Sealab 2020 is an American animated environmental TV series produced by Hanna-Barbera and created by Alex Toth. It ran in 1972 on NBC's Saturday morning children's programming block, airing 13 episodes that spanned one season. The series later reaired on Boomerang in its heyday.
The series was made with intent of making viewers ecoligically aware of marine life, as well as encourage them to protect the enviroment. Although not particularly successful, Cartoon Network's Adult Swim revived the series in the form of Sealab 2021, an adult parody that was mostly made up of stock footage from the original series, running from 2000 to 2005.
The entire series has been released on DVD.
