Performers, Cast and Crew:
Gerry Anderson's cult sci-fi series brought "super-marionation" into the forefront. The story follows Jeff Tracy (voiced by Peter Dyneley of MANSTER) and his sons--the eponymous Thunderbirds--as they fly around in their multimillion dollar spaceship, answering calls of distress throughout the galaxy in the name of International Rescue.
"Trapped in the Sky" - The Thunderbirds attempt to disarm a bomb aboard a jet in midair, all the while being monitored by the sinister Hood.
"Pit of Peril" - "The Sidewinder", an innovative Army troop transport, goes south on its first test mission - literally. Trapped below the earth, the transport's crew wait breathlessly to be rescued by the Thunderbirds.
"City of Fire" - A family is trapped in a blazing shopping mall. Can the Thunderbirds get to their aide fast enough'
"Sunprobe" - The Thunderbirds have to intervene when a derelict ship begins heading directly for the sun (and not get burned in the process).
"The Uninvited" - The pyramid-dwelling Zombites apprehend Scott (voiced by Shane Rimmer) when he crashes in the desert. It's up to him to blind the creatures and escape.
"The Mighty Atom" - The Hood gets his diabolical hands on a robotic, photo-taking rat and attempts to use it against the Thunderbirds. Little does he know what the film will show when it's actually developed!
