April Dancer was originally to have been named Cookie Fortune. The name April Dancer is attributed to James Bond creator Ian Fleming, who had suggested the name for an UNCLE operative when he helped in the creation of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (1964) prior to his death. See more »
The map upon Mr. Waverly's office wall contains numerous errors. Among these are the depiction of Canada and Newfoundland as two separate states, the omission of East Pakistan, and the conglomeration of all the states of Indo-China into a country named Siam. This map appears in numerous episodes. See more »

A completely missed opportunity! It had promise, it great pedigree and decent acting talent. What we ended up with, was a parody on the original series, but without the wit necessary to pull it off. Completely wasted are Stephaie Powers (aka April Dancer) and Noel Harrison (aka Mark Slade). While the music for the series (by Dave Grusin and Richard Shores) was excellent, the scripts were embarrassingly BAD. Even help from Robert Vaughn and Boris Karloff ("The Mother Muffin Affair") weren't enough to stop this ultimate train wreck of a series spin off. So bad was the odor from this show, I believe it also helped in the early demise of the Man From UNCLE (of course, in it's 3rd season, that show had it's own writing problems). Still, if your looking for light fluff, and enjoy "bad" TV shows, you could do worse. I recommend getting the Man From UNCLE Vol. 3 soundtrack (from Film Score Monthly) and enjoy the music from this show. If this show is ever released on DVD, I recommend a couple glasses of wine to ease the pain.
