Default Interesting marionette on Ebay

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/263207620604?ul_noapp=true

Can any one identify this puppet?
It looks a contender for early Supercar or Roberta Leigh's Space Patrol.

Definitely not Supercar. The solonoids to make the puppets speak were in the heads on Supercar, and this one has the chest area of the puppet hollowed out for that purpose.

Besides, the puppet itself looks nothing like the caricatured puppets from Gerry's shows; it is likely from Space Patrol.

I also think it's from Space Patrol and an episode called The Miracle Tree of Saturn. A stowaway technician gets aboard Galasphere 347 and hasn't been through contamination. He gives what the Saturnians called "the barking disease" - really it's the common cold! I think this is the puppet who called himself Captain Jones.

That character is the episode quite a lot, andersonitis - may be it's not the same puppet but I thought it looked similar. Oh well but it was just a stab in the dark!
