Did You Know?


Although uncredited, famed comic book artist Joe Orlando (1927-1998), the associate publisher of Mad magazine, figures into the development of this TV series. The unusual designs of the live-action characters in "The Amazing Live Sea-Monkeys" are based on fantasy characters created by Orlando for a series of well-remembered 1960s/1970s comic book ads. Sea monkeys are a variety of Artemia (crustaceans such as Brine Shrimp or Seed Shrimps), successfully marketed as a "pet" product due to the appealing underwater fantasies depicted by Orlando in his cartoon ad illustrations. Photos of actress-model Yolanda Signorelli, wearing her crystal "Sea-Bubble", were packaged with Sea Monkey products during the 1960s, and her image was a partial inspiration for Orlando's rendering of the female Sea Monkeys. Orlando's ad art has been reprinted in Susan Barclay's book, "The Ultimate Guide to Sea Monkeys" (2001). See more »

23 June 2005 | by BOLTZ2USee all my reviews

i agree with the last reviewer that the "the amazing live sea monkeys" were awesome and the success of the show is due to one person in particular, the GREAT BRILLIANT, TALENTED AND "AMAZING", peter pitofsky, THAT DUDE IS THE CURLY OF OUR GENERATION. i can only hope and pray that "the amazing live sea monkeys" will come out on a deluxe DVD edition set with some way coooool extras and i'm sure they got hours of peter pitofsky's hilarious outtakes, that alone is worth the price of the set. please get this out on video now mr. mcnamara or who ever has control...CBS television MAYBE, BUT JUST GET THIS OUT!!!!!!!! oh...the gifted impressionist who does the "jerry lewis', "dean martin" etc. is john mariano, he was a semi regular on "caroline in the city" i loved his character on the show and was miffed why they stopped using him after a few appearances as he surely was one of the most funny when he was in a scene, but then Hollywood never really realizes great talent...with sean macnamara's success as a big feature director maybe he can do a full lengh feature of "the amazing live sea monkeys" only if peter pitofsky comes back and hey make john mariano one of the other sea monkeys...cooooooooool
