# Total Title Original air date Prod. code 1 56 "Dirtfoot" December 4, 2005 401 2 57 "Boost Mobile" December 11, 2005 402
In this episode, Frylock becomes angry when he sees that the Aqua Teens have an electric bill for $2600. He finds out that Shake caused the high fee by charging an anthropomorphic oversized cell phone that he got from Boost Mobile in exchange for advertising the company, which he does whenever the camera zooms in on him.
He gets a call from his friend Josh, who he alleges served in the army with him "a thousand years ago." Josh is presented as a live action photograph. As the Episode progresses, Shake reveals that Josh threatened to castrate him if he lost the phone, which annoys Frylock with its chirping. Shake kills Jeffy with his mind, and Meatwad forgets that he ever existed, which means that Meatwad may be outgrowing his imaginary friends. Frylock asks Meatwad what he wants to do, and he replies that he wants to find out how cows are milked. Shake tells Frylock that milking a cow isn't very urban, and he tells Frylock that he sounds "black."
Shake and the phone want to come, and Frylock takes them all three thousand miles below the Earth's surface, where the phone explodes. When Meatwad asks Frylock where the farm is, Frylock replies that a cow would melt under these conditions, and then that he already took him to the farm.
The Aqua Teens return to find two phones in place of the one Frylock killed. Frylock brings them outside, where they fall into a hole that also leads underground, and Meatwad seals it with a boulder. The land line rings, and Shake's afraid to answer it, but Meatwad answers, and it's Josh, who again threatens to castrate Shake.When Shake hangs up, he criticizes advertising Boost Mobile, and many phones appear using "molecular transporters" and "downloadable switchblades". They swarm Shake and proceed to castrate and/or kill him. A can of AXE body spray asks Frylock if he is "the milkshake guy," and Meatwad tells him that he's in the house, "getting his ass whupped." Meatwad asks the can if he is angry, and the can replies "No, I'm good. I'm in the Credits," which he is, appearing in every shot and as the astronaut.

December 18, 2005 403
In this episode, Shake and Meatwad show some scenes from Untitled Master Shake Project. Shake claims that the movie has no plot, and that viewers were disgusted when they saw it at the Mall Of America.
The clips revolve around the Insane-O-Flex Exercise Machine & its Motherboard. First, Carl shows off his "hypno-rims," which are, as Frylock points out, designed to spin at the frequency of the female brain wave, allowing Carl to rape anyone he wants. The Mooninites steal them from him so they can mock the Plutonians & the Ghost, the latter of whom seem to be working together. Later, the Mooninites hypnotize Carl with his own rims, telling him to pull down his pants, to stick a broom up his ass, and to steal the Motherboard. Carl sticks the broom through his whole body to the point where it bulges at the top of his head.
He also disturbs bees, causing them to swarm around him. He shows up at the Aqua Teens' house, wanting to use the Insane-O-Flex. Frylock tells him "How about taking that broom out of your ass first," to which Carl tells him that he likes the broom there. Frylock struggles to put the Motherboard into the Insane-O-Flex, but it won't fit, as it's a completely different font. Carl pretends to help him but steals the Motherboard instead.
Carl brings the Motherboard to the Mooninites, Plutonians, and Ghost, who are now working together. He tells them that it don't fit, and the Ghost goes directly in front of the camera, yelling "IMPOSSIBLE!" Meatwad shows his video, "Meatwad's Disco Safari Party Explosion,” which Shake blows up during the credits.Part 2 of this episode was in the same 30Min time Slot as Part 1. On the Volume 5 DVD, it's presented as a different episode. Carl comes to where Shake's showing his movie, with the broom still up his ass. Shake shows the rest of his movie: The Aqua Teens go to Carls house & find the Mooninites, Plutonians, & Ghost there. Carl tells Frylock that they used the "hypno-rims" to force him to rape himself with the broom, so Frylock uses the rims on them & forces them to give him the Motherboard. The Aqua Teens and Carl go to the Aqua Teens house, where Carl has recovered. He tells them that he mentally lost at least 2 days. Meatwad pulls the broom out of his ass quickly. After the movie ends, Carl is confused as to why the broom's still in his ass when he saw that Meatwad pulled it out. Shake dodges the question completely, and Carl walks away. He returns with a shotgun, without the broom in his ass, implying that he removed it himself this time. Meatwad shows the rest of his movie while Carl kills Shake in the background.
