(Dramatic orchestra hit)
Bobcat Goldthwait (BG):
Yes! Hello, if you are watching us on other planets, I want you to know that... on Earth, I am the leader, I rule! everyone on Earth must follow me! Ha ha ha ha! (aside) Don't tell them the truth, okay, Space Ghost?
(Opening theme music & titles)
Space Ghost (SG):
(invisos in) Greetings! I'm Space Ghost, welcome to the show. Joining me tonight, comedian Bobcat Goldthwait, and rock and roll citizens The Ramones.
Zorak (Z):
(jamming) Hey ho, let's go! Hey ho, let's go!
SG:
Zorak is all geeked up about the Ramones being here. (Zorak keeps jamming) That's good, Zorak. (keeps jamming) That's enough Zorak. (keeps jamming) Zorak! (jamming winds down & stops) My first guest (one more note interrupts Space Ghost) ... (taps cards) My first guest is a comedian. He is Bobcat Goldthwait, welcome him! (intro music plays & screen lowers; Zorak's face is on the screen instead of Bobcat)
Z:
(imitating Bobcat) Uh, hi, Space Ghost!
SG:
Aaah!
Z:
(back to normal voice) Your show is lame.
SG:
Are you done, Zorak?
Z:
I'm Bobcat, interview me.
SG:
You're not fooling anyone, Zorak, we know it's you.
Z:
Is this how you treat your guests?
SG:
Moltar!
Z:
Wait!

Moltar (M):
Sorry, man, boss's orders. (throws lever)
Z:
No! (zaps off screen; new image is infinite regression of Space Ghost's set)
SG:
Hey, it's me, watching me, watching me, watching me!
M:
Simpleton!
SG:
Are you lookin' at me? You must be lookin' at me. There's no one else here... (shoots at screen twice with power bands) (laughs) Alrighty!
M:
Gawd, loser! (throws switch again, Bobcat appears)
SG:
Hello, Bobcat, welcome to the show.
BG:
Hi, Space Ghost, how are you today?
SG:
I'm energized, just like a jittering woodchuck. You know, when they cling to the side of a tree, and their jaws move up and down and up and down over and over really fast gaining speed until its just a blur of vibrating gums and lips (mouth becomes a blur) ... Energized! (more subdued) And, how are you, Bobcat?
BG:
I'm livin' a dream, thanks a lot for having me back on the show.
SG:
We're certainly glad to have you back on the show.
BG:
Although I've never been on the show before, you ...
SG:
Of course you haven't.
BG:
You look pretty good.
SG:
That's because I've been lifting heavy objects.
BG:
Really? Yeah, well, it shows, you look pretty cut, you look pretty buff.
SG:
Well, aren't you sweet? I like you, Bobcat.
BG:
I like you, Space Ghost. I got a question; what's, what's your real name?
SG:
(pause) Uhmmm...
Z:
Tad Ghostal.
SG:
(glares at Zorak)
BG:
Tad Ghostal? Really? Stick with Space Ghost, much cooler.
SG:
(face gets red) Er, I agree.
BG:
Wouldn't really work on the babes too much in a bar...
SG:
I, I agree...
BG:
"Hi, I'm Tad"?
SG:
I realize that! (pause) Zorak's real name is Katy Did.
Z:
(looking surprised) What?
BG:
(laughs) Hi Zorak, how ya doin', pleasure to be on the show.
Z:
Oh no, the pleasure is all mine! (Pathetic Earthling! Your feeble words do not amuse me!)
BG:
Zorak? Do you eat your young?
Z:
(looks surprised) Uh, um...
SG:
Zorak eats anything, young, old, and then some! (Bobcat makes "Zorak" faces while Space Ghost talks) Say, Bobcat is a good name! Tell us, what's your secret identity?
BG:
My secret identity? Like, if you saw me in real life?
SG:
Uh...
Z:
Yeah, like if he saw you in real life.
BG:
Uhhhhh... I.. Joey Lawrence.
