Aqua Teen Hunger Force began as an episode of Space Ghost: Coast to Coast. It is part of the Adult Swim block on Cartoon Network.
The show is about three gigantic food items solving crimes. Or at least it used to be. In the first couple episodes, the trio of food items do solve crime, but later into the show's history, it became very random. The stories no longer have any constant plot, save the opening sequences that have replaced Dr. Weird.
Frylock plays the straight man: a box of french fries. He is a very serious and very smart character with a crazy ability to destroy things with his eyes. He spends most of his time in his room on his computer or defending Meatwad.
Master Shake is a crazy self-centered milkshake that gets all three characters into big trouble. He often has the funniest lines and does the funniest things. Shake has many hobbies, but mostly spends his time picking on Meatwad.
Meatwad is the third inhabitant of the house. He is shorter than the other two characters and is very dim. He does not have a (functioning) brain and spends a lot of time with his best friends: an apple, a paper tube and a box.
Carl lives next door to the Aqua Teens. He puts up with all of their non-sense with amazing patience. He has a pool in the backyard of his house and spends a lot of time getting the Aqua Teens out of it. He works out of his home and pays for lots of sex.
The Mooninites live on the moon and come to visit Earth and specifically the Aqua Teens periodically. Their logic is very flawed, but they basically know how things work. Their counterparts, the Plutonians, also visit the Aqua Teens often, though their logic is even more flawed. The Mooninites and Plutonians interact in the opening of the newer shows in place of Dr. Weird.
