Mr. Meaty.jpg

Mr. Meaty is an American-Canadian teen sitcom created by Jamie Shannon and Jason Hopley. The show centers on two lazy teenage boys named Josh Redgrove and Parker Dinkleman, who work at a fictional fast food restaurant named Mr. Meaty located inside the Scaunchboro Mall. They deal with bizarre, sci-fi and supernatural elements they occur throughout the mall including (but not limited to) soy cults, space aliens, tape worms, and robot employees. 

Mr. Meaty utilized highly detailed sets and puppets similar to Nanalan and is often criticized because of its outlandish and disturbing episode plots, creepy imagery, and character designs. However, the show has seemed to have gained a small following among certain nostalgic viewers and there have been petitions to give the series more merchandise and home video releases.

Mr. Meaty originally aired on CBC Television in Canada, and on Nickelodeon in the United States. The series ran from December 30, 2005 as a pilot, and the series premiered on September 22, 2006, until May 23, 2009, with a total of two seasons, two specials, and seventeen shorts.

Only a handful of episodes were ever officially released, as a part of the "Nick Picks Volume 5" compilation. Practically every episode of Mr. Meaty, though they can be found online on video sites, are of low quality and low resolution. Season One was available on iTunes in the US for a short amount of time, but now can only be purchased in the Australian store.
