The second season of the animated television series, Aqua Teen Hunger Force originally aired in the United States on Cartoon Network's late night programming block, Adult Swim. Season two started on May 25, 2003 with "Super Birthday Snake" and ended with "The Last One" on December 31, 2003, with a total of twenty four episodes. This season continues to focus on the surreal adventures and antics of three anthropomorphic fast food items: Master Shake, Frylock, and Meatwad, who live next door to Carl Brutananadilewski in a suburban neighborhood in New Jersey.
With twenty four episodes, season two is the longest season of the series so far. Episodes in season two were written and directed by Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro, and have either a TV-14 or a TV-PG parental rating. Almost every episode in this season features a special guest appearance, including the season finale "The Last One" which features the return several guests from the first two seasons, who have reprised their roles. This season has been made available on DVD, and other forms of home media.
It is Meatwad's birthday and he wants a rabbit, but Master Shake buys him a snake instead.
Master Shake wishes to become a super hero.
Meatwad finds a pair of tickets to the Super Bowl in a bag of "Enchiladitos", a Doritos-like snack, but he has nobody to take with him to the game. Master Shake wastes no time trying to get the tickets by any means possible, so Frylock keeps the tickets safe.
Frylock develops a spherical supercomputer/game console that he calls the OoGhiJ MIQtxxXA (Klingon for "superior galactic intelligence"), which is accidentally sent back in time. It ends up in the hands of a caveman, Oog, who gains super-intelligence and longevity with the help of the computer, then takes out a patent on it.
Shake travels to Guatemala for cheap plastic surgery because he can't afford to have it done in the United States. Meatwad plays mind-games on Shake and convinces him to get more surgery done. After getting some more surgery, Meatwad wants Carl to take Shake to Carl's friend Terry for surgery and a 10% finder's fee. Shake gets the surgery, which includes a concave ass region and second mini-face, but decides it looks horrible and has the surgery reversed. While Shake is recuperating, Meatwad tells him that he is still fat and suggest that if he ever eats anything that he should vomit it out but Frylock responds "Meatwad, no!"
The Aqua Teens discover Travis, a spore that uses his "tongue" to penetrate Master Shake's skull and use his body to communicate. He has come to Earth to find a good job with a 401(k). Shake is not aware of what is happening. Travis speaks only Japanese, leading Frylock to attempt to teach him English. Travis learns from a self-help tape Meatwad gets from Carl, which only teaches him about how to speak to women. Frylock gives him and Meatwad time outs for using bad language and being rude, which Travis picked up on the tape. Frylock makes a device to translate Travis's thoughts into speech out of a colander. This allows him to apply for a job, though with little success.
Meatwad listens continuously to "4 Da Shorteez" by Sir Loin and deprives Master Shake and Frylock of every scrap of food in the house. Sir Loin turns out to be MC Pee Pants in disguise, who wants the food for a complex fly-collecting scheme. Frylock sends him into a slaughterhouse, telling him that it's a bank. Meatwad converts to Satanism & communicates with Satan.
Master Shake failed to pay the bills (instead flushing them down the toilet because he thinks they're too expensive), and the Aqua Teens lose the use of their utilities including their cable, electricity, phone and water.
Master Shake is teaching Meatwad how to cross the road (without looking both ways), until Frylock comes to bring Meatwad in for chocolate milk. But as Meatwad holds Frylock's fry, he has a vision telling him not to drink the chocolate milk. They soon find that the milk has indeed expired (it's been in the fridge for 18 months).
Master Shake, Frylock, and Meatwad participate in a trivia game at a local bar. Their only opponent, the short yet large-headed Wayne 'The Brain' McClane, wins, perhaps due to Meatwad and Shake's putting down 'Backstreet Boys' for most of the answers.
The Plutonians, aboard their spaceship, have successfully traveled "eons" through use of their Stargate-type device called the Fargate (Oglethorpe insists theirs is different, as he does not want to get sued).
The episode opens with Carl in hiding from Frylock, who is looking for him for a favor. After Frylock somehow gets into the house, he shows Carl what he wants him to do - test out an environmentally friendly super toilet he has placed on Carl's front lawn. Frylock explains that the toilet uses a jet engine and highly compressed air to dispose of waste.
It's Labor Day, and the Aqua Teens are barbecuing in Carl's backyard.
It's Meatwad's birthday, and Master Shake can't stand "Happy Birthday To You", so he commissions a new heavy-metal song co-written by him, Zakk Wylde, and Geddy Lee.
