UK supermarionation puppet pioneer Gerry Anderson is best known for his Thunderbirds series. However, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons is probably his most innovative and imaginative concept. Spectrum, a global crime fighting organization with their own fleet of pilots, field operatives and land, sea and aircraft, are in the process of defending Earth from the Mysterons, an alien race with power to take over human bodies.
