Thunderbird 6 was the second feature spin-off from the hit Gerry Anderson puppet-animation TV series Thunderbirds, and revolved around a new addition to the lineup of International Rescue's five emergency craft. The plot sees Lady Penelope, Alan, Tin-Tin, and Parker as the only passengers on the maiden, round-the-world flight of a futuristic airship, which is hijacked in a bid to capture Thunderbirds 1 and 2. From the moment Alan arrives on a Bond-style jetpack, the film veers away from the TV show into espionage adventure territory, and while the only people International Rescue rescue are their own members, they kill a fair number of bad guys. The global tour means there are more locations than ever, and though the story takes a long time developing, the Die Hard-on-an-airship finale delivers the most explosive set piece of Gerry Anderson's career. As for Thunderbird 6, opinion remains divided as to whether it's an ingenious twist or a disappointing gimmick, but the movie's blend of model and live-action footage results in two superbly staged stunt sequences. It was preceded by Thunderbirds Are Go (1968), and the Andersons would make one further feature film, Journey to the Far Side of the Sun (1969). --Gary S. Dalkin

Customer Reviews

Thunderbirds remains one of the best television series ever made, be it in Britain or anywhere.
Michael Daly
They were too busy with SPEED RACER and MAGILLA GORILLA to take Supermarionation seriously, but I never missed an episode.
E. Lee Zimmerman
A great movie to watch, I remember these fellas as a kid, but never got to see this one till now.

This movie, unlike its predecessor, "THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO", is an original, fun piece of nostalgia. If you enjoyed the TV show, this movie was a great gathering of the best characters for a full-length romp around the world.
Brains invents something no one takes seriously - an airship. Yet despite the ridicule he suffers for his insane idea, the company built it. And it's bound to be a huge success with the wealthy who want to combine a cruise with a flight around the world.
Meanwhile, Brains is given the task of creating a new rescue craft - Thunderbird 6. This means he can't go on the maiden voyage. So, representing International Rescue on the maiden voyage of the SKYSHIP ONE, Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward, her chauffeur, Parker, and a couple of the Tracy brothers, including Alan and the lovely Tin Tin, soon find that the crew of the ship have been replaced by saboteurs. (What would an episode of Thunderbirds be without some good old sabotage?)
But the purpose of the pirating of the Skyship One seems to focus on Lady Penelope for some unknown reason.
Stopping at some of the most exotic locales worldwide, Penny and the boys must discover why she's being recorded, and what the purpose of the pirates is.
Seems a long way to go just to lure International Rescue into a trap, but hey, this IS a show meant for kids.
Of course the real surprise is the ending, when Airship One seems to be unreachable to rescue the passengers aboard, as it gets snagged on a tower, doomed to fall to the earth, killing all aboard. But the jets of the large, powerful Thunderbirds threaten to topple the huge airship as they approach. Is there a way to rescue them? What will be the new Thunderbird 6?????

Format: VHS Tape
In this DVD adaption of the movie, the makers of the film comment on how 'Thunderbird 6' was supposed to be more on the 'chit chat' and character development side and less action. Let's face it, it's kind of hard to have character development with virtually expressionless marionettes that don't smile, frown, or walk. On 'Thunderbirds Are Go', the 60s style dialogue with the limited capabilities on the marionettes was easy to endure because there was plenty of action, explosions, and other SFX. Not the case on Thunderbird 6; what we get here is a long, around the world flight of Skyship 1 and a dull script. It does get a little interesting with the action towards the end, but not enough to pull the weight of the rest of the movie.

My favourite bits in the movie is - (i) when Brains tells the men that he makes an airship, and then they laugh their heads off, when I see TB1 & TB2 blow up the Black Phantom's base, and when TB6 is finally launched. This is one of the best Gerry Anderson Century 21 films ever since the launch of the TV series.

Gawd, I miss this show.
I remember growing up. I have many fond memories of watching the Thunderbirds television program, but, surprisingly, most people my age never heard of it. They were too busy with SPEED RACER and MAGILLA GORILLA to take Supermarionation seriously, but I never missed an episode.
THUNDERBIRD 6 is the video collection telling the story of Brain's ill-fated Skyship One; once again, the International Rescue team is the target of familiar puppetry terrorists, but they save the day ... but not without an ample supply of pyrotechnics applied to hundreds of miniature missiles, tanks, and fuel silos set for an incendiary climax. Supermarionation, cleverly mixed with live action photography, make T-6 the film to watch ... with some absolutely spectacularly aerial shows of the new Thunderbird 6 plane in action.
One great flick that's as spectacularly entertaining as it is laughable (every watch a puppet shot through the heart fall from a balcony? you catch my drift).

This is an excellent entry of the Thunderbirds series. In my opinion Gerry Anderson's Supermarionation shows (Supercar, Fireball XL5, Captain Scarlet, etc) are far superior than cartoons. The sets and story lines (especially as the technique evolved through the years when the shows were in color) are so good, you often forget you're watching puppets. Hopefully other shows now on DVD in the UK (ex. Stingray, soon Joe 90) will be available in the US......FAB

the images and sounds are FAB! but the plot falls a bit short and the bad guys are too incompetent to sustain suspense, so it only gets 4 stars. still, a great buy for series fans. it has lots of extras as well, and though i only looked at the one on the biplane flown by alan, tintin & brains, it was fascinating.

Thunderbirds remains one of the best television series ever made, be it in Britain or anywhere. The premise of an organization, International Rescue, tasking itself to save lives in extremely dangerous circumstances is a solid one, and combines with elaborate sets, props, and SFX, all held together by lovely characters - billionaire ex-astronaut Jeff Tracy, his five sons, a lovably nerdy engineer nicknamed Brains, elegent Lady Penelope (the TV episode "Atlantic Inferno" explores her relationship with widower Jeff, and brings to the fore her unspoken role as Jeff's surrogate wife and mother of Scott, Virgil, Alan, Gordon, and John) and her ex-con butler Parker, whose Cockney accent (beautifully played by David Graham) remains engaging.
With the international success of Thunderbirds came two theatrical releases. It is shameful that neither movie made much box-office impact, for they both are elaborate and entertaining.
Thunderbird Six, released in 1968, is the better of the two movies, combining a strong script with the usual strengths of the show - immortal voice performances by Peter Dyneley, Shane Rimmer (an American-born actor who has appeared in countless British films and TV episodes - such as his role as the US submarine commander in the James Bond film Spy Who Loved Me - Shane Rimmer's voice performances would put Janet Waldo, June Foray, or Mel Blanc to shame), David Graham, Sylvia Anderson (the creator of the characters and at the time the wife of the project's producer, Gerry Anderson), and Matt Zimmermann; lush music by Barry Gray; elaborate effects and miniature work.
