This is a great 80s cult classic I came across - Dick Spanner PI - a Gerry Anderson creation really underrated but really great - some funny gags!

Thanks for sharing this, looks really cool! (I love the atmosphere).

EDIT: Woah, I didn't realize how long this is... I mean, eleven parts? :O

While Im a big fan of Gerry Anderson's "Supermarionation" productions, Dick Spanner unfortunately is my least favorite- as much as I try to enjoy it the humor just falls short and the character designs are a bit drab for me.

Id like to recommend "X-Bomber" aka "Star Fleet" which makes use of Gerry Andersons Marionette techniques and is a stellar early 80s Japanese Sci-Fi epic! The series was English dubbed as Star Fleet and shown in the UK and later on in the USA if you were lucky enough to be awake at 4 am to catch it on MTV back in 1986. Its one of those shows that instantly becomes a favorite after a few minutes viewing! Cool
