Fireball XL5: The Complete Series – (DVD)


From Wikipedia:

Fireball XL5 is a 1960s British children’s science-fiction puppet television series about the missions of Fireball XL5, a vessel of the World Space Patrol that polices the cosmos in the year 2062. Commanded by Colonel Steve Zodiac, XL5 defends Earth from interstellar threats while encountering a wide variety of alien civilisations.

Inspired by the Space Race, Fireball XL5 was created by the husband-and-wife team of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson and filmed by their production company AP Films (APF) for ITC Entertainment. It was APF’s final black-and-white series and the third to be made in what the Andersons dubbed “Supermarionation“: a style of production in which the characters were played by electronic marionettes whose mouth movements were synchronised with the voice actors’ pre-recorded dialogue. Zodiac was voiced by Paul Maxwell while two of his companions – XL5 co-pilot Robert the Robot and “space doctor” Venus – were voiced by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson themselves. The series’ scale model special effects were directed by Derek Meddings.
