Of course all the Supermarionation was big down under. A comedy show sent up the thunderbirds in it. Of course the great YouTube provider has a link to it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZC4frcXimz4

I loved UFO! I even watched the series more than once in rerun. I loved those British babes - totally hot and unquestionably competent! It was interesting when the 1980s actually came.... I never got into Space 1999. It was just too lame.

I'm planning a future column on programs like Space 1999... Can you think of any others of this ilk?

Reg Hill, Desmond Saunders and the Andersons also went on to produce the live-action series U.F.O. and Space:1999.

I must disagree; the miniature work in the Supermarionation series is still mind-bogglingly good, and puts most CGI to shame.

Nope, I leave FPGAs to others :-) I'm an RF/microwave/EM/MMIC/antenna type (although I confess to some embedded stuff, to poke bits into the RF stuff...) I do Planet Analog, though!

I must admit that I had forgotten about the gnome :-) Have you joined www.AllProgrammablePlanet.com yet?

If there were ever any doubts...the garden gnome's sign saying, "GO!" removed any and all :-)

I've seen all the early Wallace and Gromits -- I LOVE that Thunderbirds take-off scene of which you speak -- Max
