Season 8, Episode 1 This episode is famous for being the first introduction of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Space Ghost sells the show out to a fast food restaurant named Burger Trench, but the restaurant’s mascots, the Aqua Teen Hunger Force, forcefully disrupt the show with their constant jabbering and outward promotion of the chain restaurant. The bun is in your mind!
Season 4, Episode 16 Guests: Colin Quinn, Pavement, Red Green, Goldie Hawn & Tommy Davidson This episode is absolutely jam-packed with guests, and Pavement only adds to the chaos. The band finds time to play bizarre noise-rock fits with lyrics consisting only of “Space Ghost” Space Ghost constantly mistakes Pavement for the Beatles for some bizarre reason. After interviewing all of the guests, Space Ghost saves the planet from a rogue dog named Fido. And who could forget the special cameo appearance of The Great Gazoo?
Season 4, Episode 18 Guests: Rob Zombie & Raven-Symoné Macho Man Randy Savage completely steals the show in this episode. He voices the grandfather of Space Ghost (who really is just Space Ghost with a white beard slapped onto his face). He periodically interrupts Space Ghost during his show, before taking over the reigns himself. Macho Man interviews a very young Raven-Symoné, asking her such questions about whether she has ever piledrived anyone at her school. The episode ends in an all-out wrestling brawl between the cast of the show before Grandpa Ghost leaves.
Season 6. Episode 1 Guests: Bob Costas & Al Roker A brand new product has hit the store shelves – Chambraigne! This shampoo is an ‘intelihancer’ that grants users increased intelligence. The product is even endorsed by Al Roker. Space Ghost becomes a big fan of the product, but his stupidity begins to upset some living brains who created it. After the brains stomach watching through the talk show, they rush to Ghost Planet to try and stop Space Ghost from endorsing their fake product before his idiocy exposes their scam.
Season 7. Episode 1 Guest: Willie Nelson Ghost Planet is bought out by a failing liquor store, who’s mascot is “Old Kentucky Shark”. Due to agreements with the liquor store owner, Old Kentucky Shark must be featured heavily throughout the talk show, and Space Ghost asks plenty of questions in regards to this liquor. Later on, a crazed bear shows up and throws the entire show into disarray. We also catch a few quick glimpses of Space Ghost’s documentary series about Sharks and Bears (Nature’s Best Friends). Later on, the studio is overrun by killer bees after the crew feels the need to ‘crack a window’.
Season 4, Episode 2 Bob Odenkirk and David Cross Mr. Show duo Bob Odenkirk and David Cross visit the show and Space Ghost introduces a brand new segment called “Space Time Quiz Fun 9000”. Space Ghost asks the guests a variety of questions, including what their super powers are. Turns out, David Cross’ super power is he can detect when people are in trouble from far away, but has no way of getting to them quickly. Bob’s super power is craving sweets. The Quiz Time segment results in a bunch of rapid fire questions, as a result, Bob Odenkirk becomes addicted to Space Ghost’s power band blasts.
Season 2, Episode 7 Guests: Hulk Hogan & Slash As Space Ghost, Moltar, and Zorak wait for the show to start, they spew some haikus before the opening credits. Hulk Hogan is the first guest, and Space Ghost is overly concerned whether he is getting enough oxygen. The two of them start debating on who’s the strongest person in the Turner organization – Ted Turner or Hulk Hogan. Later on, Zorak and Moltar improvise guitar solos with their mouths.
Season 3, Episode 10 Guests: James Hetfield & Kirk Hammett (Metallica) The second part of a two-part story arc, Moltar is on the run and his role is filled in by the bumbling Tansit. Tansit’s inability to probably run the console leads to nonstop hijinks before the guest are introduced. The episode’s presentation is broken down into bizarre “acts” with no rhyme or reason. With two of them involving bizarre pregnancy’s that Space Ghost is shocked by. Space Ghost eventually grows tired of Tansit’s mistakes and fires him. As it turns out, Moltar is on a bus to Jacksonville.
