"Gee Whiz" is the fourth episode of the third season of Aqua Teen Hunger Force and the 46th episode overall. It originally aired August 22nd, 2004.


Spacecataz: The Mooninites knock on the Plutonians door then run away.

The episode begins with Meatwad harassing Frylock to try and make pizza appear out of the computer. Frylock is more interested in a news story concerning people seeing the image of a certain religious figure that he can't say the name of because of "Standards and Practices." He shows Meatwad a brief video on the subject, which becomes a running gag through the remainder of the episode, then raises his doubts as to the actuality of the image which is referred to as "Gee Whiz".
In the meantime, Meatwad rolls over to a billboard for a gun store that includes said image (which Frylock claims not to be able to see) and prays for pizza, offering money to make the prayer come true. Frylock catches him and takes him home. Master Shake, who has been hiding the whole time, tries to take Meatwad's money but has flaming arrows shoot at him.
Back at the Aqua Teens' home Meatwad learns he is pregnant, to the anger of Shake and the amazement of Frylock, who head over to the billboard where Shake tries to make Frylock see the image. Again, Frylock can't see it and Shake has flaming arrows shoot at him when he takes Gee Whiz's name in vain.
After a baby shower for Meatwad Frylock decides to try and make a sonogram of the baby, revealing the horrible truth—Meatwad's "pregnancy" is in fact a colony of spiders that have entered his body and grown. Meatwad's stomach explodes shortly thereafter and Frylock and Shake flee the house while it fills with spiders.
Once outside the two, as well as Carl, run into Ted Nugent. Nugent shoots Carl with a flaming arrow, warning him not to move, and tells Shake and Frylock that it was his image they had seen on the billboard. Carl's body explodes and a rainbow shoots out.

  • The original title of this episode was "Gee Whiz," however for three weeks it was listed as both "Nuge" and "The Nuge." The official title of the episode was changed back to "Gee Whiz" the night before it aired on Adult Swim.
  • The homeless man who thinks he is "Gee Whiz" is the same man who appears in the episode "Spirit Journey Formation Anniversary and later episodes.
  • When Carl is telling Meatwad to have his baby yank a Lamborghini out of mid-air, Meatwad says "I'm afraid that would be a vulgar display of his power", a nod to the Pantera album "A Vulgar Display of Power" or to a line from the film "The Exorcist".
  • Dave Willis's inspiration to "impregnate" Meatwad came from his wife's pregnancy during the production and writing of the episode.
  • The idea of people seeing Jesus on a billboard came from a 1991 billboard in Atlanta, Georgia of a forkful of spaghetti, which people believed to see the face of Jesus on.
  • Ted Nugent portrays a likeness of himself in this episode. They were recorded in a studio in Texas while Ted was there on a hunting trip. Nugent also suggested the badger loin cloth that his animated self wore.
  • The standards and practices video was derived from problems that Cartoon Network had with the first version of the episode, in particular the use of Jesus. George Lowe provided the voice of the video's host, which was animated twice when Lowe rejected the first version of his animated self for having a noticeable gap between his front teeth.
