So I got me a big book the other day, all about Hanna-Barbera. It’s the big treasury book filled cool extras like model sheets, comic book samples and stuff- oh so cool. Being a kid of the 70’s, I’m a huge fan of all things Hanna-Barbera. Not always the greatest quality shows, but they often had great energy and concepts. And of course I got to watch tons of reruns of their 60’s shows as well. One thing I always found interesting about HB characters, is they managed to create superheroes that have actually lasted. You see for the most part, all TV animated superhero shows (serious ones not the parodies) were based off actual comic book characters- except HB’s guys. Sure there were other original characters from other studios (very few mind you), but do you know any? What about HB superheroes? Birdman, Galaxy Trio, Herculoids, Mightor, and of course Space Ghost! Simple as heck cartoons, but great as well. So here is a picture of Spaaaaaaaace Ghost!
