AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE, the animated comedy about three human-sized food products that live together in a rental house in New Jersey, returned to ADULT SWIM on August 31, 2003 with a new season of peculiar adventures at 11:45 pm.
Master Shake (Dana Snyder), the self-appointed team leader, has a big mouth, a short attention span and no work ethic. Frylock (Carey Means), the only reasonable member of the group, is a box of french-fried potatoes with mystical powers. Meatwad (Dave Willis), a round mound of meat, completes the squad. At any given moment, Meatwad can take the shape of a hot dog or an igloo. Sometimes they solve crimes. More often, they bicker and hang out in their neighbor Carl's (also voiced by Willis) aboveground swimming pool.
