I have memories of being scared sh1tless by, 'Zelda', the main adversary during the entire series.

Anybody remember watching this during the 80s? Apparently this was shown in the states -- it'll be interesting to see if anybody from over there remembers it.

Logan,

Did you actually watch the series? If so, any thoughts?

I can't believe nobody else has posted -- this was an 80s classic* that I thought everyone must have seen. I guess not!?!.

You guys got me. I do not remember this playing in the States, at least where I lived at the time. I loved Gerry and Sylvia Anderson's super-marionation (or whatever they called it) stuff when I was young, and then I saw "Team America: World Police," which means that I won't be able to look at any of their stuff now with a straight face. :-)

I honestly can't remember this being shown here in the States when I was a kid.

Good show J2ME, I preferred this to Thunderbirds and Stingray; don't remember any specific episodes, though.

I seem to recall it being aired quite randomly like early afternoons when almost no one could watch it. You know; the lost hour between Neighbours and Going For Gold!

I don't think Terrahawks went far beyond the UK (maybe to Aus / NZ, too).

I watched it but I don't remember being overly enthused about it. Then again, I didn't really like 'Thunderbirds' either.

According to a comment left on this video, it was shown in the Boston area (WBZ-TV 4).

Interesting. Wonder if it was just Boston?

Decided to pickup the entire series -- fairly cheaply.
