Major Tom is a character from from one episode of The Venture Bros. TV show, Ghosts of the Sargasso. As part of the Original Team Venture he was an experimental jet pilot. He met his demise when the TVC-15, the aircraft he was flying at the time, went down and crashed into the ocean.

Years later, Doctor Thaddeus Venture attempted to salvage the TVC-15 by using the Metasonic Locator to "reverse time" and remove all the debris that had covered the jetcraft. Instead, he accidentally brought back Major Tom as an undead corpse. When it came aboard the X-2, it became screaming incoherently and loudly, though it was ultimately merely annoying. Hank Venture and Dean Venture attempted to placate the spirit by calling his old wife Jeanie. It worked for a while, but the Action Man interjected and mentioned she had married him in Tom's absence. This set the ghost of Major Tom off even worse. However, Brock Samson quickly dismembered Tom's ghost and threw its remains back into the ocean's depths.

Trivia Edit

  • During Major Tom's crash, he has a dialogue with Jonas Venture Sr. that lifts the lines directly from the David Bowie song "Space Oddity" with sme lines from "Ashes to Ashes", particularly of note is a "message to the Action Man". Major Tom is inspired by the eponymous character from the Space Oddity.
