The meaning of the acronym THRUSH was never spelled out in the series, though a meaning was created for one of the UNCLE novels published at the time ("Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity"). See more »
The map upon Mr. Waverly's office wall is incorrect in numerous cases. For example, it shows Canada and Newfoundland to be 2 separate states. Other errors include the lack of East Pakistan and all of Indo-China is depicted as one nation by the name of 'Siam'. This map appears in various episodes. See more »
Watching a "Christmas Carol" and seeing Leo G. Carroll, more or less made me remember the "Man from U.N.C.L.E.". Napoleon Solo, in my humble opinion, was the only other spy who could seriously rival Sean Connery. Vaugn was not only kool and suave, but handsome and cunning, much like James Bond except that Napoleon Solo had a quite different style. Illya Kuryakin, aka David Mcallum, was excellent as the right hand man for solo and was the first time I had seen an intelligent Russian portrayed on the screen. Although I had previously seen Mcallum in "The Great Escape". Finally, Leo G. Carroll gave a commanding performance as Mr. Waverly, a man who had complete control over his agents yet had a fatherly kind of feel. But, hey, you all know this and now back to the movies!
