    That's Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons.

    I had their VHS tapes and the "Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle" when I was younger.

    I dont know if that ever made it across the pond.

    Im not sure if that ever played in the US, but if it did I missed it! The Thunderbirds were one of my favorite shows as a kid. I have every episode STILL, including the full length movie (not the lame live action one). Now, I have to get Captain Scarlett! I recognize the puppet style anywhere...it has to be worth it. :)

    It played here on SBS IIRC, so it would suprise me if it wasn't on in the States at some point.

    I would have remembered it!

    The Thunderbirds was my FAVORITE "live action" cartoon. The miniature sets, the cool vehicles and the stories...I would have remembered it if it was on. But, perhaps I just missed it? LOL, Im gonna get it for sure. The design of the puppets is unmistakable as being from the same designers as those for the Thunderbirds. :)

    Watched it when I was a kid as it did play here in Canada . Not sure which channel it was on though .
    Excellent show as were the Thunderbirds and Joe 90, Stingray and Supercar . Just downloaded Captain Scarlet and The Mysterons .

    Where there any others done in SuperMarionation ?

    Hey Tripler, did you know this was back? I am watching it on Amazon, but it is on Kodi as well. It's called The New Captain Scarlet, and it is no longer marionation but still feels like the original. Season 1 is on Amazon, and I am bingeing it right now. I like the update, but the Mysterons seem like an illogical antagonist. They are FAR more advanced than humans and it seems like they just like playing little games with Earth and humans for fun. Each episode has some Mysteron plot to attack somebody who works on Skybase. :) But that was the original show and they kept the premise. Mostly, it works.
