THE LOST WORLDS OF GERRY ANDERSON REVIEWED
“The Lost Worlds of Gerry Anderson” is a fascinating compilation of the unseen and hidden works of Gerry Anderson. You get early puppet films, some pilots that never got developed and a look behind-the-scenes of Space: 1999. If you’re a British kid in the 1970s, you’ve died and gone to Heaven. If you know how this site works, then you realize that I’m Ted Danson in The Good Place. So, let’s get to the real.
For nearly 6 hours, Sci-Fi fans get a look behind the scenes of a creator that never really got that broad international appeal. Sure, he was huge in the UK and Europe…but he’s more of a nerd fetish in the US and Canada. I appreciate Thunderbirds and a little bit of Fireball. However, there’s something to respect about what MPI has done here. More influential creators need deep cut retrospectives.
It’s not easy or practical to do for everyone, but I would enjoy a small collection like this emerging every 6 months to a year. While most of this stuff has seen wide release in the UK, American audiences might be find something to enjoy here. Good stuff all around.

The Plot Thus Far
The Lost Worlds of Gerry Anderson presents for the first time on DVD, a collection of rare films from the famed creator of “Thunderbirds”, “UFO”, and “Space: 1999”!
From his never-before-seen early puppet film, “Here Comes Kandy”, to the final segment of the stop-motion animated comedy series, “Dick Spanner”, they’re all here waiting to be discovered.
Included are Gerry’s pilot films, such as “The Investigator”, the last puppet film from the original key crew, and “The Day After Tomorrow”, a rarely-seen telemovie pilot that spanned the production of “Space: 1999”.
Also from the Anderson archives is the pilot “Space Police”, a sci-fi adventure that went on to serve as the template for Gerry’s science fiction favorite, “Space Precinct”.
At last, Anderson fans can complete their collections with these ground-breaking moments, and finally catch a glimpse of these long-lost works from the incredible imagination of Gerry Anderson…
