"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.


When Hypno-Germs invade Shake's brain, they force him to do a number of insane things. Frylock uses Mexican jumping-beans to combat the germs in Shakes head with a theatrical spectacular, until the beans kill all of them.

Their only interest is mind control... and creating outlandish off-Broadway plays, after drinking on the weekends.
