Thunderbirds Thursday: Countdown to Gerry Anderson Day 2024 & TB2 Model Launch

Stand by for action, Anderfans! Gerry Anderson Day 2024 is fast approaching, and there’s an exciting line-up of events and releases planned for the day! Gerry Anderson Day takes place on April 14th, the year of Gerry’s birth. On this day every year, we celebrate the life and work of Gerry Anderson and his incredible filmography. Across a near 60-year career, Gerry’s work spans across numerous TV series and films, including beloved classics such as Thunderbirds, UFO, Space: 1999, and Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons.

The theme of this year’s Gerry Anderson Day is welcoming new fans. If you’ve only ever watched one or two Gerry Anderson series throughout your lives, haven’t watched any in years, or if you’re not familiar with Gerry’s work at all, then Gerry Anderson Day is a great way to take a welcoming deep dive into his classic worlds. If you’re a long-time fan of Gerry’s worlds and would like to introduce someone you know to his many works, then Gerry Anderson Day marks the perfect opportunity to do so!

As part of making the day accessible for as many fans old and new as possible, there will be a repeating 12-hour livestream for everyone to enjoy. This livestream will be a great chance for any new Anderfaon to be introduced to many classic series from Gerry’s worlds!

2024 also marks the 60th anniversary of Stingray. There’s still a handful of our unique Stingray-themed Gerry Anderson Day t-shirts available from the Gerry Anderson store. Grab yourself one to celebrate the day in truly aquatic style.

With the theme of making Gerry Anderson’s works as accessible for as many people as possible, we already have a plethora of free material to enjoy from such classic worlds as Thunderbirds, UFO, Supercar, Space Precinct, Terrahawks and more. You can enjoy several audiobook readings of classic Thunderbirds, Supercar, and UFO annual stories from the Official Gerry Anderson store. You can also head on over to the Official Gerry Anderson YouTube channel and enjoy several classic episodes from Terrahawks, Space Precinct, and New Captain Scarlet for free. There’s a huge variety of further content to experience to across our online platforms.

Our limited edition die-cast Thunderbird 2 collectable has also started shipping and is making its way to fans across the world. There’s only a handful of these finely detailed models left in stock, so be sure to place your order from the Official Gerry Anderson store before they all sell out.

Stay tuned for further updates as the countdown draws closer to blast off for Gerry Anderson Day 2024!
