The Avengers: The Hidden Tiger Episode

Series 5 Episode 8 March 1967
Closing Scene

My father loved science fiction.

When I was young, he sat with us kids to watch "Creature From The Black Lagoon", "The Monolith Monsters", and "Them".

As a family, we watched "The Avengers", which was fairly sci-fi for the 1960's...and it was very camp too!

That television show had one episode, all about cats, and the evil people who wanted them to take over the world...or some such folderol.

Steed, with furry friend.
Mrs. Peel.
Visiting the bastion of evilness!
Inside P.U.R.R.R.
All images grabbed from the interwebs.
Nowadays, we know cats have taken over the planet, and there is nothing anyone can do about it.

I am so very thankful that my parents encouraged their progeny to read, to watch, to question, and to investigate.

  2. "The Avengers" were just before my time, but I saw all the episodes eventually. Emma Peel was stylish and sexy, and Steed was the epitome of the cool Englishman. Another series they couldn't replicate.

  4. Looks like a fun watch! One of our favorite classic 'Star Trek' episodes featuring Teri Garr also had a very interesting cat. :) It's called "Assignment: Earth".
