Fantastic.. just.. yeah!
15 July 2002 | by (Southport, England) – See all my reviews

The humour is spot on, its hard to imagine that the guy who made this is behind Thunderbirds! To be fair, ive only seen one episode in the series titled: The case of the Maltese Parrot

Its amazing. it parodies so many films, most notably The Maltese Falcon. Impossible to find on video.
