Stand by for undersea puppet action!
One of the most fondly remembered of all Gerry Anderson puppet shows. Stingray is an atomic powered super sub working for WASP (World Aquanaut Security Patrol) in their 2065 war against Titan, despotic ruler of an undersea army intent on dry land supremacy.
This underwater craft was piloted by Troy Tempest, whose puppet was modelled on Hollywood actor James Garner, and his trusty second mate, Phones. Stingray's nautical adventures also involved Marina, a mermaid with a difference - she has legs!
In what must be the puppet world's first love triangle, Marina was rival for Tempest's affections with Atlanta, daughter of WASP's commander-in-chief. Atlanta's voice was provided by Lois Maxwell, famous as Miss Moneypenny in the James Bond films.
Work nominated by scar1958.
