The Most Obscure Sealab 2021 Question Ever

The “Stimutacs” episode is framed by a scene of Sparks in the mini-sub.

On the soundtrack as he delivers those lines is what sounds like a synthesized sting chord that slowly crescendoes and then resolves into a major chord and decrescendoes. This is a sample from something else–maybe a science program–from the 60’s or 70’s. Does anyone know a) what the hell I’m talking about or b) where the damned sample comes from? This episode was on last night and it bugged the hell out of me. I woke up abour 4 AM still trying to figure it out.


Have you tried the Adult Swim board? I thin some of the peopel that work on the shows post there.

I know that the closeup of the cells and eyes dialating and such was a nod to “Requiem for a Dream” maybe the sample was used there as well.
