Produced by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, Joe 90 was a popular British adventure series about a 9-year-old espionage agent. As with the Andersons' previous efforts (Supercar, Stingray, Thunderbirds, Fireball XL-5), the series "starred" a coterie of marionettes, animated via a complicated electronic process known as Supermarionation. The series premiered on British television in 1968, and was syndicated in the U.S. the following year. Some of the best moments from the Joe 90 episodes have been assembled in this 93-minute feature. When Joe 90 folded, the Andersons moved into live action with UFO and Space: 1999.
