Soul Quest Overdrive was a short-lived Spin-Off of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, featuring the three characters from the "Bible Fruit" episode re-imagined as sports equipment rather than fruit, and with a fourth character - an angry Scottish punk-rocker soccer ball - added in. Mick (Gavin McInnes), Mortimer (H. Jon Benjamin), Bert (David Cross), and Tammy (Kristen Schaal) are a group of Evangelical Christians who, to put it mildly, do not behave in a very Christian manner. Drug-addicted, sex-crazed, and prone to extremely impulsive and destructive behavior, the cast of Soul Quest Overdrive make the cast of Aqua Teen Hunger Force look positively sane and well-balanced by comparison.

Soul Quest Overdrive, after losing an online pilot contest to Cheyenne Cinnamon and the Fantabulous Unicorn of Sugar Town Candy Fudge in 2010, nonetheless received a series order for six episodes. Four episodes aired once at 4:00 AM on a Tuesday in 2011 with no promotion, and the show was never aired again.

Tropes:

  • Amusing Injuries: Frequently, with the episode "Pilot" revolving entirely around this.
  • Black Comedy: The show is drenched with extremely morbid and screwed-up jokes.
  • Bloody Hilarious: Like its sister series, many of the jokes are about people dying in highly over-the-top and disturbing ways.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: The entire show is about a bunch of sociopaths who do awful things all the time.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: A random bystander was killed like this twice in "Pilot".
  • Cute and Psycho: The main characters are cute, cuddly, drug-addicted sociopaths.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The episode "Pilot" does not feature Mick. It includes only the redesigned Bible Fruit characters.
  • Grossout Show: Lots of the humor of the show is composed of very gross off-color jokes.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: The entire cast, although calling them heroes is a total stretch of the word.
  • Advertisement:
  • Jerkass: Bert. He gives Master Shake a run for his money in the jerkass department.
  • Loser Protagonist: The entire cast are a bunch of assholes who are also total fuckups.
  • No Ending: Episodes frequently end abruptly and with little or no closure.
  • Random Events Plot: Every episode.
  • Self-Surgery: In "Meals on Wheels", Mick removes his ribcage (and the rest of the cast's ribcages, without asking them) so that they can "lick your own balls".
  • The Sociopath: The entire cast, as how they were in their appearance in the Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode "Bible Fruit"
  • Spin-Off: Soul Quest Overdrive was spun off from the Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode "Bible Fruit".
  • Surreal Humor: Like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, this show relies heavily on bizarre,outlandish humor and situations.
  • Widget Series: Even moreso than its sister series.
  • Word Salad Title: The title Soul Quest Overdrive, while not as convoluted as Aqua Teen Hunger Force, still doesn't make sense and doesn't reflect the content of the show in any single way.
  • Vulgar Humor: Constantly in every single episode, with highly crude and obscene jokes packed every second.
