Operation Petticoat

Show Summary

Operation Petticoat, based on the 1959 movie by the same title, starred a post-Gomez John Astin heading up a large ensemble cast including Jamie Lee Curtis in one of her first roles.

Called into duty because every ship was needed during WWII, the USS Sea Tiger, a pink submarine, patroled the South Pacific with the mission to rescue downed airmen and sink ships when possible.

The pink color resulted from the sub having to set to sea after the depot with it's exterior paint was bombed by the enemy.

But the color would soon become a positive thing after the crew rescued a company of nurses who had been stranded on an island.

After the show's first season, nearly all the cast was replaced and was cancelled after just 10 episodes into it's second season.

  • This show was given a bad rap, so I was surprised when I saw an episode and actually found it funny.

    I could have done without the constant bleeping whenever the engineer cursed, but other than that the show had potential.



    I found it pretty funny. I\'ve only seen a few episodes from the second season, but what I saw was pretty good. I don\'t think it could hold water today (no pun intended), but it had a nice cast and some good lines.



    One of my favorite episodes involved the Japanese pilot who is put into the torpedo tube, which had been made into an iron lung. The Captain sees a Japanese ship approaching, and he orders the crew to fire a torpedo. When he is reminded that the Japanese prisoner is in the tube with the line, \"unless you want to fire the pilot, sir....\" The Captain bursts into laughter. It\'s just hard to describe the scene, but it looked spontaneous. He jokes, \"Fire the pilot.\" I thought it was a funny moment.moreless
