Loads more TV Themes at: http://teeveesgreatest.webs.com/ Joe 90 is a 1960s British science-fiction television series following the adventures of a nine-year-old child, Joe McClaine, who starts a double life as a schoolboy-turned-spy when his scientist father invents a device capable of duplicating and transferring expert knowledge and experience from one human brain to another. Equipped with the skills of the foremost academic and military minds, Joe is recruited by the World Intelligence Network (WIN) and, becoming its "Most Special Agent", pursues the ideal of world peace and saving human life. Created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson and filmed by Century 21 Productions, the 30-episode series followed the earlier Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons. First broadcast in the UK between September 1968 and April 1969 on the ATV network, Joe 90 was the sixth and final of the Andersons' productions to be made exclusively using the form of marionette puppetry termed "Supermarionation". Their final puppet series, The Secret Service, used this process only in combination with extensive live-action filming. As in the case of its antecedent, Captain Scarlet, the puppets of Joe 90 are of natural proportions as opposed to the more caricatured design of the characters of Thunderbirds.
Yes, this 1967 British show was meant to be "G" / "Family" rated. -I can't believe they got away with this stuff!!! ...A Hot Resurrected Babe tried to plug poor old Captain Scarlet, who in turn plugs her Real Good!!! (Check out her horrific scream as she falls to her death--- Suitable for kids? -I think not!!!) This is why I LOVED Gerry Anderson's stuff- it dared to go where none of the other boring, mindless shows of that time period went... people DIED, sometimes in a hideous manner, and it made sci-fi COOL!!!
This is the Captain Scarlet Trailer from the year 2000. It was made to check out the possibility to recreate the old series in CGI.

A short piece showing the covers of the vintage 1960s Gerry Anderson vinyl records I have in my collection. Thanks for watching.
It's being quite a while since I last made a review on my Captain Scarlet Collection, however I introduce you all to my two different scale models of the Spectrum Saloon Cars; the small car being released in 1993, whilst the larger one was released by Corgi in 2005.
