TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3212:

Today I'm pleased once again to have as guest blogger, Vinnie, who is writing 'His Take' on the Clutch Cargo Vol 7 DVD and the cartoon in general:

[SPOILER ALERT: This whole blog post is a 'Spoiler Alert', but that is because Vinnie goes into some detail in his review blogs. This is more of a review of the collection from a tween's POV.]

My Take On: 

The Clutch Cargo Volume 7 on DVD from EastWestDVD!

Yesterday, my dad and I went to a collectible store and bought multiple DVDs, but the only one he opened for us to view was the Clutch Cargo DVD. So, Tina, dad, and I watched the DVD. He told me that he used to watch a few chapters of this cartoon as a child, and 50 years later, I am doing the same thing. This is why he picked this up, and opened it to share with us. Below are my thoughts on the Clutch Cargo Volume 7 DVD. 

Because I view modern day cartoons, this looks very outdated. I haven't seen any cartoon in modern days that looked as bad as this, but it is only due to the lack of technology they had back then. Whenever the characters were up close, their eyes wouldn't blink, and they had a real mouth.

It seemed a little creepy as it looked as though they were staring at you, and were talking at whatever was looking at it. If I read the credits correctly, this process was called syncro-vox. Whenever they had character talking, but not up close, they would always conveniently have their mouth hidden by something.

On the DVD, there were 3 episodes, with each episode containing 5 four minute chapters, telling that episode's story. They would have a recap of the previous chapter before the clip and I almost felt that half of the chapter was the recap. Along with that, they kept recycling footage, using it whenever they could so they wouldn't have to produce it again. It was actually kind of funny spotting where they had already used that scene from.

What I found to be very funny, was that when it ended the 3rd collection of episodes, it restarted back from 1, meaning, you could possibly have your child sit there watching it all day without them knowing it was the same thing.

And finally, on the Comic Book Grade Scale, I would give it a 5.5 out of a possible 10.0 scale, which is a FINE MINUS (F-) letter grade. 

     -------------------------------------------

That's the end of the first part of today's guest blog by Vinnie...My thanks to him for sharing here today what we watched this weekend!

If YOU'd like to start viewing these cartoon episodes, here's a good place to start with on Volume 1: Clutch Cargo - Volume 1 !

Also...If YOU liked his review on this DVD, you may enjoy reading his reviews on: The All New Super Friends Hour Season 1 DVDThe Ultimate Underdog Collection Volume 1Planet HulkCoraline, Ponyo, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Sonic the Hedgehog TPB Vol 1, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, just to name a recent few!   

Here's my own additional thoughts on this DVD, before we close this blog post:

First of all, this DVD contained Episodes:

#40 'The Missing Mermaid' with chapters 196 - 200.

#44 'Water Wizards' with chapters 216 -220.

And Episode #23 'The Midget Submarine' with chapters #111 - 115.

Figuring that this is a 'fair representation' of the TV Cartoon Series, which had a total of 52 episodes, I want to say this:

I never was able to catch all these episodes when I was younger. I might see a chapter or two, but even then it was very strange at that time to see the talking lips in the cartoons!

Which is why I opened this DVD last night to share with Vinnie and Tina!  To let them see what this cartoon series was about.  You see, the cartoon had five chapters.  Each chapter could be aired on a weekday, and then the 5 compiled in a half hour Saturday morning cartoon show in syndication.  It actually makes a lot of sense to recap the previous chapter because a 'real day' would have passed since then.

Not justifying this format, just explaining it to you that haven't viewed this cartoon series before.  The sales clerk told me that it wasn't a modern cartoon series before she rung it up, as the rest of the DVDs were anime DVDs.  I told her that I understood that, and she explained that her kids were a little disappointed in the format when she opened her copy.

What I found in doing a little more research on this series was the following:

The show was written by Clark Haas, and produced by Cambria Productions. The show used the voices of Richard Cotting who was a radio actor and voiced Clutch, Margaret Kerry who voiced Spinner and Paddlefoot (the Daschund), and Hal Smith who voiced Swampy and others.

