    This intro is from “Vault Of Death.” Parker’s past as a criminal comes back to haunt him when a former cellmate escapes vowing to rob the Bank Of England and a new vault has been installed that traps an absent-minded bank employee.

    @doctorwhoone cgi…i think that ruins it…you ask people what they think of when you say puppets and they would have said “thunderbirds, captain scarlet ands stingray” now it’s all cgi and has lost it’s nostalgia

    It was Thunderbirds that first inspired Matt Stone & Trey Parker to create Team America: World Police… Go figure

    This is true and I have rehearsed it when drunk – however i assure you this is for real. At my cremation when the coffin starts to roll I want this music played and I’ll finally get to be a Internation Rescue Thunderbird!

    @sidneybarretos I’d read that Gerry Anderson wanted to include a black character in Fireball XL5 but wasn’t allowed to. Captain Scarlet had a black agent in Lietenant Green and an Oriental character in Harmony Angel

    Almost every character has the last name “Tracy”….
