Stingray is a British children's television series produced by Gerry Anderson and Sylvia Anderson. The show stars Ray Barrett as the voice of Captain Troy Tempest, a member of the World Aquanaut Security Patrol (WASP). The show follows the adventures of Troy and the crew of the Stingray, a futuristic submarine designed to explore and protect the world's oceans from various threats.

Lois Maxwell voices the character of Lieutenant Atlanta Shore, another member of WASP and Troy's love interest. Robert Easton plays Phones, the Stingray's radio operator and comic relief character. Don Mason provides the voice of WASP's leader, Commander Sam Shore, and David Graham voices the Stingray's onboard computer, aptly named "Aquaphibian."

The show, which aired from 1964 to 1965, was an instant hit with children and adults alike. Its stunning underwater and action sequences, combined with cutting-edge puppetry and special effects, set the show apart from other productions of the time.

The series begins with WASP learning of the existence of a hostile underwater civilization known as the Aquaphibians, led by the villainous King Titan. The Aquaphibians seek to conquer the surface world by attacking ships and underwater cities. It is up to Troy and the crew of the Stingray to stop them and protect humanity.

Throughout the series, we see the Stingray and her crew face off against a variety of aquatic threats, from sea monsters to robotic submarines. The show's innovative use of miniatures and models bring the underwater world to life in a way that was previously unseen on television.

But the show isn't just about action and adventure. The characters of Stingray are fully fleshed out, with complex personalities and relationships that develop over time. We see Troy and Atlanta's relationship evolve from a professional one to a romantic one, adding an emotional depth to the show.

Stingray became a cultural phenomenon and its influence can be seen in many shows that followed. The show's theme song, written by Barry Gray, is still instantly recognizable to many and has been covered by various artists over the years.

Overall, Stingray remains a beloved classic of British television, with its combination of action, adventure, and character development appealing to audiences of all ages. Its place in television history is secure, cementing Gerry Anderson's status as a pioneer in the world of puppetry and special effects.

Stingray is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (54 episodes). The series first aired on October 4, 1964.
