HASH(0x8e7d69a8) out of 5 stars "It's Clutch Cargo...With His Pals Spinner And Paddlefoot!" 23 April 2010
By Robert I. Hedges - Published on Amazon.com
They certainly don't make cartoons like this today! "Clutch Cargo" was a television series about a professional adventurer that first aired in 1959. It was the pioneer of a system called "Syncro-Vox," in which an animation cel was combined with the live action lip movements of an actor who was wearing a mask to hide all but the mouth. The effect is very primitive by today's standards, but allowed the series to be made extremely inexpensively by the filmmakers. Often cardboard cutouts of the characters would be simply be moved past the animated backgrounds to indicate motion, though traditional animation was also used.

Each episode was in a series of five five-minute segments with the first four featuring a "cliffhanger" at the end (How will Clutch escape?!) with a final resolution at the end of the fifth. This disc has nine episodes.

Syncro-Vox was very innovative, but ridiculous looking. Because of that the effect has been frequently appropriated for comedic purposes, most notably by Conan O'Brien. These cartoons are throwback to a simpler and more innocent time. While children who have been raised on ultra-realism, slick animation, and CGI may scoff at these cartoons, adults will find them to be endearing classics.
