A friendly dolphin named flipper is the family pet of a Florida Marine Park ranger and his two sons Sandy and Bud. Every week Sandy and Bud have adventures both in and out of the water with the brave and resourceful Flipper.
Director: James Clark
The Firing Line - Part I: Mistaking a Park Service termination notice for the firing of their father, Sandy and Bud determine to find him a new job so they will not have to leave Coral Key. The false rumor that Porter has lost his job circulates around the town as the boys go on their job hunt. Porter, who is away on a wildlife survey has no idea what his sons are doing. In their search, the boys cut across a naval firing range and become trapped among the targets as shells explode all around them.
The Firing Line - Part II: While cutting across the firing range to reach the Naval base in hopes of finding a job for their father, Bud and Sandy and Flipper became trapped among the targets in the middle of firing exercises. Porter returns from a wildlife survey to discover the plight of his sons. He races his launch into a sea of shell fire and geyser explosions to rescue them. They manage to pull Flipper from the water. Porter signals the Navy to cease fire by creating a radar disturbance.
Flipper’s Underwater Museum: An industrial spy takes a sonar device from Ulla that has been entrusted to her by an electronics company for field testing her submarine. In his attempts to elude Ulla and Porter, the spy stumbles onto Bud and Flipper's latest business venture, an underwater museum. The crook pays Bud for a tour through the museum and gets into scuba equipment in time to be underwater when Ulla and Porter pass by. He hides the devise in the museum, but not before Flipper, lurking near, sees him and eventually foils the spy's attempts to recover the piece of equipment.
Deep Waters: When Porter dives into the depths with Ulla in her submarine for a survey of the ocean floor, the tiny craft snaps its propeller on the rocky choral, stranding them under 150 feet of water. As Porter prepares to evacuate the sub, he discovers the hatch is jammed. Flipper, who tags along, swims past the sub's port, giving Ulla and Porter hope for rescue. Flipper races for the Rick's dock where he manages to attract Bud and Sandy's attention. The boys follow Flipper to the spot. Sandy dives with Flipper into the ocean without sighting the stricken craft. As the boys are leaving, Flipper appears with the broken prop in his mouth. This time Sandy dives and spots the sub. He returns to radio for the Coast Guard. The boys wait anxiously for help to arrive.
Devil Ray: Flipper befriends a manta ray whose appearance terrorizes divers swimming in Coral Key Park. Ranger Ricks believes the ray harmless and rides the huge creature beneath the surface to demonstrate. When the Ranger is ordered to destroy the manta, he compromises by capturing the ray and removing it to the Gulf Stream area. Because of this, Flipper thinks his human friends betrayed him.
Cap’n Flint: The government is conducting some tests that involve an enormous underwater explosion. Bud's friend Robin and her parrot Cap'n. Flint are visiting and they decide to go watch the tests. Flipper is put in his pen to prevent his curiosity from luring him into the danger zone, and Cap'n Flint is left to keep him company. But Flint unties the rope that holds the raft he's perched on and he drifts off right into the test area. Flipper escapes to go after him. Porter must do a daring rescue to save them both because the explosion is on an automatic count-down with only minutes to go.
Flipper’s New Friends - Part I: Flipper takes new friends on an astounding journey! The very special bond that Bud and Sandy have forged with Flipper will always exist, but they're going away to school, leaving Flipper feeling lonely and sad. Luckily, a new family with two young children moves into Coral Key and makes fast friends with the world's smartest dolphin.
Flipper’s New Friends - Part II: In this dramatic second half, the kids unwittingly travel into the alligator infested Everglades, and are stranded when their boat springs a leak. It's an adventure that'll keep the whole family on the edge of their seats as Flipper tries to save the children from disaster.
300 Feet Below: Dr. Bill Darmon is attacked by a shark while skin-diving off Coral Key Park and Marine Preserve. Struggling back aboard his boat, he radios to Porter Ricks to bring a rare blood type that can save his life. Po and Sandy head to sea in a speedboat, while a Coast Guard helicopter flies the blood from Miami. In an attempt to transfer the blood from helicopter to ship, the valuable container is dropped and falls into the ocean's depths 300 feet below. Only one course is left to Porter Ricks. If Flipper can be brought to the scene, he may be able to dive and find the container as Bud and Sandy have taught him.
