What was the point of that?

If he is 'indestructible' it's hardly 'will he die' dramatic, is it?
Don't diss da man!

As a 9 yr-old boy watching Captain Scarlet, every week ever more cunning and violent ways of crushing, burning, vaporising, obliterating him were presented in gory detail. There would always be a frisson of excitement, thinking 'how the ***** will he get out of that one'.

As if that weren't enough for a young boy, there was gorgeous totty too...the Angels! And in the days before PC, they weren't afraid to put duct tape over their mouths to stop them talking too much! :lol:

I've been educated in the ways of Captain Scarlet quite recently. Apparently it was the 'best series ever made', but I'm not really sure myself..........

For me, it has to be Thunderbirds. Capt Scarlet and Stingray running close seconds.

I can actually remember watching Supercar, but I would never admit to being that old of course...

Stingray TV intro (1964) - YouTube

I remember Fireball XL5 but not the first time round :D

I wish I was a spaceman
The fastest guy alive
I'd fly you 'round the universe
In Fireball XL5
Way out in space together
Conquerors of the sky
My heart would be a fireball, a fireball
Every time I gazed into your starry eyes

Zoonie the lazoon :cheese:

Agree, I never really got that as a kid. Found the whole thing rather confusing. I guess the Dr Who gang must have been fans as Captain Jack is a modern (and rather camper) version....

Thunderbirds wins hands down for me, with Fireball XL5 and Stingray tied for second. How about this for an all-girl puppet supergroup - Aqua Marina and the Angels!

Cheers,

Nigel

I always wondered why the interior shot of Stingray always looked like there was a tiled bathroom wall outside the window, whatever they were doing. Maybe it wasn't there but I do remember thinking it as a kid.

But i thought Aqua Marina could'nt speak ?

Agree with the Angels though top puppet tottie :thumbs:

Captain Scarlet was by far the coolest of the Jerry Anderson shows, Thunderbirds were to goody too shoes, and Stingray just fought off fish :lol:

Doesn't matter, all the girl groups just mime anyway :lol:
You got there ahead of me. Although I have to admit I hadn't really thought it through........ It was just the image that immediately sprang to mind and I got a bit carried away....:lol:

He may be indestructible, but I bet it would hurt if he was put in a shredder :confused:

I have to say, that first picture is slightly disturbing in an "I vaguely remember having dreams about that" sort of way :eek:
