Love it but...

I personally love this show but I wouldn't let my daughter watch it. It can get disturbing, even for adults.

Entertaining Series!

I do not know why I like this series so much…probably because it is entertaining and somewhat funny! It is not as good as series like South Park, but it is still up there! The characters look like they could make up a Happy Meal if combined. This show’s mature content is not as bad as I thought it was going to be, so it is not as bad as CSM says it is. I have seen the first two seasons of this show, and it has been great, and I think it is okay for kids in their mid-teens. If you are a fan of quirky satirical humor, you will enjoy this series.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (33 ):
Kids say (95 ):

Some parents might wonder why this show is funny at all, since it really doesn't make any sense. But maybe the randomness is part of its charm. As a programming choice for kids, ATHF isn't the best. After all, the language is loose, the story lines nonsensical, and the Aqua Teens' next-door neighbor, Carl (also voiced by Willis), is probably one of the worst role models on TV. That said, Frylock serves as an oddly comforting father figure whose passion for science and technology sets a positive example for younger viewers. Meatwad, too, usually displays some sense of moral outrage, though it rarely shields him from Master Shake's schemes.
