Space Ghost is an alien superhero and the main title character of the Space Ghost animated franchise. His voice was originated by Gary Owens.

Character description

Space Ghost's costume consists of white spandex bodysuit and a wispy yellow cape. He wears a black mask, which has white pupils and is connected to his red and black emblem. He also has wrist bands that give him an assortment of energy-based powers, and a belt that grants him invisibility. He also has the ability to fly and perform feats with his super strength. His main mode of transportation is a spacecraft known as the Phantom Cruiser.

In his debut series, Space Ghost is an intergalactic crime fighter from the Ghost Planet. He fought the forces of evil with his sidekicks Jan, Jace, and their pet monkey Blip.

In Space Ghost Coast to Coast, he retired from his job and became the host of his own talk show. Though he is originally based on the classic superhero archetype, he is shown to be childish, egotistical, rude, and very petty at times. He genuinely wants to put on the best talk show he can, but his failings tend to get the better of him. He also has little regard for the well-being of others, which in return led to constant befuddling with his guests and crew. When interviewing guests, he often interrupts in-between to ask irreverent questions.

Space Ghost Sells Out

Space Ghost appears on the November 15, 1998 episode of Donny & Marie, to promote his real album Space Ghost's Surf & Turf. When asked by Donny Osmond if he had a favorite interview, Space Ghost coldly responded it wasn't him. At the end of the interview, Space Ghost sings "Something That Rhymes With Bones," with backing from Donny and Marie. The whole studio audience then got a CD underneath their chairs.

In the Teen Titans Go! episode "Sidekick," Space Ghost is a member of DCUbook (a parody of Facebook), who has posted the message, "BOO."
