History WMG / Thunderbirds

Go To



Seriously, they try to keep everything hush-hush, yet they go around in labeled vehicles, are known to other organisations (case in point, Zero-X mention them by name in ''Film/ThunderbirdsAreGo''), and even [[Fridge/{{Thunderbirds}} seem to take the time to introduce themselves by name]]. While they do wear disguises in public, it's likely that they're more because they're basically international celebrities at this point, and don't want to draw attention as a result. I would say that the existence of the organisation itself is relatively well-known, with the members being less identifiable, but the ''real'' secret is their machines. All of the secrecy is solely to keep the Thunderbirds themselves secret, and IR itself is only a secondary concern at best.

** I love this idea! Not least because it actually makes sense chronologically - Penny's paper says it's summer of 2068, which means ''Captain Scarlet'' is actually happening concurrently and the Mysteron war is ongoing. One wonders if Scarlet and co. were up on Cloudbase trying to decode some mysterious riddle while International Rescue saved the day.


To be more precise: he is The Hood brought back to life by the mysterons as one of their agents after Lady Penelope and Parker originally killed him and his accomplice in the previous movie (They shot down The Hoods helicopter).

* Jeff was all for creating a Thunderbird 6, he said as much to Brains at the start of that film. His only problem was that Brainsí TB6 designs were pretty much just specialist pod vehicles (hello, TB4) not main TB craft.

* Speaking of hair, it would explain how the five sons of apparently the same mother and father are black-haired, brown, blonde and ginger...

* ''and no one is simply walking around''. Have you seen how hard it is to get a puppet to walk properly!? As we've seen in Thunderbirds and other Supermarionation shows, the people seem to rarely walk anywhere; the Tracey's get to their craft with barely a few steps, Captain Scarlet had spinning desks and travelators galore... people in the future are just lazy!


** Various Captain Scarlet among Gerry Anderson material (mainly Century 21) state there was an Atomic War spanning 2028-2034 (which took the lives of Captain Black's parents) so that idea may not be that far off.
