Fanderson is the official appreciation society for the works of British film and television producers Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. It is a not-for-profit organisation endorsed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment, ITC Entertainment Group, The Indestructible Production Company and Anderson Entertainment. Based in the United Kingdom, but with an international membership, the club is run by a small committee of unpaid volunteers.[3]

The club was formed on 20 August 1981 at a meeting convened by ITC and Gerry Anderson. Previously, ITC had supported the various clubs and societies that followed Anderson's works; in 1981 it requested that the separate groups merge, and in exchange promised to give its full support (except financial assistance) to the new organisation.[3]
