    A terrible loss indeed, one of my most vivid memories from childhood is the blue
    liquid filling the aliens helmet on U.F.O. Scared me to death! Another giant lost
    but his legacy remains to inspire us all.

    Another sad day. He had many great TV shows, I've grown up with most of them.

    Gerry Anderson had a profound affect on in my childhood. It was a good affect. The world has lost a great innovator. I hope he can now know how positively he affected people and how much joy and fun he made for us.

    I remember UFO and Space 1999 but never watched the others He had a unique vision and a novel way of showing it. His talent, and the man will be missed.

    Sad indeed but also a joy to see how many people turned up to say their farewells,people that had never met the man but felt so strongly about his work that they travelled miles and even from other countries one in a rather dashing pink Rolls Royce.A man that can inspire that sort of devotion can never really leave us.

    Watching Stingray, Fireball XL5 and Thunderbirds were-are treasured memories and moments of my childhood, a tip of the hat in respect to the memory of the man who generously provided such.

    Gerry Anderson really understood how women should dress on Moon bases too...

    I saw Gerry about 20 years ago when he was touring the uk with his show An Evening With Gerry Anderson. It took the form of an illustrated lecture in which he talked about his career, and his most popular shows. He had Thunderbird 1 and 2 and Fab1 as well as some of the Thunderbirds puppets with him.
    I missed seeing him last year when he came to the National Space Center with Shane Rimmer for a sci-fi weekend. I have most of the dvd box sets of his works, he was and still is a genius.

    God Bless You Gerry.
