All Things Anderson (Gerry that is)

Postby Jan Van Quirm » Mon Sep 20, 2010 4:17 pm

This forum's a teensy bit like Thunderbirds - anything can happen in the next 10 posts :twisted:
------------------------------------------------------------


I have split this topic from the one about the Pope that you can find HERE.

Tony. :)


:shock: Oh - right... Yeah :lol: Fine by me :twisted:

I always feel a bit scared when it comes to contradicting Jan :P , but I believe the phrase "anything can happen in the next 10 posts" alludes to the fantastic STINGRAY and not Thunderbirds. :wink:

:twisted: Whoo! I have a bad rep at last! 8)

However - I cannot pretend to be an expert on Gerry Anderson Super-Marionation serials so you may very well be right Penners :D :wink:

Although being absolutely and strictly pedantic the quote should have been "anything can happen in the next hour!" Or was it the next half hour...? :roll: :P

Anything can happen in the next half hour

And maybe three if you include Twizzle and Torchy the Battery Boy. :wink:



Edit to add links to the two shows as well as Four Feather Falls - all of which were early Gerry Anderson shows. He went of to make Supercar, Firebal XL5, Stingray, Thunderbirds and the rest. :wink:

I've got a four year old on my knee that knows what Thunderbirds is, and wants eveyone to know.

I have all of Thunderbirds on DVD, and all of Stingray as well. It just had to be done :)

I used to enjoy Twizzle, but it's amazing how many people (my generation) have never heard of it!

Thunderbirds was better than Stingray (IMO), but the only video's I have are of Watch With Mother and Terrahawks ... and DangerMouse, and Ivor The Engine ...
