The Great Space Coaster is a children's television show that ran from 1981 through 1986. The series was directed by Dick Feldman, and distributed by Sunbow Productions.

In "I Take Thee Quagmire", Peter Griffin remembers the kickass time he had on the magical ride of the space coaster. He is then seen picking up five children and traveling through the galaxy to take on the journey while the theme song plays. Seven years later, Peter has found himself lost with four older children who have outgrown their clothes. While Peter is trying to read a map, Ricky, one of the "children", tries cheering himself up by singing the theme song. He is immediately silenced by Peter, who tells him to shut up unless he knows a way to get back home.


Peter: Well, we are officially lost.

Ricky: ...On the great space coas—

Peter: Shut up Ricky, just shut up right now! Unless the next words out of your mouth are directions back to the fish skeleton I'm gonna punch you right in the stomach!
