Everything You Might Have Missed From Thunderbirds Day!

On Saturday September 30th we (and many others around the world) celebrated all things Thunderbirds on the 58th anniversary of the very first UK broadcast of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s Supermarionation classic! Here’s everything we had to offer International Rescue agents during Thunderbirds Day 2023!

To start with, our own AC gifted you with not one but two exciting audio readings of stories from classic TV21 and Thunderbirds annuals!

Brains has set all International Rescue agents a fiendish challenge – to match 32 opening lines to their respective episodes of Thunderbirds! Sounds easy? It prove trickier than you think – give it a go here!

Ever fancied owning a set of the Tracy lounge wall portraits, featuring the five Tracy brothers plus Lady Penelope as seen in the first season of the Thunderbirds television series? The Official Gerry Anderson Store is now offering A3 prints of all six in a single collection – but hurry, as we have very few sets remaining!

Thunderbirds fans of the 1980s may recognise this as the poster artwork for the 1980s compilation ‘movie’ Thunderbirds in Outer Space – and now you can sport this artwork on a T-shirt by pre-ordering it from the Official Gerry Anderson Store!

For those who might prefer a more traditional Thunderbirds logo T-shirt, we’re delighted to now be able to offer this limited edition plain white tee featuring the iconic Thunderbirds logo.

If you’ve been waiting for more audio adventures from the International Rescue team, they’re back in action in this new boxset of four full cast audio dramas based on the classic TV21 and Lady Penelope comic strip stories The Revolution, Mr. Steelman, The Trapped Spy and The Big Freezenow available to pre-order on CD from the Official Gerry Anderson Store for delivery at the end of November! If you fancy a look behind the scenes of Thunderbirds: Danger and Deception, we also have a special trailer offering just that here!

As if all that wasn’t enough, David Munday, Jack Knoll and AC joined forces to present a Thunderbirds Day livestream at 7pm on Saturday evening – but did the Hood succeed in thwarting the broadcast? Find out by watching it above!
