The Original British TV Cult Classic

Avengers '64 - Volume 1:
Go undercover with the bewitching and brilliant Mrs. Cathy Gale (Honor Blackman) and the charismatic and calculating John Steed (Patrick Macnee) -- The Avengers!Stalk smugglers and assassins.Battle bogus bishops and maniacal nuns.Join Steed and Cathy as they wield umbrella, boot, savvy and savagery against some of the most memorable villains in television history.

The White Elephant:
When a rare albino elephant is stolen, Cathy hunts big game while Steed shops for big guns.Together, The Avengers cage a pack of ivory smugglers.Crawling with wild animals, including various monkeys and a leopard; strangely, this episode never shows us an actual elephant!

The Little Wonders:
Steed dons a clerical collar to infiltrate a flock of religious racketeers, while Cathy plays with dolls.A fan favourite, The Little Wonders features the only known kiss between Steed and Mrs. Cathy Gale, as well as a machine-gun toting, habit-frocked Lois Maxwell, a.k.a. Miss Moneypenny of Bond fame.

The Wringer:
While investing the mysterious deaths of a number of agents, Steed is accused of committing the murders himself!Charged with treason, he faces interrogation at the hands of The Wringer.Betrayed, bastilled and brainwashed, Steed's only hope lies in the fortitude of the formidable Cathy Gale.

Avengers '64 - Volume 2:

Mandrake:
Grave undertakings at a Cornwall cemetery drive The Avengers to dig up a nefarious inheritance plot.Shifty-eyed villains, mad doctors and merry widows adorn this fan favourite.Look for a particularly effective judo kick as Cathy fights an assailant in a graveyard.In real life, Honor Blackman broke her stuntman's nose!

The Secrets Broker:
Wily wine merchants and a malevolent medium decant a deadly plot to sell military secrets.An intoxication cocktail of s
