Clutch Cargo was a globe-trotting adventurer, writer and pilot. He would fly from one problem to another along with his apprentice Spinner, dachshund Paddlefoot, and his pal Swampy. Enjoy 9 episodes of this classic cartoon series that revolutionized the animation world.
This collection includes nine episodes of the innovative cartoon series, which featured a total of 52 episodes overall. Revolving around an adventurer named Clutch Cargo (and his pals: Spinner, Paddlefoot, and Swampy), the series was the first to use the Synchro-Vox animation system. Created by combining still animation cells with footage of live actor's mouths, this technique (which would later be used for comic purposes in shows such as LATE NIGHT WITH CONAN O'BRIEN) made the show unique. Relying more on dialogue and plotline than on special effects, it was the show's handmade quality (cardboard character cutouts were often used in the background) that gave it its charm. Each episode of the series was composed of five, five-minute segments, the story being resolved only in the last chapter. Directed by Phil Booth, the series features the voices (and lips) of Richard Cotting, Margaret Kerry, and Hal Smith.
