Gerry Anderson (THUNDERBIRDS, SPACE 1999) Is Gone

Sad news yesterday, as UK newspaper The Guardian published confirmation that legendary animator and series creator Gerry Anderson has died at the age of 83.

In the 60s, Gerry Anderson was responsible for several famous science fiction puppet
series like Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Stingray. Later he branched out into live action with the film Journey to the Far Side of the Sun, and series like UFO and Space 1999.

If you were between the ages of 5 and 25 sometime during the 60s or 70s, you probably loved his work. Me, I have to say thanks for countless afternoons of wonder. Mr Anderson has been a great inspiration and influence for many, and he will be missed.

A real genius! Used to watch Supercar incessantly when in broadcast on, I believe, Comedy Channel or HA!tv (which quickly merged to become Comedy Central), back in the early 90's. "Soopacahhhh!"
