With this week being the 20th Anniversary of Aqua Teen Hunger Force as a regular series on Adult Swim, we take a look back at the very first appearance of our favorite trio on Space Ghost: Coast to Coast.
The Aqua Teens looked a lot different when they paid a visit to Space Ghost, Zorak and Moltar. We explain the differences between this and the regular series as the course of classic rock is changed forever in this episode, thanks a lot Space Ghost!
The new TV season is nearby. One of our favorite shows back in the day was the Saturday morning cartoon preview show that generally aired the night before the premiere of the new fall Saturday morning lineups. In 1985, CBS went all out, producing an hour-long show with Rowdy Roddy Piper and celebrities ranging from Pee Wee Herman to Herve Villechaize to Captain Lou Albano to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Who knew CBS' Saturday morning cartoons ran until 2 PM!
The Coneheads was a staple of the early days of SNL and it was later a cinematic release, but there was an animated pilot in 1983 which was a one and done. Get your sensor rings at the ready as we look at the wacky adventures of Beldar, Prymaat, and Connie Conehead.
It's time for some revisionist history on a sci-fi channel with The Amazing Screw-On Head. A star-studded cast couldn't get this out of pilot stage. Maybe it was ahead of its time?
Happy Mario Day this Wednesday! (Get it, MAR10?) We pay our respects to this non-holiday by looking at the unforgettable Super Mario Bros. Super Show! One of us never watched this on Fridays for reasons.
Just a note there were some audio issues during the recording of this and the next episode with hot mics, they've mostly been fixed in post, but they'll show up at a few points here and there.
We thought Lil' Bush would be a fair topic for a President's Day episode. Boy, were we wrong. For the most part, this aged like bad cheese. What seemed like a good idea in the 2000s ended up having a very short shelf life, running on one-note political gags from 15 years ago. We apologize in advance.
Who didn't love cartoons and video games in the early 80s? Pac Man was successful. But the anthology with cartoons of Pitfall, Space Ace, and Kangaroo? Not as much. We talk about the cartoon cavalcade called Saturday Supercade in this installment.
Rankin-Bass' first holiday cartoon was this highly fictitious take on the traditional and now-highly outdated take on the first Thanksgiving, involving a mouse who saves everything with a printing press?! All the talent in the world couldn't save this antiquated relic, given what we know now.
This show is likely the most bizarre show we will cover. Greg took copious notes on each of the 20 episodes of this Adult Swim series which makes Aqua Teen Hunger Force look straight-laced.
Warning: The language is inappropriate occasionally in this episode.
Video Power--is it a video game cartoon or a video game game show? ¿Porque no los dos? This might be the only show we will cover which can be classified as a show in two different genres, while keeping the general premise intact.