An interesting note here...Margaret Kerry has her own web site where she sells a Clutch Cargo cartoon photo card. See this link for that!

And Hal Smith is probably better known as 'Otis' on The Andy Griffith Show!

Historical Note: This show was the first TV show to use the syncro-vox optical system.  It had been used for talking animal commercials before that!

As for the 'limited animation' issue.  You have to know that what footage the Disney Studio would produce for $250,000 would be produced for only $18,000 by Cambria Productions! Thus the BIG difference in quality!

As a final historical note...Cambria Studios had 2 other syncro-vox TV series!  Space Angel in 1962 and then Captain Fathom in 1965.  They also had a different type of show in 1965 titled 'The New 3 Stooges Show' without the moving lips feature.

I personally found viewing the DVD a novel yet strange experience.  The bongo beat in the theme music was familar, and the moving lips, but I hadn't seen the Saturday compilation shows, so seeing the 5 chapters in each episode run together was a little repetitious in replaying what had gone on in the previous chapter(s).  But that isn't the way it was originally presented each weekday!

For comic book fans, would you believe Alex Toth had a hand in this show?!  As well as Cambria Productions' Space Angel and Captain Fathom!

I can't end without stating that the syncro-vox was invented by Edwin Gillete, who was a co-partner in the Cambria Productions company. 

Clark Haas went on to be associated with Hanna-Barbera, and worked on a few shows, including Super Friends that Vinnie has already blogged about!

My thanks to Vinnie and Tina who watched this DVD with me last night!

TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3211:

I've been blogging about the most recent Comic-Con that we've been to during the last few weeks. (The SDCC!)

However, not all comic shows are as large as the one in San Diego. Nor do they all run the same amount of days. But each one has its own distinct flavor.

So I'm always glad to hear of new shows, no matter what size that are starting up!

One that is happening soon is the Expo that is mentioned above.  Please Note:  This Expo is a "Strictly Underground Theme". So please realize that it is probably not suitable for very young kids. That is my take on this, and not from the promoters. It is a brand new show which is being held at:

Chuco's Justice Center - 1137 E. Redondo Blvd, Inglewood, CA 90302.

The Date of this One-Day Expo is August 28th, 2010. Tickets are $8 at the Door, and $5 pre-sale.

Contributing artists and vendors scheduled to exhibit are:

Alex Chili, Donna Letterese, Beee Bello, DCastr, Dwap Productions, Ezra, Dreams by Machine, Taco Comics, Hyperwerks, Brandon Bracamonte, Jimmy Bell, Karl Altstaetter, Crude Dude Comix, Rebornz Art, Splatter Beast, James Riot, Scott Aicher, MIF, Alexnadra Gonzales, Amer Shihab, Tony Acosta, John Tomason, Tom Neely, Yuki Miyazaki, Natures Mistake, and more!

As this is a brand new show, Tina and I have not attended this one before.  Please be advised of the 'Strictly Underground Theme' that this show centers on. We are looking at making arrangements to possibly check this show out. You can do the same by looking at the below links.

For those of YOU that are members of Facebook, feel free to 'like' the Slum Circus Facebook Fan Page and become interactive.

For those of you that aren't Facebook members, or if there are additional questions you may have, feel free to check out their web site at: SlumCircus.org.

Thanks to the good people at Taco Comics for bringing this to my attention!

TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3210:

Today's post is on the Special Promotional Preview Edition that Bob Burden shared with Tina and myself at the Off-Site Comic Party that I blogged about earlier this week, (Second Annual Captain Rochester Artists Appreciation Dinner).

For those of YOU that don't know of Bob's works, he is responsible for: Flaming Carrot, and Mystery Men, among other creations of his.  I'll post the links to them at the end of this blog.

Bob pulled out a promotional preview edition of a future publication of this material when Tina asked him what his most current project was.

Bob explained that the story contained in this Preview Edition would be the additional new feature in the Second Deluxe Flaming Carrot Hard Back Collected Volume titled 'The Wild Shall Wild Remain'.

