What would Late Night be like if David Letterman was
replaced by a superhero? That's the question posited by the Cartoon Network's
original series Space Ghost Coast to Coast, and the answer is: truly odd
and frequently hilarious. The series took '60s-era animated crime fighter Space
Ghost and reinvented him as the slightly addled host of a celebrity gabfest.
SG's awkward chats with guests like David Byrne, Hulk Hogan, and the Ramones
were frequently interrupted by his old foes Zorak (now the show's bandleader)
and Moltar (director). Deliberately stilted and proudly absurd, the program was
a strange but often dead-on parody of hollow celebrity worship, and garnered a
loyal cult following.