Red Hot Car: Porter Ricks has dumped a number of junked cars into the ocean around Coral Key Marine Preserve to provide a haven for fish in the area. When Sandy and Bud, accompanied by Flipper, go diving near the wrecks, they discover another care with bullet holes in the windshields. Learning the car has been discovered, the culprits return to blow up the evidence of their crime. When the boys investigate further, against their father's orders, they become trapped in the car watching a time bomb that is set to go off in 15 minutes.
S.O.S. Dolphin: Porter Ricks is forced to close the Coral Key Park and Marine Preseve when deadly scorpion fish are discovered in the area. Dr. Rothwell, a marine biologist, arrives to survey the area in a two-man submarine, and then in scuba gear. An inquisitive Flipper distracts Rothwell's attention and the scientist is stung by the deadly fish. When Rothwell struggles back into the submarine and falls unconscious, Flipper returns to search for Sandy and Bud.
The Gulf Between: Beautiful Kathryn Terrence visits Porter Ricks just in time to spoil his plans for a water polo game with Sandy, Bud and Flipper and Bud is convinced that she is trying to trick his father into marrying her. Happy in his life with Po, Sandy and Flipper near the water, Bud sets out to prove that no landlubber like Kathryn could ever replace his real mother.
Dolphin Love - Part I: Flipper falls in love with another dolphin, much to Bud's puzzlement, and swims about the park with his new girlfriend until Ted Marlowe mistakes the female dolphin for a shark and spears her. With Ted is Rita Ellis who insists Ted tells Porter. Ted refuses and Flipper manages to bring aid to his friend. When Porter arrives, he quickly removes the spear from the wounded dolphin, being careful to leave the barb for removal by surgery. He loads the dolphin aboard his launch, and speeds away, leaving Flipper to worry about the outcome of his lady love.
Dolphin Love - Part II: Flipper is concerned over the outcome of an operation on his girlfriend, who was speared by Ted Marlow. Ted thought the dolphin was a shark, but still, he had no right to hunt within the park. Flipper's thoughts turn to the person who speared his lady love. The otherwise playful dolphin seeks revenge by splashing water onto Ted and yakking loudly at him when he comes near the Ricks' dock. Finally, Rita Ellis, Ted's girlfriend, informs Porter about the truth. While the group awaits the outcome of the operation, Ted is worried over his fate for hunting inside the park and Flipper is concerned for his girlfriend's life.
City Boy: City boy, Mike Beldon, comes to visit the Ricks' household in Coral Key Park and creates trouble by his lack of concern for water safety. Finally, against Sandy's better judgment, Mike convinces Sandy to go skin-diving into a sunken ship. The boys become trapped below decks with very little air in their tanks. Only when Flipper returns to shore to sound the alarm is there hope that Porter Ricks and Mike's father can save the boys.
Dolphin For Sale: An unscrupulous local fisherman, Dorrie Stone, accidentally observes how Sandy and Bud Ricks are able to summon Flipper by sounding their ancient auto horn. Correctly assuming that Flipper coud fetch a high price anywhere as a trained dolphin, he steals the auto horn and summons Flipper right into his nets. When Stone subsequently contends that Flipper belongs to him as much as anyone, since no one "owns" a dolphin taken in the open sea, Porter Ricks is forced to tell his boys that the man may be on solid legal ground.
Not Necessarily Gospel: Old sea-lubber Hap Gorman fascinates young Bud Ricks with his tall tales of ocean bravery and the boy is convinced that Hap must be the most heroic man alive. When Porter Ricks goes searching for a gang of lobster poachers who have invaded the Coral Park Reserve, his boat is smashed to a pulp and Po barely escapes with his life. Bud decides that he and Hap should capture the villains but the old man shrinks with fear. However, Flipper intervenes to help restore Bud's faith in Hap and capture the villains at the same time.
Countdown For Flipper: Sandy and Bud Ricks are instructed to take a shipload of supplies to an island for secret ocean research off Coarl Key and Flipper tags along. While the boys are unloading the boat, Flipper inadvertently gets into an ocean pen where a valuable red snapper, a survivor of the Eniwetok atom tests, is kept. Jim Lorman, a revenge-minded ex- employee for the research center, has just stolen the fish but the authorities mistakenly think Flipper ate it. To the despair of Sandy and Bud, the authorities prepare to dissect Flipper and get their prize specimen back.
