Spinner and Paddlefoot

As a very young child, Clutch Cargo was one of my favorite cartoon shows.

My not-yet-jaded media consciousness didn’t even pick up on the fact that there really wasn’t any animation. My friends and I only noticed that the characters’ lips looked funny.

The producers mostly just used still drawings and then superimposed video of the voiceover actors mouths speaking the script. The effect is still a bit eery.
