Aqua Teen Hunger Force (also known as ATHF) is an American animated television series shown on Cartoon Network as part of its Adult Swim late-night programming block, as well as Teletoon in Canada. ATHF is one of the four original Williams Street series that premiered on December 30, 2000 before Adult Swim officially debuted. ATHF is the longest running original series on the network.
The show is about three anthropomorphic fast food items, along with their next-door neighbor, and their life together in New Jersey. The Aqua Teens were originally billed as a detective crime fighting unit, however the crime-solving aspect of the show was quickly abandoned. (In the third season, Frylock states: "We haven't 'detected' anything in three years, Shake!") There is little if any continuity between episodes. Almost all recurring cast members have died at least once, only to return alive and well in the next episode. The focus is instead on a pervasive form of postmodern, surreal and often morbid humor, where the focus is often on dialogue and the characters' interrelation, to such a point where plot is often abandoned to allow more time for personal interaction. Since its release, it has become a major cult hit.
Meatwad and Shake try to capture the Tooth Fairy. This is a sequel to the episode "Dickesode".