4 59 "Dickesode" October 22, 2006 404
Carl and the Aqua Teens walk out of a restaurant called "Wong Burger.” They hear about a new promotion, "Rip-n-Win,” where you rip the bottom off of your cups and get a prize. While Shake and Meatwad both get a coupon for Wasabi Fries, Carl reads from his "Tonight, You will get your dick ripped off.”
Later, the gang watches a TV commercial, with a quick disclaimer say some customers may get their dicks ripped off, which, since the disclaimer was fast, Meatwad acts out with two puppets. Facing the "prize" of genital mutilation, Carl hides in the Aqua Teens' house. Eventually, a couple of Chinese-looking large grains of rice with necklaces made of penises come to the ATHF's house, and they tell them Carl isn't there. Unsure, the two search the house, causing Carl to hide. Eventually, they give up, and report this to Mr. Wongburger, a life-sized anthropomorphic penis, who wants the penises to build a rocket ship to go back to his home planet.
Later on, Frylock performs plastic surgery on Carl to prevent him from getting his dick ripped off. Unfortunately, Frylock accidentally removed Carl's penis in the process. Throwing it in the garbage can, the two of Mr. Wongburger's men steal it and drive off.
However, the Aqua Teens sneak over to Mr. Wongburger's laboratory and confront him, but he explains that he wants to go back to his home world. They try stopping him, to no avail. In the end, the spaceship fails to launch, and Carl's penis is saved (albeit Frylock added a third testicle), and then shake digs in the trash and eats a "hotdog between 2 soggy walnuts.”
Guest appearance: Tommy Blacha (credited as Dick Blacha), Brendon Small (credited as Dick Small in the original airing, credited as Donald Cock in later airings), and Andy Merrill (credited as "Dick Merrill")Notes: For the end credits, everyone's first name is replaced with "dick”. In later airing, Brendon Small's credit was changed to "Donald Cock”. Dr. Wongburger makes his first appearance in this episode. This episode has a censored and uncensored version, both appear on DVD. This is the first episode of ATHF to be rated TV-MA.
5 60 "Handbanana" October 29, 2006 405
Frylock genetically engineers a dog for Meatwad using the "Make Your Own Dog 1.0" software, Carl's pool, and Master Shake's hand DNA. Meatwad names the dog "Handbanana.” Handbanana can speak so that his words are heard only by Carl, who is immediately unnerved by Handbanana's clearly menacing but initially-mysterious threat, "Tonight. You." Since Handbanana's speech cannot be heard by Frylock, Master Shake, or Meatwad—to them, Handbanana plays the guileless, capering pup—Carl appears either hallucinatory or simply deranged for the majority of the episode. Handbanana carries out his threats and brutally rapes Carl whenever they are alone, several times during the show.
Carl creates his own genetically engineered dog. He names it "The Enforcer”, though it prefers the name "Spaghetti”. He orders Spaghetti to rape Handbanana, but Spaghetti does not find himself attracted to Handbanana and instead brutally gang rapes Carl along with Handbanana. It turns out later in the episode that the software "Make Your own Dog 1.0" is illegal in most nations and has adverse side-effects, such as the dog forming a mental link with members of the owner's family (in this case, it is Carl, which is why only he can hear Handbanana's threats) .The episode ends with Master Shake and Frylock looking out the window and watching Spaghetti and Handbanana rape Carl. Frylock goes to lock the doors and leaves Master Shake alone. Master Shake then begins to move up and down giving the illusion that he is masturbating. Frylock's voice can be heard saying "No one wants to see that Shake go to your room." To which Master Shake replies "I don't have a room."
6 61 "Party All the Time" November 5, 2006 406
Master Shake attempts to learn electric guitar from a video tutorial, but is easily outdone by Meatwad, who plays a metal riff flawlessly. Meatwad points out that Shake's small hands make it hard for him to play, so Shake deliberately agitates a beehive in order to swell his hands.
