Many great memories over the years watching his creative and original take on sci fi. One was watching Capt. Scarlet with friends and yelling "real hands!" whenever we'd see them in closeups of the controls. And the cool Barry Gray music, the fun model work, all of it.

That was my favorite as a kid too. I loved the vehicles in that one, and that classic opening montage and theme.

Oh, those crazy purple wigs in UFO. Copied by Hit girl?
As Gram's younger sister, known as Little Avis, would later recall, “Things were mighty strange around the house.”
