FAB Thunderbirds stamps launched by Royal Mail

275x250.jpg The Royal Mail has released a set of stamps featuring cult TV shows including Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Stingray.

Specially commissioned to celebrate the 50th anniversary of puppeteer Gerry Anderson's work, the stamps are sure to be a hit with retro TV fans.

Other TV shows commemorated with the stamps include Joe 90, Fireball XL5 and Supercar, which first aired in 1961.

We are sure the stamps would also be popular with children… if only they had ever heard of Tunderbirds… and still knew what stamps were for.

Speaking of the stamps Anderson said: "I feel incredibly proud that my work has been chosen to appear on a set of Royal Mail stamps.

"And to see actual animation of the opening scenes of Thunderbirds appear on the motion stamps is really wonderful."
