  • The ghost costumes that the ghost riders wear in the cartoon are coated in a substance called phosphorus, which is a chemical substance that glows in the dark. It was originally discovered by German alchemist Hennig Brand in 1669. And many years later, several Halloween decorations, some paints, and even regular pieces of clothing have been given a glow-in-the-dark effect, due to the phosphorus that may have been added.
