Colouring Book Theatre: Gerrry Anderson UFO

UFO by Purnell (1971) One of the nicest things I received at Mego Meet was this colouring book, which frankly, I didn’t know existed until it was placed in my hands. The one caveat my pal Corey had was that he hoped it would be featured on CBT. Wish granted!  (One little bit of trivia, […]

UFO Eagle

Presenting the coolest cross ever toy I’ve seen in a long time, normally I am immune to spaceship models (cause I suck at painting them) but this just broke my brain. More after the Jump: My love for Gerry Anderson’s UFO and Space:1999 could fill a warehouse and to find out IMAI of Japan added […]

Super Space Theatre Sales Kit

In the early 1980s, ITC Entertainment took their back catalog of (mainly) Gerry Anderson TV programs and edited them into a series of Television movies for the growing Cable TV market.  Dubbed “Super Space Theatre” these 14 movies were culled together from episodes of “Space:1999“, “UFO“, “Thunderbirds“, “Stingray“, “Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons” and the […]

More Sky Diving Parachutists

Colouring Book Theatre: UFO Seeing is Believing

UFO: Seeing is Believing Coloring Book By Whitman 1978 Another colouring book I found rummaging through  Planet of the Stuff a couple of weeks ago. Not to be confused with the Gerry Anderson UFO coloring book we covered a few months back. Whitman had quite the little cottage industry capitalizing on the UFO craze in the late 60s/early 70s. […]

Pod Stallions Episode 8: Anderson is FAB

Seeing as it’s September 13th, there is no better time to talk about the creative force that was Gerry Anderson. Eventhough much of the man’s output was done before Jason and Brain were even an idea, their timeless quality has fans talking about them to this day.  The guys show the evolution in puppets from […]

Colouring Book Theatre: Gerry Anderson’s UFO

UFO colouring book (Unknown Publishing) Anyone who has read this blog might know that I am more than a little obsessed with this short lived SF series from the UK. While this Gerry Anderson show enjoyed popularity world wide, it seemed to really catch on in Japan where its vehicles and colourful cast still enjoy […]

Gerry Anderson Toy Tribute

The passing of legendary TV producer Gerry Anderson yesterday, put me into a real funk. Anderson created two of my favourite science fiction series of all time in UFO and Space:1999, not to mention a pile of super cool kid’s programming in the 1960s.  The man was a visionary, Whenever Anderson’s name appeared, awesome merchandise […]
