Stingray:"Treasure Down Below" *Decent Ws Web Rip*

Stingray was Gerry Anderson's third SF supermarionation saga told the adventures of the WASPs (the World Aquanaut Security Patrol) as they explored the oceans and kept the world safe from a variety of perils. The WASP's main weapon was Stingray, a super-sub under the command of Troy Tempest. Troy's copilot was Phones, and they were often joined on missions by Marina, a princess of the undersea kingdom of Pacifica.

Two cave-dwelling ne'er-do-wells are sinking ships to hijack their wealth, and toward the end of the episode, our submarine heroes get captured by the crooks. Marina (conveniently mute) and our hero "Phones" get tied to torture racks and stretched by a human accomplice to the crooks before they are rescued. Our hero loads and fires a cannon at the ceiling collapsing it and squashing the villains.
