Saturday Morning's Forgotten Heroes: Troy Tempest and the crew of Stingray (1964)

Gerry Anderson's Stingray marks its 50th anniversary this year. However, it's been so long since the series has been seen on American screens, one wonders if anyone actually remembers it.

Set in the year 2065, Stingray is the name of a superboat operated by Troy Tempest and his assistant, Phones. Many of the 39 episodes dealt with repeated threats from under the sea by King Titan. There's also romance in the air, as Tempest is in the midst of a love triangle with Atlanta, the daughter of General Storm, and Marina, a slave he'd rescued from Titan. Marina can't speak, but there must've been something that made her attractive to Tempest.

Here's the intro:

I barely remember seeing this series, if at all. To be fair, we'll do without a rating.
