"Elevator" is the third episode of Space Ghost Coast to Coast season one. It aired on May 6, 1994 on Cartoon Network. It was written by Matthew Maiellaro, Andy Merrill, Khaki Jones, and Keith Crofford.

Stand-up comedian Judy Tenuta swoons Space Ghost with her love songs about him, then seems rather bored with the dissident, Dr. Timothy Leary, and gets hungry for tacos when he's reminded of an interview with young up and coming actress, Ashley Judd.

Detailed summary

Space Ghost: Greetings, Ashley. We're hungry, would you like to run out and get us some tacos?
Ashley: Not particularly.
Space Ghost: Well, could you whip us up some?
Ashley: I can bake really good chocolate pies.
Space Ghost: Tacos, Ashley, tacos. You know, Mexican? We're out of here. You're welcome to join us at the taco bonito.

Behind the scenes

  • The episode title is in reference to when Moltar and Zorak ditch Space Ghost, riding in an elevator with Jack Benny.
  • Rue McClanahan starred in the sitcom The Golden Girls, which Zorak misremembers there to be an episode where the main characters all ate contaminated Geritol and died.


Everlasting influence

  • Moltar accidentally puts up Judy due to a fault in "$20.01."
