"When a compassionate lighthouse-keeper rescues an abandoned seal and brings it home to his children to look after, they are drawn into a fight to eliminate seal poachers from their coastal town," according to the DVD sleeve description.

Picture a European version of a "Wonderful World of Disney" production with some social consciousness thrown in, and you're getting close to "Sandy the Seal". So, did Mr. Disney let a live action seal adventure get away? No, witness "Sammy, the Way-out Seal" (1962). This trivial "Sandy" is made more bearable by Malcolm Lockyer's appropriately derivative soundtrack.
