The prize of Gerry Anderson’s Supermarination empire was Thunderbirds. The series became an international sensation as kids became addicted to the family that blasted off to save the world. Unlike the thirty minute episodes of Supercar and Stingray, Thunderbirds was an hour long action show. Now all the exciting episodes arrives on Thunderbirds: The Complete Series on June 9th. Even more thrilling is that the show will be available on DVD and Blu-ray. Here’s the press release from the Timeless Media Group:
