The Ultimate Saturday Morning Cartoon Show!
7 December 2004 | by (Durham,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Lets not even mention his status as a talk show host........

Lets focus on the popular Hanna-Barbera cartoon starring the guardian of the spaceways;the intergalactic crime fighter,and the hero who stands for truth,justice and peace throughout the universe,the baddest superhero of the galaxy.......SPACE GHOST

This was one classic piece of breathtaking animation that was brilliantly designed and astoundingly executed to perfection with some of the stories that maybe limited on character development,but in other words this was a show that packed with breathtaking action and excitement throughout and with it some cliffhanging adventure at its finest hour. What more can I say about a intergalactic superhero who files through the skies in his phantom cruiser spaceship along side his companions Jan and Jayce and space monkey Blimp defending and protecting the galaxy from evildoers and other creatures from hostile planets. In other situations as well,Space Ghost also had to risk life and limb in some of the episodes where his companions had to saved from a certain fate from some diabolical villain. Some of the stories were just pure enjoyment,but also some of it was a bit campy since some of the episodes ran within an eight minute time-frame,but still you got your viewings worth when this show came on,and it saw,it delivered the goods and it kicked butt. Space Ghost was the MAN!!!!

However,this show had some of the most diabolical villains ever devised and there were way out there too,especially with the designs created by the master Alex Toth,the head honcho of the Hanna-Barbera superhero shows,and was behind the scenes for Hanna-Barbera's first ever action-adventure series,"Jonny Quest",and so many more,who came up with the creation of Space Ghost. To make this work,they also had the lucky stars with them when they got Gary Owens of "Laugh-In",and once a popular DJ,for the voice of Space Ghost and from there that was only one thing that could be said when they casted Owens in the title role: CLASSIC. Not to mention Tim "Jonny Quest" Matheson as the voice for Jayce. As far as the villains were concerned,this show had them and these were some of the greatest ever devised where as Space Ghost's deadliest enemies were "Cyclo","Brak","Metallus","Black Widow",along with "The Creature King",and "Lurker",not to mention his worst enemy,the always unpredictable and unexpected "Zorak". The pinnacle of the series and probably the best installments of the Space Ghost shows is a multi-part episode untitled,"The Council of Doom" where our hero goes up against some of his deadliest foes in a six-part episode which is as exciting as it gets. This was one cliffhanger of the series where Space Ghost finally meets not only his match,but his uncertain doom. Watch it sometime.

He even traveled through the vortex of time and space to meet up with Dino Boy,The Herculoids,the inter prehistoric stone age crime fighter Mightor,and to meet and fight off evildoers with the hippest,trippest genie of them all..Shazaan. This was in the same category as another Hanna-Barbera character show too,"Dino Boy",about a lost boy who lands in a prehistoric world,where he is befriended by a caveman in a lost valley where danger is always present. Now for all those die-hard fans out there....when will we see this on DVD? Loyal fans of the 1960's cartoon show would really want to know. Catch the episodes on Boomeraction from Cartoon Network.
