Gerry Anderson Day 2024 – Stand By For Action With The First Online Preview

Gerry Anderson Day is our annual celebration of the life and legacy of the man responsible for such classics as Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, UFO, Space: 1999 and more – and this year’s event promises to be one of our most exciting ever!

Taking place on April 14th (the anniversary of Gerry’s birth in 1929), Gerry Anderson Day 2024 will have a particular focus on Stingray, his fourth television series to be filmed in the pioneering format of Supermarionation. Stingray itself is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, and we have a plethora of announcements and releases coming soon in celebration of the super-sub’s milestone!

You’ll be able to celebrate Gerry Anderson Day and Stingray‘s 60th in style with the release of our new Gerry Anderson Day T-Shirt. This t-shirt is available for a limited time only, and features the Anderson ‘A’ logo made up of iconic vehicles, logos, and other symbols from the worlds of Anderson, with a special focus on Stingray. The Gerry Anderson Day T-Shirt is currently available at the Gerry Anderson store, and is only available until April 16th.

Over a 60-year career, Gerry’s career blossomed from slow beginnings to a pioneering body of work throughout the 1960s with his Supermarionation TV shows and films. Beyond puppetry, his output grew even more versatile, with celebrated forays into live-action, stop-motion animation, and CGI. From the cosmic wonders of outer space to the darkest depths of the world’s oceans, Gerry’s work in television and film continues to capture the minds of generations across the globe, and Gerry Anderson Day is the perfect way to celebrate the man’s legacy.

Join us on April 14th in celebrating the life and legacy of one of TV’s most influential and beloved producers, and discover more about what exactly we have planned to celebrate Stingray‘s 60th anniversary!

This year will be the first official Anderson Online Preview showcasing a little into the future of what we’ve got coming up. It’s a very exciting time to be an Anderson fan so keep an eye on the Official Gerry Anderson website and our social media channels for further updates!
