Oddity 6 (Kids Cartoon: Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show)

Here's an odd one...

The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show
Season 1, Episode 11, "Ghostfinger"
Air date: 12/1/1979

Synopsis: A villain named Ghostfinger has returned from the grave to get revenge on the people responsible for sending him to prison.

Sounds reasonable. Let's take a closer look...

The maniacal Ghostfinger imprisons a time machine inventor and commandeers his device, setting it to the year 1301... that he can summon two ghostly monster friends from the past to aid him.

Namely: the Abominable Snowman and the Wolf Monster!

Plastic Man can't touch them because they're ghosts. But they can touch him; and they get the best of him.

And continue their efforts to get revenge on Ghostfinger's enemies.

Plastic Man returns in the end, of course, and says some magic words he read from a random book on the shelf that allow him to actually touch the ghost monsters.

FYI: if you ever want to actually touch a ghost, just repeat:  "Ickity bickity moo doo locky boo!" Voila.

"Ickity bickity moo doo locky boo!"


And then he hurls them and Ghostfinger back into the time machine to send them back to the past.

The end.
