Dick 4

Dick Spanner, P.I. is the series that constituted Gerry Anderson's first venture into stop-motion animation. The series was commissioned after an in-house pilot episode was made using the remnants of materials and models left over from Terrahawks, as well as a lot of cardboard and plasticine. It was known for its abundant use of puns and tongue-in-cheek humour. It ultimately led to Gerry directing a series of commercials for Tennent's Pilsner using the same technique.



The character Sam Silverwind in The Case Of The Maltese Parrot was modeled on Gerry Anderson.
