The Cartoon Museum to host Gerry Anderson exhibition

The Cartoon Museum is to host a capsule exhibition of art from the worlds of Gerry Anderson and TV Century 21 from March.

Put together as a tribute to the man who revolutionised the world of television production using his advanced technique of puppetry and model effects called Supermarionation, the exhibition will run from 3 March to 7 June.

It will aim to take visitors back to the magical period of ‘retro-futuristic glitz, glamour and adventure’, showcasing original classic comic artwork based on the worlds of Gerry Anderson.

It’s an opportunity to relive the nostalgia of crowding around worn-out comics and dodgy TV sets, and to pay homage to the man who raised generations of children from the 60s to the 2000s on tales of science fiction and intrigue.

“Dad was a lifelong innovator and was incredibly passionate about creating great worlds and characters and bringing them to life on the screen in as big a way as possible,” commented Jamie Anderson, md of Anderson Entertainment. “Legendary artists and writers have been, and continue to be, inspired by the characters and vehicles he and his teams developed. Comics have helped expand the universe and give additional life to these wonderful shows.”