It's Halloween night in South Jersey, and the Aqua Teens are gearing up for the holiday by dressing up...except Master Shake, of course.
Master Shake discovers an underground cavern where the Broodwich, a cursed sandwich, rests. Every bite sends him to a hellish place for a few seconds, and anyone who eats the whole thing is trapped there and sliced at by a short creature with an axe. Eventually, Shake removes the sun-dried tomatoes from the sandwich, nullifying the curse. The evil voice that inhabits the Broodwich somehow convinces Shake to get “free brain surgery” and messes with his brain, then tells him to eat the tomatoes, and since his brain isn’t working properly, he does. The episode ends with Shake in the other dimension and the short creature (Jerry) bringing back his axe aimed at Shake. The scene cuts out just before contact is made.
Master Shake destroys Carl's car in a demolition derby. Meatwad gets the car as a donation, and tries to get it fixed, but he goofs off with Shake as the cost to repair was too much for him.
The Wisdom Cube, a cube from outer space, comes to the Aqua Teens' yard. It claims to have all of the wisdom in the universe, but it does little to reinforce its claim. Shake quickly warms up to him, but soon gets annoyed by his antics. Frylock asks him to solve a paradox, but all the Wisdom Cube says is "Yuh-huh". When they try to go out to the pool, Meatwad rolls back to listen to the cube's outrageous stories. Shake and Frylock discuss if Meatwad is smart enough to get out of the conversations, and in the middle of their conversation, Shake exclaims "For the love of all that's holy, there's another one! " After a small conversation, the second cube apologizes and claims he's the "real" Wisdom Cube and the original cube is his cousin: The Dumbassahedratron. Frylock asks the real cube the paradox, but the cube leaves him with a flaming bag that contains "the answer". After some convincing by Shake and the two cubes, he puts the bag out,only to have his fry covered in dog crap. The real cube tries to convince him if he wants "the final final answer" he should put it in his mouth. The cubes fly up, only to be killed by a passing helicopter.
Carl, screening the Aqua Teen's calls, doesn't answer his phone when Master Shake calls to inform Carl about his not liking the pH levels in the pool, but using it.
Carl shows up at the Aqua Teen's door to reveal that his house is infested with termites. He mutters that he won't sign for any more packages with "Congo" written in blood. Meatwad hurries over to receive a termite of his own. Throughout all this, Carl seems to be level-headed, a trait that he does not usually portray. He reveals that he has gotten a wig, and it cost a substantial amount.
Meatwad rolls over to Carl's with a message, which he is unable to remember due to his limited intelligence, so he roots around in his meat looking for the note he wrote as a reminder, pulling out his dolls Squirelly and a decapitated Jiggle Billy in the process. Eventually he finds the right note, which is a Thanksgiving invitation.
After Master Shake nearly destroys the house by leaving garbage everywhere (especially in Frylock's room, whose entrance he has bricked closed), burning styofoam, stockpiling chicken carcasses, and planting land mines in the hallway, Frylock becomes disgusted and moves to a condominium. Frylock throws a housewarming party, but none of the people he invites attend. Out of desperation, he invites the Mooninites, who show up only long enough to trash his place. Meanwhile, Shake, Meatwad, and even Carl go blind from conjunctivitis (their eyelids get so puffy, they can't see). Frylock stops by to see how everyone is doing, and upon seeing how they can not take care of themselves, he tries to help. However, he is angered by Shake's egotism, and he abandons them once again. Soon, the house burns down.
Meatwad is watching TV, and Master Shake wants him to change the channel, shooting a flaming arrow through the TV when Meatwad refuses. After they discover that there aren't any more TVs around in the house, they then discover why there were in the first place; Frylock has been cloning them using his cloner, and he's tired of it.
The Mooninites have gathered a bunch of their villain friends for one final push towards eliminating the Aqua Teens. However, they do not succeed, and much of their group is eliminated from the meeting. Only the Rabbot, the Mooninites, Mothmonsterman, Happy Time Harry, the Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future, and Major Shake get to South Jersey. They plan to shove "The Screw of Damnation" into the Hunger Force's heads. When the Mooninites were asked how they would get it in there, the Mooninites planned (They planned on having the others do it) on giving the Hunger Force a Post-It note saying "Stay Still." Early on the episode, they decide to make a cool group name. The brownies suggest "Click-Click-Click-Click..." and they finally settle on the Rabbot's idea, "Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday..." Meanwhile, the Plutonians, who were not invited because they were "teh s uck", have formed their own group consisting of them and a headless Jiggle Billy.
