"Build a Better Mouse Trap." The Avengers. 1963. Peter Hammond, dir. Brian Clemens, script.

Features "a high-tech mousetrap." James Murray suggests that this episode "has all the elements of the Avengers 'formula': colorfully eccentric minor characters; conflict between the old world and the new; and the motif of dropping future technologies into a historical setting" ("The 'Avengers' Top Twenty Episode Guide," Cinefantastique 30.3 [July 1998]: 47).