Mr. Marvello: Mr. Marvello, a down-and-out ventriloquist thrown out of the Parkey Bros. Circus, wanders into Coral Key Park. Seeing Sandy and Bud playing with Flipper gives Marvello and idea. He'll turn the talented dolphin into a "talking" animal and win back his job at the circus with a sensational new act. Using his ventriloquism, Marvello sets out to convince Sandy and Bud that Flipper can talk and wants to leave Coral Key Park to join the circus.
My Brother Flipper: When Flipper comes to the aid of Alexis Demopoulos, an elderly sponge diver, Alexis believes that, according to the ancient Greek legend, Flipper must be a reincarnation of his brother. Sandy and Bud are inclined to go along with Alexis' story, but Porter Ricks is more interested in something else. Alexis is poaching the sponges within the territory of Coral Key Park and Marine Preserve.
Second Time Around: Pretty young water-ski champion Linda Granville shrinks with terror when Sandy shows her a picture he took while she was performing. Sandy discovers that Linda has been in an accident and is now paralyzed. Linda is so depressed that she will not even leave Coral Key Park when hurricane warnings go up, and she and her mother are almost killed. Only when she strikes up a friendship with Flipper and sees the dolphin in peril is there a chance that she will change her attitude and work toward rehabilitation of her legs.
Danger: Bud and Sandy, on a trip with Hap Gorman to his "secret" fishing grounds, board an abandoned boat -- not knowing that a hidden charge of dynamite is about to blow it to pieces. Hap had rented the fishing boat to Dick Johnson and his son, Tim, unaware of their plan to blow it up and make it look as though they had disappeared. When Bud and Sandy, disbelieving Hap's tall fishing tales, trick him into taking them to his fishing spot, they accidentally discover the plot -- but their lives are placed in jeopardy.
Lady And The Dolphin - Part I: Congresswoman Helen Browning comes to visit Coral Key Park and Marine Preserve to decide whether government funds should be appropriated to keep the park open. Porter Ricks, Sandy and Bud do their best to give the Congresswoman "red carpet" treatment, but everything seems to go wrong. By the end of the day, they are faced with the prospect of losing both the Park, and Flipper, who will be sent to a government research project as a test specimen.
Lady And The Dolphin - Part II: In a "last-ditch" attempt to convince Congresswoman Helen Browning that she should appropriate funds to keep Coral Key Park open, Sandy and Bud Ricks take her skin-diving...against their father's orders. When hurricane-force winds come up, Bud gets separated from Sandy and the Congresswoman who are diving in the underwater park. Only with Flipper's help will Bud be able to find the divers and bring them safely to shore.
The Misanthrope: Sandy, Bud and Flipper decide to become detectives when reports claim that someone has been looting boats in Coral Key Park. The boys think the culprit is suspicious looking Anthony Dauber, who has been anchored in the Park for two weeks without talking to anyone. When they swim out to investigate Dauber's boat, they arrive just in time to meet up with the real robbers, who are doing some investigating of their own.
Flipper’s Bank Account: When Flipper finds a Spanish doubloon on the ocean bottom and brings it to Bud and Sandy, rumors about Spanish Treasures spread quickly and an underwater gold rush ensues. Hundreds of boats and treasure hunters invade Coral Key Park in search of riches. To make matters worse for Ranger Porter Ricks, Bud and Hap Gorman join the gold rush themselves, and become stranded on a coral reef.
Slingshot: Ulla, Bud and one of his boy scout friends take a short cut road home from a scout jamboree, and are plunged into a drainage canal when a deer causes Ulla to swerve off the road. When floodgates are opened, the drainage canal rapidly fills up with while Ulla and the two boys try to free themselves from the truck. The only hope for rescue is if the water level gets high enough for Flipper to find them, before the water gets so high that they are drowned.
Agent Bud: Two bomber pilots measure out their lives in breaths of oxygen from an air bubble trapped with them in their cabin when Flipper discovers their stricken craft on the ocean floor. Picking up a landing light that broke off during the crash, the dolphin swims for assistance. Learning that an airplane is lost at sea, Porter is preparing for a search when he spots Flipper with the landing light. He and the boys follow the dolphin. A desperate race against time ensues as Porter, Sandy and Bud attempt to free the trapped pilots before their air is exhausted.
