    Thought it was a pretty good episode.

    Quagmire's new house was awesome.

    yeah, definitely a good ep.

    i almost fell off the bed when they did the "better off dead" thing. plus brian's "examination" of the mom's breasts was great ... "i'm sorry...what?"

    I'm still not sure why the PTC is worried about this show -- "Wheel of Fortune" with the shopping-for-ceramic-dalmatians element would confuse any kids tuning in, and then "The Great Space Coaster" would completely baffle and bewilder them.

    But, hey, I like the nostalgia. :D

    From http://tgscoaster.com/theshow/theshow.html:

    The Great Space Coaster was a daily half-hour children's series combining live action, music, puppets and animations in a fast-paced and entertaining format. Interaction among three talented young people: Roy, Francine, Danny and ten wacky puppets characters (Baxter, Goriddle Gorilla, Edison The Elephant, Knock Knock The Woodpecker, Gary Gnu, M.T. Promises, Baffle and The Huggles Fluffy, Puffy and Scuffy) with original songs, games, travel and reading adventures provides a multi-faceted program with a sound educational foundation that children choose to watch for entertainment.

    Or, if you prefer a little less self-congratulation, from http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=471206:

    Humans Francine ("Fran" to her friends), Roy and Danny mingled with puppets big and small to teach kids lessons about life and the joy of discovery. Among the non-human cast were excitable Goriddle Gorilla, clown looking Baxter, Edison Elephant, prissy and daffy bird Knock-Knock, and the mean M.T. Promises. The Huggles ("What's snappening?") joined the cast later in the show's run, but the real star was a green, hairy fellow named Gary Gnu (accent on the "G"). Gary wasn't any cuter or cuddlier than his fellow puppets, but he got to host the show's news segment, giving birth to the unforgettable catchphrase, "NO g-news is GOOD g-news, with Gary...Gaaa-nu." The show's format featured stories, songs (many performed as music videos by the human stars), skits, and short films viewed on Roy's hand-held magic screen. Another regular feature was Speed Reader, who, according to his theme song, could do a handstand and read everything on the newsstand. Occasionally, celebrities like Sugar Ray Leonard and Sally Struthers stopped by to visit.

    The scene in FG was a precise re-creation of the animated opening credits and theme song, with Peter playing the role of Baxter, who pilots the titular Coaster through a fanciful depiction of space to pick up the cast members, teaching children a valuable lesson about taking rides from creepy, giant-headed strangers dressed as clowns.

    The show ran from 1981 to 1986. On PBS stations, if I'm not mistaken. And Francine was kinda hot.

    I had to explain the Better Off Dead reference to my friend who's 3 years older than me. She's never seen the movie!
