Sigmund and the Sea Monsters (1973–1975) was one of many shows created by television producers Sid and Marty Krofft. It's about Sigmund who is a sea monster who is a tremendous embarrassment to his family because, unlike a normal sea monster, Sigmund has no desire to scare anybody. He runs away from home rather than scare people, and meets up with Johnny and Scott. The three become best friends and Johnny and Scott keep Sigmund in their clubhouse. Johnny and Scott spend their time alternately (A) keeping Sigmund from being kidnapped by his family and (B) keeping him a secret from everyone else.
In this episode, It's Halloween and Sigmund, who everyone believes is a boy disguised in a sea monster costume, discovers the joys of trick or treating along with Johnny and Scott. Meanwhile the Ooze family learns that Sigmund has won a TV contest.
I was never a big fan of Sid and Marty Krofft's H.R. Pufnstuf (I despised it with a passion) but I always loved Sigmund and Land of the Lost and I read online that the Krofft siblings also designed the characters and sets for Hanna-Barbera's Banana Splits series which I also loved as a kid. I remember watching these shows in the early to mid 80's when I would stay home from school sick.
