Storyline

Sigmund is a sea monster. He's also a tremendous embarrassment to his family because, unlike a normal sea monster, Sigmund has no desire to scare anybody. He runs away from home rather than scare people, and meets up with Johnny and Scott. The three become best friends and Johnny and Scott keep Sigmund in their clubhouse. Johnny and Scott spend their time alternately (A) keeping Sigmund from being kidnapped by his family and (B) keeping him a secret from everyone else. Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Another Krofft Hit
16 July 2003 | by SargebriSee all my reviews

Though this one wasn't as trippy as the previous shows the Kroffts produced. The first season was especially good because it pretty much focused on Sigmund's relationship with Johnny and Scott. However, they blew it in the second season when they introduced Rip Taylor as Sigmund's gennie Sheldon and then things went really downhill the third season when they introduced Sheldon's nephew Shelby, played by Sparky Marcus. However, this show was pretty decent and quite enjoyable.
