Synopsis for "Dinosaur Sub-Catcher!"
A lone frogman is found out in the middle of the arctic sea by a submarine. Taken aboard, he tells the captain that he and his sub were sent on a mission to investigate a strategic weather station that had gone down.
Sending out a group of frogmen on recon, the trio encounter a gigantic prehistoric fish. When their harpoon guns prove ineffectual, the sub fires a torpedo that kills the giant monster. The captain finds the tale fantastic and demands proof if they encounter another prehistoric beast. As they continue further, they are attacked once again by an ancient Dinosaur, necessitating the frogmen to get out and investigate what is happening outside the ship. Once more killing the creature with torpedoes, the three frog men manage to snap pictures of the dead creature before they are attacked by a giant eel.
This time equipped with explosive harpoons, the frogmen manage to save themselves, however the creature does not let go and they begin to sink to the ocean floor with it. The troops manage to free themselves and get back to the sub before passing out from the bends. The picture unfortunately do not turn out and the Captain still does not believe that they were attacked by Dinosaurs.
Sending the frogmen to the surface to check the weather station, they spot a giant dinosaur attacking it. When they attempt to take a picture of the creature, they find that the shutter on their cameras have been frozen shut from the cold. When the Dinosaur attacks the sub, the three frog men manage to kill it with plastic explosives. The resulting blast sends the ship and the three frog men out into the sea, and this is how the frog man initially got lost to begin with.
With his story complete, the captain of this vessel also doesn't believe the fantastic story. However when the missing sub is found, and the captain (now believing his frog mens story) tells the same story again and is, ironically, asked for proof.
