Watch Sealab 2021

Sealab 2021 is an animated show that was run as part of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block, which featured a number of shows that were not meant for children. Using original, stock footage of the old series Sealab 2020, Sealab 2021 shows the comedic downfall of the underwater lab that happen in the next year.

Sealab 2021 doesn't have a running plot, and continuity isn't something the series was overly concerned with. Many episodes end with the destruction of the entire underwater city, only to have it back and in working order again in the next episode. The same thing happens with the deaths of several characters, who are alive and well in the next episode without explanation or, really, without any mention at all. Mostly the show focuses on parodying the original series, showing the professional frictions and absolute absurdities that were simply accepted in a cartoon produced in the year 1972.

Sealab 2021 Full Episode Guide

  • In a spoof of those tacky TV specials, Legacy of Laughter is a look back on five years of Sealab. The special features a tribute to the late Harry Goz.

  • All the water around Sealab has disappeared, and left Sealab high and dry. Once again its up to Quinn to save the day.

  • Quinn and Stormy are stuck in a cave with only 10 minutes of oxygen as Sealab burns.

  • The police want Captain Shanks in a story that is revealed in reverse (a la Pulp Fiction). But it involves a monster, a plan to improve the world, and more Grizzlebee's commercials.

  • An eccentric trillionaire named Max Stone (a parody of Richard Branson) buys Sealab and starts annoying the crew.

  • Marco convinces Debbie to give up her slutty ways through a pep talk, leading her to dump Quinn and find religion. Sparks recognizes the pep talk from a 60's show, which leads an angry, drunken Quinn to call the network on the fugitive TV star Marco.

  • The gang finds out that Sealab was built on an ancient Indian burial ground and is now sinking into the ocean floor. John Bear, Sealab's only resident Native American, is the last hope. But in order to save Sealab, Shank's must agree to turn the Mess Hall into a casino. But once the casino opens John Bear still won't stop the sinking (or let Debbie have a lounge show).

  • Marco, who died a few episodes ago, returns to Sealab.

  • Debbie Love decides to help Sharko pass the Civil Servant test after Shanks refuses to hire him. She asks Quinn to help, but he refuses because of a racial comment Sharko made towards him. Meanwhile, Hesh and Stormy try to grow a magic beanstalk.

  • A "green fever" epidemic breaks out in Sealab just in time for Debbie Dupree's 5th 30th birthday bash. Meanwhile, as Quinn tries to save the victims, Stormy and Sparks try to sneak the uninvited Hesh into Debbie's party.

  • After Marco's death, a therapist named Joy helps the crew with their emotions, but Quinn suspects that something isn't right.

  • Shanks takes the whole crew out of Sealab and onto an island to hunt for the legendary Chupacabra. However the island's Chupacabra, tree-cobras, and man-eating trees have other plans for the gang.

  • Enter the sinister and mysterious world of the Neptunati, a secret organization that holds the fate of the world in its clutches. And which also, for some reason, has Shanks as a member.

  • Sealab secedes! (From whom, and lots of other pertinent issues, to be discussed more fully during the actual episode.)

  • The crew learns that Captain Shanks is a member of a world-manipulating secret society, the Brotherhood of Neptune. They all are initiated (the process includes long-winded oaths and drinking human blood through a crazy straw.) Soon, Stormy takes Shanks new mystical trinket, the Trident of Neptune, for a joyride. Can Shanks and the gang stop him from waking the dreaded Kraken?

  • When Stormy is fed up with paying taxes, he convinces Shanks to Captain Shanks to declare Sealab a sovereign nation. They call it "Sealabia" and acquire nuclear arms from England. Soon everyone gets the same idea and form separate countries, which leads to a (what else) nuclear war that threatens Sealab with utter annihilation.

  • When Shanks has a brain tumor, he refuses treatment. Quinn, Debbie Dupree, and Stormy must travel inside Shanks to cure him. Meanwhile, Debbie Love agrees to go on a date with the dying Shanks.

  • In this episode written by Sealab fan mcheshpants420, Captain Shanks wants to pass on the Shanks name by having a child, but he's had no luck in meeting women. Instead he plans to get Hesh and Debbie Dupree to marry each other, have a kid, and then he'll adopt their kid as his own. But when the big day arrives, drug abuse, jealousy, gunplay, Matrix parodies, and other craziness ensues.

  • In a follow up to the pilot episode, Quinn gives the crew robotic bodies. Soon, chaos ensues.

  • The famous Beck Bristow visits Sealab.
