Inspiration for Conan's Bill Clinton "Live Satellite" Sketch??, 1 February 2015
Author: EyeDunno from United States

Clutch Cargo and his pals Spinner and Paddlefoot, seen on WDTV - there's a stream of two seasons of this cartoon, where it instantly reminded me of the "guests" that Conan O'Brien would have by dropping a monitor down to show them live via satellite!

Oh my gosh, if you have a moment to watch these episodes, it is truly creepy. Interesting concept that people chose, choosing to use "Synchro-Vox" a "revolutionary miracle technique" claiming to capture speech as it appears rather than conventional animated lip sync. I'm sure glad they didn't use this for Tom and Jerry and Bugs Bunny! The lips look fruit-juicy red and it really doesn't look that good in today's world. Better for use on late night TV of course, and Conan O'Brien does it well!

This process uses much less animation process which ultimately saved tons of money. And I do like the voices used. Save for the lip sync of Spinner, who has the voice of a woman. Something about a young boy with a woman's lips is truly weird!
