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.
