Editorial Reviews

Scott McCloud is the Space Angel, a secret agent for EBI (Earth Bureau of Investigation), who together with his friends, Taurus, Crystal, and Professor Mace, travel far and wide from their base on the space station Evening Star, on board the spaceship Starduster. Whether it's battling a mass exile, or stopping a brainwashing mad scientist, it's all in a day's work to secure the welfare of the solar system. Space Angel was an animated science fiction television series produced from early 1962 through 1964. It used the same Synchro-Vox (live-action moving lips over the mouths of the animated characters lips) technique as Clutch Cargo, the first cartoon produced by the same studio, Cambria Productions. The science fiction stories were serialized with five episodes comprising each adventure. Voices included Ned Lefebver as Scott McCloud, with Margaret Kerry and Hal Smith providing other incidental voices.

Bonus Features: Episode Selection, Interview with Margaret Kerry (Tinker Bell), Adlets Specs: DVD9; Color; Year 1962

The Space Angel was one of those early sixties cartoon that came out early in the space race. As noted by others, the Space Angel was done by the same folks who did Clutch Cargo, which became a bit of cult favorite because the voice sync was done by superimposing actors' moving lips on still drawings. In effect, what you have is someone animating a comic book - good to excelent art work, but very limited animation. But, it is this wonderful art work that redeems Space Angel - notably that by Alex Toth, who helped on Jonny Quest, Space Ghost, and a host of others. And really, the plots are not too bad - and the science is reasonably accurate - yeah, it gets strained at times - but really the basics are there.

So, an enjoyable trip down memory lane - the prints and sound tracks are in excellent shape! Well worth its modest price!

I just got done reviewing the 'maybe it'll be released' DVD of Marvel Superheroes '66 Collection. Disney has the rights to that collection and it seems that it's release has been delayed. We'll hope and pray it sees the light of day.

It made me think immediately of this cartoon, though, because I used to watch Space Angel and Marvel Superheroes (and Gumby as well I think) on early Sunday mornings in the Albany, NY area (can't remember which television station) back in the mists of time. I was young and it was probably the early 70s, a few years after it's original release. I was too young when it first aired, being born in 1964.

Even as I was watching it as a kid I realised that it was cheap animation. I was already watching Walt Disney and Fleischer Popeyes, so I could tell this wasn't as good, but I loved it anyway. Partially due to the fact that there were hardly any cartoons on Sunday mornings! But also because the Space theme was cool.

Thanks to VCI (no, I don't work for them) for being the company to finally release this. I would have preferred a full season set (not sure if there was more than one season), but this will do the trick in the absence of any other release.

I know that this will sell if VCI can just get the word out to adults of my generation, so best of luck to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stand By for Adventure November 12, 2008

Animation is expensive to make, which is why so many full-animation cartoons today are made in Korea and other places overseas. In its beginnings on TV in the late '50s, animators also had to contend with paltry budgets for an entire series, as opposed to the lavish capital for theatrical cartoons. It was widely believed that no one could make a half hour cartoon for TV. Hanna-Barbera did, beginning with The Ruff and Reddy Show, and the rest is animation history.

But it meant cutting corners, what H-B called "limited animation". In H-B and Filmation shows, it meant characters running past the same house and barber pole over and over again, and that animated heads were filmed on mostly non-moving bodies. Jay Ward, for Crusader Rabbit, made different choices, relying on a narrator to tell the story and minimize characters talking. Both Crusader and Sondac's Space Marine, Colonel Bleep, were "cliff-hanger" cartoons, broken into short segments that could be shown by a live TV host, like Captain Kangaroo or J.P. Patches, interspersed throughout a live action kids' show.

To kids of the era, this seemed like a great mix, and Nick brought it back for a short-lived, but popular show called Wienerville. The best known cliff-hanger cartoon is also one of the most loved: Jay Ward's Rocky and Bullwinkle show. The advantages are obvious. Retelling "our story so far" enabled animators to reuse the same animation from the last segment. The narrator's witty and dramatic recap of "when we last left Moose and Squirrel" showed that you didn't really need to animate much if you had a winning combination of great character design and scripts that played like radio.
