'''''Sealab 2021''''' is one of the first Creator/AdultSwim original shows, which parodies the 1970s animated series ''WesternAnimation/{{Sealab 2020}}'' (and, to a lesser extent, the entire genre of [[LimitedAnimation crudely-animated]] [[TheSixties 60s]] and [[TheSeventies 70s]] cartoons produced by Creator/HannaBarbera) through combining recycled footage and animations with a GagDub. The show lasted from November 2000 to April 2005 with a total of fifty-two 15-minute-long episodes over four seasons.

* ForeignerForADay: In the episode "Let 'Em Eat Corn", Capt. Shanks has Sealab declared a sovereign nation (to get out of paying income taxes), which sets off a wave of increasingly goofy sub-secessions amongst the crew. By the end of the cartoon, even Stormy's furniture and bathroom fixtures (which he claims are robots known as "Change-A-Trons" and "Plumb-bots") have declared their independence.

* InMediasRes: Many episodes. Lampshaded in the late series episode "Shrabster", which plays out like the movie Film/{{Memento}}, with the announcer from SuperFriends cutting in frequently with "Earlier...!"

* TakeThat: A brief one toward Series/StargateSG1, when Quinn suggests that having your only black character be a primitive alien outsider who carries a "space spear" is racist.

Added DiffLines:

** This was particularly mean-spirited because the episode aired right when Creator/AdultSwim was axing anime left and right to make room for original programming.
