The series is known for being one of Adult Swims' most notable creations in their the blocks history- the limited animation (and smaller budget), surreal stoner humor and pervasive tone of excessive weirdness inspired the creation of several other shows, like (most notably) WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce, which could be considered a SpiritualSuccessor to this show, despite the two running at basically the same time.

** They have offered an explanation for this, though. The WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost episode ''The Lure'' ends with Brak and his brother Sisto flying into a swarm of Piranamites, supposedly deadly space insects. However, Brak and Sisto survived the Piranamite swarm, but lost much of their [=IQs=], and that's why Brak is the way he is now. Unfortunately for the creators, Brak appeared on 60s Space Ghost other times after The Lure as normal.

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: The "Sharrock" episode, which is really a tribute to the music of Sonny Sharrock and Lance Carter. They even featured Thurston Moore, guitarist for the alternative rock SonicYouth, under the pretense that it's Fred Cracklin.

* SeinfeldianConversation: The ColdOpening to "Sharrock" features Space Ghost complaining about having to pick Zorak up and telling him to get a part-time job, all while Sonny Sharrock's music plays in the background.



* SpecialEditionTitle: For the episode which parodied the ''Late Show with DavidLetterman'', a new title was commissioned panning the galaxy in the manner the ''Late Show'' titles pan around New York. It was used on other episodes in order to amortize the cost of the titles on to the budgets for them. There was also a special opening for the MusicalEpisode.

Added DiffLines:

* ClumsyCopyrightCensorship: The DVD version of "Glen Campbell" removes the audio of the ''Simpsons'' clip Space Ghost and Zorak watch at the beginning (as well as removing Space Ghost calling Moltar to watch the show and asking which character was Homer), but if you listen carefully, you could still hear the Simpsons audio whenever Space Ghost speaks.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: "Curling Flower Space" has Space Ghost talking about the time when bugs "wore suits", "opened doors", and "were obedient to Man". Zorak, understandably, has no idea how to respond to that.



--> '''Zorak''': This is shameful, even for me.
