This week in Gerry Anderson news!

Welcome to Mr Bumbledrop’s garden! Sit yourselves down on the see-saw – it’s time for the Gerry Anderson news roundup!

This week’s edition of the Gerry Anderson Podcast launched on Sunday evening, and featured the first part of an interview with Lavender Castle voice artist Kate Harbour! If you prefer to stick with traditional audio-only rather than our new and improved video format you can still catch it (and all other previous episodes) every week either through our website or via your podcast platform of choice.

Also new this week over on the Gerry Anderson Randomiser Podcast (also available on all podcast platforms) there’s Drama at Space City as Fireball XL5 becomes a runaway!

This week’s Thunderbirds Thursday article celebrated the launch of our limited edition Thunderbird 2 collectible model, as well as hinted at exciting treats for this year’s Gerry Anderson Day on April 14th! We have nearly sold out of the Thunderbird 2 model now, so don’t miss out – order yours today!

If you’re a child of the 1960s then you may remember forcing down bowl after bowl of Kellogg’s Sugar Smacks as advertised on television by such Anderson characters as Captain Scarlet, Joe 90, and the members of International Rescue – particularly when they enticed you to do so with free gifts! This week’s new product launch at the Official Gerry Anderson Store will take you back to 1968, as it collects the 6 Kellogg’s Joe 90 badges in one pack! Order yours now – supplies are limited!

On March 25th this week we remembered the legendary Sylvia Anderson on the 97th anniversary of her birth, while UFO actress Gabrielle Drake also celebrated her birthday this week (March 30th). Popular Anderson episodes that first aired in the UK this week in years past include Fireball XL5‘s Dangerous Cargo (March 24th 1963), ThunderbirdsThe Cham-Cham (March 24th 1966), Captain Scarlet‘s Flight to Atlantica (March 24th 1968), Supercar‘s 70-B-Lo (March 25th 1962), Captain Scarlet‘s Expo 2068 (March 26th 1968), New Captain Scarlet‘s Circles of Doom (March 26th 2005), Stingray‘s Pink Ice (March 28th 1965) and Joe 90‘s Mission X-41 (March 30th 1969).

It’s time to go home now, children! We’ll be back next weekend with another Gerry Anderson news roundup – and hopefully, a major surprise from the world of a classic Anderson series! Stay tuned…
