Episode Premise: One of the classics of the SGC2C series, the bulk of this episode involves Space Ghost tending to sea monkeys, and one sea monkey in particular by the name of Banjo. Thanks to Space Ghost's care (and a special super vitamin or two), Banjo grows to enormous proportions over the course of 11 minutes. In the meantime, Zorak spends time testing spells from his new book The Joy of Incantations, and one in particular for mind control that goes "Lombaak ecree oplom ah-plee ozona ah-ah". Also of note in the episode, Zorak is a mantis. Which is actaully right, as opposed to the first 5 episodes where they referred to him as a locust. The ending of the episode is the most often-quoted moment in series history.
Why do we always hurt the ones we love? Why Banjo? Why?! Banjo! Banjo! Banjooooo!
Rest in peace, Banjo.
