Space Ghost is a series of scifi-fantasy/action adventure segments of Space Ghost & Dino Boy, produced by Hanna-Barbera (H-B) for CBS' Saturday morning children's programming. It ran from 1966 to 1967, airing 20 episodes. In 1981, it was revived for a further 22 episodes as segments of Space Stars on NBC.
A space law enforcement officer with a superhero-like name and uniform called Space Ghost battles supervillains across the galaxy. In his quest to uphold the law, he is joined by cadet fraternal twins, Jan and Jace, and their pet monkey pet, Blip.
From 2004 to 2008, Williams Street produced an adult spin-off and spoof for Cartoon Network (and later Adult Swim), where Space Ghost had retired and became a talk show host. It also spawned its own spin-offs, Cartoon Planet and The Brak Show.
The score was composed by Ted Nichols, who was credited as musical director.
