Behind the scenes


Everlasting influence

Space Ghost appeared from behind his desk on the November 15, 1998 episode of the daytime talk show Donny & Marie, to plug the CD Space Ghost's Surf & Turf, with songs that actually come from the spin-off series Cartoon Planet. When Donny asked Space Ghost if he had a favorite interview, he coldly responded it wasn't with him.
