OLD STUFF: Under the Sea.

SUPER proud to introduce you to a new Anorak recruit: Saskia Ericson our very own 'Queen of Old Stuff'. I first came across Saskia's impeccable vintage tastes by chance on Pinterest. Check her incredible Pinterest feed here and you will understand why I fell in love with it!

Every couple of weeks, Saskia's will dig deep into the archives of 60s, 70s and 80s kids culture and bring us some gems worth revisiting and sharing with your little ones.

We kick off this new feature with Classic Under the Sea TV shows while we patiently wait for our new issue to be back from the printers. Over to you Saskia! 

For this post, as we are celebrating all things Undersea, let's talk about Sea Monsters! Eek! 
Here are some of our favourite creatures of the deep from classic kid’s TV shows. 

SIGMUND If I was allowed to invite a sea monster over for tea, I’d choose Sigmund! He was friendly, goofy, tentacled and starred in Sigmund and the Sea Monsters (1973–1975), produced by the clever Krofft brothers.  Fun fact: Sigmund and the Sea Monsters might be making a comeback! Click here for more info.

THE AQUAPHIBIANS The scaly, gurgle-voiced Aquaphibians looked scary but were easily outsmarted! They lived in the underwater kingdom of Titanica and featured in Stingray, Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s nautical classic (1964–1965). Fun Fact: Stingray was the first UK TV series to be entirely filmed in colour!

BIGWEED Like Sigmund, Bigweed was also covered in seaweed! He spent his time annoying the Snorks who had little snorkels on their heads and lived in the undersea world of Snorkland. Snorks was a Hanna-Barbera cartoon that ran from 1984-1989.  Fun fact: Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson, voiced Daffney Gillfin, the pink snork.
