The Funky Phantom's Mudsy & Boo, 1971

Hanna-Barbera’s The Funky Phantom made its debut on ABC in September of 1971 and ran until September ’72, encompassing 17 episodes.

The show featured the Hanna-Barbera staple of a trio of teens (Skip, Augie and April) and a pet (Elmo). The young crew befriends a Revolutionary War-era ghost named Jonathan Wellington “Mudsy” Muddlemore and his ghost cat, Boo. Daws Butler provides the Snagglepuss-esque voice of Mudsy, Don Messick is Boo and Micky Dolenz of The Monkees plays Skip.
