YMMV / Space Ghost

  • Adaptation Displacement: People raised around the shows that used characters from this are often surprised to see that Space Ghost, Zorak, Brak, and Moltar came from this show and are quite different.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: In episode "The Gargoyloids", Space Ghost and his team visit the hostile planet and has been captured from strange plants, but escape after and scare the Gargoyloids, to end, destroy the Big Gargoyloid God idol statue and now compare with Iraq War of 2003.
  • Memetic Mutation: There's lot of unintentionally hilarious moments that have been used as punchlines at different times in the modern era.
  • Narm: The 2005 comic mini series's attempts to distance itself from the comical tone of Coast to Coast and Cartoon Planet resulted in a take so dark and edgy that it likely ended up eliciting even more laughs than the comedy series as a result.
  • More Popular Spin-off or They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The Cartoon Network spinoff Space Ghost Coast to Coast serves as one of these. As while some people find the original show to be boring and the newer show comedy gold, others will enjoy the old style and find the comedy based upon it severely lacking.
