Useful Snippets

Marine Boy had 2 friends - Splasher (the dolphin) and Crystal (a mermaid). Her name doesn't appear on the speaking credits because she couldn't speak, a trait she shares with her puppet counterpart from Stingray 'Marina'.

The 'Magic chewing gum' which enabled Marine Boy to breathe underwater was 'Oxygum'. And Bulton (the pilot of the sub) had a little catchphrase "Pipe down Piper", which he uttered when Piper got into a bit of a panic - as he often did.

A thoroughly enjoyable series with a strange atmosphere due to the lack of incidental music used. A marvellously distinctive, bubbly sounding' theme tune though. Ahhh - how I miss this age of innocence.