Season 7, Episode 3 Guests: Thom Yorke & Björk Featuring blockbuster musical guests Thom Yorke of Radiohead and Icelandic singer Bjork, Space Ghost starts things off on the wrong foot by attempting to burn 100 copies of the new Radiohead album. Zorak and Moltar discover that Space Ghost is actually married and Bjork is his wife. Bjork calls into the show several times, asking Space Ghost questions of no real importance, and Space Ghost does his best to come off as the most inconsiderate husband in the world. Despite all of this, they attempt to get married again at the end of the episode before Space Ghost pulls the plug on it.
Season 8, Episode 9 Guest: Conan O’Brien Perhaps the most surreal of all Space Ghost episodes is Fire Ant, which guest stars The Late Show-era Conan O’Brien. After the interview gets off to a rocky start, Space Ghost is bitten by a small aggressive fire ant. He does not take this transgression lightly and vows to follow the ant all the back home so he could destroy his family. What proceeds is an 11-minute long sequence of Space Ghost slowly flying behind the fire ant, mumbling and humming to himself. Nearly the entire episode consists of this drawn out slow chase, before ending in hilarious fashion (we won’t spoil it).

- Trivia Before any part of the episodes were written, the guests were interviewed by a crew member, sometimes wearing the Space Ghost costume made famous by Andy Merrill in some Cartoon Planet (1995) intros. The interviewer also instructed the guest to address him as "Space Ghost" to maintain continuity. After an interview was done, the writing crew went back over it, taking pieces out of context and out of order, assembling them into the responses to Space Ghost and the rest of the cast. Most of the show's earlier guests assumed they were participating in a relatively straightforward interview. As the series became more popular, however, more and more guests became at least peripherally familiar with what was going on.
Space Ghost : I'll be dead long before you were born and I'll be dead long before you'll be dead.

- Alternate versions In the TV-aired version of the episode "$20.01", Space Ghost asks Mystery Science Theater 3000 creator & former host Joel Hodgson to help him make fun of scenes from the 1960s Japanese television superhero series "Ultra Seven" in the style of MST3K. Possibly because of rights issues, the Ultra Seven clips are replaced on the Volume 2 DVD version with a mock amateur horror film produced by Williams Street.

- I'll be dead long before you were born and I'll be dead long before you'll be dead.
- I have a giant brain that is able to reduce any complex machine into a simple yes or no answer.
- I'll spank you smartly with my spank ray.
- Bears are Crazy. They'll bite your head if you're wearing a steak on it.
- I saw a yard gnome once. It didn't scare me!
- Dames are like mustard: they taste great on a sandwich. But when you're not eating a sandwich... they just sit there in the fridge... on a shelf... in a jar... labeled... mustard.
- Welcome back, stupid viewers! You'll watch anything! Go ahead, change the channel. You'll be back!

Characters / Space Ghost Coast to Coast
open/close all folders
Space Ghost/Tad Ghostal
- Adaptational Jerkass : Played for Laughs , but Space Ghost is considerably less pleasant and rather abusive (especially when alluding to his time when Jan and Jace were his wards). Crosses into Adaptational Villainy at times as he also performs decidedly unheroic acts such as blowing up Paris and the Hoover Dam.
- Adaptational Wimp : Depends on the episode, but Rule of Funny can make him into one.
- Awful Wedded Life : A one-sided example with Bj�rk , as it's pretty obvious Space Ghost finds her annoying (though admittedly, it's not hard to see why ).
- Butt-Monkey : If he can be humiliated, he will.
- Casanova Wannabe : Has tried and failed to woo the affections of various female guests. Those he (seemingly) succeeds with either later annoy him (Bjork) or something happens to prevent it from going any further (Rebecca Romijin).
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander : His ideas and logic behind them are very... out there, to say the least.
- Disproportionate Retribution : After a montage of his worst moments, Space Ghost bombs Paris and blames France because "montage" is a French word.
