Super-Sized Movie Script No Problem For ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force’ Creators

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Fans of the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim hit, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, should have their hunger quenched come Tuesday (Dec. 6).

That’s when the fourth DVD volume of the series will be released.

For those not in-the-know, the cartoon revolves around the antics of a talking pistachio milkshake, a box of french fries and a wad of meat, and while each episode is only 11 minutes, co- creators Matt Maiellaro and Dave Willis say they prefer it that way because keeping it short means they don’t have to think of a cliffhanger going into a commercial.

The pair says, “One of the characters usually explodes” and that’s the end.

But the creative team have stretched their comic abilities to write and produce a full-length feature film, due out next year.

The never-give-a-straight-answer team says it wasn’t hard. In their words, “The credits are 70-minutes long, so it feels like a full-length film.”

Meanwhile, the new season – all of three new episodes – debuts on Monday (Dec. 5).
