Twizzle and Torchy were way before my time!
My first show that I remember was Supercar!
Don't ask me to explain...I was pretty young when Supercar began. (1959/60)
So it must have run for a while? or been re-run.
But Supercar and Fireball were the first shows I remember watching with some regularity.

...oh... and Noddy and Magic Roundabout too!

I know I did not see a lot of Fireball or Supercar
but I do remember seeing most episodes of Stingray (1963, I was 4yrs old)

and then Thunderbirds (1964/65)
I did see Thunderbirds are Go in the Cinema in '66

Unfortunately I only saw a few of the first episodes of Capt. Scarlet in '67
(because of my move to Canada)

Somehow, somewhere, I got see a few episodes of Joe90, but I don't know where?
I don't think it ran in Canada?

UFO was my favorite Anderson program...but I only ever saw one or two episodes.
Again, not sure where, could have been on British TV when I was back for a visit.
I had to wait almost 40 years, until I was able to download almost every episode online!
(This was a few years ago, before the DVD releases! I met a private collector who had converted the TV episodes)

I need to go and buy the DVDs, because I am missing the last two or three episodes.

Sorry, for my trip down memory lane...its just fun remembering!
Supermarionation Is Go!

The hoverbike was really cool. Think there's aplace that sells repros for people trying to complete their playsets. They also sell a repro of Space City in cardboard.

jagolden01, you're only 53, and here I am thinking your "sage words of advice" were coming from some one much older than me! I'm 54!.................................

Well, that would have made a difference in 5th grade!
