I had to make this one a two-parter because I really like how these heroes go together. Between the similar color schemes, settings and menaces that they battle, they seem to be characters that would be a natural fit with one another. Space Ghost was probably the first non-DC or Marvel superhero that I really became a fan of, due to his appearances on Hanna-Barbera's World of Super-Adventure from my youth. For some reason, when I think back on those shows, the element that stands out in my mind the most is the sound effects. Those cool spaceship, monster, and wrist blast sounds, coupled with the fun character design, made up for the simplistic animation that was used. Still, I would love to see an updated Space Ghost cartoon, done straight in today's style. The Batman: The Brave and the Bold appearance was fun, but I want more!
