Captain Nemo’s Undersea Adventures

EARLY ENTRY in the endless foreign import animation stable (see AROUND THE WORLD WITH WILLY FOGG) with all those dreaded elements already in place: weird bastardisation of original hero (here sporting – eh? – a beard), unnecessary meddling with the companions (one apparently called Johnny), sassy robot for the youngsters.

    If you watch an episode of this on YouTube, you’ll see it was called The Undersea Adventures of Captain Nemo, the Cap didn’t have a beard but did have a reverse Dickie Davies dark streak in his hair, and I couldn’t spot a robot. Looks like an educational five minuter, a la Sealab. The bastardisation comment is entirely correct, however. Blame Jacques Cousteau.
