Sealab 2020 was set in the far future (jinkies! only 7 years away now) and centered around an undersea colony of 250 researchers and explorers led by Captain Murphy and Dr. Paul Williams. Williams was voiced by Ross Martin (The Wild Wild West) and other cast members included Ann Jillian (It’s A Living) and Pamelyn Ferdin (A Boy Named Charlie Brown). In 2000, Cartoon Network ran a successful parody of the show entitled Sealab 2021.
