Space Ghost is an animated science fiction television series created by Alex Toth and produced by Hanna-Barbera Studios. The series first aired on CBS from September 10, 1966, to September 7, 1968 as a part of Space Ghost and Dino Boy.

Space Ghost and Dino Boy was composed of two unrelated segments: Space Ghost, depicting the adventures of a heroic hero in outer space, and Dino Boy in the Lost Valley, centering around a young boy stranded in an unknown prehistoric valley. Each episode contained one segment of Dino Boy sandwiched between two segments of Space Ghost, except for the final two episodes which featured three Space Ghost segments each.

Space Ghost segments appeared in reruns on Cartoon Network from 1992-2000. The series was shown from 1997-2000 on Cartoon Network's Toonami as part of Cartoon Roulette. In 2000, the series began airing on Cartoon Network's sister channel Boomerang.

Overview

Space Ghost, along with teenaged sidekicks Jan and Jace and their monkey Blip, fight villains in outer space. Usually Space Ghost's sidekicks would get captured or trapped by the villains and Space Ghost would have to defeat the villains and save the day. His villains included Zorak, Brak and his brother Sisto, Creature King, Black Widow (aka Spider Woman), Lokar, Moltar, and Metallus.

Space Ghost has the powers of invisibility, flight, a force field, an x-ray like visio penatron beam that comes from his mask, and the ability to project any kind of energy from his wristbrands. He has occasionally displayed super strength, which may be connected to his bands.
