Amazon Studios has ordered Sid & Marty Krofft's Sigmund and the Seas Monster to series. The new series, basedon the the Saturday morning show from the 1970s, will be geared towards kids 6 to 11 and centers on brothers Johnny and Scotty and their cousin Robyn as they befriend a friendly young sea-monster named Sigmund. The young sea-monster has escaped his old life and his brothers Slurp and Burp and takes up residence in the kids clubhouse. Besides his dysfunctional siblings, Sigmund must avoid the sea-monster hunter Captain Barnabas.
If you want to know why my generation is the way it is… look at what we had for children's shows.
The series stars David Arquette as Captain Barnabas. Garrett Frawley and Brian Turner (Santa Baby) wrote the new teleplay based on the classic series. The pilot episode is currently available on Amazon Prime.
