To aid him, Space Ghost has imprisoned his arch enemies Zorak and Moltar, and has forced them into slavery. Zorak acts as band leader and Moltar acts as director and producer. They regularly disrupt the show and make no secret of the fact that they hate Space Ghost.

The series officially premiered on April 15, 1994 and ended on May 31, 2008 with a total of 110 episodes over the course of the show's ten seasons.
