Season seven officially started with "Rabbot Redux" on February 7, 2010, and ended on May 2, 2010 with "One Hundred", with a total of twelve episodes. Aqua Teen Hunger Force is about the surreal adventures and antics of three anthropomorphic fast food items: Master Shake, Frylock, and Meatwad, who live together as roommates and frequently interact with their human next-door neighbor, Carl Brutananadilewski in a suburban neighborhood in South New Jersey.
Season seven is notable for being the final season of the series to premiere as an Aqua Teen Hunger Force season, as the series started using alternative titles in 2011. Episodes in season seven were written and directed by Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro. Almost every episode in this season features a special guest appearance, which continues a practice used in past seasons. This season has been made available on DVD, and other forms of home media, including on demand streaming on Hulu Plus.
Every episode in this season was written and directed by series creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro, who have both written and directed every episode of the series. All episodes originally aired in the United States on Cartoon Network's late night programming block, Adult Swim. This is the final season branded under the Aqua Teen Hunger Force title before Willis and Maiellaro started using a different alternative title for each season in 2011. As with most seasons, several episodes originally aired outside of their production order.
Season seven officially began with "Rabbot Redux" on February 7, 2010. "Rabbot Redux" is the conclusion of the season six finale, "Last Last One Forever and Ever", and features multiple references to the series' first episode, "Rabbot" and many other episodes as well. "Rabbot Redux" also featured a new intro and credits song, which was only used for that episode, performed by Schoolly D. "Rabbot Redux" marks Schoolly D's first appearance on Aqua Teen Hunger Force since season one, as well as Rabbot's first appearance since "The Last One". Also in "Rabbot Redux", it is revealed that Frylock has legs that simply retract into his body, which was never mentioned before.
Season seven also features the series' 100th episode, "One Hundred". The episode marks Dr Weird's first appearance since Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters, as well as Handbanana's second appearance.
In season seven the main cast consisted of Dana Snyder who provided the voice of Master Shake, Carey Means who provided the voice of Frylock, and series co-creator Dave Willis who provided the voice of both Meatwad and Carl Brutananadilewski.

Ramsey Isler of IGN gave "Rubberman" an 8 out of 10, which is considered "Great" comparing the episode to a Horror Show, but also saying it was entertaining to watch. "Eggball" was given a 6.3 out of 10 which is considered "Okay", by Isler who thought the pinball themed episode had real potential but gave it a negative review calling it a "dud" and an incoherent mess and followed it up with "ATHF—it's always going to be random, and it's always going to be hit or miss". Isler appreciated "Multiple Meats" for being Meatwad centric and for not using dark humor or shock value comedy during the majority of the episode and ultimately gave the episode a 7.8 out of 10, which is considered "Good". Isler gave "Moster" a generally positive review but gave the ending some criticism for not being "as strong as it could have been" and ultimate gave the episode an 8.6 which is considered "Great". "Rabbot Redux" was given a 7 which is considered "Good" by Isler who found to be random, and gave the episode a neural review, and claimed it was better than the Super Bowl XLIV half time show, which had aired earlier that night on CBS. Jonah Krakow of IGN, who reviewed the sneak peek version of "A PE Christmas" that aired on December 13, 2009, gave the episode an 8.5 which is considered "Great", he called it a good come back for the series after "Last Last One Forever and Ever" and compared it to several other Adult Swim Christmas specials that aired that month.
