WMG: Space Ghost Coast to Coast
Everyone really was replicated at the end of Snatch.
I've noticed that the episode "Girl Hair" seemed to be the place where the series seemed to fully lose it, started to focus less on the interviews/guests and became more random, and whatever cohesion it had seemed to disappear. In the previous episode, the episode was invaded by replicating pods and the end of the episode ended just as the pods opened up and appeared to be about to replicate them. So perhaps they really were replicated, and the reason the show lost it's shit so much was because the characters we're watching are completely different characters.
The cast keeps getting high and drunk as the show went on.
The show was fairly tame in the beginning, and the characters were even close in personality to their old counterparts. The pressure of doing the show and trying to be funny got to them, and finally they started drinking in order to loosen up before the show. By the end of the show it got to the point where they drank and did drugs on the show.
Like a cross between Kabal's true face
and Francine's horrible damaged face◊
- That's actually unknown even on the original show. While the guys on this show were quick to call him a molten man, in his original cartoons, he's the maker of the molten men, never once actually being mentioned as one himself. He may be something even scarier....
Everything that the fans call good within Cartoon Network began with this show. Cartoon Cartoons
? Began with the World Premiere Toon-In, which showcased Dexter's Laboratory
and The Powerpuff Girls
. Cartoon Planet
, which brought them back in 2012, is very obviously a spinoff of this show, with Brak and Zorak (who were originally Space Ghost's enemies, but who must have pulled a Heel-Face Turn
between The Sixties
and The '90s
) as hosts. [adult swim]
's unusual sense of humor
began here, and its imported Killer App Family Guy
(and its related series
) ultimately descend from one of the attempted Cartoon Cartoons that never made it to a series
, and then
Toonami. And then there's Toonami
, the block responsible for the final wave of the Japanese Invasion
and thus the love many of the Millennial generation have for Anime
, which began with Moltar as its host before TOM
was created and took over. Note how this is all the things (aside from endless time-filling reruns of Scooby-Doo
) that were most important before the Network Decay
. Now, Space Ghost Coast to Coast
is, or at least ended up as
, a rather surreal show, but at least most of the Cartoon Cartoons were at least internally coherent, and Toonami was amazing
for the specific reason that it was so thoroughly coherent that it came as close to the border of the Animation Age Ghetto
as the network censors would allow and certainly transcended far past the comedy genre. Thus all that's good with CN is the descendants of Space Ghost, and all that is evil was brought about by the God of Evil Stuart "Satan" Snyder
