Japanese Supermarionation Opening Titles.....With Translated Lyrics!


     Here's something fun!  The Japanese opening titles to the Supermarionation shows Stingray, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Joe 90, and the live action series UFO.  The real bonus here is that the songs have English subtitles!  The translated lyrics offer an interesting insight into how the Japanese viewed these iconic shows. Be sure to stick around to the very end to see the subtitled Mysteron voice narration from the beginning of Captain Scarlet.  I found this on Youtube and couldn't resist posting it.  Enjoy!

  1. It's like being in an alternative universe. Thankfully , the Japanese were able to get past those awful intro songs and make the series' successful there.

  2. I must admit I like the line the Captain Scarlet song about about breaking the robot's raygun.
