Trivia:
Terrahawks was the first Gerry Anderson puppet series to be made without the familiar "Supermarionation" puppetry technique and instead used a new superior "Supermacromation", a Muppet-style puppetry technique that made the puppets look more realistic and enabled them to be operated for the first time without any strings.See more »

Good all-round entertainment, 9 April 2004
Author: lesmoyes from Khamis Mushayt, Saudi Arabia

I have read the other reviews for this series and was quite pleased to note that there were very few criticisms. I suspect that I may have been one of the few who was an adult when I saw these programmes yet still sat through every episode - and looked forward to each new one beforehand. The great thing for me about these 30-minute gems was the fact that the stories were not deep (it was for young kids after all) yet they still worked on both an adult's and a child's level thereby ensuring that dad could sit down and watch this with the kids and be entertained too. Surprisingly nobody seems to have picked up on the clever casting of Windsor Davies who effectively reprised his role as the Sergeant-Major from the BBC sitcom "It Ain't Half Hot Mum". I reckon that for good all-round entertainment this is one of the best things Gerry Anderson ever did.
