It's hijinks on the high seas when a U.S. submarine has to take on a collection of female nurses. Somehow or another, the sub gets painted pink in the process.Written by
Sixteen years before appearing in this series, first season regulars John Astin and Yvonne Wilder appeared in the movie West Side Story (1961). Wilder, credited in the film as Yvonne Othon, played one of Maria's friends. Astin played the neighborhood dance chaperone. See more »
While a lot of people are familiar with the John Astin version most don't even realize there was a second season with an entirely new cast and many new characters. I loved the Astin version when I was a kid but don't even remember Season Two.
It's hard to picture Montooth's Bender replacing Lt. Holden.
Nor does it seem to have the same humor and the Pink Submarine bit was getting rather old.
Worse they turned the Sub from a combat sub into a glorified hospital ship.
They should have let it go when the first cast was cut.
