* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: In "Terminal", Space Ghost makes a long speech but is gradually drowned out by the background music. It's revealed that the music is coming from Zorak's boom box, who shouts "I LOVE THIS SONG!"

** ''Coast to Coast'' could be argued to have spun off the two ''very'' different things Creator/CartoonNetwork is best remembered, and watched, for: its other original cartoons, including ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'', through its "World Premiere Toon-In" kick-off special, and Creator/AdultSwim as a whole (which launched with almost entirely Williams Street productions, including ''C2C'' and ''The Brak Show''). That's before you even get to Toonami.

** ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' was intended to be a spinoff of [=SGC2C=], but then they sat on [[BackdoorPilot the episode that introduced the Aqua Teens]] until after the series started. They wound up retooling the episode into fan-favorite ''Kentucky Nightmare'' anyway.

* ThrowItIn: Between takes, George Lowe was complaining about how some fruit baskets he bought around Christmas time were recieved by people at Creator/CartoonNetwork. When putting the show together, they decided to use this bit during the intro for ''Fire Drill''.

Added DiffLines:

After it's final episode in 2004, the show had a brief revival over Gametap in 2008. In TheNewTens it had another mini revival with small scale interviews inbetween other shows as well as the April Fools interview with Tommy Wiseau. Unfortunately with the death of Clay Martin Crocker (a writer for the show as well as the voice of Zorak and Moltar) in September of 2016, it is unlikely that the show will see any sort of revival in the foreseeable future.

* TheDogBitesBack: Zorak and Moltar don't hesitate to take vengeance on Space Ghost for his abuse.



** When Zorak proceeds to antagonize Space Ghost's mentor and mentally unstable bush Warren, Warren threatens him saying "I can '''[[KillItWithFire burn you]]''' like [[Music/ArthurBrown The Crazy World of Arthur Brown]]!"

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.

* CoverVersion: Space Ghost sings [[SteveMillerBand "The Joker"]] (extremely badly) in "Kentucky Nightmare". Actually, he really only sings one line of it and then makes up a second. All accompanied with Zorak merely pounding on the keyboard, not producing any discernible melody.

** Lampshaded in "Intense Patriotism": after Space Ghost says "Open wide," he mutters "That's gonna slide right past the censors."

** Lampshaded in "Intense Patriotism": after Space Ghost says "Open wide," he mutters "That's gonna slide right past the censors."" And in the same episode, the subplot of Zorak "dropping his kids off at the pool". Kids might not realize he's using a euphemism for [[ToiletHumour taking a dump.]]

** "Curling Flower Space" is the first notable episode to have the word "damn" said, and the word "sex" is said quite a couple of times.

Added DiffLines:

** The episode "King Dead" gets its name from some dialogue in the episode, where Space Ghost orders Zorak and Moltar not to harm his TV, or they're "''(megaphone cuts out)''-king dead!"

** 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.
