Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons is, as I'm sure nearly everyone knows, another of the Gerry Anderson puppet shows produced by Century 21 Productions through the 50's,60's and into the early 70's. First broadcast in the ATV Midlands area of the UK, Captain Scarlet is set in 2068 and sees the Earth at war with the mysterious Mysterons after a misunderstanding which resulted in the human astronauts on Mars destroying their base.
Being quite an unforgiving bunch, despite having the power to simply reconstruct their destroyed base, the Mysterons begin to rage a cold war on Earth using indestructible copies of people as their undercover corporeal agents. Captain Scarlet was one such agent, originally working for the Spectrum Organisation, Scarlet fought the Mysteron control resulting in him becoming our best line of defence against the aliens deadly plans.
Captain Scarlet is probably my favourite Anderson Show for just about every reason. It's a little bit darker, a little more realistic and a little bit cooler. There's a lot of good looking model work and design in the show and these two pictures don't do it any justice what so ever. Go Google Image it. Go have a look on Youtube. Its all good stuff.
