Price: DVD $19.59
Studio: MPI

The Lost Worlds of Gerry Anderson celebrates the age of before computer animation—a time of the very inventive – and super cool – marionette adventures created by Gerry Anderson.

Gerry Anderson’s futuristic superhero adventures created using puppets–Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, UFO, Supercar, Stingray, Fireball XL5 and other series shot in “Supermarionation”–scored big time throughout the 1960s and ’70s.

The Lost Worlds of Gerry Anderson presents for the first time on DVD a collection of rare films from the writer, producer, director and voice artist. The two-disc set features hours of programs and pilots that never went to full series. From his never-before-seen early puppet film “Here Comes Kandy” to the final segment of the 1980s stop-motion animated comedy series Dick Spanner, P.I., they’re all here…

Included are Gerry’s pilot films, such as “The Investigator,” the last puppet film from the original key crew, and “The Day After Tomorrow,” starring Nick Tate and Brian Blessed (Flash Gordon and Star Wars: Episode 1The Phantom Menace), a rarely seen telemovie pilot that spanned the production of Anderson’s hit live-action series Space: 1999.

Also from the Anderson archives is the pilot “Space Police,” a sci-fi adventure that went on to serve as the template for Gerry’s science fiction favorite Space Precinct.
