Joe 90 (ITV 1968, Len Jones, Rupert Davies)

Joe 90

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.
