Space Ghost from Space Ghost Coast to Coast

Space Ghost premiered in 1966 as a superhero fighting villains in outer space.  The late night talk show spin-off Space Ghost Coast to Coast launched in the mid-90s and focused on Space Ghost’s interviews with other “superheroes.”  While Space Ghost may have been a good crime fighter, his hosting abilities left a little to be desired, leading to awkward and often hilarious interviews.  To make your Space Ghost costume, you might want to flex some of your creativity by painting his logo onto your white suit.  And don’t forget your index cards, so you can ask insightful questions of your interview subjects.
