Overview

Good old Space Ghost finally arrives on the home video market with Cartoon Network's Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Volume One DVD set. Collecting the first eight early episodes, with an additional eight hand-picked ones after that, this double-disc set should please old fans and new with this hilarious look at the initial incarnation of the show. On the technical side, the Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo and crisp full-frame image work perfectly for each disc, giving the Hanna Barbara-inspired animation a perfect home for years to come. Extras include commentary tracks for "Elevator, "Batmantis, and the un-aired "Story Book House" on the first disc, while the second disc's episodes "Girlie Show" and "Fire Drill" come complete with alternate tracks as well. Disc one also sports an original artwork section featuring storyboards and never-before-seen storyboard shots, while disc two's extras are rounded out by Zorak's music video rendition of "Jingle Bells." While most episodes sporting multiple laugh-out-loud moments, the insight from the writers, producers, and voice actors are also just as priceless -- which should make this set a priority for any lover of the nonsensical show. With this great start to the series, one can look forward to more Space Ghost and pals with further volumes, along with releases covering the brilliance that is Cartoon Planet.

Live, from deep in outer space, it's washed-up '60s Hanna-Barbera cartoon superhero turned late-night talk show host, Space Ghost. The signature original program from Cartoon Network's early days (1994), Space Ghost Coast to Coast took to the air in 15-minute form, featuring Space Ghost in the host's chair with two villains from his salad days, Zoltar and Zorak, as his director and music director, respectively. Guests appeared "live" via remote in a TV screen that dropped down next to Mr. Ghost's desk, where he subjected them to questions that inevitably included variations on the "What are your superpowers?" theme. Just shy of genius and never short of fun, Space Ghost Coast to Coast succeeded in part by never letting its guests seem to be "in" on the joke. That is, despite the artifice necessary to make it seem that a cartoon character was conducting interviews, the interplay always felt spontaneous. This 16-episode set collects the program's earliest outings and makes a strong case for considering Space Ghost alongside America 2Night's Barth Gimble and Primetime Glick's Jiminy Glick in the faux-host hall of fame. The episodes and guests follow:
Disc 1:
  • "Elevator" featuring Judy Tenuta, Timothy Leary, and Ashley Judd
