Storyline

The World Aquanaut Security Patrol (WASPs) explored the oceans and kept the world safe from a variety of perils. The WASPs' main weapon was Stingray, a super-sub under the command of Troy Tempest. Troy's copilot was Phones, and they were often joined on missions by Marina, a princess of the undersea kingdom of Pacifica. Marina could breathe under water, but was unable to speak. In charge of the WASPs was gruff Commander Shore, whose daughter Atlanta was both a member of his staff and Marina's rival for Troy's affection. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

I like this but I don't know why
8 April 2019 | by OrangieTooDopeSee all my reviews

I've never been able to get into Thunderbirds or the rest of these marionette shows but I enjoy this one. Even though they are the protectors of the sea, they know almost nothing about it. They are constantly encountering new races of under water people they have never heard of and those people know everything about Stingray and WASP and want to destroy them. They have a woman who never speaks and never has anything to do with the story but the song over the end credits is about her. None of it makes any sense but I like it.
