Gerry Anderson BBC Interview
This one got by me … until now!
Some choice bits:
It’s been reported you are making a new CGI Thunderbirds and are in negotiations to buy the rights back from ITV.
I have be careful about this, but I think there will be a new series and I will be involved. I tried to buy the rights back but I got a letter back with a flat refusal.
Emphasis added by me.
Those rat bastards! It’s his creation! His heart went into it! Parasitical blood-sucking motherfuckers! And all of you wonder why I despise Suits?
Would you ever go back to working with marionettes or puppets again?
No, I’d rather have a life sentence!
Oi, Gerry. That’s a bit harsh! I know you’ve said that before, but still.
Team America: World Police was made in homage to Thunderbirds. Did you see it?
I was supposed to meet Trey Parker before he made the film. But I think someone must’ve told him I wouldn’t be interested once I knew about the language they use – and they were right!
I have seen it and there are good, fun parts. But the language wasn’t to my liking.
I won’t take back one word I said about those fucking Suits. It’s the language they deserve!
