First shown on TV in 1961, Supercar was the first of Gerry Anderson's science fiction stories. The star of the show was an amazing machine that could operate on land, in the sea, in the air and in space. The Supercar crew included its inventor Professor Popkiss and his colleague Doctor Beaker, pilot Mike Mercury, their friend Jimmy and his monkey Mitch. In their adventures the Supercar team often had to thwart the villainous intentions of characters such as Masterspy and his henchman Zarin.

Gerry Anderson’s career spanned 60 years over which he created and produced some of the world’s most beloved children’s television shows, including Thunderbirds, Fireball XL5, Captain Scarlet, UFO and many more. His first credit as a producer when he was still in his 20s and he had been producing shows for children's TV for several years when his new series, Supercar, finally started him on his journey to become a household name. Written and produced by Gerry and his second wife Sylvia, Supercar was created using a new style of puppetry, Supermarionation - a combination of traditional marionette puppetry but with electric moving parts. This was he first of a series of bold science fiction concepts, each with increasingly sophisticated effects as innovation, technology and budgets advanced. Initially the shows were for children's TV but over the years the target audiences became older. In 1970 his first live action production, UFO, brought with it more serious dramatic elements and a substantially more adult tone.

Gerry Anderson continued to work tirelessly on new projects well into his 70s. His TV shows and films, beloved by millions, are a creative legacy that has left an indelible mark on popular culture.

This mounted ensemble will fit into a generally available, standard size 12 x 12 inch ready made frame. Or alternatively you can order it already fitted into a frame. More info on framing options.
