Adult Swim has dropped the first-look clip at the Aqua Teen Hunger Force spinoff series AquaDonk Side Pieces.
Aqua Teen Hunger Force, which ran for 11 seasons on Adult Swim from 2000 to 2015, followed the surreal adventures and antics of three anthropomorphic fast-food items: Master Shake, Frylock, and Meatwad, who live together as roommates and frequently interact with their human next-door neighbor, Carl Brutananadilewski.
AquaDonk Side Pieces is a continuation of the original series. But instead of focusing on the main characters, the spinoff will center on the later lives of the show’s various side characters and villains such as The Mooninites, The Plutonians, MC Pee Pants, The Frat Aliens, Happy Time Harry, Handbanana, and The Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past.
The minute-long video from AquaDonk Side Pieces opens with Powerpuff Mall security guards Carl and Master Shake taking a break from stealing change from the fountain to check out the Breakie B breakdancing robot. The clip then cuts to the Cybernetic Ghost who reveals that Breakie B is an assassin disguised as a breakdancing toy.
“He must be stopped or it will give birth to the quickening of the Dragonoids and three billion lives will vanish in an instant,” says the Cybernetic Ghost before wondering how he can get through the mall’s metal detector.
