Scott McCloud is the Space Angel, a secret agent for EBI (Earth Bureau of Investigation), who together with his friends - Taurus, Crystal, and Professor Mace - travel far and wide from their base on the space station Evening Star, on board the spaceship Starduster. Whether it's battling a mass exile, or stopping a brainwashing mad scientist, it's all in a day's work to secure the welfare of the solar system.
Space Angel was an animated science fiction television series produced from early 1962 through 1964. It used the same Synchro-Vox (live-action moving lips over the mouths of the animated characters lips) technique as Clutch Cargo, the first cartoon produced by the same studio, Cambria Productions. The science fiction stories were serialized with five episodes comprising each adventure. Voices included Ned Lefebver as Scott McCloud, with Margaret Kerry and Hal Smith providing other incidental voices.
