YMMV / Space Ghost

  • Broken Base: While Space Ghost Coast to Coast is widely considered to have spun straw into comedy gold by repurposing animation from a boring cartoon into a legendary cable hit, fans of the original cartoon feel that Coast To Coast is overrated and has completely overshadowed a Cult Classic.
  • 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: It's safe to assume that Space Ghost Coast to Coast and Cartoon Planet are the only reason anyone remembers Space Ghost these days.
  • "Weird Al" Effect: Be honest, who would have remembered this cartoon if not for Coast to Coast or Cartoon Planet? People raised around the shows that used characters from this are often surprised to find the original episode and see that Space Ghost, Zorak, Brak, and Moltar are not in any way like their Cartoon Network counterparts.
