Mayhem of the Mooninites was the fourth official episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force.


A pixellated purple ship lands in the street in front of Carl and the Aqua Teens' houses. Two short, square-shaped, pixellated aliens exit the ship and knock on Carl's door. They identify themselves as Ignignokt and Err, Mooninites from the inner core of the Moon and members of a race hundreds of years advanced from the people of the Earth. Carl slams the door in their face and the Mooninites decide to go next door to the Aqua Teens' house, where a sign on the lawn says there is a room for rent.

In their house, Master Shake explains to Meatwad that he is renting out Meatwad's room in order to make money. Shake answers the door and the Mooninites enter. As references, they spin in place and glow. Shake gives them the room. Shakes asks for a deposit, and Ignignokt offers Meatwad's jambox. Shake accepts.

Meatwad complains to the Mooninites about Shake, and they show him how to shoot the bird and smoke cigarettes. Later, after swimming in Carl's pool, they attempt to dry a wet towel over Frylock's computer. Frylock is unhappy to learn that Shake has rented them Meatwad's room. Frylock suspiciously questions the Mooninites and he is not impressed. When Meatwad rolls out of his room smoking a cigarette and asking for alcohol, Frylock is even more incensed. Shake breaks out an electric guitar and says that the Mooninites gave it to him.

Meatwad goes with the Mooninites to the mall, where Ignignokt and Err spit in Meatwad's face until he steals a rack of DVDs while the Mooninites steal televisions and stereo equipment. Frylock must retrieve Meatwad from mall security, while the Mooninites make it back safely and mention that they have gouged expletives into Carl's car. Carl is angry.

On the way back to their house, Meatwad shows Frylock his tough new clown tattoo. In Carl's pool, Shake and the Mooninites see who can hold their breath underwater the longest. Carl comes outside and complains about the vandalism to his car, and Ignignokt takes out 'Mr. Laser', a pixellated pistol-like gun. He fires a shot at Carl, but it moves extremely slowly. Carl easily moves out of the way and dodges it, but it bounces off his house and hits him in the back, causing him to disappear.

Frylock hovers to the pool, surprising Master Shake. They all go back into the Aqua Teens' house, and while everyone watches a movie on the television about 'Vegetable Man', Frylock tells the Mooninites he wants them to move out. When everyone ignores him, Frylock destroys the television with energy balls from his eyes. The Mooninites are initially impressed by how fast the balls move, but then pretend that the balls were actually primitive.

Frylock and the Mooninites takes their dispute outside, where Frylock uses his fries to plaster their flat two-dimensional bodies against the road. Meatwad rolls outside and shoves Frylock off of them, saying that the Mooninites are his friends. When Err extinguishes a cigarette in Meatwad's eye, Meatwad realizes they may not be his friends after all.

Ignignokt then utters the words 'Mooninites unite', and the smaller Err joins into an Err-shaped slot in the top of Ignignokt, forming the 'Quad Laser', wherein each of their arms holds a pixellated pistol-like gun. After stating that no one can defeat it, the Mooninites fire, shooting an even larger, even slower bullet than before. In response, Frylock shoots them with his energy balls, and the Mooninites quickly flee 'this primitive rock' in their ship.

Back on their ship, the Mooninites raise their middle fingers at the shrinking Earth. At Carl's pool, Shake says he will keep all of the Mooninites' stolen merchandise, because he deserves it. Having landed in a crater on the Moon, the Mooninites find Carl and threaten a 'Moon spanking'.
