Free: Watch 92 Episodes of the Surrealist Cartoon, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Featuring Björk, Thom Yorke & More




Head over to AdultSwim.com and you can watch online 92 episodes of Space Ghost Coast to Coast. Not familiar with the show? Here’s how Vox frames it:

One of the most deceptively influential series of the past several decades, Space Ghost took the characters from a junky old Hanna-Barbera series and inserted them into the middle of a talk-show setting, where they could have the most possibility for utter strangeness. Celebrities dropped by to be interviewed, while the rest of the show’s backstage shenanigans played out with an utterly straight face, even though one of the major characters was an evil praying mantis named Zorak. Was it terribly sophisticated? No. But it invented a whole new programming bloc — Adult Swim — and proved surrealism could sell in late-night TV.

Consequence of Sound is also quick to note that Space Ghost Coast to Coast “brought an impressive lineup of musical guests to the table, including Pavement, Dave Grohl, Thurston Moore, David Byrne, Thom Yorke, Willie Nelson, and Space Ghost’s “wife”, Björk.”

You can catch Björk and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke in the clips above. Watch all episodes here. And spend a moment thinking about the show’s animator, Clay Martin Croker, who recently died at the all-too-young age of 54.
