TERRAHAWKS
   UK tv series (1983-6). Anderson Burr Pictures/London Weekend Television. Created Gerry ANDERSON, prod Anderson, Christopher Burr; dirs Alan Pattillo, Tony Bell, Tony Lenny, Desmond Saunders; all episodes written Tony Barwick (1 with Trevor Lansdown) except for pilot, by Anderson. 3 seasons, 39 25min episodes in all.Using more advanced puppets than in all his SuperMarionation series, with more electronic movements built in, this was the last of Anderson's sf puppet series for children, made after he had been working for some years with live-action tv (SPACE: 1999). The Terrahawks are an elite special force who must save Earth from thedepredations of Zelda, the ANDROID witch-queen of Guk. To help, they have the silver ROBOTS the Zeroids, commanded by Sgt Major Zero, who has a funny Sgt-Major voice. Most of the old Anderson ingredients are shuffled about in this attack-from-space series, but the results are tired and self-parodic.
