I have some Sea Hunt merchandising ideas, mainly T shirts at this stage based on some iconic comic frames.
Sea Hunt's production company Ziv was purchased by United Artists in 1960.
Today, most of the rights to Ziv's TV shows are distributed by MGM Television, SFM Entertainment, and the Peter Rodgers Organization; some of them have fallen into the public domain.
Checking each of the above three links draws a blank for Sea Hunt...
Does anyone know who currently holds copyright on the original the Dell Four Color comic books?
Even uber collector Alec Peirce doesn't seem to know... and I want to do the right thing legally.
From what I can determine, Dell Comics ceased publication in 1974 with a few of its former titles moving to Gold Key Comics... but these did not include Sea Hunt.
