"One episode is filmed to look like Space Ghost's pilot, with the producers vaguely threatening that if he doesn't shape up, they'll replace him with Birdman. However, the second is set up to be Birdman's pilot and ends with them letting him go (he can't host a late-night talkshow because of his solar powers) and hiring Space Ghost to replace him (to Zorak and Moltar's horror)." I never thought the two to be contradictory, but rather reinforcing. The Space Ghost pilot takes place after the Birdman pilot, and Birdman's appearance in the former episode is him wanting his old job back.
