This is a typically great episode that includes most of the characters:
