It might not have had the numerous drug references seen and heard in their other shows (i.e., H.R. Pufnstuf), but Sigmund And The Sea Monsters is still one of the most memorable creations of Sid and Marty Krofft. The show was about two young boys who befriend a sea monster named Sigmund after the beast's family disowns him for refusing to scare people.
Now if that doesn’t sound like a great premise for a children’s movie, we don’t know what does. The possibilities are endless for a sharp filmmaker to come along and create an imaginative world filled with crazy monster designs and underwater lairs. If you hire a director with a flare for visuals and fairy tales, much like Guillermo del Toro, then Sigmund And The Sea Monsters could be more relevant than ever.
