Episode 8

see my review posted on July 20. pretty sure I gave it a perfect score.

Episode 9

Last Dance For Napkin Lad
Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1 wrapped their 8th season on Sunday nite, with an episode more befitting of their action-packed intro. the Aqua Teens (or are they Aqua Units now?) are involved in some super-secret spy activities. it turns out Carl has been tracking them for the last 10 years. double-crosses abound, as you’re never quite sure who’s working with who. Napkin Lad, originally pitched as an Aqua Teen character in the Space Ghost episode “Baffler Meal” but later rejected, makes an appearance. Kill Dummy (from season 5 episode “Dummy Love”) appears in the background of the opening scene, as camera 04.

due to time constraints, and for purposes of not having to go back and jog my memory, I took the episode synopses of 1-9 from wikipedia.



Master Shake


main title

Season 9 has been confirmed, and two scripts have already been written. I thought Neil Hamburger was supposed to appear in season 8, but I don’t think it happened.
