Default Thunderbirds Blooper

Just watched 'Great TV Mistakes' on BBC 3.

They showed a Thunderbirds Blooper that I'd never seen before.

An operator's hand is clearly shown holding Tin Tin's body just after Scott is shot down at the beginning.

Useless without the actual episode Dave, or even a time stamp. It may have even been an out take.

Sparse description, yes; but mention of Scott's being downed suggests episode in question might've been The Uninvited. (Gives that word a somewhat different meaning, hm?)

It's not an outtake - it's in the episode (although it's annoyingly been removed from the blu-ray versions). It's The Uninvited - when Tin-Tin says something like, 'Oh Mr Tracy, how terrible! What could have happened?'

Hands are always appearing in shot in Thunderbirds. See hands helping Sir Jeremy Hodge and Frank Hooper out of their beds in Perils of Penelope and Atlantic Inferno. Or the hand that holds the bridge up in Brink of Disaster.

Yeah, what about the hand in 30mins After Noon? How did they miss that in the edit!? :p


I'm gonna have to check TU episode now, can't really remember ever seeing an out of place hand in TB, I always rem the lump of greenery falling down in one episode tho ... maybe not paying enough attention.

The greenery is in Brink of Disaster. And there are loads of hands in Thunderbirds! There's another one in Path of Destruction when Penelope rings the bell.

Another one to look out for is bits of set being taken away or added. In City of Fire, part of TB5's wall is removed to make way for the camera, and in Brink of Disaster you can see a bit of floorboard being slotted in!

Agreed.
With respect, this thread is pointless without pics.

Not really. Some of the bloopers don't work in still frames anyway.
