Sharky and George

Broadcast Run: 
1995 to 1998
Broadcast Medium: 

Sharky and George were the underwater equivalent of Sherlock Holmes and his crime-solving partner Watson. These two sea-bed detectives set out each episode to solve the dark deeds perpetrated in their midst. Whether they investigated a pink cloud floating through "Siliclam Valley" or fin-wrestling an escape from "Albatras", Sharky and his little-fish friend George unravelled the knots of the most complicated cases. Egocentric Sharky tended to come up with solutions either through luck or with the help of George whose calm, methodical approach made him the true ace detective. Each episode introduced a variety of other underwater creatures playing good and bad characters.
