Format: DVD
This is the first fully developed supermarionation series from Gerry Anderson and its shortcomings are what make it so endearing to me. While his later series became very sophisticated and the marionettes act less and less like puppets, in "Supercar" you have puppets acting and looking like puppets. Sometimes the eyes are simply painted on the heads of the puppets so that they never move. The anatomical proportions are way off so that you have large, goofy looking heads on slim, small bodies. The arms tend to wave wildly about when speaking. I like all of this: The Nelson Eddy like vocal singing/shouting the opening theme song, "Supercar!!!", the very visible strings pulling supercar up out of the water, the back screen projection of clouds and water (which actually works out well here), the "not quite right" miniature furniture (later series would scale down perfectly with obsessive attention to detail), the very simple and absurdly low budget lab equipment (although the Supercar model still looks great today). This is the Anderson series to get if you really like the 1959 look of kiddie shows. It is the earliest link in the evolutionary ladder of the Gerry Anderson series. Perfectly charming and fun.

I watched Supercar with devotion as a kid, and was ecstatic to learn it was becoming available on DVD. The video on these DVDs are extremely high-quality--Supercar looks as good as the day it first aired. There are some Supercar videos available on VHS, I might mention, that look terrible! My only gripe with this DVD set is that there are only a few extras. If you're a Gerry Anderson fan, you'll want to own these DVDs.

I gave this product a poor rating NOT because of it's content but because of it's condition.

Content: It was very good quality visual & audio and was definitely a trip down memory lane at least from the few episodes I saw.

Condition: The item arrived in good condition, sealed from factory etc, however, upon inspecting the DVD's I found 3 of the 5 discs were scratched and 4 were 'cloudy' on the playing surface. I have researched into this and it seems this is a well known condition. People have said that it is caused by sub-standard manufacturing (many made in Mexico now) with poor adhesives etc. It is said eventually the DVD's will be unplayable.

This was returned with no problem through Amazon (handled well - even though not their fault). I also purchased The Fileball XL-5 and Stingray packages from the same series. The Fireball XL-5 had one very slightly spotty disc but no scratches so I will take a chance and keep it. The Stingray discs were perfect! They were of different manufacture. The Supercar & Fireball XL-5 discs have a silverish playing surface and Stingray was a goldish surface.

Hopefully this is not wht is to become commonplace in the DVD industry. In all fairness, this is the only time I have seen this and I have purchsed a lot of DVD's.

What I consider the real 'marvel of the age" is that at long last I now own all 39 episodes of my favorite 60's TV show and pop culture touchstone in beautiful clear editions. I get to dump all my horrid multi-generation standards converted VHS copies into the trash! Cool!
Better still: this is a better put-together set than the "Fireball XL5" box from a few months ago. There is one non-episode specific commentary track from Sylvia Anderson on the pilot episode, "Rescue", in which she describes the state of the company in 1959 and how they were able to get Supercar financed and on TV. There is also a great 30 minute documentary on the late special effects supervisor Derek Meddings with behind the scenes shots and reminisces from his former crew, a brief video tribute to Meddings from "Lord Of The Rings" director Peter Jackson, a 4 1/2 minute audio recording of a fan-club flexi-disc issued by a chain of petrol stations, a production stills gallery and a send-away coupon to receive a free copy of the new Supercar comic book. The episodes themselves are beautifully remastered, and look sharp and clear with little to no film defects. Thanks heavens they took good care of their negatives thru the years! It's also nice to be able to see the here-to-fore impossible to find second season episodes, with the revised opening theme and slightly modified vehicle design. (I do note, however, that my JVC brand DVD player has some difficulty navigating around the discs smoothly).
I've no idea why this show continues to bring me so much enjoyment over four decades since it first aired. But I'm grateful to be able to visit Black Rock Lab once again, and to be able to carry this icon of my youth with me into the future. So, Gerry Anderson (and A&E Video), a five year old boy salutes you with increasingly arthritic 48 year old hands.

i expected to giggle over the cheesy special effects and the obvious strings that even my six year old eyes spotted. i expected to be transported back to our kitchen table where i watched each episode with bated breath and fell madly in love with mike mercury [maybe i was a bit weird--or maybe i just knew what i liked at an early age--hasn't anyone else noticed he resembled a young sam waterston?] what i didn't expect was that i'd enjoy this collection as much as i do! it's a children's show that doesn't talk down to children; it's funny and although there'e little science in that fiction, and i no longer hold my breath, there's enough action to make me smile at the end of each episode. satisfactory. most satisfactory.
