Who owns the rights?
14 September 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I heard (on NPR) that Gerry Anderson (creator of the brilliant Thunderbirds series) bought the rights to 'Super Adventure Team.'

That's why it can never be rebroadcast.

Unfortunate, since with 'Team America: World Police' coming out soon, now would be a good time for the sister MTV division to relaunch SAT.

There was also a 'Thunderbirds' parody on Saturday Night Live (The Go Lords) and of course the Orbitz commercial.

I highly recommend catching an episode of the original 'Thunderbirds'(1964), or its evil twin 'Captain Scarlet' (1967), as an introduction to this genre.

Andersons' crew clearly had to relearn film-making and especially editing to work effectively with puppet stars. The result is the unique quick cut style that still holds up today.
