Baron Barracuda - Sinister
sea fish with a monocle on the live-action children's marionette
adventure DIVER DAN/SYN/1961.
Baron Barracuda and his stooge sidekick Trigger Fish (who called
the Baron "Boss") lived in
the Sargasso Sea in a cave by Teetering Rock. They continually
hatched plans to take over the bottom of the ocean.
Their main adversaries were the only two humans on the program:
intrepid ocean explorer Diver Dan (Frank Freda) and his mermaid
Miss Minerva (Suzanne Turner).
Other fish marionettes (voiced by Allen Swift) included: Finley
Haddock, Gabby the Clam; Gill-Espie, a bongo-playing beatnik
fish; Glow Fish who lived by the Bottomless Pit; Goldie the
Goldfish; Hammer-head Shark; Hermit Crab; Doc Sturgeon; Georgie Porgie; Sawfish Sam; Scoutfish who sported an Indian tomahawk and feathers; Sea Biscuit
the Seahorse; and Skipper Kipper..
