29 x 30 minute episodes
Sigmund Ooze is a sea monster. He’s also a huge embarrassment to his family because, unlike a normal sea monster, Sigmund has no desire to scare anybody.
He runs away from home rather than scare people and meets up with Johnny and Scott Stuart.
The three become best friends and Johnny (Johnny Whitaker) and Scott (Scott C. Kolden) keep Sigmund in their clubhouse.
Johnny and Scott spend their time alternately keeping Sigmund from being kidnapped by his family – primarily his brothers, Slurp and Blurp – and keeping him a secret from everyone else.
This Sid and Marty Krofft production wasn’t as trippy as the previous shows the brothers produced.
The first season focused on Sigmund’s relationship with Johnny and Scott, but things started sliding in the second season with the introduction of Rip Taylor as Sigmund’s genie, Sheldon.
The show went downhill fast during the third season when Sheldon’s young nephew, Shelby, arrived.
