First look at characters for new "Thunderbirds are Go!" animated series

I like the puppets more, but here's a look at the characters in "Thunderbirds are Go!" -- a new CGI-animated series based on Gerry Anderson's original "marionation" series of the 1960s.

The 26-episode show, Thunderbirds Are Go!, is due to air this spring using a blend of computer-generated animation technology and traditional live action models.

Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike provides the voice of Lady Penelope, driven around in a pink Rolls-Royce, number plate FAB1, by chauffeur Parker.
Fonejacker’s Kayvan Novak takes on Brains and Game of Thrones actor Thomas Brodie-Sangster voices John Tracy.

In a nod to the original 1960s series created by Gerry Anderson, who died in 2012, David Graham, the original voice of Parker, is reprising his role.
