** TreyParkerAndMattStone were apparently inspired to make it when they found out the ''Film/{{Thunderbirds}}'' movie would not be using puppets and were disappointed.

Supermarionation is a technique developed in the 1960s where marionette heads had Solenoid motors that moved the lower lip to give the impression of speaking. The technique was first used in the 1960s British series ''Four Feather Falls'', produced by Gerry Anderson. A western with fantasy elements, FFF was soon followed by the sci-fi action series ''Series/{{Supercar}}'', which was syndicated around the worlds. Anderson wasn't the only producer who utilized articulated marionettes, but his Supermarionation shows were the most popular, including ''Series/{{Thunderbirds}}'' and ''Series/CaptainScarletAndTheMysterons''. As the technique simply cannot portray walking convincingly, most of the action is futuristic-vehicles-oriented to compensate. In fact, Anderson's company proved so skilled in model shots of vehicles that it could easily create spectacular scenes in a day that other companies tried for weeks to create before delegating to these experts.
