Sealab 2020: The Complete Series review

"This is the year two thousand and twenty. The place is the Challenger Sea Mount, the top of an underwater mountain, a complex beneath the sea. Two hundred and fifty men, women and children live here. Each of them, a scientist pioneer. For this is our last frontier, a hostile environment which may hold the key to tomorrow. Each day, these oceanauts meet new challenges as they build their city beneath the sea. This is Sealab 2020."

With these words setting the stage, and some funky bass riffs setting the tone, Saturday morning TV took the 70s underwater Sci Fi adventure plunge. Ably overseen by Hanna-Barbera's ace action animators and voiced by a superb cast (including John Stephenson, Ross Martin, Jerry Dexter and Ann Jillian), the oceanauts of Sealab face seaquakes, sharks and falling satellites while finding the time to serve up lessons on environmentalism, tolerance, and teamwork across this 2-Disc, 13-Episode Collection.

Available Now On DVD


I don't remember this cartoon.. I know I had heard of Sealab 2020 before but after watching the entire series yesterday I do not think I had ever seen it before. Anyways I wasn't feeling all that great yesterday so I decided to watch it all and I admit just like any old cartoons this one was a little cheesy but I very much enjoyed it. I have watched a bunch of these Hanna-Barbera Classic Collections classic cartoons and I admit this is one of the best one I have seen so far. This a great cartoon for everyone of all ages.
