"Lavender Castle, a place of legend, fabled right across the universe. This is our quest: to find it!"
Captain Thrice, opening narration

Lavender Castle (1998-2000) is a part Stop Motion, part CGI children's Sci-Fi series, created by Rodney Matthews and produced by Gerry Anderson for Cosgrove Hall and HiT Entertainment.

It follows the adventures of the crew of the Paradox, led by Captain Thrice, on their quest to find the legendary Lavender Castle and prevent Big Bad Dr Agon from destroying it.

The crew of the Paradox include Captain Thrice, his walking stick which was brought to life during a previous encounter with Lavender Castle, Isambard (Engineer), Roger (Pilot), Lyca (Doctor), Sir Squeakalot (Ship's robot) and Sproggle (Navigator).

Lavender Castle provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Binary Suns: The planet Bharron has these, which eclipse once every thousand years. During then, Lavender castle manifests in the planet's sky.
  • Clip Show: The last episode of Series 1, Birds of a Feather, which has the villains recalling how they've tried and failed to defeat the Paradox.
  • Verbal Tic: Tin Lizzy often has a habit of copying what Short Fred Ledd is saying, which Short Fred Ledd finds really annoying.