Meanwhile, Frylock is working on creating a time machine, but Shake and Meatwad seem more concerned about a protrusion on his face. Frylock sees a doctor, thinking it to just be a simple skin irritation, but after testing, the doctor reveals that Frylock has cancer. As the episode goes on, Frylock appears more and more sick and has fewer and fewer fries. Shake, Meatwad and Carl try to cheer him up by throwing him a party, with Andrew W.K. performing, but Frylock just wants to rest.
The three are very concerned, and Shake comes up with an idea involving the time machine. He proceeds to destroy it and burn it, hoping the fumes will "smoke the cancer out," but burns down the house. Frylock tells them he cannot be out in the sun, so he goes to live with Carl temporarily, who is concerned about whether he can get his disease or not. Shake straps himself to a rocket, hoping to blow up the sun for Frylock, but the rocket explodes, killing him.
Later, Frylock returns to the doctor for further test results, and he discovers the latest tests were negative. The doctor, however, claims that aliens have landed and that they must band together to stop them, just as they arrive and start destroying the office. This all turns out to be a dream of Frylock's, and he awakes at the doctor's, who tells him the tests were negative, and he should be fine.Guest appearance: Eugene Mirman as Dr. Eugene Mirman.
7 62 "Global Grilling" November 12, 2006 408
As the show begins, Master Shake is spitting mucus into a kiddie pool, so that Meatwad can make a sculpture out of it, which he affectionately names "Mucus Man." Frylock yells at them, but rather than trying to get them to stop their slimy activity, he convinces the pair they need to heat up the mucus on a grill in order to be able to mold it correctly. He tries to set them up with a harmless "environmentally friendly" grill made of wood, but Master Shake instead buys The Char-Nobyl 6000, an illegally imported barbecue grill with a nuclear core made of radioactive waste from Chernobyl. Shake forgets to turn off the grill, which sets clouds on fire, disintegrates the ozone layer, melts the polar ice caps, and floods New Jersey. Suddenly, "Mucus Man," who has been brought to life by the radioactivity, appears and asks who owns the grill. Frylock points the fry at Shake, who in turn blames Meatwad. Mucus Man thanks Meatwad for creating the perfect environment for him to survive -- "and take over your dumbass planet!"Twelve years later, the mucus creatures have enslaved the world. They constantly whip Frylock, Shake, and Carl into spitting up phlegm. Meatwad rules as their ruthless king, even having Carl "congested" (executed) by his "mucus minions." However, at this point, we are brought back to the beginning of the episode, as Frylock explains about the grill, and we realize that Shake actually just daydreamed the whole story. The show ends with Shake giving a speech, in which he implores the American people to stop global warming: "You must eat your boogers, America!"
8 63 "Grim Reaper Gutters" November 19, 2006 409
The show opens with Master Shake and Meatwad sitting around, reminiscing about past events. They eventually stray off topic into more extravagant tales, like how Hugh Hefner invited Shake to the Playboy mansion, concerned on how there were too few guys. Frylock reminds the two of how many times he's saved their lives, accompanied by a clip montage mostly of him doing just that from past episodes accompanied by Andrew W.K.'s song from Party All the Time. Shake tries to counter this by talking about how he picked out Frylock's computer for him, but fails to mention how he ran off to Mexico when the bill arrived. Meatwad adds his own story about his first pubic hair, which he found in his food at a restaurant, and has been collecting them ever since, and presents a shirt. He presents it to Frylock, who suggests that Carl may want it more. During the phone call, Frylock coaxes Carl over when he finds porn star Tera Patrick is inexplicably at their house. What they don't mention is the shadowy grim reaper-like figure out in front of their door holding a line of gutter. As Carl approaches the house, the reaper identifies himself as Dan from "Grim Reaper Gutters" and tries to sell him a gutter plan, and tells him the company slogan that they won't leave without a sale. After Carl's insistent refusal, Dan touches him with his skeletal hand and he drops dead. This doesn't draw him from the Aqua Teen's house however, so Frylock is forced to buy something: the biggest plan they have. After Meatwad misunderstands a joke from Shake to Tera ("Show us a bridge in New York"), he takes out a gun and commits suicide. Rated TV-MA.Guest appearance: Tera Patrick.
