This week's "Underwater Adventure" is classic for all you 80s kids out there:

First a Belgian comicbook by Nic Broca in 1982, Snorks became and animated series produced and animated by Hanna-Barbera from 1984-1986. The 65 episode series featured a race of underwater creatures that had snorkle-type growths on their heads that allowed them to propel through the water at fairly high speeds. They have your typical Saturday morning adventures and usually end up learning a leason or two by the end of the episode.
Many people compare the Snorks to the Smurfs, another Hanna-Barbera series that came out a few years earlier. In each show, the race of creatures is small, but that is where the similarities end.
There is not much to say about this show. It came, it was mass-marketed, it was popular, it disappeared. It has not had a DVD release yet, which has saddened many of the show's fans.
