* ''Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice'': a tribute to ''Series/{{Thunderbirds}}'' made in "Supercrappymation", which includes a lot of AffectionateParody of the silliness of marionettes. Ever wonder why there were never any martial arts in ''Captain Scarlet''? Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone were apparently inspired to make it when they found out the ''Film/{{Thunderbirds}}'' movie would not be using puppets and were disappointed. Many ''Thunderbirds'' fans consider it a rather better film than the officially licensed one as well.

* Also from South Africa, childrens' show ''Series/DieLieweHeksie'', dealing with the adventures of a CuteWitch in an idyllic fairyland, was filmed with marionettes. Many of the camera and animation tricks and production techniques are instantly recognisable as being copied from Supermarionation productions.
