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 [[ publishing details]].
!!This comic strip provides examples of:
* AccidentalHero: Klutz becomes a hero thanks to his bungled suicide attempt.
* AppropriatedAppellation / LineOfSightName: A mumbled comment from a dazed Klutz gives him his name.
* TheBadGuyWins: Happens sometimes, [[spoiler:Sissyman]] being one prominent example.
* CaptainSuperhero: Nominally, at least.
* ConnectTheDeaths: One of Mervin the Mad Bomber's attacks uses this schtick.
* DaChief - Police Chief O'Freenbean
* GiantSpider: Gorgonzola
* GravityIsAHarshSeamstress: How Klutz first acquires his mask and costume.
* HarmlessElectrocution: How [[spoiler:Gorgonzola]] is finally defeated.
* MadBomber: Mervin the Mad Bomber
* MasterOfDisguise: Long Chinny (with a ShoutOut [[Creator/LonChaney name]]).
* NiceHat: Subverted, in that Klutz's mask started life as a supremely ugly hat.
* NoodleIncident:
-->'''Klutz:''' I immediately jumped out the window. Luckily, Sissyman's apartment was on the first floor. It used to be on the second floor, but that's another story.
* PullingThemselvesTogether: Klutz may actually possess one genuine super-power.
* SissyVillain: Sissyman, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin unsurprisingly]].
* SoundDefect: An exploding missile gives off a very disappointing "WANGO".
* StatusQuoIsGod: Parodied at the end of "Chicken Soup", with the Mayor [[spoiler:still a mindless zombie]]. "..No one's ever complained before."
* TwistEnding: [[spoiler: Gorgonzola is revealed to be a mechanical construct controlled by a human operator inside.]]
* WildTake: It's a Don Martin cartoon, so, yeah. One of the most extreme examples occurs when Klutz meets Gorgonzola for the first time.
* WouldntHitAGirl: Shoot her, well, that's a different story..
* WrittenSoundEffect: Again, a Martin trademark.
