Gerry Anderson, the hugely influential creator of Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Space: 1999 made a spectacular return to puppet animation in the early 1980s with an exciting new series co-created with Christopher Burr. Thrilling yet another generation of children (and adults!), Terrahawks introduced a new elite force to defend 21st century Earth against a host of alien invaders.
