This spinoff from "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." features the adventures of sexy spy April Dancer, who works for an international agency called the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement, which is dedicated to protecting the world from evil doers such as those who work for THRUSH. April's sidekick is the Brit Mark Slate, and their boss is the crusty Mr. Waverly. Written by

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 »
I must say that I have Just watched "The girl from uncle" for the first time and i don't agree with all the bad reviews it gets at all. OK April Dancer (stefanie powers) the leading character could be tougher especially considering her TV rivals at the time like the marvellous Emma peel from "the Avengers" but there's barely an episode I've watched where she doesn't knock an assailant out or high volt a fence or blow something up with a hidden uncle gadget.OK she often uses a gas spray rather than karate but she does use that too. the stories are daft as anything but executed with tongue in cheek and for fun and no dafter than "The avengers" stories or "the champions" but thats half the point! they're fun!. Its not meant to be serious!. Her English partner Mark Slate (who must be the first gay agent ever i think on TV! joke) makes the whole thing camp as Christmas and the villains are straight from pantomime. It might just be me, but some of the dialogue is funny too...and paul o'grady (lilly savage) is a fan too!. what more can I say, besides which Yvonne de Carlo (Lilly munster)is a villain in one episode and who can resist anything where Boris Karloff appears in drag (!) as "mother muffin"...irresistible madness.(but it is a bit sexist at times..hey ho cant win "em all)
