Can you match these secret agents to the correct TV shows?

This quiz will make you say, "U.N.C.L.E.!"

Spies always make for great television — action, suspense, double-crosses, exotic locales. The spy-show genre was particularly popular in the 1960s, as James Bond inspired small-screen super agents like Napoleon Solo and James West. Of course, spies continued to ply their trade throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

Your mission: go through this dossier of character names and match them to the correct shows!

Good luck!

Grew up in the 60s. Only had three channels. 70s were more channels. So that’s my excuse/ reason for doing poor on older shows. Lol

I remember all the fanfare in the 60s when they announced that The Avengers was coming to American television. Man I was *there* for it! Plopped down in front of the TV set on premiere night and... and... what is *this* thing? Where are Thor and Captain America and...? Oh man!! SO disappointed.

Why did you assume that The Avengers (comic book) was ever going to be adapted for TV (and as a live action TV series)? The ONLY live-action show that got made from a comic book was Batman (The Green Hornet was a superhero from a radio show); if the Avengers was to be made into a TV show, it would be as a animated one to be shown on Saturday mornings much like how the Fantastic Four was and the Marvel Super Hero Show was:



Thankfully, that crappy show was superseded by the movie series and the third cartoon series, as shown here:

Pretty easy quiz. Regarding question #7, the Avengers would really be a welcome addition to the ME TV lineup. And not just the color episodes because we need to see the Cathy Gale episodes, and possibly even the earlier ones with Venus Smith.

A point of interest would be the realism of Cathy Gales fight scenes probably because she was in reality a black belt in Judo. It was pretty apparent she had to hold herself back to keep from injuring the other actors.
