The origin of Super Heroes: Space Ghost

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Ghost

Space Ghost (Thaddeus Bach) is a fictional superhero created by American company Hanna-Barbera Productions in the 1960s for TV network CBS. He was designed by Alex Toth.[1]

In his original incarnation, he was a superhero who, with his teen sidekicks, Jan and Jace, and Blip the monkey, fought supervillains in outer space.[2] In the 1990s, Space Ghost was brought back as a host for his own fictional late-night talk show, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, on Cartoon Network and Adult Swim. In the 2000s, he was revamped as a serious superhero once again in a mini-series by DC Comics.

The original series debuted in September 1966. In the original series, Space Ghost was an intergalactic crime fighter from the Ghost Planet. He had the ability to be invisible (Inviso Power) (via his belt), fly, and survive in space. His principal weapons were his power bands which displayed multiple beam-based attacks including heat, cold, magnetism, energy, and force among others.[1] Space Ghost would fight such recurring supervillains as Moltar, Zorak, Black Widow,[a] Metallus, Brak and Creature King with the help of his sidekicks: Jan, Jayce, and their pet monkey, Blip.

The original series shared time with an unrelated segment called Dino Boy in the Lost Valley. During its original run, there were a total of 42 Space Ghost episodes and 18 Dino Boy episodes. The series ended in 1968,[3] but remained in syndication during the 1970s.[4] Space Ghost was voiced by Gary Owens, who is best known for being the announcer for Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In.[5]

1. Don't leave out the theme music!

Composed by Hoyt Curtin.
Perhaps best known for the Jonny Quest, The Flintstones.The Jetsons themes and a lot more.
He seemed to like pushing the horn section to the limits of what they could do.
