Yeah man... LOL! The original puppet stuff, that is... hence why this is a topic in the "TV Shows" section and not the movies... seeing as the movie was a travesty so... we won't mention it here, unless it's getting badmouthed
I always liked Virgil and Thunderbird 2 Parker and Lady Penelope were cool as well
I used to have this really dodgy Commodore 64 computer game of it, it was classic

Ahh....Thunderbirds, the toast of the Anderson franchise. I have fond memories waking up early (around 5:30am) on Sat morning (like that would happen now) and watching this fantastic show. For Xmas 1993 I got the Tracy Island play set complete with all the machines. This was before the molded plastic soundtech toys today - these were the die-cast metal ones! Now, the island and the ships are safely stored away ready to be played with by my own children someday, but I do sometimes take them and have a play
The movie is a sin. Gerry should have thought twice before putting a USA film company in charge, and as for Frakes.....
This show was a prime example of how good telly used to be, before it's painful death at the hands of reality TV.
