Ghost Of Cartoons Past!
Above is the iconic Space Ghost, the elegant and sleek space superhero created by Alex Toth for Hanna-Barbera back in the 60's.
But it seems that classic look took a while to come to. Here are a gaggle of sketches showing a somewhat different Space Ghost, a more wan figure with some distinctive styling differences.
Apparently they were going to show his face too.
Here the design is in color.
But these designs didn't do the trick, and Toth went back to the drawing board. He came up with this look.
And the rest as they say is history.
