Space Ghost in his 40s is no longer a superhero, and now he even goes by his real name Tad Ghostal. However, to remain in the spot-light he has started his own late-night talk show filmed ... See full summary »
C. Martin Croker,
The year is 2021. Deep below the ocean's surface, looms a vast, magnificently high-tech compound: Sealab. A multi-national scientific station with an annual budget in the trillions, dedicated to the research and exploration of man's final frontier... Sealab's crew is charged with exploring the possibility of underwater colonization. As the Earth's surface, by this time, has gotten just generally crowded, hot, and icky. However, as most government-funded agencies usually are, Sealab is manned by a motley collection of malcontents and screw-ups who were unfit for work in the private sector. They really don't get any research done, but instead spend their time bickering among themselves. Or just plain goofing off. The crew have manipulated their luckless leader, Captain Murphy, into submission, and are content to ride the government clock, raking in fat, hazardous-duty paychecks. Written by
Two episodes ("Dearly Beloved Seed" and "Butchslap") are credited as being written by "mcheshpants420". He was apparently a fan who frequented the message boards on the shows official site with the user name "mcheshpants420." Supposedly, the producers actually accepted his script ideas. It was later uncovered that meheshpants420 was actually Chris Ward aka MC Chris, who voiced Hesh and contributed to the show regularly. It was all part of an elaborate joke. See more »
In "Butchslap", when Quinn is doing his demonic laughter, his lips move more as though he is speaking rather than laughing. See more »
[the crew discusses what it will be like when they all become robots]
I can chew nails and shoot them out as bullets right?
Nails, chains, you won't have titanium teeth for nothing.
Nails are like candy to robots, and we'll eat tires instead of licorice.
No we won't.
Maybe YOU won't!

After the credits in the episode where Debbie wants a baby, we see Debbie in bed and Captain Murphy with his suit partially removed, indicating that he is going to have sex with Debbie. Murphy asks Debbie if she wants his moustache on or off. She replies "Off", but Murphy says "Too bad". See more »
As everyone here so far has said, "Sealab 2021" is just hilarious. What makes this show really brilliant is that the episodes follow no particular rules or format. Anything (or nothing at all) can happen and generally does, whether the crew members are striking each other with sticks; the Captain is feeding his Gremlin-like pet "Gloop" liquor, causing it to multiply; or Sealab is invaded by the "Bizarro" crew. (Now that was just friggin' hilarious, with the word "Bizarro" repeated about 100 times.) Enjoy. Adult cartoons don't get much better than this.
