Stingray is a science-fiction television programme; it had a run of 39 episodes during the mid 60s. It was the third of Gerry Anderson's Supermarionation shows and his first show to be filmed in Videcolor. The show follows the adventures of the World Aquanaut Security Patrol, focussing on the exploits of Aquanaut Troy Tempest, captain of the underwater craft Stingray, and his crew.

Other main characters were Commander Sam Shore, Phones Sheridan, Atlanta Shore, Lieutenant Fisher and a beautiful mute girl from under the sea called Marina. Also seen was the evil Titan, his sidekick X20 and the Aquaphibians who were the main ememy of the World Aquanaut Security Patrol. The Aquaphibians were often seen pursuing Stingray in mechanical fish-like craft.

The series was the first of the Gerry Anderson saga that made the use of Facial expressions on the puppets, instead of just having blinker heads like in Fireball XL5. Facial expressions were later used in Thunderbirds. However fewer Facial expressions was used in Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons due to the problem that heads were to small.





  • King Titan - Ruthless ruler of the undersea race of the Aquaphibians.
  • Surface Agent X-2-Zero - Surface agent who lives on a island near Marinville who reports to Titan.
