Space Ghost Coast to Coast
The 1998 Episodes

For the unawares, Space Ghost Coast To Coast is a animated spoof talk show based around a select number of Hanna-Barbera characters from the 60's cartoon Space Ghost. The title man himself, Space Ghost, is a egotistical and childish superhero who has given up his attempts as saving the world to focus on his talk show. He is backed by his band leader (ala Paul Shaffer on the Letterman Show) Zorak, the mantis alien and space ghost prisoner, Moltar, the shows producer and body of lava, and Brak, the often victimised mental marshmallow and cat like alien. The show, which is produced for Cartoon Networks Adult Swim features the same off the wall humour as your Harvey Birdman, or Aqua Teen Hunger Force, but with the interesting element of live celebrity participation thrown in.

The main content of the show revolves around the surreal interviews of the celebrity guests who are projected through a TV on the guest couch of the set. Although celebrities getting interviewed by a fictional character would be entertaining enough, the trademark of the show is editing the pre-recorded interview footage and changing the questions to off-beat answers and consistently making their guests appear as confused, psychotic, and severely deluded.

The main content of the show revolves around the surreal interviews of the celebrity guests who are projected through a TV on the guest couch of the set. Although celebrities getting interviewed by a fictional character would be entertaining enough, the trademark of the show is editing the pre-recorded interview footage and changing the questions to off-beat answers and consistently making their guests squirm and appear as confused, psychotic, and severely deluded. Featuring celebrity guests such as Tyra Banks, Rebecca Romijn, Ben Stiller, Moby, Shirley Manson, and Kevin Smith. Being the fourth DVD release since Space Ghost went off the air, it's a pretty standard release of eleven episodes, but these are some of the best episodes produced in the shows life. 'Chinatown' see's Space Ghost trade Moltar to a Japanese baseball team for a bag of kittens, or 'Rio Ghosto' in which Space Ghost pitches his failing script to Jim Jarmusch and Kevin Smith.

This is another fantastic Adult Swim DVD release with some pure comedy gold moments and a 'off' sense of humour that is guaranteed to have tears in your eyes. Although the extras are fairly nonexistent besides a few trailers and a two minute clip of kittens running around a green screen stage, it's still a filling DVD with over two hours of great laughs. Like all comedy of this style you will have people watching it and saying 'That's just not funny, It's Stupid!', but just look to either side of that person and you'll find others doubled over in laughter.
