Favourite Gerry Anderson Show

There was indeed Supercar!

imo the scerecy element of Thunderbirds was a reference to espionage and the Cold War, something the viewers could relate to amongst some of the more wild SF ideas. The Hood is visualised as being from Eastern Asia somewhere you recall, possibly intended to be Vietnam or Korea.
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

I'd have to say Thunderbirds, as it's the one I can actually remember watching as a kid. I have vague recollections of Stingray, which to me at that age was Thunderbirds underwater.

Was there also a Supercar? I seem to have just a flash of memory, a bubble domed car diving into the sea.

Never figured out why the Tracy family had to keep their identities a secret.

Oh yes, there was Supercar piloted by Mike Mercury. The sound effect used for Supercar turns up several times in other Gerry Anderson shows, but I always call it the Supercar Sound!

Here are the lyrics (they changed, apparently, by season 2).

Supercar... Supercar...
With beauty and grace,
as swift as can be,
watch it flying through the air.
It travels in space,
or under the sea,
and it can journey anywhere.

Supercar... Supercar...
It travels on land,
or roams the skies,
through a heavens stormy rage,
It's Mercury-manned,
and everyone cries,
"it's the marvel of the age!"

Supercar... Supercar... Supercar!

Another song for April 13th!?

Does anyone have a guitar to hand? Or a keyboard??
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

I only watch the puppet shows as an adult, but still loved Thunderbirds (had to be Virgil for me!), especially the 60s vibe of the whole thing, and Stingray because it was funny. Never quite got into Captain Scarlet, found it too serious and not enough fun.

I've tried to watch 1999 but found it both too silly and too boring to enjoy properly. However, I voted for UFO, after watching it properly fairly recently. The look had put me off before, but I really got into it after watching it properly. Great drama and some good weird ideas.
Captain Scarlet my fave, very deep and dark, my first experience that the good guys could lose!

1999 because...it really wasn't like any other Anderson show. I do love UFO now too though after watching every episode in order, mostly. 1999 has this special otherworldly quality and even has some kind of spirituality and thought behind it. It's very maligned by others for no reason other than they didn't understand it, didn't watch it, and criticize it without having seen most of it or understanding it or just are repeating what others have said about it.

I enjoyed the first series but once Maya came along...it was to me as a 12 yo a strange deus ex machina way of solving the Problem of the Week(tm) without using any of the rest of the crew's abilities. I found I was waiting for Maya to transform into whateveah and save the day.

Took away the whole interplay for me...
I used to be such a sweet sweet thing
