Supercar was a science-fiction television programme; it had a run of 39 episodes during 1961 and 1962. It was the first of Gerry Anderson's shows to be given the Supermarionation label. (However, it only acquired this label in the second season.) The programme centres around Supercar a vehicle versatile enough to travel to any environment. With Mike Mercury at the controls, Supercar was used to carry out daring rescues. As with the later programme The Secret Service Supercar was set in the present day (1961).


After Granada failed to renew Four Feather Falls for another season Anderson went back to the drawing board. With the Space Age dawning a more futuristic theme was thought to be the way to go; so Supercar was created. All the subsequent Supermarionation shows were produced by ATV.
