Space Ghost Coast to Coast
Andy Merrill as Space Ghost.
Space Ghost is a superhero and the main title character of the Space Ghost animated franchise. He is known for being a stoic intergalactic crimefighter, and a goofy talk show host in Space Ghost Coast to Coast. His voice was originated by Gary Owens.
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.
Space Ghost is seen as a model superhero who, though aloof at times, does anything to protect his loved ones. A caring and courageous individual, the hero shows comitment to serving justice, no matter what he has to do. At the end of his missions, Space Ghost would remain uncertain if his most recent foe has even survived their last encounter or not.
In Space Ghost Coast to Coast, his personality is shown to be the very opposite of what it originally was. He is characterized as childish, egotistical, rude, very petty at times, and incredibly stupid in some occasions. The series' version of Space Ghost shows pride in himself, but shows no care for Zorak and Moltar, a problem that frequiently causes friction between him and his crew due to their formal rivalry.

Coast to Coast
In Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Space Ghost retired from his superhero career and became the host of his own talk show. He interviews with various Earth celeberties throughout the series, whom Space Ghost believes to be fellow superheroes. Although, Space Ghost genuinely wants to put on the best talk show he can, the times spent between him and his guests turn out to be very surreal due to Space Ghost's questionable methods as a host. In addition to his general incompetence, he also has little regard for the well-being of others, which in return led to constant befuddling with him and his crew.

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."

In popular culture
- In The Fairly OddParents TV movie Channel Chasers, Timmy, Cosmo, and Wanda are sent into a parody of Space Ghost called Space Spectre. The titular Space Spectre is nowhere to be seen, aside from his face being used as a logo on the Phantom Cruiser-type spaceship and Timmy, Wanda, and Cosmo's uniforms. Timmy, Wanda, and Cosmo are parodies of Space Ghost's sidekicks, Jace, Jan, and Blip, respectively. Timmy calls his armband a ghost gauntlet.
- In the Family Guy episode "The Father, the Son, and the Holy Fonz," Peter's father baptizes Stewie, and says, "The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost," with Peter then adding Space Ghost.
- In Kevin Smith's book My Boring-Ass Life, he mentions meeting the "voice" of Space Ghost at Wizard Con 2005, referring to George Lowe, instead of Gary Owens.
