'''''The Girl from U.N.C.L.E.''''' is an American spy drama which ran one season (1966-67) on Creator/{{NBC}}, as the DistaffCounterpart to ''Series/TheManFromUNCLE''. It received a PoorlyDisguisedPilot in the second season ''The Man from U.N.C.L.E.'' episode "The Moonglow Affair", which featured Mary Ann Mobley as April Dancer, and Norman Fell as her partner Mark Slate. When the series was actually put into production, the leads were recast; Stefanie Powers played American U.N.C.L.E. enforcement agent April Dancer and Noel Harrison backed her up as British partner Mark Slate. ''Series/TheManFromUNCLE'' veteran Leo G. Carroll reprised his role as U.N.C.L.E. Chief Alexander Waverly (one of the first times, if not the first, that an actor played a major role as the same character in two separate shows). Nowhere near as successful as ''Series/TheManFromUNCLE'', the show was canceled for low ratings at the end of its first season; its broadcast coincided with a disastrous ScrewedByTheNetwork scenario in which the parent series was transformed into a comedy, causing its ratings to collapse and taking ''Girl'' down with it, though ''Man'' regrouped, reverted to being a more serious spy show, and limped along for a final half season.

!!''The Girl from U.N.C.L.E.'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* ComicBookAdaptation: GoldKeyComics managed to squeak out a couple issues of a comic book spinoff.
* CreatorCameo: In the episode "The Little John Doe Affair", writer Joseph Calvelli has a part as a police chief.
* DistaffCounterpart: Of ''Series/TheManFromUNCLE'', of course.
* FunWithAcronyms
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Like its parent series, every episode was explicitly titled "The __________ Affair."
* NebulousEvilOrganisation: THRUSH.
* RedScare: THRUSH as a thinly disguised variant of SMERSH, a real-life Soviet counterintelligence agency.
* RequiredSpinoffCrossover: Mr. Waverly in a regular role in both series; Napoleon Solo in a one-episode appearance ("The Mother Muffin Affair"); while ''The Girl''s sidekick, Mark Slate, crossed over into the third season ''Series/TheManFromUNCLE'' episode "The Galatea Affair" (this is not counting the series's PoorlyDisguisedPilot, "The Moonglow Affair", which cast different actors in the roles of April Dancer and Mark Slate).
* ShoePhone: Much of U.N.C.L.E.'s spy equipment was disguised as mundane items.
* SpecialGuest: Creator/BorisKarloff in "The Mother Muffin Affair". Possibly StuntCasting, inasmuch as Karloff plays the eponymous Mother Muffin--''a female villain''!
* SpyCouple
* SpyFiction: Martini flavored ''and'' served by a hot serving girl.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: "The Montori Device Affair" was originally set to be another RequiredSpinoffCrossover pairing April Dancer with Illya Kuryakin, but it didn't pan out (thus making Kuryakin/David [=McCallum=] the only one of the main characters/cast members never to appear on/with ''The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.'' - Stefanie Powers was never on ''The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'', but her character was).
