That's the old spirit!

Here's an apparition that never had the chance to materialize in Tremorton. According to the original series bible, "the Polterguest" was to be the one kid more desperate for teenage friendship than Jenny. However, at the time Rob pitched the character, the network felt the idea tread to far into "Danny Phantom" territory. As you can see, we didn't even get the chance to decide on a gender for the character.


I mourn this lost soul for a couple of reasons; a phantom flapper would have been a great way to extend the 1930's theme into the show, and a supernatural character would have been a great way to expand mlaatr's world beyond the science fiction genre. Too bad she hadn't a gost of a chance.

Quite a pity to read that... I would have loved to see the show touch the realm of the supernatural :) But anyways, the designs are fabulous as always! ^_^ the character seems so fluid and dynamic :D
I particularly love the clothing designs on the female version of the ghost.

Wonderful!

A chance to tie in to the Art deco fo the 1930s also. She could have been a lost relative of Wakeman who inspired the personality and voice of Jenny. (Voiced by Janice of course)


Just one more reason to move the show to Cartoon Network.

Any way I and the other fans can help with that? Petitions, email campaign, bribes?

Aww...that's too bad. Looks like the Poulterguest would've been a VERY good character.

Great character! shame it didn't work out. I've always been a sucker for that roaring twenties feel, so these drawings are extra sweet! Fantastic work guys.

Personally, I don't think you guys are rip-offs of Danny Phantom, I think they are rip-offs of YOU.

it looks a bit too mistyish ,misty seems to have ghostworthy skills

the show was kind of technical based i'm kind of glad you didnt go into the paranormal

mrs wakeman would have had a hard time technobabble explaining a ghost
