The spy spoof, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., was first telecast on September 22, 1964. It came to an end on January 15, 1968.
This NBC program was mainly seen on Friday nights from 10:00 to 11:00 p.m. Robert Vaughn played the part of Napoleon Solo, and David mcCallum was Illya Kuryakin.
During the time when Secret Agent films and television shows were popular, this program was tame and made some fun of the spy thrillers. The U.N.C.L.E. stood for the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. Agents in this unit were assigned cases. The two primary agents spent most of their time saving the world from THRUSH, an international crime syndicate.
