Just sharing...cause I remember doing the "open channel D" routine with a pen fairly regularly with my friends back in the day. Solo and Kuryakin, trained in martial arts, also had a range of useful spy equipment, including handheld satellite communicators to keep in contact with UNCLE headquarters. A catchphrase often heard was "Open Channel D" when agents used their pocket radios; these were originally disguised as cigarette packs, later as a cigarette case, and in following seasons, as pens. One of the original pen communicators now resides in the museum of the Central Intelligence Agency. The museum is not accessible to the public. Replicas have been made over the years for other displays, and this is the second-most-identifiable prop from the series (closely following the U.N.C.L.E. Special pistol).

Cool childhood TV memories Vampy !!

TMFU even made it into current TV pop culture in an episode of "Mad Man". In one scene, daughter Sally really "enjoys" watching the show as well. Ha, Ha...



BUT did Napoleon Solo ever visit a Tiki bar?

I do know that TV Exotica Girl Vitina Marcus made a guest appearance (again sporting the animal skin) in "My Friend, The Gorilla Affair"...



Check out her smokin'
Tiki dance scene from "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea".


For my money, Stephanie Powers in "The Girl from U.N.C.L.E." was much more Tiki.

In "The Paradise Lost Affair" episode she even goes "native"...



Plus TGFU had the way better soundtrack score. Those "wordless vocals" would play well in a Tiki bar.

Which 1960's spy really has the most in common with TIKI ??...

Lady Penelope !!



They both share a common wooden essence. Ha, Ha.

(George Lazenby is a close second).



FAB!

Here's some more fun Tiki-related spy factoids. Also it's my big 2000th post !!...

Tiki Revival art icon, Tura Satana…




Was a Spy !!

Or rather she made numerous appearances in 1960’s Spy TV shows and movies.

In two rare TV roles she was a guest star in “The Finney Foot Affair" episode of “The Man from UNCLE” (below left image), and in “The Moulin Ruse Affair" episode of “The Girl from UNCLE (she’s in the foreground in the below right image)…



She also put her burlesque skills to use in an uncredited role in “Our Man Flint”...



And in a more major role as a CIA operative in “The Doll Squad"...



And Revival “revisionism” aside, Tura (and Burlesque) had a direct HISTORICAL connection to TIKI as shown here…


(Thanks Dustycajun for the above content)

Tiki + Burlesque + Spy = Tura Satana !!

And on an unrelated note, I found out that Tura spent her childhood years in Manzanar Internment Camp during WWII. Same as my Mom !! But I don't think they knew each other.
