Luxuria Music's "The Millionaire"
visits with
Space Ghost's twin brother, Chad

The late, lamented Luxuria Music           Watch this segment in RealVideo!

Luxuria Music sadly is no more (it was bought and shut down by media giant Clear Channel Communications), but that's no reason for this tribute to "The Millionaire" (whipped up by the TTM webmaster) to go to waste.

The Millionaire is one of Luxuria's creators, and a member of the hip combo, "Combustible Edison".

I was put onto this unique web site by another former Luxuria host, Jack Diamond, who plays a part in a story on the Fantastic Theater page.

Bulletin, 11/5/2002: LuxuriaMusic is making a comeback.


(Opening theme & titles)

(Space Ghost starts to inviso in)

Moltar: Game on, here's the ghost.

Chad Ghostal: (inviso image now has a beard; inviso in completes) Not exactly, Daddy-O! (evil laugh)

Zorak: Space Ghost's evil twin brother Chad?!

Moltar: But we thought you were...(monitor shows text:)


     Space Ghost starts to inviso in
Chad Ghostal: The asylum? Don't you wish! I blew that popsicle stand to make the scene here, baby. So dig it, kids, Chad Ghostal's takin' over!

Zorak: But why take this show over, it stinks!

Chad Ghostal: Not when I'm on it! TV is power, baby, sexy power! Hi, girls! (cat growl)

Zorak: But, what about Space Ghost?

Chad Ghostal: Oh, don't worry about the Tadpole, he's gone, man. Real gone!

Zorak: You mean... you destroyed Space Ghost?

Chad Ghostal: Let's just say my brother Tad won't be with us tonight.Ya dig?

     Hi, girls! (cat growl)
(dramatic sting music) (evil laugh)

Zorak: I dig! (evil laugh)

Moltar: I dig! (evil laugh)

Chad Ghostal: Tonight we do things my way, cats. No 70's sitcom rejects, no MTV snot-noses, we're gonna wig out and get evil tonight, baby. (big band music in background) My guests tonight are The Millionaire from the sharp music combo Combustible Edison. And direct from Vegas, legendary band leader hepcat Sam Butera. (applause in background) Pow pow pow, go cats, go!

Audience: (applause)

Chad Ghostal: (invisos to desk) Okay, cats and kittens, simmer down. I want you all to meet the real hepcat, the man, the myth...

     Pow pow pow, go cats, go!
The Millionaire: (on monitor as it lowers) I am The Millionaire, from the pop combo Combustible Edison.

Chad Ghostal: Hmmm, Millionaire...

The Millionaire: (winks, with cash register sound)

Zorak: He looks like a Batman villain.

Chad Ghostal: Man, your dry goods are murder! Clue me in on the threads.

The Millionaire: Well, this is a European cut three button...

Zorak: Louie the Lilac!

Moltar: The Joker.

     The Millionaire acknowledges his wealth
Zorak: Louie the Lilac!

Moltar: Joker!

Zorak: Ten bucks says Louie the Lilac.

Moltar: You're on.

The Millionaire: ... and matching pocket square. I don't like anything in my outfit to be square, you know what I'm saying. (laughs)

Chad Ghostal: Ow! I'm wise! So, who inspires The Millionaire's style?

The Millionaire: My sense of style is kinda influenced by Gomez Addams and the Joker. (buzz!)

Zorak: (in Batmantis costume) What's this? Has Batmantis been gypped out of ten bucks?

     Louie the Lilac!
Chad Ghostal: Zorak?

Zorak: What?

Chad Ghostal: Don't be a bore.

Zorak: Sorry. Uh, Taddy-O?

Moltar: (chuckles)

Chad Ghostal: So, Millionaire, for the benefit of my brother's icky sidekicks, what is 'hip'?

The Millionaire: Don't ask me, I'm only a mere mortal.

Chad Ghostal: Deaf lip, my man. Well then, what's not hip?

     Don't be a bore.
The Millionaire: Uh, Dockers. That's one thing.

Zorak: And Space Ghost!

The Millionaire: (laughs) Really, you don't say.

Chad Ghostal: My brother's a total Clyde, baby. Uptight!

The Millionaire: That's unfortunate.

Chad Ghostal: He's a drag. But I took care of him, in style!

Zorak: Show us the body!

Moltar: Is he.. still in one piece?

     The Millionaire with Chad Ghostal
Chad Ghostal: (evil laugh)

Zorak: (stares wide-eyed)

The Millionaire: So, do the buttons on your gauntlet do something entirely different than his, I've always wondered about that.

Chad Ghostal: Oh, you know it, Dad.

The Millionaire: What do yours do?

Chad Ghostal: Well, let me clue ya. I've got an atomic drink mixer...(presses power band button, makes a blender sound) An ultra-deluxe chick magnet (presses another button, makes sound of girls sighing)

The Millionaire: One of them must dim the lights on your chamber.

     Well, let me clue ya.
Chad Ghostal: Oh, yeah, make-out party tonight! (presses another button, lights dim except for spot on Chad)

The Millionaire: That's a good one.

Chad Ghostal: You know it, baby. (does cat growl sound) (sound of girls sighing again) (lights return to normal) So, any last words of advice for our lonely little viewers?

The Millionaire: Stay fabulous, beautiful people. Have faith, don't let the man beat you down.

Chad Ghostal: Awright! Listen, my main queen Elvira's throwin' a blast tonight, wanna swing by?

The Millionaire: Beautiful.

Chad Ghostal: Thanks for droppin' by, Millionaire. See you tonight.

The Millionaire: Thank you, Chad. (fades from monitor)

Chad Ghostal: Swanky fool! Tonight your millions shall be mine! (evil laugh, sound of slot machine paying off)

Zorak: Now will you tell us what you did with Space Ghost?

Chad Ghostal: You know, Zorak, curiosity killed the uncool cat. You dig?

Zorak: Hey, don't blame me! Blame it, on the bossa nova! (starts playing bossa nova music on his keyboard)

Moltar: (dances) Da da da da daaa, da!

Chad Ghostal: (dances) (does wolf howl), baby!! Take five, kids. Catch you on the flip side!

     (dances)(does wolf howl), baby!!
