Aqua Teen Hunger Force: "Kangarilla and the Magic Tarantula" Season 7, Episode 10 Review

"What the hell did I just watch?" That was my initial reaction to this episode when the credits started rolling. This was a very strange story, even by Aqua Teen standards. There's really no plot to speak of; it's more like a bunch of random story elements stitched together like a patchwork quilt. But, if you like your humor random and nonsensical, there's a lot to like here. If you don't fit in that fanclub, well, better luck next week.


The episode opened with Meatwad swimming, then drowning, and Frylock not really paying attention. I found this odd because Frylock is usually fairly protective of Meatwad, but this week he's addicted to a phone game, which absorbs his attention and Shake's. Then some mysterious, invisible forces haunt the house. The haunting starts out as fairly basic poltergeist fare, with blood on the walls, pots clanging, etc. But it's the ghost's voice that made me laugh. Shake calls our apparition a "gayst", since the wraith has a stereotypical but pretty fabulous lisp. At this point, I was thinking we'd have yet another fun story with the ATHF house's history or some monster in the basement, attic, septic tank, or whatever. But no, it's even weirder than that. The ghost's origin story involves an accidental nuclear test and a big sealed container, and a bunch of dead people as a result. It made little sense, which I suppose is part of the joke, but I didn't find it that amusing.
