YMMV: Space Ghost

  • Adaptation Displacement: Youth born after 1994 are often surprised to see that the cartoon talk show host, Zorak, Brak, and Moltar came from this show.
  • 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: The show just seemed so silly, even by the standards of the time, that Cartoon Network in the 1990s and 2000s loved using the characters as parodies. The characters showed up in three other shows, served as hosts for program blocks, and sold CDs of nothing but jokes about them.
  • More Popular Spin-off: The Cartoon Network spinoff Space Ghost Coast to Coast is far more popular than the show that spawned it.
