When the surface of planet Earth begins losing credibility as a viable habitat, a brave crew of researchers boards the Sealab and dives deep into the ocean's depths to seek a new source of sustainability for humankind. If this innovative Adult Swim series looks a little bit familiar, that's because it pipes its dialogue over a blend of new animation and stock footage from the short-lived 1972 cartoon "Sealab 2020."

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this mature-audience-oriented cartoon contains edgy jokes about fat kids, mentally ill people, sex, criminal activity, radiation and cancer, drinking and drugs, and a host of other titillating subjects. Episodes often involve violence, such as when a monster attacks the compound and kills most of the crew. Most of the violence is off screen, but descriptions of blood and gore are vivid.

Sexual Content

References to sex are often oblique and include chauvinistic jokes and borderline sexual harrassment.


Frequent cartoon violence, though more is referenced than shown -- such as a description of an attack victim as having no more face.


Some profanity, including plenty of "hell" and "damn" and the occasional "ass."

Social Behavior

The show's edgy, non-politically correct humor includes jokes about disabilities, the overweight, and affirmative action. There's one African-American character (who is the smartest on the show) and one or two females.
