The now no longer online With Umbrella, Charm and Bowler website, was a site that took a humours look at the Avengers. The funniest feature was a thing called Dr. Keel's Alternative Episodes Titles Pub Game.

It's very simple: you change the title of an Avengers episodes slightly (but never beyond recognition) and give a very short yet hilarious plot summery.

(Please follow my example and post the original title followed by the alternative title and on the next line the plot summery.)

I thought this should be a fun thing to do for our forum, please join and post your contributions.

The Hidden Tiger > The Hidden Geiger:
Steed and Emma play hide and seek with an Atomic bomb.

Invasion of the Earthmen > Invasion of the Birthmen:
A couple of male nurses think that “Mother” is a woman and assume that he is pregnant because of his size. They insist on helping him with his delivery.

The Town Of No Return > The Tune Of No Return

K Is For Kill (Parts One and Two)> K Is For Keel
Some old footage of Dr. Keel's episodes was included in an episode of The New Avengers. However, to this day, debate rages whether it was Ian Hendry's voice or in fact a clever impersonator. The episode is not in two parts as it was a bit boring and no one was particularly bothered ...
