RIP Thunderbirds are go

Stuff reports:

, puppetry pioneer and creator of the hit TV show , has died.

Anderson’s son Jamie said his father died peacefully in his sleep at a nursing home near Oxfordshire, England, after being diagnosed with mixed dementia two years ago.

His condition had worsened dramatically over the past six months, his son said.

Anderson’s television career launched in the 1950s.

Once Thunderbirds aired in the 1960s, “Thunderbirds are go!” became a catchphrase for generations.

I loved Thunderbirds. I even knew trivia such as Thunderbird 4 was (almost) always in pod four of Thunderbird 2.

And of course there was Thundebird 6 also!

A great pioneer show.
