Funky Phantom

The Funky Phantom was about three teenagers who travelled around solving mysteries and righting wrongs - unlike certain other shows, however, this one brought its ghosts along for the ride.

Teenagers Skip, Augie, and April, along with dog Elmo, accidentally release the ghost of Jonathan Wellington Muddlemore (aka Rusty) and his ghostly cat Boo from a grandfather clock. Rusty had been in the clock since the Revolutionary War, when he selected the clock as a hiding place from the British. Now released, the funky phantom is glad to be free and roaming the countryside.

Episodes of The Funky Phantom were later put back into circulation in such 'package' shows as The Fun World of Hanna-Barbera and The Godzilla/Dynomutt Show. You can view a gallery of Funky Phantom comic book covers by going here.
