Today is the birthday of Gerry Anderson.

I loved (and am still quite fond of) all the various television series that Anderson did when I was relatively little, including Torchy the Battery Boy, Supercar, Fireball XL-5, Stingray, Thunderbirds, and Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons. Some of my favourite Anderson shows were U.F.O., and Space: 1999, both of which were interesting series with some very good storylines but at times poor execution. I did manage to catch a couple of episodes of the New Captain Scarlet, but didn't watch the whole run, since it aired in a time slot where I had other things going on.

So, thanks for some enjoyable childhood television experiences, Gerry! And Happy Birthday to you! :)
