The Great Space Coaster

Holy shit!


Everything is on You Tube! I used to watch this show when I was in kindergarten. Or to be specific, I used to watch this intro because I really liked the song.

My mom always dropped me off at school early in the morning so she could get to work on time and so I'd play in the yard. But I'd often go into the tv room and watch the opening of The Great Space Coaster. I know I was in kindergarten because of the specific play yard (for kindergarteners) I would come in from at school to watch.

I've had a vague recollection of this song since my childhood. "On the great space coaster, get on board! On the great space coaster, we'll explore..."

I recently did a search for it because, surely, I hadn't made it up. Someone else out there must know about it. And there it was and now I can hear it again.

Blew my freakin mind hearing this and watching the graphics after so long.


  • It's amazing what you find on the internet these days.

    I don't remember ever seeing that cartoon, or hearing that song. My kids must've been into other things at that time. Or it was during a period when I worked and they went to daycare or something.

  • I totally remember the song - Great Space Coaster, Off We Go!!! so either this was on and you (mom/mil) didn't notice, or this was one of those shows that was on at 5am on Saturday when I would wake up early - like that one with Gary Gnu who did the news (no guhnews is good guhnews). I don't remember what that was at all. Nor, actually, do I remember what the Great Space Coaster was actually about - just the opening song.

    Oh, BTW I got the present you two sent to us. It was chock full o'wonderful stuff I'm so happy! I particularly love the swaddling blanket - it's a neat idea, but we'll see how practical it is once Teddy is here. You can come out now Teddy!

  • Ladies,

    Actually The Great Space Coaster was predominantly a live-action show. If you notice at the end of the intro, the coaster and it's inhabitants go from cartoon to real.

    I'm pretty sure this was on during the week, my visceral Great Space Coaster and TV room at Pinecrest elementary connection is too strong.

    And I'm also fairly sure Gary Gnu was part of the same show.

    Glad you liked the the presies!

  • Did you just get a comment from a viral site as well? Is that what's deleted above? I just had to do that myself. I figured it would spider over here. That sucks.

  • No, that's from weeks ago. Just someone trying to drive traffic to their blog.
