    @MrDeepdale I’m 56 and I still have a crush on Lady Penelope. She was one cool babe, for a puppet.

    Actually they were named after the 5 of the original 7 NASA Mercury astronauts.
    The show was great for the kids in my generation when they aired during the 1960s, it inspired me to be an aviation engineer. Too bad thaqt they don’t have anything like that anymore.

    Did anyone notice the Tracy Boys were named After Gemini/Apollo Astronauts? it took me 20 years to notice that
    BTW Jonathan Frakes should have been shot for that crime against the sences he called “Thunderbirds” Movie

    In my opinion, these are the main contributions from U.K. to the world:

    1.- William Shakespeare.
    2.- Isaac Newton.
    3.- Gustav Holst.
    4.- The thunderbirds! (Gerry Anderson).

    @cbraxxas Actually they would switch him with Alan every month.

    By the way, I loved this show. It’s sad that it seems like the only people keeping puppetry alive are those who make Sesame Street. Not that I have anything against Sesame Street; it’s just that puppetry as an art seems to have died over the years. Or, at least, it’s dying.
    I miss Greek shadow puppets, too. A shamefully dying art.

  24. pandarsson says:

    @RobotwarsKing I fucking hate when my countrymen act ignorant and then whoever they’re insulting acts stupid in return. But I guess I can only speak to my fellow American citizens on our part.
    Look, others are wrong for claiming 300 million people are all equal to the stupidest among us, but could you at least TRY to be better than that? Be a dumbass amongst your friends. When you speak in public, try to sound intelligent. Or at least respectful.
    Fuck. We’ve really gone downhill in some ways.

  25. cbraxxas says:

    Anyone else get the feeling that John Tracy was the idiot son that nobody wanted around, so they stuck him up on a space station and didn’t speak to him for months on end?
