What do you get when you let two underachieving teens loose in a Fast Food joint? Funny stuff apparently, especially when they're puppets. Kidzworld checks out Mr. Meaty.

Main Characters

  • Josh Redgrove - 16 year-old Josh is into checking out girls, making movies, and indie-punk. His main objective in life is being cool. But it's hard to keep your cool when you work at Mr. Meaty. Working the front counter, he' s the first line of defense against crazed holiday shoppers, health inspectors and tar monsters, all of which make it very difficult to carry on a good conversation with a cute girl. Josh has big dreams of being a filmmaker/rockstar, and with Parker's help, he just might make it. Until then, he's goind his best just to keep his hipster haircut out of the grease.
  • Parker Dinkleman - To 15 year-old Parker, girls are still aliens (except for video game elf babes) and action figures are still cool (in private, anyway). He's totally into horror movies and is determined to make the ultimate gore-fest with his old pal Josh, even though Josh spends was too much of his time flirting with girls. Parker's inability to bathe on a regular basis is the main reason he works in the kitchen and not out front with Josh. Not that this bothers him. At his ultra high-tech food station, he can fry up a chicken (or a pair of boots), run a gravy diagnostic, and open up a dimensional wormhole in the microwave all at the same time.
  • Fun Facts

  • Mr. Meaty started as a series of shorts during CBC's The Void.
  • Each half hour features two 15 minute episodes.
  • Show creator Jason Hopley never worked in a fast-food restaurant, but did work behin the counter at a movie theater.
  • Mr. Meaty was the third Nickelodeon/CBC Television co-production, following Little Bear and Pelswick.

    I like The Legend Of Korra slightly better because that show took risks that were hardly taken in a show of its kind. It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth.

    Well I'm not a really big fan of Taylor Swift but if I had to choose I love both because 'shake it off' is for the older teens as well. So its great as she is growing up so is her music
