Trivia

The main characters in Supercar were not designed in-house by A.P. Films. As with Four Feather Falls (1960) the faces were first sketched by an ex-Disney animator. Sadly, his identity is lost to history. See more »

Quotes

Doctor Beaker: I really must overcome this problem.
Mike Mercury: What's the trouble, doc?
Doctor Beaker: I find it most irritating. It takes far too long to bring this liquid to a suitable temperature for infusion.
Mike Mercury: Is this part of the test for the ceramic, doctor?
Doctor Beaker: Test for the ceramic? No, of course not! I'm just making a cup of tea.

Supercar should be a movie!
17 April 2002 | by Morgus88See all my reviews

Supercar is among the best sci-fi TV shows ever produced, with the ability to create a lifetime impression on those fortunate enough to experience it. The characters compliment each other perfectly, and of course, Supercar is an amazing machine! The sound effects and theme music make my scalp tingle.

The first 16 episodes are available on video tape, and we at Black_Rock_1 (a Yahoo egroup dedicated to Supercar) hope that not only are DVDs in the works, but that the series will make a big-screen debut soon. Supercar has a strong, dedicated following, and would certainly be a success at the box office! Be sure to watch for the upcoming Supercar comic and T-shirt!
