So I have this memory of a really creepy kids series in the ’80s. I don’t remember much other than it creeped me out. I want to say that it aired in a block of shows with one of the other shows about kids being lost in a labyrinth through time. Maybe it was on a very early version of Nickelodeon. The series I’m thinking about centered on a couple of kids who lived near an ocean or large lake. There were strange sea creatures in the lake. For some reason I picture a lair the monsters lived in that the kids infiltrated. To escape capture I want to say they slid through a slide-like tunnel that the monsters used to get around the town. I don’t think that the series was made in America. It was either Canadian, English, Australian or New Zealand. It’s been driving me crazy to remember what this series was and if it is available anywhere. Sound familiar?
UNK SEZ: Chad, you’re not thinking of SIGMUND AND THE SEA MONSTERS are you? Well, if that’s not it then I don’t know what it could be. Does this show sound familiar to anybody else out there? Let us (and Chad) know!
UPDATE: It looks like commenter seedymckenzie has found the movie! It’s called UNDER THE MOUNTAIN (1982) and its from New Zealand. Good going speedy! (Please see the comments for Chad’s confirmation). To be honest, it looks much, much, more traumatizing than SIGMUND!!
