Supermarionation puppet series that told of the exploits of nine year old boy, Joe 90, who has a special pair of glasses that enable him to act in all kinds of subterfuge on behalf of the government whenever the day needs saving.
Joe’s father was a scientist and had a special machine which transferred information into Joe via his glasses for whatever case Joe was on (skills to be a Rocket pilot etc).
The theme music was particularly fab too.
