Western Animation: Sealab 2020
Not pictured: Native American lead character Dr. Paul Williams.

A short lived Hanna-Barbera cartoon, airing in the winter of 1972. The show followed the exploits of the crew of Sealab, an underwater research station devoted to studying, exploring, and protecting underwater marine life. The show had a short run, with only 13 episodes aired (and three left unaired).

The show disappeared into obscurity for almost thirty years, before the burgeoning program block [adult swim] took it, and retooled into a more successful parody of itself, Sealab 2021.
