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 Anonymous

|Goofs||Merv Griffin makes mention that he is live from the eye of Hurricane Hazel. Hurricane Hazel was the worst hurricane of the 1954 Atlantic hurricane season and one of the worst hurricanes of the 20th century. Due to the severity of the hurricane, the name was retired and therefore would never have been a hurricane name in the year the movie supposedly took place. See more »|

T.R. Hollister: Never mind the scientific lecture, Miller. Just what is this crazy project you dragged me down here to see?
Fred Miller: Mr. Hollister, this project meets the most important challenge of the future.
T.R. Hollister: Never mind the future, just give me the past. And oysters.
T.R. Hollister: There she is!
T.R. Hollister: Where?
Fred Miller: Right there. Dead ahead.
T.R. Hollister: Well, I see where is it, but what is it? It looks like a large onion.
Fred Miller: That's what we call it: "The Green Onion".
T.R. Hollister: $200,000 for an underwater onion?
Fred Miller: It's a house. A completely self sufficient, underwater house.
T.R. Hollister: A house for what? Flounders?
Fred Miller: Underwater living is coming, T.R. It has to. At the present population growth in the predictable future, there'll be one human being for every square foot of land on Earth. Can you imagine what that means? This is your future living space
[he uses his hands to indicate a square foot]
Fred Miller: unless...
[he points to the Green Onion]
T.R. Hollister: Well, people weren't meant to live underwater.
Fred Miller: Or fly, or go to the moon. We can't continue to ignore 71% of the Earth's surface, T.R., just because it's underwater. Wait till you see the inside!
