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.

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.

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 is incredibly committed 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 sometimes unaware of his surroundings. Space Ghost also shows pride in himself, but shows no care for Zorak and Moltar, a problem that frequiently causes friction between his crew and the guests he interviews.

Yeah, Whatever

In Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Space Ghost retired from his superhero career and became the host of his own talk show. Although he is absolutely inadequate in his job, Space Ghost 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. He usually gets interrupted by Moltar and Zorak, and mostly asks irrelevent questions in interviews with his guests.

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."
