Trivia

The series used two different end-title sequences. In the UK, the credits were displayed against a tic-tac-toe game between red "Cubots" (from the Zeldan Android Empire) and blue Zeroids. In the event of a "draw," the Cubots always won by knocking a couple of Zeroids aside to form "three in a row." Zeroids and Cubots alike boasted three different facial expressions throughout the game: blank (during play), frowns (for the losers) and smiles (for the winners). Said credit sequence was rarely seen in the U.S. until TERRAHAWKS' recent 5-DVD box set had been released to stores, 20 years after its TV debut. Prior to that time, the end-credit sequence-background familiar to U.S. audiences had featured a bouncing Zeroid and stationary Cubot (both animated); after most of the titles had rolled, the Zeroid would bounce high out of frame, then fall on the Cubot and crush it, finally smiling and winking at the camera.

20 April 2001 | by (Staffs, England) – See all my reviews

I've just purchased a copy of 'Terrahawks' from my local blockbuster as they are getting rid of all their old tapes (b@st@rds) and it's the first time I've seen this in years. It's GREAT! Although this seems to be the forgotten Gerry Anderson series I think it's one of the best, the bad guys really are quite scary lookin. The ships are great! Those ball things rolling about the place if dead cool! It's all very sci-fi! If you liked the Thunderbirds and you get a chance to see this, DO SO because you won't regret it, I just wish I had more tapes!
