The show was based on the 1959 movie with Cary Grant and Tony Curtis.

Set during WW2, the show followed the misadventures of a sub crew (with some nurses and plenty of double entendres) aboard a pink colored submarine.
John Astin was the star for the first season (1977) but just about the entire cast was changed in the second season, in an attempt to keep the ratings afloat. Ha! Little pun there...

Anyway, the show was canned after two seasons.

A little trivia, a really young Jamie Lee Curtis was one of the nurses in the first season.
