Thunderbird 6

1 min read

Lady Penelope travels the world aboard Brains’ new airship, Skyship One, unaware that the entire crew are imposters plotting the downfall of International Rescue. Thunderbird 6 is unveiled!

Despite the shock failure of Thunderbirds are Go in 1966 United Artists authorised the production of  Thunderbird 6 as a “last hurrah” for the show, giving the production team a budget of £300,000.

Thunderbirds 6 notably featured a scene with a group of laughing puppets which has become well known in fan circles for its unusual and rather creepy nature.

    I hope when they remake thunderbirds they don’t wreck it and use the old way of making it which made it so popular and successful as it still is today

  • A lovely Frank Bellamy poster – who also drew Thunderbirds in TV21!

  • This movie was so spectacular in sight and sound… It was as much a “Penelope” movie as “Thunderbirds”
    So many effects that were getting closer to “live action”, the visual effects team were in overtime… The bodies of the crew being jettisoned, as Skyship One flew in front of a sunset.. The Engine room gunfight.. The James Bond franchise could not have done it better? And, Derek Meddings team, got to do what they did best..
    However, I have always felt that Parker was rather “put down” and not treated as well as usual in some early parts of this story?

  • Love thunderbirds <3 <3 go search movies & series complete collection xD