The actual cover to the hardback volume is printed on the back of this preview edition, but not shown here in this post.

The new story is an 8 pager titled 'Cryptid'. I found it to be as engaging as other stories that Flaming Carrot has been in during previous years. And rather timely in the quips!

There are also five pages of a Flaming Carrot Gallery which rounds out the Preview Edition!

YOU can find out more on what's happening with the Collected Volume at Bob's web site: FlamingCarrot.com.

Plus check out his other works at: MysteryMen.net, DynamiteGirl.net, and MulletForce6.com.

Thanks Bob, for sharing this news via the Special Preview Edition with us at the dinner party.  Looking forward to seeing more in the upcoming months!

TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3209:

Today's post is a 'guest blog post' by my wife, Tina LoSasso.

She attended several programs in Hall 'H' on Thursday of this years' San Diego Comic Con International while I attended other programs outside of Hall 'H'.

Here's her thoughts on one program / panel that she really enjoyed and wanted to blog about ASAP:

3-D Animated Megamind Looks Like Mega Fun!

Dreamworks’ Megamind panel at San Diego Comic-Con was an opportunity for the film’s three comedic actors to display their talents.  Will Ferrell stole the show by dressing up as his character, villain Megamind complete with blue face paint and what looked like a blue globe lampshade on his head.  He cautioned the audience members who would want to do this at home not to use spray paint, as he had.

Tina Fey (intrepid reporter Roxanne Ritchi) had a chance to live out a fantasy holding a life-size cut-out of Brad Pitt who voices everyone’s hero, Metro Man.

By his comments, Jonah Hill (TV news cameraman) showed why most of his work is in R-rated movies despite the fact that he was representing a family film and talking to a crowd with kids. SuperBad, Jonah.

The highlight of the Q&A was the re-appearance of a Comic-Con favorite, Bob Stencil to ask why such a resurgence of blue characters? Megamind, Avatar, Smurfs.

We were treated to a clip from the 3-D animation movie which looked amazing. The 3-D encompassed the entire movie, “not just sticks coming out” as Director Tom McGrath put it.

There are plenty of jokes for kids and adults alike. Best sight gag: the familiar Obama poster reinterpreted for Megamind that read: No You Can’t

Megamind will be out in time for the holiday season opening November 5, 2010. Mark your calendars and enjoy!

TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3208:

Today's post is a continuation from my youngest son's blog post on Monday, July 26th, after we ended our five days attendance at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con International.  Vinie's earlier blog post, 'Celebrating Captain Rochester at Comic-Con - From a Tween's POV' told the story from his point of view.  

Today, I'm going to add just a little more text, and a lot more photos from the event we were invited to. Plus a link to where YOU can see and purchase the Captain Rochester items that Vinnie and I have discussed in the two posts.

 

First of all...Tina and I were invited to this Offsite Comic-Con Party by George Karalias of Rochester Electronics.  I had blogged about the promotional comics that Rochester Electronics had published after seeing my Facebook Friend, Scott Shaw!, at the 2010 Wizard World Anaheim Comic Con with the 2nd issue.

Scott had illustrated issue #2 in this series, and was selling them at his table in Artists Alley at Wizard World. I enjoy seeing Scott's artwork, and enjoyed the storyline as well.  Thus my blog post about seeing issue #2 at Scott's table as seen here.

Well...George Karalias saw my interest in this series, and sent me a copy of issue #1.  I then did a joint review blog on both issues in this blog post here.  As you can see after reading both of the blogs about Captain Rochester, this is a great concept using 'promotional comic books' that too often nowadays is overlooked!

So anyways...I was pleased to see an invite in the mail to myself to attend the Second Annual Captain Rochester Artists Appreciation Dinner Party.  I knew my wife Tina LoSasso would love to attend, but we were bringing my youngest son this year to Comic-Con all 5 days / nights.  Turned out that George was fine in accepting Vinnie to attend, especially as he was going to be picture taking, as well as myself!

As you will see in the photos below, a Great Time was had by all that attended!  Can you figure who they all are?  Here's some help in identifying them:
