Captain Klutz AKA Ringo Fonebone is a bungling, PerpetualPoverty-stricken superhero created by cartoonist Don Martin of ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' fame.

The Captain's parody misadventures were printed in ''Mad'' paperbacks, rather than the magazine itself. While Martin handled the artwork, various other ''Mad'' artists did the writing. See TheOtherWiki for more [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Klutz publishing details]].
