Gerry Anderson's third SF supermarionation saga told the adventures of the WASPs (the World Aquanaut Security Patrol) as they explored the oceans and kept the world safe from a variety of perils. The WASP's main weapon was Stingray, a super-sub under the command of Troy Tempest. Troy's copilot was Phones, and they were often joined on missions by Marina, a princess of the undersea kingdom of Pacifica. Marina could breathe under water, but was unable to speak. In charge of the WASPs was gruff Commander Shore, whose daughter Atlanta was both a member of his staff and Marina's rival for Troy's affection. Written by Marg Baskin <>

According to background information produced by Century 21 for its publications, "Stingray" takes place a few years prior to "Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons" (1967), with some WASP personnel becoming members of the later SPECTRUM. None of this was indicated on screen, however. See more »

Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea With Puppets
19 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

Of the 39 episodes, the following nine are essential viewing:

The Pilot, well filmed Motion Picture TV with wonderful sets, effects, colour and music.

Treasure Down Below, an episode driven by characterisation, mainly Phones and Troy getting all worked up about the treasure and taking the sub to dangerous waters, a classic!

The Big Gun, wonderful colour, action and effects.

The Golden Sea, good science fiction story and great effects.

The Ghost Of The Sea, for once, Commander Shore gets out of the office and goes on a Stingray mission with Troy, giving this episode an Admiral Nelson/Captain Crane voyage to the bottom of the sea feel.

Emergency Marineville, a wonderful special effects episode.

Subterranean Sea, perhaps the best scripted science fiction episode of the series as this very colourful show enters a new sea world and the ending will put a smile on your face, a classic!

Pink Ice, perhaps the second best sci-fi outing of the Stingray series, the title says it all, yes pink icebergs all over the world (including Australia!) and the effects will blow you away!.

Deep Heat, more sci-fi as this wonderfully filmed adventure goes to the very bottom of the sea!
