Main plot[]

Master Shake wishes to become a super hero. After his promotional schemes fail, which includes day-glo wall posters and black on black stationery, Shake steals some radioactive waste and, after flinging a few earthworms into a puddle of it, exposes himself to it, hoping to acquiring super powers. Instead of becoming "The Drizzle", whose super power is to sprinkle down the "rain of vengeance" on criminals, Shake contracts radiation poisoning and begins slowly dissolving and emitting hot, green fumes. Burning up, he cools off next door in Carl's pool where Meatwad, with Frylock's help, crank calls him on his super hero cell. Next, Meatwad appears as the Drizzle's side kick, MR2 (Mr. Mister), complete with misting bottles (see accompanying illustration). Since Shake is still smoking from toxic waste, Meatwad recommends that he change his name from "The Drizzle" to "The Fume", which he eventually does. After setting several buildings on fire, Shake returns home, having now melted down to a puddle on the floor, still fuming green toxic material. The three worms erupt through the floor as giant, roaring monsters which Frylock explodes with his eyes. Finally, Frylock and Meatwad leave and decide to go stay with Carl due to the toxic fumes and waste having contaminated the entire house. Just before leaving, Meatwad shows Shake what he looks like in a mirror, leaving Shake screaming in horror.


  1. The three mutated worms are killed by Frylock's eye lasers.
  2. Shake presumably melts completely and dies from exposing himself to radioactive waste.
