I happened to catch the theme tune to the Gerry Anderson TV show ‘Stingray’ earlier today and it had me wondering if the show had ever been featured here at The Retroist before. I went searching for a Youtube link to the awesome intro but was surprised to find that Stingray has an alter-ego!
In 1985, NBC aired its own Stingray, starring Nick Mancuso, who plays the mysterious character known only as Ray, whose trademark is a black 1965 Corvette Sting Ray.
I’ve never heard of the show before but it looks a lot of fun, as you can tell from this collection of clips from the pilot.
If you like the show, you might be interested in reading the pilot episode script here.
Call me Ray. Short for Stingray? Short for Raymond!
