Your Best Friend, Clutch Cargo
31 July 2009 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Aristotle argued that good and bad art can be objectively distinguished. But there's an alternative saying that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. In the end, your love for something or someone overrides their objective qualities.

Thus my feelings about the Clutch Cargo series are not swayed by criticisms that the artwork or animation is simplistic or strange. As I first watched Clutch in my childhood days, perhaps my mind was imprinted with an indelibly favorable impression.

Clutch is a powerful hero, yet down to earth. A tremendously nice guy, he'd risk his life to save a stranger. He attracts the ladies, but if anything is going on, he's totally discrete - never any boasting or flaunting on his part. Clutch deeply cares for his ward Spinner, who doesn't need to attend formal school as his guardian is an excellent instructor.

There is some similarity to Batman and Robin, except those two faced great emotional upheavals sometimes in conflict with each other. This torment is absent from Clutch and family.

Adventure awaits at every juncture, villains are defeated, good people prevail. Each episode contains five chapters, the first four cliffhangers, the finale upbeat. A total of 52 episodes are exactly enough to last a year without repetition. The bongo beat of the musical theme is hypnotic. Paddlefoot, coincidently for me a dachshund, is reminiscent of my beloved childhood pooch.

I'm haunted by the expression you can't go home again. But Clutch takes you very close. When you're overwhelmed by the world's madness and by your personal travails including invincible aging, you can seek timeless escape and solace by turning to Clutch Cargo, your best friend.
