Synopsis

Amazon.com
The third offering from Space Ghost and company, this disc closely follows the format of Cartoon Planet, the cult-favorite variety show that runs on the Cartoon Network. There are songs galore, though few of them are outright parodies; rather, most take their cues from popular styles and filter them through the goofily surreal sensibilities of Cartoon Planet. The loopy Brak sings about his Hawaiian vacation and raps about Zorak in "Fight the Power Bands" (in which Space Ghost cheerfully chimes in with "Tell it, mack daddy!"), while the lovably gruff Zorak offers a Nirvana homage on "Nasty" ("I call Space Ghost a big baboon / I oughta be spanked, and it oughta be soon"), and apes the Cops theme song on "Bad Bug" ("I'm an evil mantis who won't be kind / I'll shoot my laser at your big behind"). It's not as strong as Space Ghost's Musical Bar-B-Que--there's a little too much filler among this album's 36 tracks. --Randy Silver

Gotta Love It

"If you like ridiculous songs about some of the strangest topics around then you NEED this CD. I can't get enough of the Space Ghost CDs. This CD is filled with pure nonsense and humorous ear candy."
Wish there was a DVD to match

"I really enjoy Space Ghost Coast to Coast, and this CD is a bonus! My kids didn't know what to think about it at first, but now they love it as much as I do. If you are a Space Ghost fan, you MUST buy this CD. Let's just hope Space Ghost comes out officially on DVD! I'll be in line to buy one!"
The most comical relief you can find in a lifetime

"I've known Space Ghost and gang to be funny, but this is just too funny. Especially Brak, which is my personal favorite. I can listen to this CD for hours and still not get sick of it. My favorites are probably "Metalhead," "Bad Bug" and "Fight the Power Bands." But what can I say, I love em' all! The next chance I get, I am purchasing the other two Space Ghost albums!
I just hope they keep making more of these."
