Sigmund and the Sea Monsters (1973)
The show centered on two brothers, Johnny and Scott Stuart, who discover Sigmund , a friendly young sea monster who had been thrown out by his comically dysfunctional undersea family for refusing to frighten people. The boys hide Sigmund in their clubhouse.
Plotlines were very simple and straightforward, usually some variation on the idea of Sigmund doing something silly to arouse attention, and the boys working to prevent him from being found by Sigmund's brother monsters, Blurp and Slurp. The brothers also worked to hide Sigmund from their overbearing housekeeper Zelda, elderly neighbor Mrs. Eldels and Sheriff Chuck Bevans. Zelda was the boys' housekeeper while their parents were away on vacation. The parents were never seen on the show, nor did they return home by the end of the series.
The episodes included songs as part of the plot development, the character(s), generally Johnny, would sing a song about what he was thinking or feeling about something going on in his life, from things that made him happy to anxiety about girls.
