do we know Jeff’s wife’s name is Lucille? How old are the Tracy
boys? Where is Tracy Island really located?
if we find an answer to these, or any other questions about
Thunderbirds, how do we know if those answers are from the
series…or if they’re not?
Welcome to the CANON FOUNDRY…the place where we talk about
the difference between canon and fanon. As the years go by and
fanfic writers create more and more of the further adventures of
International Rescue, the lines become increasingly blurred. The
Canon Foundry is where you can come to look things up, see where
they really came from.
Canon = Known facts that are mentioned either in the show or its
officially produced peripherals, such as the comics, the annuals, or
the reference books sanctioned by Gerry Anderson.
Fanon = Facts invented by fans during the production of
fanfiction based on the series.
