Intermittently learn Spanish during Space Ghost's interviews with motivational speaker Susan Powter, comedian Kevin Meaney, and gatecrashing musicians the Bee Gees.
Space Ghost: Tell us, who are you really? What's your secret identity.
Susan: My secret identity? Um. Well, I may as well tell you here, sitting here with you, Space Ghost. I'm really a transexual, actually. I'm not a woman at all.
Space Ghost: Really?
Susan: The real identity is me! It's about as much me as you can get when I'm up on the stage.
Kevin: What is wrong with you?
Zorak: Does my music frighten you?
Moltar: How could this be? There are three of them.
Space Ghost: Moltar, what is it?
Moltar: It's the blasted Bee Gees!

Behind the scenes
- Zorak does an impression of Ren from the Nickelodeon cartoon Ren and Stimpy when he calls Space Ghost an idiot. This is followed by Space Ghost saying "D'oh" in the same manner as Homer Simpson from the animated sitcom The Simpsons.
- Brak and Sisto act like Beavis & Butt-Head, from the MTV cartoon of the same name.
- The Orkin Man is a reference to the Orkin Exterminating Company representative in their commercials.
- Space Ghost, Zorak, and Moltar are watching footage of "The Green Terror," an episode of the Japanese series Ultraseven.
- Sharrock is a division of Cogswell Cogs, which is Mr. Cogswell's company in The Jetsons.
- Despite the record cover saying "Zorak and Moltar Sing Your Favorite Lullabies," the screen advertising it says, "Zorak & Moltar Sing the Nursery Rhymes and Favourite Lullabies."
- In "$20.01," one of the reasons why Space Ghost uses the MOE 2000, is that it won't book "awful" acts like the Bee Gees.