9 64 "Moonajuana" November 26, 2006 410
As the episode begins, Frylock and Meatwad are playing checkers in the Aqua Teens' living room. Master Shake enters and announces he has bad glaucoma, and that his doctor said he needs to smoke marijuana to help him get better. The Mooninites arrive and say they grow marijuana on the Moon (called 'moonajuana'), at first to battle their own crippling illnesses, but now simply for recreation. Against Frylock's wishes, Shake and Meatwad go off with Ignignokt and Err to get stoned.
Rather than actually smoking cannabis, the Mooninites set fire to a pile of tires and wood in the driveway, then lower a clear chamber shaped just like Ignignokt over it, holding in all the fumes. Claiming they are already very high, the Mooninites stay outside and watch as the typically clueless Shake and Meatwad stay inside the hood and get "high," act silly, and eventually pass out. This part of the plan accomplished, they go to burgle the Aqua Teens' house, but are thwarted by Frylock. They then try their luck with Carl, asking if he would like to get high, but he says that he'd only do it if someone gave it to him. The Mooninites claim Frylock has drugs, and while Carl is distracted, break into his house. However, they are not interested in stealing Carl's possessions, which mainly consist of New York Giants memorabilia and pornography, and thus decide to burn his house to the ground so no one else can have it.
Carl, fondly remembering his high school days of "getting lit and listening to Styx,” joins Shake and Meatwad under the hood, while the Mooninites continue to try to trick Frylock. Frylock grows tired and asks why they are always bothering the Aqua Teens, considering there are so many other people on planet Earth. The Mooninites claim they were never taught that there were so many people, as they didn't have fathers growing up. Err gives a speech about how his parents left him and how he just steals to get attention. Hearing this, Frylock suggests that if they want attention, they should go to Los Angeles and try out to be movie stars. They take the advice and leave.Following this, the Aqua Teens are seen watching a television drama featuring Err as an extra, playing a gay prostitute. A man with questionable intent then approaches Err and several other gay prostitutes shortly before opening fire on the group with an uzi.
10 65 "Bart Oates" December 3, 2006 407
Meatwad and Master Shake call Frylock late at night, having been thrown in jail for a D.U.I. while driving Carl's car. The next morning, Carl discovers his car missing, finds a post-it note on the curb saying "Thanks for car, M.S.,” and tries to peddle shoddy Giants uniforms he commissioned to be made to Frylock. Later in Carl's room, Bart Oates appears, much to Carl's excitement. Carl recounts his stats and the many games of Oates' he watched, then reveals how he had hoped Oates would become injured after he transferred to the 49ers. Oates reveals that it was because of this that he had to get knee surgery and retire. Bart reappears several more times, giving Carl advice on how to be a better person and improve his life. He tutors him on being polite to Frylock, convinces him to bail Shake and Meatwad out of jail, and forces him to apologize to the grave of an elderly man he ran over, and to the band Chicago, who he swindled by selling counterfeit Chicago shirts (they weren't even good counterfeits, as they said "Chicano" instead of "Chicago"). Oates finally leads Carl to Linda Hamilton's house, and instructs Carl to kill her, so she won't give birth to John Connor, who will lead the resistance to the rise of the machines. Bart claims he's been sent by them, and reveals how when he got his surgery, he was implanted with computers. Bart rips apart his skin, revealing his insides, and Carl notes that most of his interior work is just old garbage, a discovery that dismays Bart Oates. Alarms go off at the house and Carl flees.
Sometime later, Frylock picks a BB pellet out of Carl's brain, wondering how it got there. In a flashback, we see that Bart Oates convinced Shake to shoot Carl from outside his house.Guest appearance: Bart Oates as himself.
11 66 "Antenna" December 10, 2006 412
After two aliens build a large antenna attached to Carl's house, Carl and the Aqua Teens are enticed into watching the show the aliens broadcast - a show wherein the aliens do nothing but move the same boxes back and forth - despite their swelling heads and constant nosebleeds.Guest appearances: Mike Judge and Will Forte as The Nutty Bunch, Erik & Larry.
12 67 "Ezekial" December 17, 2006 411
A small milkshake, looking just like Master Shake, arrives at the Aqua Teen's house, calling Shake "Daddy." Shake is very resistant to him, claiming there is no proof that he can be his son. Frylock, too, doubts he could be Shake's son, since Shake has no genitalia. Shake berates the small milkshake, who runs off crying then threatens to take a bus to Reno. Frylock and Meatwad, however, like the little shake and decide to let him stay with them. Meatwad names him "Jesus Ezekial Jesus."
