Re: Terrahawks to Return on Audio

A little out of season now, but have you heard Zelda's Night before Christmas, on SoundCloud? I discovered it via a link on Facebook.
As usual, she's a right nasty piece of work; but it is funny that Stu Dapples wet himself! :lol:

More than Mere Entertainment

I recall that someone here watched Play It Again, Sram with the voice-actors, and Jeremy asked "Why isn't this still being shown?" It should indeed still be shown, and not just because it's a great programme: Zelda's joke about Yungstar at the end (following Cystar's query as to how will he smell) =...

Re: Gerry Anderson

What was that Zelda like, on the phone? I suspect Moid, the Unseen Menace, has been round at my flat, tampering with my heating system: the radiators became cold much earlier than they should have; and I can't find the User's Guide. Sheesh, I wanted a relaxing evening watching Upstairs, Downstairs D...

Re: If You Could Save 3 Things from the 80s...

I'd find it hard to choose between Terrahawks & the Young Ones, if I now had to narrow it down to 1. A point in Terrahawks' favour is: I prefer most of Kate's songs to the guest-star musical performances in TYO flat.

Re: Favourite monster/android

Considering Thawks names for future felines of mine..."Tiger" perhaps, for a ginger tabby. "Hawkeye" or "Kate Kestrel" would do for a skilled hunter; the other characters' names probably wouldn't work for a cat. I've got one of these little Fugly guys; the pink one on the far right. http://www.amazo...

Re: Favourite monster/android

My Kitty has now crossed the Rainbow Bridge, too. :cry: I'll get a new cat sooner or later; hopefully by the end of the year...

Returning to monsters & androids: has anyone ever liked Sram? Yungstar & Cystar = sweet in an ugly way; but Sram = undilutedly grotesque.

Were any other Anderson characters as cute as the zeroids? Somehow, I doubt it...I now wish I'd voted for the Commonwealth Children's Literature module to run; I may (possibly) have thus got to study the book of Dot & the Kangaroo (I didn't know that was a book long b4 it was a film); and Blinky Bil...

Gerry Anderson

18 years ago, I did an MA in Children's Literature. One of the modules that did NOT run during my MA year = Children's Radio, Film & Television; if it had run, I reckon a feasible essay topic could have been why Terrahawks was "not destined for immortality" (a quotation I once saw in an article abou...

30 Year Birthday Party

What food will be served at the party? Commander Makara cupcakes? PPA-shaped biscuits? White Mon-Mon marshmallows? A massive Dai-X-shaped red jelly?

Terrahawks to Return on Audio

I was thinking about Terrahawks this afternoon, whilst listening to Pick of the Pops, which was counting down the Top 20 from 30 years ago. (I used to watch Terrahawks then go to listen to the Top 40 afterwards.) Not every track gets played on Pick of the Pops; it was infuriating that the Stranglers...
