Hi Lloyd

The US Navy features in the Newton's history.  See:

Greetings, All:
     While sitting here with one of my daughters watching a re-run of
the cartoon "Pinky and the Brain" episode 'Das Mouse," which parodies
"Das Boot" and all the other submarine movies ever made, as a sub-hunter
leaves port at high speed, he exclaims, "Hang on to your Newton...we're
going sub hunting!"
    I wonder how many of the kiddies watching this when it first ran on
Saturday morning even noticed the reference, let alone knew what a
Newton was?  Link:
It's about 9:30 in to the cartoon.
