Trivia

This was the Sub-Mariner's sole animated series. The character was Marvel Comics' first and mightiest mutant, and had been a staple of Marvel Comics since the early nineteen forties, when he was first introduced. It was also the series in which the Uncanny X-Men made their television debut, in the episode "Doom's Day." The episode was based on a Fantastic Four story, but because the television rights belonged to Hanna-Barbara, the X-Men were substituted for the Fantastic Four. See more »

The Sub-Mariner is the Prince of the Deep! So Beware you Deadly Demons!
12 August 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

The storylines and artwork for this cartoon were taken straight from the Marvel classics, "Sub-Mariner" and "Tales to Astonish" comics.

The animation is sparse like in the other 1966 Marvel Superheroes cartoons. The story is what shines in these 1966 Marvel cartoons and Sub-mariner is no different. Most of the early Sub-mariner comics dealt with his hatred of surface dwellers caused by their mistreatment of the oceans. It has a catchy classic theme song like all the other Marvel Superheroes cartoons. Sub-mariner and countless other Marvel heroes are long overdue to get a new cartoon series. Maybe one day that will happen if Marvel will look past the X-men, Spiderman, or the Hulk. I know Spiderman is popular but how many Spiderman cartoons can one make and not be repetitive. Submariner has plenty of potential and would be at least unique. Anyway Submariner is worth checking out.
