Supercar was a children’s TV show produced by Gerry Anderson and Arthur Provis’s AP Films for ATV and ITC Entertainment. 39 episodes were produced between 1961 and 1962, and it was Anderson’s first half-hour series. In the UK it was seen on ITV and in the US in syndication (the first Anderson series to be shown overseas). The format uses puppets in a technique called supermarionation, a name that was first seen in the closing titles of the last 13 episodes.
