Sigmund Ooze - Timid sea monster who appeared on the children
series SIGMUND AND THE SEA MONSTERS/NBC/1973-75.
Disowned by his fellow family of sea monsters because he didn't have the
heart to scare humans, Sigmund Ooze (Billy Barty in a sea monster costume)
wandered away from his home at Dead Man's Point along the beaches of southern
California until he was befriended by the Stuart brothers, Johnny (Johnny
Whitaker) and Scott (Scott Kolden). His new human friends let Sigmund live in
their secret seaside clubhouse
Local ocean resident, Sheldon the Sea Genie also befriends Sigmund and help
him with his troubles which includes Sigmund's family who want to capture him
and force him to be mean. Occasionally, Sheldon's nephew, Shelby will visit and
get involved in the action.
Sigmunds' family - Big Daddy, Burp and
Sigmund's Mom, a.k.a. "Big Momma"
Theme Song Lyrics (from Second
Let me tell you a
tale, a very scary tale
About two boys who were surfing one day
On a very weird beach around Dead Man's Point
Where there are haunted sea caves they say
And strange sea monsters have been sighted there. If you're traveling in
the area Beware! Beware, Beware! Beware!
"Sigmund you're a
rotten sea monster"
disgrace to the family"
"Yea, go out and
scare a human or you're through!"
on the beach,
Johnny and Scott are combing the rocks
Unaware that behind them Sigmund lurked
Prepared to give them a shock
In total surprise the boys
eyed this blob - what can it be? And then it groaned and moved and lo! It
was a monster from the sea
Now Sigmund the sea monster and Johnny and Scott are friends. The finest
friends there ever could be in the land or on the sea.
Now Sigmund the sea monster
and Johnny and Scott are friends. The finest friends there ever could be
in the land or on the sea
