    Anybody remember this 1965-1971 spy satire, from Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, starring Don Adams and Barbara Feldon?

    She's alive and lucid at age, ironically, 86 (although she was Agent 99) and -- wow! -- she really comes off very Mary Tyler Mooresque in this interview:

    A true classic. Arguably the greatest of the 1960s high concept comedies.

    Her memory is not quite accurate, though. Buck Henry only stayed with the show for the first two seasons and there is a noticeable change in tone after that. Also, 99 does make it into the cone of silence in at least one episode.
