Dumber Dolls is the thirteenth episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force.


Meatwad is playing with his dolls Vanessa and Dewey on the lawn when Master Shake suddenly pushes a lawnmower over them, shredding them to pieces, then attempts to do the same to Meatwad. Frylock takes Meatwad to the mall to buy a new doll. Meatwad wants Jiggle Billy, with the musket and the night vision goggles, but Frylock thinks he's too expensive so they purchase Happy Time Harry instead, a balding, drug-addicted action figure wearing nothing but shorts and red dancing shoes.

Back at home, Happy Time Harry threatens Meatwad with the knife attachment at the end of his right arm. Meatwad asks him if he likes dancing, to which Harry replies, "Not now, not ever." Harry reveals he doesn't actually dance because of a back injury and shows Meatwad his 'action bills', then lies down to take a nap. Meatwad tells Frylock that Harry is depressed, and Frylock writes out a check for $1,000,000 in 'fun money' on a Post-It. Harry tells Meatwad that what he needs is pills, to make the phone calls stop, so Frylock writes a Post-It prescription for 'jolly sunshine happiness.' Meatwad refuses to take it to Harry, and Frylock confronts Harry and discovers that he has drunk all of the Aqua Teens' root beer and triple sec (although he did not get to the tequila Frylock was going to use for margaritas, and he wasn't happy about hearing that). Periodically, Harry spontaneously vomits on the floor and/or passes out. Master Shake comes into Meatwad's room to torture him, but Happy Time Harry and Meatwad tell Shake to just 'do' (kill) Happy Time Harry. Outside, Shake threatens to kill Harry with a blowtorch, but Harry is so gung-ho about getting killed that Shake becomes unnerved and backs off.

Displeased with Happy Time Harry's attitude, Frylock purchases Jiggle Billy after all, but even his belly jiggling can't cheer up Meatwad and Harry. Outside the house, Meatwad, Jiggle Billy, and Happy Time Harry play, but Happy Time brings Jiggle Billy to such an emotional low that Jiggle Billy blows his own head off with his musket, though he survives. Frylock threatens to kill Happy Time, but Shake instead says they will make Happy Time immortal ('Highlander-style') as a suitable torture for the suicidal doll, by tossing him off a cliff.

The Aqua Teens stand atop a cliff, and after a short argument about whether or not this scenario was even in Highlander at all, Shake tosses Happy Time somewhere far below. Shake then jumps off the cliff, thinking he's immortal, but his straw catches on a branch and he decides he isn't. Some weeks later, Shake comes out of traction, rides up to Frylock and Meatwad in a wheelchair, and is then struck by lightning when he lofts a magical 'Highlander sword' skyward.
