The Mighty Atom is the 6th produced, and the 14th broadcast, of the British television series Thunderbirds.


A year ago, The Hood's attempt to infiltrate a atomic power station in Australia went disastrously awry...and very nearly forced the evacuation of the major city of Melbourne...

Now, a year later, the crook steals a surveillance device known as "The Mighty Atom"; a powerful miniature camera disguised as an ordinary looking mouse.

Now with his "new friend", he's back for another try, this time at an atomic station in the Sahara Desert and he is also determined to steal International Rescue's secrets while he's there...


  • The Mighty Atom is noteworthy for being the only Thunderbirds episode to feature the series' entire cast (all thirteen of them!) and all five Thunderbirds craft.
