** Hilariously parodied in a skit where Zorak goes BlahBlahBlah while Space Ghost monologues about one of his adventures. For no reason whatsoever, Brak appears out of no where for a brief few seconds while the words "Cameo Appearance" appear under him.

Per a former editor, anything owned by Turner was fair game, so they had all sorts of footage used, including scenes from Turner-owned movies and stuff caught on Creator/{{CNN}} satellite feeds.

In 2012, Cartoon Planet was [[{{Uncancelled}} relaunched]] on Friday night, playing some of Creator/CartoonNetwork's original "classic cartoons" as they call them, as a part of the network's 20th anniversary. Zorak and Brak return as hosts. Now after one year of running, it appears that the block has lost its original purpose, the block now plays a hodge podge of both old and current shows, including ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'' and ''WebVideo/AnnoyingOrange'' and now not only runs on fridays, but every week day as well. It ended its run on February 8, 2014, and then was re-launched again on Boomerang starting June 6.

** The outro has Brak paraphrasing the credits song from ''TheBeverlyHillbillies''. Naturally, he doesn't quite know the lyrics and fills in as best he can:

''Cartoon Planet'' (1995-1997) was a [[SpinOff spin-off]] of ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'', or, what happened when the creative team behind said show was given free rein with the Turner cartoon library. ''Cartoon Planet'' was a mix of songs, sketches, and clips of older shows, described by head writer Pete Smith as "a cross between ''The Sonny and Cher Show'', ''Series/TheElectricCompany'', and recess at the [[UsefulNotes/RichardNixon Richard M. Nixon]] School for Wayward Boys". The show starred Space Ghost, Zorak, and Brak in the same character interpretations shown in ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'': Space Ghost as the egotistical blowhard host, Zorak his long-suffering (and evil) foil, and Brak as a loveable "half-lobotomized" simpleton. The characteristics of Brak in Cartoon Planet and banter between him and Zorak were the inspiration for their portrayal on ''WesternAnimation/TheBrakShow''.
