Sigmund and the Sea Monsters (1973)

I'm not one to throw the word masterpiece around like candy, but SATSM broke so much new ground, it made the rest of the Saturday morning shows look like dog shit. Billy Barty astonishes as Sigmund Ooze, the sea monster who could not (or would not?) scare. And did we really know how a sea monster moved before Sharon Baird performed Big Daddy Ooze to perfection (his voice was provided by a variety of different performers)? Thankfully, this series is out on DVD, so now I have something to do every night this week.
