The future seems like only yesterday…

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964-1968): Set in the future of the 1970s/1980s, the series centres on the atomic submarine Seaview and its crew whose secret mission is to defend the Earth. It was based on the 1961 film of the same name.

The stamp design, poster and text are from one of my favourite student projects. Each stamp depicts an iconic science fiction TV series from the 1960s. For a recap on the project, click here.

    love it – and never missed an episode as a kid either. I had a plastic model of the sub that would rise and fall in the bathtub. 😉

    I didn’t realize the show was set in the future. I have watched a few episodes for the first time this year. It is a strange show – very strange. It is certainly as spacious sub!

    I remember this show clearly and also the Mad Magazine spoof called “Voyage to See What’s on the Bottom.” Sadly, I went to the store earlier tonight because I was out of bread. I bought numerous sandwich items (mustard etc) but forgot (yup) bread. Alas.

      I don’t know… I don’t remember it (I enjoyed watching the intro on your blog though). It’s possible it didn’t find a slot on our ONE television station ; ) and I watched most of my 1960s TV in the ’70s. There are several other glaring omissions from my stamp set because I had to cap it at 12… so I also don’t have ‘A for Andromeda’, ‘The Outer Limits’ or ‘Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons’. Sorry.
