Product Description

Space Ghost Coast to Coast Vol. 1 (DVD)

Superhero-turned-talk show host Space Ghost presents all-new celebrity interviews with strange interactions from his bandleader Zorak and his cameraman Moltar. Live action guest stars include Weird Al Yankovich, Bobcat Goldthwait, The Ramones, Judy Tenuta, Hulk Hogan and more!


What would Late Night be like if David Letterman was replaced by a superhero? That's the question posited by the Cartoon Network's original series Space Ghost Coast to Coast, and the answer is: truly odd and frequently hilarious. The series took '60s-era animated crime fighter Space Ghost and reinvented him as the slightly addled host of a celebrity gabfest. SG's awkward chats with guests like David Byrne, Hulk Hogan, and the Ramones were frequently interrupted by his old foes Zorak (now the show's bandleader) and Moltar (director). Deliberately stilted and proudly absurd, the program was a strange but often dead-on parody of hollow celebrity worship, and garnered a loyal cult following. However, those diehard fans may be disappointed by this two-disc set, which features only 16 of the 22 episodes from the first three seasons (a clip from one missing episode, "A Space Ghost Christmas," is included in the supplemental features). Also somewhat of a letdown is the commentary from the show's creative team, which is amusing but rarely informative. --Paul Gaita

Space Ghost Coast-to-Coast seems to be an acquired taste, with silly and dry wit that I find quite palatable. It's theme is a very bad talk show which Space Ghost hosts, along with his old enemies Zorak, Brak, and Moltar.

Back in 1966, Space Ghost was a real cartoon (that I used to watch) that aired for 2 years, only 42 episodes, but introduced many of the characters that show up on Space Ghost Coast-to-Coast; like Gloop and Gleep, Lokar, and Jace & Jan in this first release on DVD.

It was cheesy back then, and SGCTC takes cheese to a whole new level. SG is the worst talk show host ever, asking most guests if they have enough oxygen and what their superpowers are. The guests are real, appearing on a TV screen in SG's "set". Some of the guests, like Hulk Hogan, Terry Jones, Sandra Bernhard, and Carol Channing (to name only a few) seem to have a good time with the odd interview setup. Others show obvious discomfort at what the show will do with their words, like Donny Osmond, David Byrne, and especially guitarist Slash.

In between interviews, SG gets into childish arguments with Zorak, and some pretty silly things happen. If you like oddball humor like Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Beavis & Butthead, you will probably like SPCTC. Here is a quick mention of what you will find on these first sixteen episodes.

Disc One:

Elevator - guests Judy Tenuta, Timothy Leary, and very briefly Ashley Judd. This first episode is the worst of the lot, they seemed to be feeling around for how to make this quirky idea work.

Spanish Translation - guests Susan Powter, Kevin Meany, and briefly The Bee-Gees. Funny lines, (SP) "I have many super powers and a colossal bulk that frightens evil villains!

I am ecstatic that this is now available on DVD! One of the shows that my daughter and I have most enjoyed watching together has been SPACE GHOST COAST TO COAST, which is easily one of the most improbable great shows TV has ever seen. The concept of the show is utterly brilliant: has-been sixties television cartoon character Space Ghost is given his own late night talk show, which is broadcast from the distant regions of outer space using some of his arch enemies as staff and crew, including the molten monster Zoltar as director and the hysterically funny (and evil!) giant praying mantis Zorak as his musical director, a la Paul Schaeffer. But that is only half the brilliance of the show. Adding an extraordinarily edgy and searing theme song by Sonny Sharrock and a host of brilliantly selected guests, the show comes across as Dave Letterman from the Bizarro World. Because they are in outer space, the guests can only appear by remote broadcast, and each guest is introduced by a television screen dropping from the ceiling, providing the only real life presence in what is otherwise a minimally and cheaply animated show.
Space Ghost is a brilliantly awful host, constantly (and accidentally) disrespecting his guests, and asking one question after another that completely unillumines the lives and careers of the guests. His questions of his guests are frequently absurd and apropos of nothing. His most commonly asked questions are "What are your super powers?" and "What is your secret identity?" When Michael Stipe of R.E.M. appears as a guest, Space Ghost asks, "Is that you in the corner?" to which Stipe replies, "Yes."
The guests are brilliantly chosen and are precise equivalents of those appearing on Dave Letterman/Jay Leno/Conan O'Brien.

First of all, I love the episodes on this DVD. Some of the guests are game and hilarious (Wierd Al, Terry Jones), others appear confused by the whole experience (David Byrne, Adam West), while others seem just plain aggravated (Alice Cooper, Donnie Osmond). Oddly enough, the show works on all these levels. My favorite episodes have to be the Batman and Gilligan episodes, which feature stars of the respective TV shows. It's a lot of fun watching their reactions to SG's inane questions. The animosity between Space Ghost, Moltar, and Zorak is hilarious as well.
The absence of six episodes does hurt the DVD a bit. The whole thing seemed a little light for a two-disc set. I also found the commentaries somewhat awful. It sounds like six people all trying to talk at the same time. Aside from some artwork, there are really no extras here (a Zorak music video is from an episode that should have been included anyway). I would have liked to see more about how the show is actually created and how the interviews actually work.
But the real meat here is the show itself, and what is here is top-notch. Both fans and the uninitiated will enjoy this disk.

I have loved Space Ghost Coast to Coast from the very beginning. Watching the pompous and pretentious ego of Space Ghost constantly being pummeled by Moltar and Zorak, all the while being intellectually outwitted by his guests (including even Bob Denver) is an absolute joy to those of us that hate the inanity of modern talk shows. Taken as a whole, the different personas on Space Ghost Coast to Coast synergistically combine to produce the simultaneously best and worst talk show in history.
The episodes for this DVD set were carefully picked, and contain some of the greatest moments in talk show history. Among my favorites are: 'Batmantis', in which Zorak dresses as a superhero and the Ghost interviews two former Catwomen from the old "Batman" TV show; 'Birthday', where the Ramones torment Space Ghost by eating his cake; and 'Bobcat', in which Bobcat Goldthwaite unsubtly betters the Ghost.
As for weaknesses, the DVD set has few. I personally would have liked to have seen more Brak, but that's just personal taste. The only really glaring issue with the set is the lack of extras. There are episode commentaries on a couple of the episodes, which are great, but that's about it. Still all in all this is a DVD set that no lover of Space Ghost or lunacy in general should be without. I anxiously await future volumes.
