was a 1980s cartoon, originally developed by Freddy Monnickendam and produced by Hanna-Barbera
, about Snorks, who live in a domed village under the sea and have snorkel-like appendages on their heads instead of noses.
The Snorks were forbidden to ever leave their undersea village because those in power didn't want them to be found by humanity. So, Once an Episode
, the heroes of the show had to leave the village for the greater good. And they always got away with it, despite the punishment for leaving being steep.
...at least, that was the gist of Season 1. The later seasons focused more on how the Snorks interacted with each other.
It's a little like The Smurfs but underwater
— and less conformist. They do their smurfing
in pretty much the same way (All's well that snorks well!).