- The Ditz : Rivals Brak and Tansit as the dumbest character on the show (though he's still moderately smarter than the both of them).
- The Dog Bites Back : He will blast Zorak, if the mantis pushes him too much (or just because). He also blasted Warren, his mentor who is heavily implied to have taken advantage of him, when the sentient plant tries to take over his show. Maybe .
- I Just Want to Have Friends : Is shown to be pretty lonely, strives for acceptance, and occasionally tries to make friendly advances on not just the co-workers who hate him but also his guests. This is further explored in "The Justice Hole".
- Insane Troll Logic : Space Ghost engages this mentality at times, due to being a total Cloud Cuckoo Lander . Such as believing he would assume the form of steam, to get back into the studio after being locked out. Or walking into his own house and not recognizing it because of some extra "lamps" (actually Zorak, Moltar and Jon Benjamin wearing lampshades) and deducing that he needs to buy a new house.
- It's All About Me : Taken to an extreme in "Chinatown", where he doesn't let Tyra Banks get in a word edgewise.
- Though it should be noted that he did still technically get punished, as he got arrested at the end of "Lawsuit" (although it was for assaulting Zorak who tried to sue him as well). And as "Sequel" showed, Space Ghost was still in jail for it.
- Miles Gloriosus : Played with, in that Space Ghost is capable of combat, but he also has a tendency to make his experiences sound more bold than they actually were, and his combat prowess fluctuates based on Rule of Funny .
- Nice, Mean, and In-Between : Space Ghost acts at the In-Between, being more of a jerk than Moltar, but somewhat less than Zorak.
- Nominal Hero : Again, Played for Laughs . Space Ghost claims to be a hero to millions, but as one can tell from the other tropes on this page, he's not a very good one.
- Only Known by Their Nickname : Or rather, "Only Known By Their Superhero Name". In this show, Space Ghost's real name is Tad Ghostal but everybody still refers to him as Space Ghost.
- Our Ghosts Are Different : How different depends on the episode, but he's generally portrayed as some sort of ghost. Who still eats and drinks and breathes, sometimes. Despite claiming he doesn't need oxygen.
- Screams Like a Little Girl : Literally, as shown in "Snatch."
- Token Human : Not counting the guests, Space Ghost is usually the only human (or humanlike) character in the show.
- Took a Level in Jerkass : Slowly became more and more of a self-absorbed, dim-witted Jerkass over the course of the series.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes? : "Cahill" demonstrates that he's afraid of thunder, much to Zorak's amusement.
- Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny! : Sometimes fines himself very easily becoming distracted by something for the entire episode. Examples include the Christmas Special where he becomes obsessed with the "Click click click" lyric from Up on the Rooftop for the entire episode, and the World Premier Toon-In special where he obsesses over a danish that Van Partible was eating.
- Badass Boast : His reference as The Lone Locust/Mantis of the Apocalypse
- Butt-Monkey : Considering the Running Gag of Zorak getting blasted by SG's power bands.
- Hypnotic Eyes : Which, among other things, he used in an attempt to make Ice-T get him some fly honeys.
- Hypocritical Humor : A Running Gag has Zorak getting annoyed or angry when people lie, even though he's definitely not above lying, himself.
- I'm a Humanitarian : There have been a number of jokes made about his species' leanings towards cannibalism.
- It's a Wonderful Plot : "Zorak" reveals that Zorak being born kept Space Ghost from becoming a successful celebrity and politician. Naturally, Zorak takes this as motivation to continue ruining his life.
- Jerkass : Out of the entire crew, Zorak is probably the most unpleasant of them.
- Lampshade Hanging : Most of Zorak's humor comes from him commenting on (i.e. ridiculing) the various things Space Ghost says and does.
- Mantis Mating Meal : Zorak (a giant mantis) mentions that his mom ate her dad, and he himself ate his little cousin as he mentions (and apologizes) it during a family reunion. His uncles don't seem to have a grudge though.
- Nice, Mean, and In-Between : While all three of them are jerks, Zorak is Mean by virtue of being the most outwardly spiteful and rude.
