''Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea'' is the English title of the French animated series ''Les Mondes Engloutis'' ( or "The Engulfed Worlds"), best known by American viewers as that trippy little series that ran on {{Nickelodeon}} for two years (1985-1987). You know, the one with the opening theme song sung by Menudo in Season 2.

* VerbalTic: Spartakus has a mild one, reliably avoiding the use of contractions.

**If you compare the intros in the French and English versions, it look likes this a side effect of the decision to do [[TranslatedCoverVersion translated cover versions]] of the original songs plus the desire to move the title card from the end of the intro song to the beginning. The new position featured Arkadia and the Shagma/Tehra so, the sun had to be mentioned. What probably happened was the translator was stabbing around for something that vaguely kept the sense of the first lines of the refrain "Suis les mondes engloutis/Jusqu'au creux de la Terre" (something like "Go to the engulfed worlds/in the heart of the Earth", despite what Google Translate says), the second line became "to the Sun beneath the sea" and they then realized "Go follow Spartakus," fit in for the first line. And suddenly, they had their English language title.

* KnightOfCerebus: Arkshag. Unlike the pirates, his villainy is played straight and his role in the story ties into saving the Tehra.
** Also, Gog/Magog/The Hydra is the most dangerous monster(s) in the setting. Its first appearance was arguably one of the scariest episodes of the series and its subsequent appearances are treated very seriously.

*** Probably justified. If you wee a gladiator, and forced to fight to the death for the amusment of others for years of your life wouldn't you be sick of violence?

** Maybe because to an American mindset "Bob" sounds more like a grown man's name and "Matt" sounds more like a young boy's?

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The French version has been released on DVD in Region 2. The English dub still hasn't been released ''anywhere''.

Specially Meedios, who whenever something was about to happen to the group, would start shouting "ALAAAAARRRRRMMMM! ALAAAAAAARRRRMMMM!!" into the nearest microphone.



* NonSingingVoice: The Pirates' song and the Flashbick were supposedly sung by, respectively, the Pirates and Bic and Bac, but in the original French the singing voices were provided by the child group Mini-Star and didn't sound anything like the decidedly adult speaking voices. Especially blatant in the case of the Pirates.
