The Show

  • Carl's car is in fact co-creator Matt Maiellaro's real car, with some embellishments added in by background artists for the show.
  • Meatwad shapeshifts into a set of stairs in this episode.
  • This is the first time we see the grill in Meatwad's room.
  • The scenes of the city and its subsequent streets (with the exception of the street in front of the Aqua Teens house) were actually shots borrowed from the Swat Kats: The Radical Squadron cartoon.
  • The opening scene of Dr. Weird's fortress is an old shot borrowed from a Johnny Quest episode.

  • Carl: (To Frylock) Do not point that fry thing at me.
  • Master Shake: It's cool man. I'm a detective. Clear the crime scene and let me think... meteors did it. That'll be twenty dollars.
  • Carl: What happened to my frickin' car?!
    Master Shake: Good morning, Carl. How's it goin'?
    Carl: Oh, yeah, good morning to you there, Mr. Food Monster. This is how it's going. Look at my freaking car. It is crushed to bejesus and back.
    Shake: Have you gotten any estimates?
  • Shake: (Imitating the sound of a siren) Wake up Meatwad.
    Meatwad: (Wakes up and turns on stereo and begins to dance.) Good mornin' Frylock, how are you doin'?
    Frylock: Good morning, Meatwad.
    Meatwad: This is a good beat, why aren't you dancin'?
    Shake: (Stomps on Meatwad's stereo until it's crushed) Dancing is forbidden. It is mystery time, we have a case to solve! Aqua Teen Hunger Force assemble!
