The Arctic Bird Giant (film #2 on Disc #1 of Clutch Cargo: The Complete Series, Volume 1 DVD (Brentwood Home Video, 2005)). [Category: Outtakes & Obscurities]

This episode of the very limited animation series features Clutch & Co. tracking down and capturing a giant arctic bird that’s been stealing the cargo of a trader who is trying to build an igloo housing development for the Eskimos that includes a TV in every igloo. That’s about as enlightened a portrayal of Eskimos as it gets. This is one of the sillier Clutch episodes, with an Eskimo character that will make you cringe at times.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
