Waterville Gang

Network: CTV Television Network

Broadcast Run: 1972 to 1973

Broadcast Medium: Television

Len Carlson, Franz Russell, Julie Amato, Sid Brown and Donna Miller were some of the Canadian actors who provided the voices for a fishy bunch of underwater puppet characters who made up the Waterville Gang – Dodger Dolphin, Angel Fish, Sharky Shark, Eloise “Frenchie” the Seahorse – and Sergeant Perch of the Perch Patrol. Also on hand (as writer Peter Kenter faithfully records) were Pearl Van Oyster, Tucker Turtle and Ace Seagull.

The deep-sea adventures of this group were a two-year feature of CTV’s Saturday morning children’s program block. Waterville Gang played 10:30- 11:00am, and was produced at CTV Toronto affiliate station CFTO-TV.
