Taggert, a U.S. industrialist, has acquired a jade figure, which has great religious significance to Kuala Rokat. That nation is a small but strategically located nation which borders China. Taggert's acquisition threatens to undo years of sensitive U.S. diplomacy but there is no legal way to force him to give the figure back. Phelps devises a plan which, among other things, calls for causing havoc with Taggert's mainframe computer, Rollin impersonating an academic from Kuala Rokat and using a highly trained cat in getting the jade away from Taggert.

There were as many as 12 different cats used, each trained to do one specific task. See more »


In the beginning of this episode, when the team is preparing in Mr. Phelps condo, Barney demonstrates to the team what Rusty the cat is capable of. He instructs the cat to retrieve Cinnamon's pearl necklace that was placed in a pouch by Phelps, for Rusty to find. Rusty pulls off the retrieval of the necklace flawlessly, but when he walks back to Barney, one can see a hand holding a reward for Rusty in the left part of the screen (it is barely visible). Rusty takes the treat from the hand. The hand is not Barney's, because both his hands are visible to pick up Rusty and the necklace. As there was no-one else of the IMF team even close to Barney at that point, one can only assume it is the hand from a member of the film crew to give the cat the treat that was used to lure him in in the first place.

Person on Tape: [voice on tape] Good morning, Mr. Phelps. For the past 25 years, this country has depended on the friendship of Kuala Rokat, a small but strategic nation on the China-India border. This is the Imperial Seal of Kuala Rokat, a priceless 2,000-year-old jade figure on a golden rope. Two weeks ago, it turned up in the art collection of the famous American industrial, J. Richard Taggart. Yesterday, our government, on behalf of Kuala Rokat, requested that Taggart return the stolen jade to ...

Would YOU risk the future of the free world on a cat?!
20 April 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The plot for this one is a bit odd and makes little sense. A jade seal was recently bought by a selfish industrialist (Darren McGavin) and he refuses to sell it to anyone. This is a problem because an embattled nation regards it as a national treasure and this American industrialist's purchase he majorly ticked off the folks from this fictional country. So, the IMF Force's job is to sneak in and steal the seal--a rather mundane task compared to the previous episodes. To do so, the team uses an elaborate plan--one that hinges on a cat! Now I like cats and have two (or, rather, they choose to live in my home) and the thought of requiring my cats to DO something I want is a bit ludicrous! Plus, everyone knows cats are, by nature, evil! This and the mundane nature of the plot make this one a less than wonderful show. It is fun to watch and well made in many ways but I don't know why the team didn't just shoot the guy and take the seal!!