Lost Dolphin: Bud is isolated on a buoy encircled by sharks as Flipper, suffering from amnesia, displays indifference for his friend's plight. Earlier, the dolphin had suffered a concussion caused by hitting his head against Bud's boat. A veterinarian informs the Ricks their dolphin will be a temporary stranger until the accident's effects subside. After Flipper swims away from his friends, Bud attempts to recover his pet when he is trapped by the sharks. Frustrated on seeing Flipper swim away, Bud is uncertain whether the dolphin will seek help or leave him stranded.
Lifeguard: Flipper leads Bud to a beach where Lynn Borden lies half-conscious after falling off a boat 20 miles at sea. Speculation that Flipper towed her to shore leads Porter Ricks and researcher Carl Borden, Lynn's husband, to test Flipper's ability as a life-guard. When Borden also is involved in an accident at sea, Flipper has a chance to prove himself.
The Day of The Shark: Porter Ricks, Sandy and Marine Researcher Dr. William Tollner go to sea to investigate a school of lemon sharks which have invaded Coral Key Park, and to try out some newly devised shark repellents at the same time. Though admonished to stay at home with Flipper, Bud hears several explosions at sea, and paddles out with the dolphin to see if he can help. Bud and Flipper end up swimming right into the middle of the shark-infested area with Po, Sandy and Dr. Tollner watching helplessly.
Love And Sandy: Pretty teenager Bonnie McCoy takes Sandy by surprise when she sails into view aboard a floating zoo. Although Sandy is enchanted by the young girl, he can't help being amazed by the array of animals aboard the barge. When Flipper surfaces to express his interest, Bonnie's pride and joy, a performing seal named Sparky, takes a dive into the ocean and disappears. Thus, Sandy completely captivated by Bonnie, embarks upon two adventures -- a search for Sparky and teenage romance with Miss McCoy.
Money To Blow: The trouble begins when Flipper finds money underwater and presents some of the bills to Bud. Flipper shows Bud where it came from and they collect more from the underwater wreck. Bud goes on a spending spree buying all the things a boy of his age would want plus gifts for Sandy and Porter. The real trouble starts when the bills prove to be counterfeit. The wreck has been rigged for an explosion by the counterfeiters and Porter must rescue his sons who have returned to the wreck.
Flipper’s Treasure: Flipper goes to Bud and Porter Ricks for detective help after seeing a treasure chest stolen from the wreck of a sunken Spanish ship and hidden on a nearby island. Bud and Flipper first discover the wreck. Then Porter and Sandy, after further investigation, call upon an expert from an Archaeological Institute. It is Flipper who guides him to the wreck and its valuable treasure, and then observes the underwater theft.
The White Dolphin: Flipper disappears for several days and, when found by Porter Ricks, Sandy and Bud, is with another dolphin, an amazing albino, the only white dolphin in Porter's memory. Po discovers that Jed Harvey, a youngish amiable rogue, is trying to trap the white dolphin so he can sell it. Thus begins an intrigue in the open sea, while Bud and Flipper attempt to protect the white dolphin and Po and Sandy go to Miami Seaquarium for help. If scientists from Seaquarium can trap the albino first, they can give it a safe home where it can be seen by millions of people.
Teamwork: While Sandy and Bud prepare for the annual Coral Key Park swimming race, Porter is overcome by toxic chemicals dropped from a passing ship while he is carrying on an underwater investigation. Rescued by a passing boat, Po is taken unconscious to the hospital just as Sandy is about to enter a swimming race which will take twenty teenagers through the area polluted by the toxic chemicals. Only Flipper is aware of what the chemicals did to Porter.
Bud Minds Baby: Like the heroes he sees on TV, Bud tries to rescue a damsel in distress, but fails to tell Porter or Sandy of his intentions, an suddenly finds himself caught in a dangerous riptide. An eight year old girl named Tina, running away from home has told Bud she is an orphan trying to escape from an evil guardian. Bud agrees to hide her on a nearby island, using his newly built and not-too-seaworthy raft. But their grand adventure threatens to turn into tragedy.
Sailer Bud: Bud, trying to help an injured man and his wife marooned on a sailboat, has to call desperately for help from Flipper when the boat becomes caught in treacherous coral reefs.
