* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: In the pilot episode there's a dramatic announcement regarding the current crisis, "Anything could happen in the next half hour!" Of course that's just so they can say the line in the TitleSequence introducing each half-hour long episode.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Surface agent X20, who sounded like PeterLorre, though his appearance was based on Claude Rains. Troy Tempest was modelled on James Garner, and Marina on Brigitte Bardot.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Zeerust}}: A guarantee in all of Anderson's Supermarionation works set in the future. According to the show's technical manual, Stingray is capable of speeds up to 600 knots and submerging to depths of 36,000 feet (for reference the Seawolf class fast attack submarine is rated at 35 knots and approx. 2350 feet) making it every bit as advanced today as it was then. Not so for pretty much everything else in the show: sixties decor and fashions, big computers with lots of flashing lights and spinning wheels, terrible graphics and resolution on every monitor etc.

* SuddenlyVoiced: Marina actually does speak in one episode, her voice being provided by Gerry Anderson's wife, Sylvia (who would gain more recognition in [[WesternAnimation/{{Thunderbirds}} Anderson's next series]] as Lady Penelope).

* CuteMute: Marina. According to the audio adventure "Marina Speaks" a curse was put on her race by Titan so if any of them ever spoke, another of them would die.

'''''Stingray''''' is a children's marionette television show, created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, that ran from 1964-65. Stingray was also the first British television programme to be filmed entirely in colour (the earlier series ''The Adventures Of Sir Lancelot'' had been made in colour from halfway through its run thanks to NBC money - although British TV viewers wouldn't get colour television until 1967).
