DC Comics has released a preview of today’s Hanna Barbera crossover Green Lantern/Space Ghost Annual #1, which we have for you here…

Trapped in a strange rift in time, Green Lantern and Space Ghost are forced to battle a variety of foes—and each other!

CHiPS starring Dax Shepard and Michael Peña releases a slew of new clips

  • JoBlo
So I've never seen CHiPS, the famous cop-show starring Erik Estrada that the upcoming comedy is based off of. In fact, if it weren't for growing up with Space Ghost: Coast To Coast and Moltar's love of the show, I probably would've never heard of it. Written, directed, and starring Dax Shepard, and co-starring Michael Pena in the Estrada role, the new buddy-cop movie seems to... Read More...

Trailer for DC's Injustice 2 reveals Dr. Fate as playable character

  • JoBlo
I've always been more of a DC guy than a Marvel guy, even if in actuality they are both awesome and have their own merits. I just can't help my basic human tribalism, as I grew up with Superfriends reruns that'd play late at night after Space Ghost: Coast To Coast, then later getting into Batman: Tas, and Justice League Unlimited after that. So I can't help but be... Read More...

New trailer released for Duck Tales reboot starring David Tennant, A-woo-oo!

  • JoBlo
I have a confession to make: I never really watched Duck Tales. I was too young when it first aired, and by the time I would have been watching Saturday Morning reruns, I was already into adult cartoons like The Simpsons, Beavis And Butt-head, Space Ghost: Coast To Coast, etc. So I never really got the appeal of it. This is all to say that there's a new reboot coming out for Disney Xd, and as... Read More...

Adult Swim honors memory of 'Space Ghost' actor, posts series online for free
As we reported yesterday, Space Ghost Coast to Coast and Aqua Teen Hunger Force voice actor and animator C. Martin Croker passed away on Sunday at age 54. Now Adult Swim has decided to honor his memory in the best way they know how. The broadcaster announced on Twitter that they have posted virtually every episode of Space Ghost online and without the normal pay log in. This is great news for anyone who ever loved the show as well as those who have yet to discover it.  This is an extra special treat considering DVDs for the series are out of print and hard to come by.   To check them out, click on this link. Zorak and Moltar would have wanted it that way.

Watch Dozens of ‘Space Ghost: Coast to Coast’ Episodes For Free In Honor of C. Martin Croker

Before Cartoon Network created their late night programming block called Adult Swim, they already realized that grown ups liked staying up late and watching more mature animated programming. One of the shows that Cartoon Network produced for the late night hours was Space Ghost: Coast to Coast. The animated talk show parody featured the Hanna-Barbera […]

'Space Ghost' voice and animator C. Martin Croker dead at 54
C. Martin Croker, one of the most important voices and animators on Adult Swim, passed away on Sunday. He was just 54. Croker was a name you might not have known, but you knew his work as the voice behind Zorak and Moltar on Space Ghost Coast to Coast. Additionally, he voiced Dr. Weird, Steve and other characters on the long-running Aqua Teen Hunger Force. But Croker was more than that. He also served as an animator for both shows. Adult Swim honored his memory on Twitter writing “R.I.P. C. Martin Croker.” They also re-ran a classic episode of Space Ghost that featured Ashley Judd and Dr. Timothy Leary. Check out some of Croker’s work from Sgctc…

No! C. Martin Croker animator and voice actor on Space Ghost-to-Ghost dies

  • JoBlo
There are no words that can express how I'm feeling right now. While we've all felt our share of losses this year, this one, to me, hit the hardest. By far. Space Ghost: Coast-to-coast is not only my favorite cartoon show, but it also helped shape me into the person that I am today. The premise is simple: an out-of-work and out of touch superhero (Space Ghost) gets his own talk show in space, forcing two of his... Read More...