They play in Carl's pool, where Shake tries to drown Ezekial by dropping a cinder block on him. Shake claims he did it since they can't afford college for him, but Frylock says that nobody is going to college and that he will work security at the mall when he gets older. Shake demands that Ezekial be a professional basketball star when he grows up, so they all go to a court and play. During the game, Ezekial tries to make a far shot, but misses. They later begin playing a game of tennis, in which Shake plays badly and blames Ezekial. Shake leaves in a huff, and sits in Carl's car with the exhaust routed into it in an attempt to kill himself. Carl witnesses this and pulls him out, not wanting his car to be ruined or to waste costly gasoline.
Meatwad brings Shake in the house to witness Ezekial match wits with the Chess Dragon. Ezekial wins, and the dragon leaves angrily. Meatwad congratulates him, claiming no one's ever beaten the Chess Dragon. Shake says he's now proud to call Ezekial his son, but Frylock claims that's impossible, knowing he's never had sex. Frylock also says he's done a DNA test showing Ezekial is older than Shake is. Ezekial states that he is 4,000 years old. Shake does not believe "there can be two talking milkshakes.” The Chess Dragon then bursts through the roof and snatches Ezekial, who exclaims that he is going on an adventure. Frylock says "Well, there were (two talking milkshakes)."Guest appearance: Patton Oswalt as Ezekiel (credited as "Shecky Chucklestein").
13 68 "Carl Wash" December 22, 2006 413
Meatwad responds to an ad in the newspaper and gets a job at "Carl's Car Wash," standing out on the highway in front of it waving and dancing to attract business (but only gets cups full of coke thrown at him). The proprietors of the business, a large floating human-like brain named Carl and his son Carl Jr. (who talks in quick gibberish), feel their business is failing since Meatwad can only shape shift into a hot dog or an igloo. Meatwad gets some help from Frylock in trying some new shapes, but eventually gives up. He instead takes Master Shake's advice and tries unsuccessfully to antagonize their neighbor Carl into getting his car washed, by turning into a fist extending his middle finger then asking if he is a dumbass who's gonna get his ass whupped. Only when Shake completely covers Carl's car with dirt does he take it to the car wash. This a rare instance of Shake helping Meatwad without an ulterior motive or for personal gain (except perhaps the joy he gets from tormenting Carl).
At the car wash, Meatwad has him lie down on a gurney with an oxygen mask as they both watch his car go through the wash: first getting the first half brushed, then covered in "dumpster juice" (which is a combination of rain water and garbage, and is very acidic, and very harsh on the paint job), then cat urine, then getting smashed with hammers, then being repainted in a 'color of their choosing'. When Carl protests, gas pumps into the room, and Carl and Carl Jr. arrive and, after pointing out that he, his son, and Carl have the exact same name, demand his brain be removed (a demand which shocks Meatwad).
Later, Carl, with a giant hole in his head, kneels by his completely defiled car, mindlessly licking it. Shake condones this, offering him a knife to remove his jaw so he can eat the car. Frylock eventually discovers what has happened, and despite Meatwad's insistence that he may lose his job if they cause trouble, they all go to the car wash. The brains have Carl's brain propped up by the highway, and are upset that it is not responding to their orders. When Carl (the floating brain) explains his plan of taking people's brains to work at the car wash, Frylock dismisses it as "retarded." Before Frylock can do anything about it, the brains leave, saying they are closed, but before they go, inform them they will open at ten the next day.Notes: This episode was originally scheduled to air on January 7, 2007, but was aired early and without announcement on December 22, 2006 during the 3:30 a.m. time slot. It was played once more on January 21, before Adult Swim officially aired this episode on March 25, 2007. The earlier broadcasts included a rough audio track, whereas the later, "official" airing contained finished audio. Also, on the original version, parts of the screen were not shown, such as, when Meatwad is talking to the brains, in the finished version, Carl Jr. is entirely shown, however, in the rough version, part of Carl Jr. is not shown. Carl and Carl Jr. previously appeared on the Space Ghost Coast to Coast episode "Chambraigne".
