AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Flipper & Lopaka is an animated children's series loosely based on the original 1964 Flipper TV series. In this variant, Flipper saves a young boy, Lopaka, from drowning, and the two of them become friends.

In series one, Flipper and Lopaka defeat the schemes of Dexter, an evil octopus who seeks control of Flipper's underwater city of Quetzo. In series two, Quetzo is discovered by scientist Dr Troy, who threatens its very existence. And in series three, Flipper and Lopaka have to stop modern-day pirates from stealing an underwater treasure, Neptune's Statue, and thereby unleashing an ancient curse.