SG:
Get out! I've got your album!
BG:
Yeah, girl, you know it's true.
SG:
I hear Blossom hates you.
BG:
Tad!
SG:
Well?
BG:
See, it's an issue right now, and I feel strongly about it.
SG:
You don't look very strong.
BG:
Well, I may look small, but I'm pretty wiry.
SG:
Sorry.
BG:
Space Ghost, I've got a question for you, and this isn't, I'm not trying to be weird or anything, but... do you think I'm pretty?
SG:
(looks back blankly)
BG:
Just like another guy to a guy?
SG:
(pause) Ummm... Yes! I think you're a pretty man.
BG:
Thank you. I think you're kind of handsome too, Space Ghost. Although the locust, hmmm, I dunno.
Z:
(glares at him, "Psycho" music plays)
SG:
Hmmmm, I see what you mean... But on a serious note, Bobcat, how would you stop crime in America?
BG:
I think you wanna stop crime in America, you say a very special episode of "Blossom" where the entire cast gets ball-peen hammers in the knee caps...
SG:
Ooooh...
BG:
I promise you there'll be a half-hour of non-violent America. Because everybody'd be glued to the set. "Hey, they hit Joey Lawrence in the knee cap yet?"
SG:
You think that could work?
BG:
Well, no, not really, perhaps I, I need to loosen my pants.
SG:
Go ahead!
BG:
(looses pants, sound of pressure escaping) Oooo! Man, I feel better already! Wooo!
SG:
You should try spandex!
BG:
Yeah, you know, I'm actually one of the only superheroes that wears leisure suits.
SG:
Speaking of heroes, who are yours?
BG:
Wow! Um, geez, I dunno, I like all the greats, you know, Curly. I think that's what my coif actually looks like, what if Rutger Hauer and Curly Howard pounded out a baby... "Hey, Moe, I'm a replicant! Ne ne ne ne ne!" (makes Stooge hand & face gesture)
SG:
(laughs) (Replicants were the evil creation of Dr. Zin) (aloud) Ahem, let's see, where am I? (mumbles) Oh! Who is your arch enemy?
BG:
John Tesh.
SG:
The composer?
BG:
The whole man. John Tesh scares me.
SG:
Say, do you need any weapons?
BG:
Yeah, what size power band are you?
SG:
Colossal! Why?
BG:
Because I have a, I'm usually like a, a small power band, believe it or not, but I've been retaining a lot of fluids lately, so, probably like a medium power band.
SG:
How about a nice pleated skirt?
BG:
Boy, Space Ghost, you're really switching gears!
SG:
Hey, it's a 15 minute show! And, we have to take a break.
BG:
What's the locust's name again, I'm sorry?
SG:
Zorak.
BG:
Oh, yeah.
SG:
Zorak. I like saying "Zorak".
BG:
Zorak, play me something public domain.
Z:
(plays something from their vast easy listening library)
SG:
We'll be right back after this.
Z:
It appears we will be right back.
:INTERRUPT FEED
:START FEED
Z:
Uh, because no one can stop it, the show is back.
(Theme music plays in background)
BG:
Barney's going to make more kids snap than Bugs Bunny.
SG:
Uh huh.
BG:
A kid knows Bugs Bunny's joking around, kids think Barney's for real!
SG:
Uh huh.
BG:
"I love you", you don't love us, Barney, you don't even know us!
SG:
Okay! We're back with Bobcat Goldthwait! I understand that you have special powers.
BG:
Yes. I'm able to, uh, bend forks.
SG:
Wow!
BG:
But only at Denny's. Any other kind of forks I don't seem to be able to bend.
SG:
Wow, now, is this physically or mentally?
BG:
Um, I do it with my mind... but you gotta look away, really, for a little while.
SG:
When I said you were pretty, I meant you remind me of Judy Collins.
BG:
Judy Collins? (laughs) Wow, Space Ghost, man, crack a window, will ya?
SG:
I'd be violently sucked into space.