- Nightmare Fetishist : Zorak displays some tendencies of this. Perhaps his most evident is his proposed TV show, Blood Dumpster , where his Psycho Knife Nut character pursues someone through a tunnel for an entire episode.
- Product Placement : Played for Laughs in "Dimethylprimidinol Bisulfite", where he continuously shills the titular product. He also plugs one for Mentos, when asked if he's hiding another set of arms under his vest.
- Puppy-Dog Eyes : Seen when he cries over not getting any fly honeys in "Needledrop".
- Replacement Goldfish : The original Zorak was killed by Thundercleese at the 2003 New Years Eve party. When The Brak Show got cancelled later that same night, the Zorak from that show was hired to replace the original.
- Would Hurt a Child : Well, he did eat his nephew Raymond.
- Ambiguously Bi : He's married to Linda, but has demonstrated a mancrush towards Erik Estrada. Also, according to Zorak, he's guilty of writing detailed Star Trek slashfics.
- Ax-Crazy : Moltar occasionally reveals this side of himself, such as when he attempts to blow up the planet (again)
- Bad Liar : A Running Gag with Moltar features his rather poor attempts to make himself or his ideas sound more impressive. Such as "Curling Flower Space", where he claims he was visited by a talking car, and then backtracks with a claim he was repairing his broken lungs.
- Context-Sensitive Button : Whenever Moltar is shown working, he's always pulling the same lever for every single thing. This is lampshaded a few times in the show.
- Humanoid Abomination : Implied with The Unreveal discussed in Nightmare Face
- Nice, Mean, and In-Between : For a definition of "Nice", Moltar is generally the least assholish of the three.
- Nightmare Face : He's implied to have one under his helmet, judging by Zorak's reaction in one episode's gag where Moltar removes it for a dollar.
- Nightmare Fetishist : Not as much as Zorak, but he does like to watch car crashes and things burn.
- Not So Above It All : Despite usually being the voice of reason, Moltar isn't above things like encouraging Space Ghost to touch the replicating pod with Zorak, or childishly cutting off George Clinton to push Erik Estrada's interview.
- Only Sane Man : When Space Ghost and Zorak are your coworkers...
- The Unreveal : He takes off his helmet on a couple of occasions, but his face is covered by a bright flash of light.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes? : "Needledrop" reveals that Moltar is afraid of ghosts, after he unwittingly summons one. However, he makes it clear that he hates, not fears SG.
The Council of Doom
The Council as a Whole
- Adapted Out : The Creature King, who's the leader of the Council in the shorts.
- Go-Karting with Bowser : They sometimes collaborate with Space Ghost on his projects, such as acting as his telethon call panelists.
- Poor Man's Substitute : In-verse and Played for Laughs , as the often derided Lokar and Tansit took on Zorak and Moltar's spots, after they were made mainstays on the talk show.
- Breakout Character : To the point of being an Ascended Extra in Cartoon Planet and getting his own show .
- Cats Are Mean : Subverted. While he is a catlike being, he's rather innocuous as a villain .
- Catchphrase : "Hi, my name is Brak!" and "All Hail Brak!", both of which were initially all he would say.
- Characterization Marches On : When Coast to Coast first started, Brak and his brother Sisto were nothing more than parodies of Beavis And Butthead . Later on, Brak developed his own character.
- Cloudcuckoolander : It's part of what made him a Breakout Character in the first place.
- Cute, but Cacophonic : The general attitude towards him. Brak has adorable mannerisms, but is generally pretty loud and can be intrusive and obnoxious about it.
- The Ditz : Besides or perhaps alongside Tansit, Brak is the only character on the show who's dumber than Space Ghost.
- Early-Installment Weirdness : In the first episode, his voice is EXACTLY like Zorak.
- Extreme Omnivore : If "Surprise" is anything to go by, his favorite foods include asparagus, ibuprofen, and used cotton swabs .
