CELEBRATE THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF ONE OF SCI-FI'S GREATEST CULT SERIES OF ALL TIME, FROM THE MIND OF VISIONARY PRODUCER GERRY ANDERSON!
For over 45 years, legendary British TV producer Gerry Anderson (Captain Scarlet, Space: 1999, Stingray) churned out groundbreaking “Must-See Cult TV" like no other. Now, this January, A&E Home Video will proudly releases a sleek, collectible, value-priced set based on Anderson’s most popular cult series: THUNDERBIRDS 40TH ANNIVERSARY DVD MEGASET™.
This comprehensive collector's set -- priced to add to every Cult TV completist’s home entertainment library -- has been slimmed down and punched up for maximum, out-of-this-world appeal! Including every minute of this masterpiece of sci-fi supermarionation, available together on DVD for the first time, the 13-DVD set features all 32 digitally remastered episodes ever put to celluloid, plus bonus features sure to thrill “Fandersons,” and the uninitiated alike.
Late in the 21st Century ex-astronaut-gazillionaire Jeff Tracy devotes his fortune to the ultra-tech International Rescue Team. Joined by his five sons, who operate the Thunderbirds vehicles and utilize gadgets that would put Bond to shame, the IR Team gets knee-deep in adventure. Natural disasters keep the IR Team busy enough, but when the evil figure “The Hood” gets up to his dirty tricks, they have to pull out all the stops to foil his dastardly plans. By the way, these rough-and-tumble characters? Puppets – the lot of them!
With high-adventure cliff-hangers, before-their-time special effects and unforgettable characters that emerged from the brilliant mind of Anderson, THUNDERBIRDS is arguably one of the all-time best TV sci-fi shows in the history of the galaxy.
