Clutch Cargo: You Call This a Cartoon?

clutch cargo

Who would have guessed this cartoon would become a hit?

Who would have thought this was even a cartoon?

Calling Clutch Cargo animation is a stretch. This kid's series, launched in March 1959, was basically a static storyboard with a human mouth.

Even South Park is more life-like than this.

Airplane pilot-Clutch and his pal Spinner and dog Paddlefoot travelled the world in search of adventure in one stagnant episode after another.

The shall-we-say unique nature of style of Clutch Cargo has made it an easy target for spoofing.