DC launching new Hanna-Barbera titles including Scooby-Doo, Johnny Quest and The Flintstones

It looks like it’s not just its superhero titles that DC Entertainment is looking to reboot, with Entertainment Weekly revealing that the publisher is set to launch a new line of comics based upon classic Hanna-Barbera characters – including Scooby-Doo, Johnny Quest, Wacky Races, Space Ghost and The Flintstones – which will “revitalize them for a new age”.

“From a personal standpoint, I was always a fan of the old Hanna-Barbera characters, having grown up on them,” states Dan Didio, co-publisher of DC Entertainment. “I think what you find right now is there’s so much material on pop culture, and these characters resonate with so much of our fanbase. It was so fun to go out and look at them, but not just bring back versions that existed 40, 50 years ago and really look at it the way of saying, if these characters were created and interpreted today, how would they exist?

DC Entertainment to Publish Comics Based on Popular Hanna-Barbera Characters

Pajamas and a big bowl of sugary cereal is how many of us remember watching our favorite Saturday morning cartoons as kids. Beginning in May, DC Entertainment plans to give old fans and new the chance to relive (and extend) their childhoods with a new, modern lineup of comics based on some of Hanna-Barbera’s most popular cartoon characters, but reimagined in a fresh and contemporary fashion.

The initial lineup includes:

Scooby Apocalypse – Featuring character designs by veteran artist Jim Lee and an origin story by Jim Lee and Keith Giffen (Justice League 3001), artist Howard Porter (Superman) will provide his own unique take on Freddie, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo. “Those meddling kids” and their Mystery Machine are at the center of a well-meaning experiment gone wrong and they’ll need to bring all of their mystery solving skills to bear (along with plenty of Scooby Snacks), to find a

Scooby-Doo, Space Ghost, Flintstones Get Comic Reboots; Monetization of Nostalgia Remains Impossible to Stop

  • Vulture
In a move that feels both surprising and strangely overdue, DC Entertainment is going to release a line of comics that give new life to classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon properties, including Scooby-Doo, the Flintstones, Jonny Quest, Space Ghost, and Wacky Races. In an interview over at Entertainment Weekly, DC co-publisher Dan Didio said the mass reboot's goal is to "not just bring back versions that existed 40, 50 years ago and really look at it the way of saying, if these characters were created and interpreted today, how would they exist?" Not much is known about the content of the comics, but some of their titles suggest new slants on old concepts: Future Quest, Wacky Raceland, and, most eyebrow-raising of all, Scooby Apocalypse. And speaking of the apocalypse: A designer from Mad Max: Fury Road consulted on Wacky Raceland! The new slate is scheduled to launch in May and will feature

Top 5 TV: Hello, 'Fear the Walking Dead,' Goodbye 'Aqua Teen Hunger Force'

Top 5 TV: Hello, 'Fear the Walking Dead,' Goodbye 'Aqua Teen Hunger Force'
Last night, Adult Swim's longest-running series aired its final episode, just a few hours after the debut of a show inspired by cable's most popular drama. That's how it's been with television this year: Each "welcome" alternates with yet another "we'll be seeing ya" ride off into the sunset. We barely have time to process our feelings about the departure of an old friend before we have to meet the new neighbors.

So in this installment of Rolling Stone's weekly appreciation of TV's best and most-talked-about, we'll be saying some more hellos,

Sdcc 2015: Highlights and Lowlights of the Con

Each year, pop culture fans from around the world make their way to San Diego Comic-Con to bask in the glow of the largest convention of its kind, a singular experience that brings well over 100,000 people together to celebrate comics, film, TV, gaming, and much more. Most attendees differ in their primary interests, but one doesn’t make the trek to Sdcc without being a fan of something, and that shared enthusiasm is a big part of what brings people back again and again. This year, SoS’s Elizabeth Rico and Whitney McIntosh joined TV Editor Kate Kulzick at the Con.

Kate Kulzick: Another Sdcc has come and gone and finally, a week after it ended, I’ve recovered. It was an exhausting experience for me this year, and this was my fourth year attending—how was it for you guys? This was your first times, right?

Elizabeth Rico: Oh good,
