Dick Spanner P.I.

1 9 8 6 (UK)
22 x 6 minute episodes

Produced by legendary Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson, this tongue-in-cheek stop-motion animation series introduced the questionable talents of “The galaxy’s strangest private investigator” – a Chandleresque robot detective who operates in a futuristic parallel universe.

Anderson’s long-term collaborator Shane Rimmer (who famously provided the voice of Thunderbird pilot Scott Tracy) voices the wisecracking stop-motion P.I. as he bungles his way through two intriguing cases – ‘The Case of the Human Cannonball’ and ‘The Case of the Maltese Parrot’ – in 22 hilarious episodes.
