Space Ghost in his 40s is no longer a superhero, and now he even goes by his real name Tad Ghostal. However, to remain in the spot-light he has started his own late-night talk show filmed in outer space. With his cohost and former villain Zorak, and his director Moltar they interview celebrities on Earth through their video-phone.

Did You Know?
Before any part of the episodes were written, the guests were interviewed by a crew member, sometimes wearing the Space Ghost costume made famous by Andy Merrill
in some Cartoon Planet
(1995) intros. The interviewer also instructed the guest to address him as "Space Ghost" to maintain continuity. After an interview was done, the writing crew went back over it, taking pieces out of context and out of order, assembling them into the responses to Space Ghost and the rest of the cast. Most of the show's earlier guests assumed they were participating in a relatively straightforward interview. As the series became more popular, however, more and more guests became at least peripherally familiar with what was going on. See more

In the episode with Pavement, the band members are credited as they would be on the albums. Stephen Malkmus is listed in the credits as "S.M.," and Scott Kannberg is credited as "Spiral Stairs." See more
In the TV-aired version of the episode "$20.01", Space Ghost asks Mystery Science Theater 3000 creator & former host Joel Hodgson to help him make fun of scenes from the 1960s Japanese television superhero series "Ultra Seven" in the style of MST3K. Possibly because of rights issues, the Ultra Seven clips are replaced on the Volume 2 DVD version with a mock amateur horror film produced by Williams Street. However, the original audio is kept intact. See more
