Monster Minute: Sahuagin

Aquaman?Sahuagin from Super Friends? Or from Maori?
The sahuagin are an aquatic monstrous humanoid species who’s features resemble that of a fish.  They were originally created for D&D by Steve Marsh as a gamer, before he became employed by TSR.  Where Steve Marsh got the idea for the sahuagin is up for debate: one source says that he got the inspiration from a Justice League or Super Friends cartoon featuring similar creatures as monsters.  I did some research, and couldn’t find the exact Super Friends cartoon.  The closest thing I could find (and this is why this week’s Monster Minute is late) is an old episode of Aquaman entitled “The Rampaging Reptile-Men” (Youtube Video).
