"Hypno-Germ" is the twelfth episode of the third season of Aqua Teen Hunger Force and the 54th episode overall. It originally aired on October 17, 2004.


Shake contracts Hypno-Germs from a gas station toilet, and is forced into doing a number of insane things. Frylock attempts to cure Shake by injecting him with Mexican Jumping Beans to combat the Germs, and what follows is a beautiful theatrical spectacular fun for the whole family.

The Hypno-Germs' only interest is mind control... and creating outlandish off-Broadway plays, after drinking on the weekends.
