Crafted by certified wits Buck Henry and Mel Brooks (talk about a pair of ‘60s comedy powerhouses), this sensational spy spoof was the slapstick yin to The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’s yang. Winner of seven Emmys, the 138 episodes that make up the five series’ seasons remind us of why the lampoon is so popular. With its crackpot gadgets, bumbling villains, and plentiful ‘60s pop art poetry, this terrific time capsule offers a plethora of undeniable pleasures. Thanks to Time Life, the series also receives a collection of context that’s almost limitless. It helps cement the impact—and insanity—of this classic comedy.
