Aqua Teen Hunger Force is the epic tale of Frylock, Master Shake and Meatwad, three human-sized food products looking for acceptance, friendship and yes, even love, in the wilds of New Jersey. The rest of the time, they do things like try to figure out ways to make money or hang out in their neighbor Carl’s above-ground swimming pool, and stuff like that.
And uh, that’s cool. The show, which is currently in its sixth year, consistently ranks as one of the most popular television series on Adult Swim, which is the #1 ranked programming block in its time period on basic cable with men 18-24. And if anyone knows quality TV, it’s those guys.
The Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Volume 5 DVD release is the latest title in an enormously successful home entertainment franchise which has sold more than 2.3 million units to date. Other licensing successes for the brand include apparel, accessories, CDs and a hit theatrical film, Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For Theaters, which played theatrically on 800+ screens across the US.
Additionally, video game partner, Midway recently released the most mind-numbingly-exciting, action-adventure combat golf, cart racing game ever, Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro Am¸ for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system. It gives fans an opportunity to experience the Aqua Teen universe in a whole new way – with a 9 iron!
