Group Affiliation: None
Miscellaneous: Clutch Cargo is most remembered today for the “Synchro-Vox” technique in which real human mouths were superimposed on the faces of the characters to keep animation costs down. Paddlefoot's scratching and comical movements were apparently one of the largest animation costs involved in the show! Space Angel and Captain Fathom also used the technique.
