more quirky kid show from the sixties

Fireball XL5 ring a bell? Gerry Anderson filmed this in Supermarionation. He's also responsible for the other futuristic shows - Captain Scarlet, Stingray, and Supercar He's most known for the show Thunderbirds. Several years ago a VERY obscene but funny Team America World Police movie was released by the same guys that make South Park.. Team America paid tribute to Anderson's earlier work. At the same time, a Thunderbirds movie directed by Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek Next Generation) came out starring real people was also showing. I enjoyed all of the old super puppets of Andersons growing. They were creepy then and creepy now.
