Ads from the City Magazines publications

As detailed elsewhere, thanks to the efforts of Keith Shackleton the Supermariontation series were supported by the most intensive merchandising campaign since Disney's. An effort that increased with each new series and found its unequivocal zenith in countless Thunderbirds books, comics, die-cast toys, swap-cards, hand puppets, figures, plastic model kits and hundreds of other merchandising items. Naturally, this merchandising campaign wouldn't have been complete without advertisements and Shackleton had arranged for the perfect outlet: publisher City Magazines' TV21 and Lady Penelope magazines. This then is a collection of ads that appeared in those two periodicals between 1965 and 1969 [and a handful that appeared in its Dutch language counterpart TV2000], illustrating Supermarionation's heyday. again to return to the overview.
