  • Napoleon and Illya go to Africa and run into a female Tarzan named \"Girl\" who has a sidekick ape.An African king is kidnapped.

    Of all the Man from U.N.C.L.E episodes this one was the silliest. The main ingredient in this show that added to its silliness was the man in the ape suit; he couldn\'t have kept a moron interested in this show. The female ape girl\'s acting was at the amateur level to say the least. It is a good thing that all of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. episodes weren\'t this bad or the show would have been canceled before the end of the first season. The back and forth capturing of Napoleon and Illya were also wearing a bit thin. Napoleon\'s suave character didn't shine through as much as usual either. Illya of course was his usual comical self.
