I recently ran into something that messed me up as a young child (6? 7?) and seeing how it was Christmas-related and it’s December now, I’d like to share it to you guys.
It’s Bizarro Santa from Space Ghost Coast to Coast.
See, I was a huge fan of C2C, Zorak was the best, tied with Space Ghost, but this episode I’m not even sure what happened in it except there was Santa Claus and he was “ho ho ho”ing, and suddenly everything went dark as an eye grew from him and he mutated into his “true” form, an Eldritch thing dubbed “Bizarro Santa”.
Bloody hell. This was on Cartoon Network, mind you, the show had yet to move to Adult Swim. Thankfully I repressed it in time for the real Santa to deliver my presents, as I remember seeing it around the holiday season.
The episode in question’s called “Girl Hair“. Check it out.
Obviously an homage to “The Thing”.
That part made me laugh too hard when I first saw in 2016. I love that show. Also, “DAVID! YOU’RE BRINGING ME DOWN, MAN!”
