Banana Planet is the fourth episode of the 10th season of Aqua Teen Hunger Force.


Frylock and Meatwad discover a planet shaped like a banana. When the Aqua Teens realize the inhabitants are calling out for help by spelling out "SOS: in morse code, they blast off via rocket to help them, only for them to discover the planet is wholly inhabited by purple monkeys.

Why It Gets Eaten by Monkeys

  1. The episode (particularly the large middle chunk that takes place on Banana Planet) is primarily unfunny and boring, mainly relying on monkey and fecal humor that gets old really fast.
  2. Once the episode takes place on Banana Planet, the pacing gets really uneventful and the lack of jokes (beyond monkey and turd references) is noticeable.
  3. The monkeys make for some of the lamest villains in the entire series, whose shtick relies purely on laying turds and exhibiting repetitive, stereotypical monkey behavior.
    • Their only other attempt at "humor" is when they plan on "circumcising" the Aqua Teens, by ripping off Master Shake's thumb. At least they tried doing something a little different...

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The Aqua Teens are still likeable and funny characters, and keep the episode at least tolerable.
  2. The scene where the Aqua Teens' rocket blasts off from underneath Carl's pool, as well as Carl running around in a panic while set ablaze are absolutely hilarious.
