It Takes a Thief

By Wikipedia

It Takes a Thief was an action-adventure television series that aired on the ABC Network for two seasons between 1968 and 1970.

The series starred Robert Wagner as Alexander Mundy, a smooth, sophisticated playboy and super-burglar. Caught in the act by a secret government agency called the SIA, Mundy cuts a deal to stay out of jail by working for the SIA. His burglary skills come into play as he is assigned missions in exotic locales. The series co-starred Fred Astaire as Mundy's father, himself a burglar, and who says at the beginning of each episode: "I've heard of stealing from the government but not for the government." Also appearing in the series was Malachi Thorneas Mundy's SIA superior (he was replaced in the second season by Ed Binns).

It Takes a Thief was one of the last examples of the 1960s "spy TV" genre, although Mission: Impossible would continue for several more seasons.

My favorite episode of It Takes A Thief is #62 titled "To Sing A Song of Murder". This is the episode which features peformances by The 5th Dimension. It features them singing my favorite song "Puppet Man" written by Neil Sedaka. I have fond memories of watching this show as a kid growing up in the Super70s and I haven't seen it in over 20 years.
