CLUTCH CARGO / Cambria Studios - 1959

Welcome, everbloody, to Wednesday Oldie Time! When Tabonga was lil' dude he watch good old Clutch and pals a lot. It was different than other cartoon, it have limited animation and weird looking, live action mouths, and Tabonga thunk even they originally made in B+W!

Writer, artist, director, Clark Haas, also work on these other project... SPACE ANGEL, THE SECRET LIVES OF WALDO KITTY, SPACE SENTINELS, THE NEW ARCHIE/SABRINA HOUR, CAPTAIN FATHOM, SPEED BUGGY, SUPER FRIENDS, THE ADDAMS FAMILY and VALLEY OF THE DINOSAURS!

Clutch' pals Spinner and Paddlefoot remind Tabonga' of lil' pet palz Ralphie an' Piff!.. Paddlefoot' name should be 'PaddleEars' though!

Eegah!! give us another nice 'Earrific' soundclip for our listening pleasure. Cool music by Paul Horn. Paul also work on SPACE ANGEL and THE NEW THREE STOOGES cartoons and as actor he was in A BUCKET OF BLOOD as Beatnik Saxophonist and NIGHT TIDE as Jazz Flutist!!

Is pet Piff' turn to start old ball rolling today by pressing big red 'GO' button again, so, enjoy... JUNGLE BANANA BOAT TRAIN!

Clutch get important message from carrier pidgeon! They not show it, but, pidgeon poop on Clutch' table.

Obviously, Clutch, Spinner an' Paddlefoot on way to jungle, since that in the title! Clutch' classic plane is highly efficient, 575 h.p. Bellanca "Aircruiser!"

Whip Lash and Victor know gang on the way, so, have little surprise for them when making landing!

Ready to touch down.

Being evil lots of fun!

Pal Swampy pop out of tree to greet Clutch.

Whip Lash and Victor mess wif' banana baron, Chub Perkins. Tabonga was relieve to find out Chub mean 'chubby!' ...Whew!!

Caption by Mike Nelson... "Those butts, so ripe for kicking!"

Paddlefoot want to play paddlefootball!!

What people mean when saying... 'It Backfired!'

Swampy put out the word to The Friendly Headhunters that help needed delivering bananas! Chief hear message. 'Friendly Headhunter' probably mean that they courteous when shrinking you head?

So, Chief and Headhunters show up with trolly car, ready to help out!

Clutch and gang build flatcar to hold bananas.

But, Whip Lash cut brake cable to trolly!!..

Everything fine when going uphill...

But, some kind of crazy monkey-ride going down steep mountain!

It take lotsa big muscle to fix this problem!

After safe decent from mountain, Clutch and everbloody give big sigh of relief! Then, Paddlefoot see Whip and Victor trying to hide in barrels.

The bad guy end up rolling down hill and crashing, encased in rubber, ready for jail!!

And, Clutch save the day again!!

Bring on SPACE ANGEL!

BTW, if you scroll up or down real fast on the screen caps, you'll actually see more motion than you would in the series itself!

Gave new meaning to the phrase "limited animation." How about NO animation?
