In 1983, ITC produced and released the animated series Thunderbirds 2086, which was not an original British series based on the Gerry Anderson Thunderbirds but was actually an English dubbed version of Kagaku Kyūjo Tai Tekunoboijā (“Scientific Rescue Team Technoboyager”), a Japanese anime that had an identical premise to Anderson’s Thunderbirds.
ITC licensed the series for an English dub and re-imagined the series as set twenty years after the original, thus being an evolution of that same International Rescue organisation (now a huge none secret organisation) though the Tracy family and associated characters from the Gerry Anderson series are never mentioned.
