I’ve been ride or die with Aqua Teen Hunger Force since the show debuted more than 20 years ago. When you combine the trio’s general incompetence with the most absurd enemies in the universe, that has often meant dying. Well, at least it has for Carl. This is why he’s probably the only person not excited by this news. Now, Adult Swim is bringing back some of the animated show’s best villains. They’ll return in the new Aqua Teen Hunger Force web series Aquadonk Side Pieces.
Aqua Teen Hunger Force “ can’t stop, won’t stop doin’ the thang.” The iconic animated series is now going to do its thang on the world wide web. Adult Swim has announced Aquadonk Side Pieces, a new series of digital one-shot shorts featuring classic characters from the original series. Starting today the ten-part Aquadonk Side Pieces will release a new episode every day on the network’s official YouTube channel. Each episode premieres at 12:00 p.m. ET, and you can watch the first episode right here.
In addition to the good(ish) guys, Meatwad, Frylock, Master Shake, and Carl, the shorts will mark the return of beloved baddies. That means new battles with The Mooninites, The Plutonians, MC Pee Pants, The Frat Aliens, Happy Time Harry, Handbanana, and The Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past.
The series is the second of four digital shorts launching on Adult Swim’s YouTube channel. Alabama Jackson previously debuted on the site. Aquadonk Side Pieces is just the start of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force renaissance. Last year Adult Swim announced it was also producing a feature film for the series. The network is also developing movies for two other classic cartoons, Venture Bros. and Metalocaylpse.
As excited as I am for the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie, for the next ten days this web series is the only thing I care about. I really want to see how many times Carl dies.
