Jim Phelps is the head of a super-secret government agency, the IMF (Impossible Missions Force), and is often given secret anonymous covert missions to attempt. Quite often, they are unmasking criminals or rescuing hostages. He picks his team depending on which tasks need to be done. One thing is vital on an Impossible Mission: the mission must be carried out in entire secrecy, often relying on high-tech equipment and elaborate deceptions.Written by

In multiple cases, Barney acts as a character such as a guard or an electrical worker in Eastern Europe. Since Eastern Europe had virtually no immigration from Africa during the 1960s, Barney's obvious African heritage would arouse immediate and very consequential suspicion. See more »

As always, should you or any of your IM force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. Good luck, Jim. This tape will self-destruct in five seconds.

During the first season, Martin Landau was credited as a special guest star. This was because Landau refused to sign a standard five-year contract, but producer Bruce Geller wanted him badly enough that he agreed to use him on a "guest star" basis. Although Landau ended up appearing in a majority of the Season One episodes, he didn't sign a contract (and then only for a year at a time) until the second season. See more »
Little Desilu had the 2 best TV series of all time!
Not counting Lucy's own I Love Lucy, Desilu had the 2 best shows of the 60's "Mission" & "Star Trek". Both shows in their own style kept you coming back for more each week. When Lucille Ball sold Desilu to Paramount in the 60's there could not have been anyone in the Paramount board room who could have envisioned the amount of money they would make from these 2 TV icons. Certainly the steal of the century for Paramount. Now if Paramount would only release "Mission" on DVD, that would make it complete. And as an aside to the reviewer who stated that Greg Morris was the only actor to be on the show from start to end, Peter Lupus was also on from start to end.
