    I finally get how brilliant this show is. The three characters represent the 3 major archetypes of modern American society.

    "Frylock" represents the ivory-tower, powerful-yet-overly-passive, liberal elitist do-gooder, who clings to the naive belief that the others can eventually become as enlightened as him.

    "Master Shake" represents the utterly narcissistic, irresponsible, short-sighted, bossy, self-destructive, anti-liberal whacko, who always takes advantage of Frylock's tolerant, patient nature.

    "Meatwad" represents everyone else -- the fickle, almost child-like John Q. Public, whose allegiance shifts whenever he sees something shiny. He is easily manipulated by the other two.

    This can also be viewed in Freudian terms. Frylock is the Superego, Shake is the Id, and Meatwad is the Ego.

    Brilliant!

    Spot on analysis. Though I have to admit I find this show to be lame.

    Such an ingeniously written cartoon, yet the majority of people who watch it fit the Meatball profile. icon_lol.gif

    I don't like when cartoons get all political, with messages and what morals

    I yearn for the day when the catapult backfires, or the anvil falls on someone icon_confused.gif

    But they are NOT political. The interpretation I posted is just that, my interpretation. Nothing like that is said in the show at all. The show is about stupid aliens, disgusting neighbors and random explosions. You'd like it! icon_smile.gif

    I'm just speculating, with tongue in cheek, about the hidden subtext. icon_cool.gif
