INTRODUCTION TO SPACE GHOST

1.1 Who is Space Ghost?
Space Ghost (1966)/Space Ghost (1981)

Space Ghost is a superhero created by Alex Toth for a Hanna-Barbera cartoon show that ran on CBS from 1966-1968. Based on the Ghost Planet, Space Ghost is an interstellar police officer.

1.2 What does Space Ghost's costume look like?

Space Ghost's costume is a white bodysuit, black hood, yellow cape, belt with red buckle, silhouette of hood on red triangle on chest, and red wristbands with yellow buttons.

1.3 What are Space Ghost's super powers?

Space Ghost's powers come directly from his costume and power bands. These are the powers of the costume and power bands that I have seen in the original episodes.

Costume: belt which has "inviso button" that renders him invisible and also generates a protective force field around him, communicator located in silhouette on chest, viso penetron beam (from eyes), the power of flight, the ability to survive underwater, and protection from outer space. Space Ghost also has the power of teleportation. By concentrating and focusing all of his will Space Ghost can change each atom of his being to pure thought and energy and teleport to another location and reassemble himself.

Power Bands: reversing force ray, hypno force will power, destroyer ray, force ray, super power, destructo ray, pile driver ray, energy force, stun ray, heat force, megaton force, magna ray, heat ray, freeze ray, freeze force, heat intensifier ray, sonic vibro ray, whip ray, frost ray, freeze field, scatter ray, power rays, anti-matter ray, electro shock ray, battering ram ray, locking ray, hammer ray, megatron ray, energy ray, magnetic ray, laser beam, ice force field, force shield, force field, viso wall, super speed, hyperspeed, and the ability to create a time warp. These are combined powers from the power bands: heat and energy ray, force field and energy power, stun ray and force energy power, raising the power to 5 over 5.

1.4 How does Space Ghost get around?
Space Ghost either uses his super powers from the costume to fly or he uses his spaceship "The Phantom Cruiser/Ghost Ship". Space Ghost is able to fly faster than the "Phantom Cruiser/Ghost Ship" with just his costume and power bands. "The Phantom Cruiser/Ghost Ship" is capable or reaching hyperspeeds. "The Phantom Cruiser/Ghost Ship" has several weapons: freeze mist, inviso power, heat ray, cold ray, stun ray, electro shock force field, and energy force. "The Phantom Cruiser/Ghost Ship" is also able to track a wide variety of frequencies through space, it has a "revitalizer" unit to repair damages, and is equipped with a radionic "interference" screen to filter out energy being directed at the ship's occupants. "The Phantom Cruiser/Ghost Ship" is also equipped with heat seeking missiles.

1.5 Where is Space Ghost's home?

It is assumed that Space Ghost's original home world was Earth. Space Ghost now lives on the Ghost Planet. The Ghost Planet is located between Earth and the rest of Space Ghost's patrol sector. The Ghost Planet Headquarters has living quarters, a vast communication and sensor room, a storage facility, and a hangar for the Phantom Cruiser. The Ghost Planet Headquarters has a defensive force shield and generates power from the interior of the planet.

1.6 What does Space Ghost look like without his mask on?

I have found out that Alex Toth drew these pictures of Space Ghost without his mask on. These pictures are taken from a model sheet that he drew while designing Space Ghost. These pictures can be found in Toon Magazine Volume 1, Number 3, 1994. This issue also has pictures of early designs of Space Ghost. One included Space Ghost with a gun and holster and no power bands.
(Thanks to Todd Marsh for this information.)

1.7 Why should I be interested in Space Ghost?

Like any popular super hero, Space Ghost has withstood the test of time. He has great powers, great allies, great villains, and a great ship. This makes for interesting stories and a great time.

SPACE GHOST'S HISTORY

2.1 What is Space Ghost's origin?

I have researched through books, comics, and all the TV cartoon shows and I cannot find any indication of Space Ghost's origin. One book speculated that he was either a scientist who invented this great costume and power bands, or he was given the costume by the galactic patrol. In Space Ghost # 1 1967, Space Ghost mentions his old teacher teaching him the mysteries of the universe.

Watch Opening for Space Ghost

4.2 When did the show premiere and how long did it last?

Saturday morning schedule for 1966
1966 CBS Advertisement for Saturday Morning
Saturday morning schedule for 1967

4.3 How many original episodes of Space Ghost were there?

There were 42 original episodes of Space Ghost.

Some interesting information from Bob about the 1967 season.

There are indeed only 18 episodes of Dino Boy - not 21 - which makes sense because there were only 36 original Space Ghost cartoons (18 x 2) created for the 1966 season.

The total number of Space Ghost episodes increased to 42 in the fall of 1967 when CBS asked Hanna-Barbera to produce a special six-part episode to kick off the new 1967 Saturday morning line-up. This would be the famous six-part "Council of Doom" storyline, which included guest appearances by Mightor, Moby Dick, the Herculoids and Shazzan.

It was a well thought out cross-promotion tactic. CBS used the special six-part Space Ghost cartoon to introduce viewers to the newer (and unfamiliar) Hanna-Barbera superheroes that were set to debut that day as part of CBS' new Saturday morning schedule, to get the viewers "hooked," and make them want to tune in to sample the new shows.

In this special Space Ghost six-parter, the first three episodes: 1.) "The Meeting", 2.) "Clutches of the Creature King" and 3.) "The Deadly Trap" aired the first week of the new 1967 season. On that day, there was no Dino Boy cartoon.

The concluding episodes: 4.) "The Molten Monsters of Moltar", 5.) "Two Faces of Doom" and 6.) "The Final Encounter" aired the second week of the new 1967 season. Again, there was no Dino Boy cartoon.

From the third week of the 1967 season on, CBS returned once again to reruns of the 1966 cartoons. And that's why the final, total number of Space Ghost episodes is 42, while the total number of Dino Boy cartoons is 18.

4.4 What were the names of the Space Ghost episodes and can we have a synopsis of each?

Space Ghost agrees to return her to Cyba-3 in the Flarex Galaxy.

Onar tells of how the Sorceress arrived on the planet in space debris and used the planet's technology to build her fortress and weapons. Jan tells Space Ghost and Jace everything she knows about the Sorceress. The mark on her hand did not kill her because it was only a hypnotic device.

    Chapter Six-Satanari's Stronghold
    Queen Satanari finds her stronghold just as she left it. The Cybans did not destroy her arsenal. Her mountain creature army is still there working on weapons. The mountain creatures had continued to build the Spidrex. Queen Satanari inspected the Spidrex and was very pleased. The Phantom Cruiser arrives and is fired upon by lasers.
