Two aliens steal a doomsday device from another world and abscond to earth. The device is Mr. Armageddon, a living embodiment of destruction who intends to destroy the planet. A ragtag group of high school students stand in his way.
Marine scientist Fred Miller designs the world's first underwater home, but when the business magnate funding his work threatens to end the project, Miller volunteers to live in it with his own family to prove it's practical. The underwater clan includes his water-phobic wife and his daughter and son, who are part of a rock and roll band. They bring along the lead singer and drummer. Along the way, they have to contend with a competing engineer who promises to mine the ocean floor for the businessman. A record producer likes their music and books them on TV, leading the kids to try to escape to the surface.Written by

When taking the band's demo tape from the undersea house to Myrtle's boat on the surface, Tommie puts the reel into a plastic bag and folds it over to keep the tape dry. But when he dives into the water, the bag is clearly unfolded (open), which would allow water to enter. See more »

Never mind the scientific lecture, Miller. Just what is this crazy project you dragged me down here to see?
Mr. Hollister, this project meets the most important challenge of the future.
Never mind the future, just give me the past. And oysters.
There she is!
Right there. Dead ahead.

Hello Down There' was a fun, campy adventure. The movie was a cross between `Lost in Space' and the `Partridge Family' but with lots of water, a predecessor of `Sea Quest DSV'. The plot was about a family who lived at the bottom of the ocean and the adventures and friends they made, both human and aquatic, specifically a dolphin. The songs were lively and fun for kids to sing. No `R' rating here. Several well known stars participated in the movie, such as Ken Berry, Richard Dreyfuss, Merv Griffin, Janet Leigh, Roddy McDowall, Lee Meredith, Charlotte Rae, and Tony Randall. I find `Hello Down There' to be a fond, fun memory from my childhood, and would love to see it released on DVD as a family classic film.
