Sheriff Tex Tucker makes sure all is well in Four Feather Falls with the help of his dog Dusty and Rocky the horse. Done with puppets, even the animals talk and sing along with the humans as problems are quickly wrapped up.
Gerry Anderson's first science fiction Supermarionation series. Super Car was a prototype vehicle that could travel in the air, on land or beneath the sea. Its test pilot was Mike Mercury, who traveled the world in search of adventure. Super Car was designed by Professor Popkiss and Dr. Beaker, who continued to modify it for specific missions. Often traveling with Mike was 10-year-old orphan Jimmy Gibson. Written by

The main characters in Supercar were not designed in-house by A.P. Films. As with Four Feather Falls the faces were first sketched by an ex-Disney animator. Sadly, his identity is lost to history. See more »
Do you suppose that Mike Mercury will be able to unravel such a brilliant scheme, conceived by Masterspy himself?
I mean, *no*, Masterspy!

I used to really enjoy watching this show as a youngster. I think some of the children's shows today are okay, but in general they just are not of the same caliber as Supercar and some of the other shows and cartoons that were around in 1961.
Maybe some of the cable stations should consider airing Supercar again. Even today in 2006, Supercar would still be futuristic. Maybe some of today's auto manufacturers should take notes.
Incredibly talented puppeteers made this a one-of-a-kind classic.
I hope Supercar used some fuel other than gasoline. They couldn't afford to run it at today's prices.
Mike Mercury, Dr. Beaker, Professor Popkiss, Jimmy, and Mitch, long time no see. Hope you are all well.
