The Yeti from U.N.C.L.E.

Posted by: Dave Coleman on October 17th, 2012

The classic Yeti suit designed by William Tuttle for ‘The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao’ is reused in ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E’ episode called ‘The Abominable Snowman Affair.’

Agent Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum) dons the guise in order to cross the Sherpa/Tibetan border unrecognized as a political spy — just another Yeti sighting, instead!

    So is this how Tom Slick did it ?

  2. Loren Coleman responds:

    Terrible suit. Good idea. Yetis were used as cover stories for several expeditions spying on Chinese in Tibet.

  3. Chalupacabra responds:

    Seeing as how this was a state-of-the-art suit for the mid-sixties, it sure adds credibility to the Patterson-Gimlin footage. Hollywood just wasn’t making suits as good as Patty’s. If Patterson had the suit created for his film, it was a heck of a job for a cowboy.

    I’m sorry; I’m weak; I can’t not say it…
    Fangs for the memory.

  5. marcodufour responds:

    As a young army boy we did the same thing overlooking China , is this an example of life imitating art ?

  6. sasquatch responds:

    Looks like a SasMorlocki.
    What a dumb idea. Like a Yeti wouldn’t draw attention to itself?
    I don’t get it…

  7. volmar responds:

    This is an ugly suit…
