Space Angel was created by Dik Darley and Dick Brown of Cambria Studios, the same studio which had produced Clutch Cargo . Like Clutch Cargo, It utilized Cambria's patented Synchro-Vox technique, which superimposed live-action moving lips over the mouths of the animated characters. The animation was severely limited, consisting of panel drawings and figures animated mainly by camera movements. Among those working on the art for the series was Alex Toth, a former National Comics (DC) artist who later designed Space Ghost and most of the other Hanna-Barbera super hero cartoons, and Doug Wildey, who created Jonny Quest for Hanna-Barbera and later worked on Hanna-Barbera's animated Godzilla and DePatie-Freleng's animated Return to the Planet of the Apes.
Space Angel first appeared in syndication on February 6, 1962 and production continued through 1964. The science fiction stories were serialized with five episodes comprising each adventure. Voices included Ned Lefebvre as Scott McCloud, with Margaret Kerry and Hal Smith providing other incidental voices.
