Sigmund & The Sea Monsters: Season One
In 1973, after several successful Saturday morning TV series, Sid and Marty Krofft came up with this sitcom about two brothers who discover and befriend a little sea monster named Sigmund. This series would not have been out of place in prime time at the time with shows like My Favourite Martian, I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched all dealing with the problem of keeping someone unusual out of the public eye. Johnny Whittaker (Family Affair) and Scott Kolden starred as the brothers who did everything they could to protect Sigmund from their nosy housekeeper (Mary Wickes) as well as his own sea-monster family, who were out to get him because he wasn’t scary enough. This new DVD set contains all 17 first-season episodes on three DVDs, three of which contain fun audio commentaries from the two lead actors (who also contribute a new 20-minute interview), downloadable MP3s of 11 songs from the series and more.
