Besides our beloved Starfleet, have there been any other puppet programmes of the same genre that did not have anything to do with Gerry Anderson?

Yes, I can't think of any other than Space Patrol either off the top of my head. Anderson pretty much had the market cornered, although he never wanted to use puppets, apparently...

Doesn't Dave know a fair bit about Sentai shows? Power Rangers-esque ones? There's a whole load of them. I know the sort of thing you mean Mike - Star Force would fall into that genre of model work as well, no idea if it's a distinct sub-genre in Japan though...

Not really a space puppet show, but I thought you lot might be interested in this puppet-based film I heard about recently called Legend of the Sacred Stone (Taiwanese, not Japanese):http://movie.pili.com.tw/Looks fantastic! I'll certainly be keeping an eye out for this![Happosai]

I suppose you could count Button Moon, as that involved puppets (of a sort) and definitely space.It's funny that whereas Thunderbirds and Stingray became classics, GA's even older puppet programmes, such as Twizzle and Four Feather Falls, were forgotten by the world in general. I bet the Fanderson members are clamouring to have them revived?
