Merman & Mermaids

Namor the Sub-Mariner - Merman featured on the animated anthology series THE MARVEL SUPERHEROES/SYN/1966-1968. The program was produced by Steven  Krantz of Krantz Films and Bob Lawrence of Grantray-Lawrence Animation.

Namor the Sub-Mariner

The Sub-Mariner shared the stage with Iron Man, Mighty Thor, Captain American and the Incredible Hulk as they alternately starred in 195 six-minute cartoons based on characters appearing in Marvel Comics.  The Sub-mariners fought such villains as Dr. Doom, Attuma and Warlord Krang. John Vernon provided the voice of the Sub-Mariner.

The Sub-Mariner is the son of Leonard McKenzie, Captain of the U.S. ice breaker Oracle, and Princess Fen of the Royal House of Atlantis.

Known also as Namor MacKenzie and Subby, the Sub-Mariner is a hybrid mutant with great physical strength, the ability to breath in and out of water and fly with help of small wings on his feet.

Created in 1939 by Bill Everett, the Sub-Mariner character has been seen as both a hero and villain over the years. He fought the Nazi's in the 1940s and ecological violators in the 60s and 70s. A theatrical movie based on his character is scheduled for release in 2008.

The Sub-Mariner segment opened with these lyrics:

Theme Song Lyrics

Stronger than a whale
He can swim anywhere
He can breathe under water
And go flying through the air
The noble Sub Mariner

Prince of the deep
So, beware you deadly demons
Lord Namor of Atlantis,
Is the Prince of the Deep.
