Storyline

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 Matt Thompson

A laugh riot..
22 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Part of Cartoon Networks Adult Swim Line up. It is the year 2021 and the members of the Sealab are crazy. In one episode, Debbie's biological clock goes off and she desperately searches for a suitable mate to father her child. Odd thing is part of the time she has a baby dolphin under her arm for no reason adding to the absurdity of the episode. In another episode a flesh eating alien infests the Sealab. But my favorite episode yet features the head of Sealab uses a bouey antenna to create a pirate radio station and becomes a shock jock. But through new laws, the FCC has the right to blow up pirate radio stations at will. The FCC officers hunt the ocean for the sealab cursing like sailors in the process(bleeped out of course). This is a great cheesy little cartoon that can get addictive.
