Thunderbirds was a 1965-1966 British science fiction series that had it all: Heroic do-gooders. Malign evil-doers. Spaceships. Gadgets. Puppets. Submarines. Wait, what was that other thing? Did she say “puppets?” Yup(pets). Thunderbirds was made in “supermarionation,” because although it had many ingredients for a stellar television show, what it sadly lacked was a budget. Now Thunderbirds, which inspired the look of the 2004 film Team America: World Police, is getting a remake. Only this time, Weta Workshop will have something to say about the casting.