M:
Heh, then maybe people would tune in.
BG:
Well, I think Moltar's giving us the signal to wrap it up, huh, Space Ghost?
SG:
No, Bobcat, that's just his way of telling us to finish the interview. Join us for dinner after the show?
BG:
Thanks, I'd love to join you for dinner, but I don't know about eating with no gigantic locust. Don't they spit on their food first and then mulch it up and spit it back out?
Z:
That's regurgitational ingestion, flies do it, not locusts.
BG:
Yeah, well that, but you know, that's exactly how I eat, so, perhaps I will dine with you.
SG:
Alrighty! We'll meet you in the chamber after the show. Any parting words?
BG:
Space Ghost, I want to party with you.
SG:
You mean with a party cake and lemonade and paper hats?
BG:
Perhaps, perhaps.
SG:
Alrighty then! My next guests are Zorak's favorite band. Please welcome the Ramones!
BG:
Thanks, man.
(Ramones appear on screen)
Z:
Hey, Joey.
Joey Ramone (JR):
(waves)
SG:
Okay then. Identify yourselves, Ramones.
Johnny Ramone (JR):
Hi, I'm Johnny Ramone.
Marky Ramone (MR):
And I'm Marky Ramone.
JR:
And I'm Joey.
C. J. Ramone (CJR):
And I'm C.J.
Z:
And I'm Zorak Ramone.
M:
And I'm Moltar Ramone.
SG:
(to camera) They're not really Ramones. (to Ramones) Say, fellas, tell us about your new record.
JR:
"Acid Eaters", that's our latest album, it's a cover album of, uh, songs that were recorded in, um, generally around the 1967-68 period of time.
SG:
And it's just now coming out?
Ramones (R):
(all laugh)
SG:
Say, guys, on your third album, "Rocket Fuel", (starts gibbering) whoops, too many Cokes.
R:
(all laugh)
SG:
Ah ha haa! Hey! Tell me about your music.
CJR:
It's snappy.
JR:
It's always meant for rebellious kids.
SG:
Rebellious?
JR:
Uhhh, we're a bunch of punks.
SG:
Hmmm... Well, you just listen to me, you punks, I don't want any trouble from you. This is a good show. This is a clean show. This is a good clean show.
CJR:
You ever get a wedgie in tights? It's not pleasant. (laughs)
SG:
Uhhh...
BG:
(on control room monitor, with Locust text from before, to Moltar) This is going as well as the Letterman-Madonna interview.
M:
Yup.
SG:
Allll right then, you punks, you're musicians, make something up for me.
MR:
Well, how about: "way, we-we-way, wah wah-wah-wah-wah-wah-wah, way way way way way way-we-way."
SG:
"Way way way"; that's catchy!
JR:
It was subliminal.
MR:
That was, that was the instrumental part.
SG:
Ah!. Uh, do the word part.
MR:
How about: "Space Ghost, Space Ghost, you're the most, from coast to coast..."
SG:
Listen, we have to go. Bobcat invited me to a party, with a party cake and lemonade and paper hats, and you can't come because you're punks and punks don't go to parties. Hey, you guys got a cake!
MR:
It's a nice chocolate vanilla.
JR:
There's plates right there...
SG:
Hey! Where'd you guys get that cake?
(All Ramones are "wearing" paper hats)
MR:
You want a piece of this?
CJR:
Yeah.
SG:
That's my party cake! Where did you guys get my party cake? Who gave them my party cake? I want my party cake! That was specifically definitely for Bobcat and me! Zorak! Did you give them my party cake?
Z:
(with paper hat on & crumbs falling out of mouth) Uh, what party cake?
M:
(with paper hat & cake) Mmmm, chocolate party cake.
(Credits roll. Ghost Planet in credits is wearing a party hat)
MR:
"Way, we-we-way, wah wah-wah-wah-wah-wah-wah, way way way way way way-we-way. (skip) we-way. (skip) we-way (skip) we-way." (fade out)