- Fan Disservice : Not to the same degree as Tansit, but he did go topless in "King Dead" (read: his chest was recolored)
- Hidden Depths : "Telethon" shows that he's surprisingly well-educated about the Renaissance.
- It's All About Me : At least in the days when he tended to just yell his name.
- Phlebotinum-Induced Stupidity : The original Space Ghost cartoon showed Brak to be a quite well-spoken and crafty villain. The explanation for his sudden stupidity is that in the episode The Lure , he flies his ship into a swarm of alien termite-like creatures called piranha mites (or nebula of pirranamyte). He survived the encounter, but was left completely stupid afterwards.
- Too Dumb to Live : He's had moments, such as believing a very irate Space Ghost is going to give him a bath , even after watching SG take Zorak's head off.
- The Unintelligible : Originally had a robotic voice, but later just communicated in robotic buzzing and droning
- Ambiguously Gay : He has referred to Moltar and Zorak as "lover", once inquired Moltar about selling scented thongs, and was a little too into the idea of Moltar playing the role of his 50s girlfriend in the planned theme of "Surprise".
- Hell Is That Noise : His dialogue is accompanied by odd insect buzzing.
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness : Lokar always speaks in such a manner, to make himself sound refined as well as to insult people. That said, it has backfired, such as when he unwittingly referred to Space Ghost as "beautiful".
- Trrrilling Rrrs : Has a tendency to roll his R's for dramatic and pompous effect.
- Adaptational Wimp / Badass Decay : In his first few appearances, he started out as slightly menacing, muscularly stocky, and had a deep raspy voice . But in his later appearances he's cowardly, flabby, and sports a nebbish voice.
- The Chew Toy : Even moreso than Zorak. Tansit is often the subject of disrespect whenever he appears. He even lampshades it, once, when he bemoans how he often gets invited to the show, only to end up doing jack.
- Catchphrase : "PREDICATE!" In his earlier appearances.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome : According to Word of God , Tansit was literally forgotten about by the other characters. Of course, he was also fired in one episode, which could explain his absence, as well.
- Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas : "Hi, mom!"
- Fan Disservice : Strips down to his underwear in "King Dead", and noticeably has a gut
- Noodle Incident : Tansit mentions an incident in "Surprise", where Moltar wouldn't let him stab Space Ghost with the "rusty metal".
- Prone to Tears : He cries very easily.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning : Subverted. While he has noticeable red eyes and is a villain, Tansit is a total joke.
- Adaptational Name Change : She was called Spider Woman in the original shorts, but was changed for Coast to Coast for obvious reasons .
- Abhorrent Admirer : She makes numerous advances towards Space Ghost, much to the disgust of him and the rest of the villains.
- The Smurfette Principle : The only female member of the Council of Doom, as well as the general/recurring cast.
- Beard of Evil : Which, as a Running Gag , constantly changes
- Faux Affably Evil : "Hipster" really showed this side of him, as Space Ghost's suave "replacement" who nevertheless made threats and intended to rob The Millionaire blind at his party.
- Jive Turkey : As part of his smooth persona
- Kick the Dog : "Hipster", in particular, had Chad gleefully singing about how he was able to beat someone (Brak) up.
- Butt-Monkey : It'd be easier to count how much goes right for poor Harvey than what goes wrong. He really is, as Space Ghost puts it, a "Six-piece Chicken McNobody".
- Catchphrase : BIRRRRRRRRRDMAN!
- The Chew Toy : His appearances in "Pilot" and "Sequel" are pretty much made of him getting disrespected by everyone, desperately trying (and failing) to keep his marriage together, and, in "Pilot", gets fired due to falling asleep from the lack of sunlight.
- The Dog Bites Back : In "Pilot", he sics Avenger to maul the crap out of Lokar, after the latter constantly insults him. And after all the crap he takes in "Sequel", he takes the surly Space Ghost head-on.
- Dude, Where's My Respect? : He demands respect but, predictably, he gets none whatsoever.
- Guttural Growler : He has a noticeable growl-like quality to his voice.
