Episode 31 – Captain Scarlet

The Bloobcast welcome their new co host Joe to kick off 2023 with a look at Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s darkest puppet series – Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons.

They discuss the sinister nature and violence of the show, the more realistic puppets, Colonel White’s disdain for the title character, comparisons to the War on Terror, the bizarre Japanese theme tune, and the time when a major world event caused a repeat run of the show to be replaced with The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
