Movie SummaryFilmed in "Supermarionation," the daring Thunderbirds are called on to save three astronauts trapped in a crippled rocket. All of the characters are portrayed by marionettes. Featured episodes compiled from original series: "Sun Probe" and "Ricochet." HISTORY: "Created by pre-eminent special-effects man Gerry Anderson, Thunderbirds was the story of the Tracy family, a wealthy clan of billionaire astronauts who embarked on a unique philanthropic venture. Jeff Tracy, and his five sons (Scott, Virgil, Gordon, John and Alan)(Note the five sons names are also five of the original seven Mercury astronauts: Scott Carpenter, Virgil 'Gus' Grissom, Gordon Cooper, John Glenn, and Alan Shepherd.) formed "International Rescue", an organization whose purpose should be self explanatory. They used technology designed by their resident Techno Wizard, "Brains", which was far beyond anything possessed by any military or civilian agency on the planet, even given the series's far future setting of the early 21st century. Every week, some monstrous disaster would occur, and the boys (primarily Scott and Virgil) would pilot their awesome Thunderbird aerospace craft to the scene, moving at speeds that would make an aeronautical engineer drool. Scott would get there first, survey the situation, and call back to Virgil, who would then arrive at the scene with the right equipment loaded into the cavernous interior of Thunderbird Two's "pod". Amongst other things, a drilling vehicle (Mole) or an underwater rover (Thunderbird Four) could be loaded into Two. There were five Thunderbirds, one for each brother:• Thunderbird One: Was the most used. Looks like a space shuttle, moves like a jet fighter. • Thunderbird Two: A ginormous plane that could load equipment or smaller vehicles in his hangar space. • Thunderbird Three: An actual rocketship. Mostly used to get to Thunderbird Five. • Thunderbird Four: A small submarine/underwater rover. • Thunderbird Five: A Space Station. Acting as an espionage back-up, to prevent any of IR's tech from being stolen and used for military or destructive purposes, was prim and proper spy Lady Penelope, and her rough-edged cockney Battle Butler Parker, in Penny's pink six-wheeled Rolls-Royce limousine, FAB 1. The miniatures used were cutting edge for the time. The show was described as feature film quality, to the point where Lord Grade, the head of the commissioning company ITC Entertainment, upped it from a half hour to an hour long drama (necessitating additional scenes to be shot for the first few episodes). Oh, and all the characters were puppets. The show was filmed in Supermarionation, which is really just souped-up marionettes. This show is a classic in its native Britain, and around the world. The first season was such a success that it was decided to make a full-blown movie before production began on the second season; the result was Thunderbirds are GO!, wherein the Tracys must rescue an imperiled Mars rocket after a scrape with the local lifeforms. Expected to be a blockbuster of James Bond proportions, it performed poorly at the box office; amid corporate fears that the bubble had burst, Gerry Anderson was instructed that the second season be cut back to just six episodes. United Artists, surprised at the failure of the first movie, subsequently commissioned another - Thunderbird 6, where designing a new Thunderbird vehicle is put on hold when a state-of-the-art luxury airship is in danger - and this also flopped. In 2004 a live action/CGI action movie directed by Jonathan Frakes, and starring Ben Kingsley and Bill Paxton, was released. It was not well received either."
