Uncle and aunt?

The Man From Uncle spawned a spin-off series The Girl From Uncle starring Stefanie Powers.

But the female version of Solo and Kuryakin's adventures lasted just one season.

Stefanie Powers starred as Uncle agent April Dancer (the name was suggested by Ian Fleming) with her sidekick Mark Slate, played by Noel Harrison.

Powers suffered in comparison to Diana Rigg's Emma Peel in The Avengers, which became a big hit in the USA.

Noel Harrison later guested on Stefanie Powers' 1980s hit series Hart to Hart, in which she starred with Robert Wagner.
