SuperMarionation

Tagged: Film | TV | Theme

Animated puppet technique devised by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson and used in a sequence of television shows of which most were sf: Four Feather Falls (1960) (fantasy in a US Western setting), Fireball Xl5 (1962-1963), Stingray (1964-1965), Thunderbirds (1965-1966), Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons (1967-1968), Joe 90 (1968-1969) and The Secret Service (1969). The last mixed the SuperMarionation technique with live-action sequences, somewhat unsuccessfully. [DRL]
