Major city in Turkey and the site of The Club Tonite where CONTROL agents Tahday and Tamara work undercover as a piccolo player and a dancer respectively.

Agents Maxwell Smart, 99 and Samuels find themselves in Istanbul as part of a world ping pong exhibition tour aimed at smoking out Kubacheck, the founder of third spy network ACB, who is a ping pong fanatic.

Reality Check: Prior to 1930 Istanbul was known as Constantinople. When Max and Samuels refer to this fact in conversation they are quoting lyrics from the song Istanbul (Not Constantinople) recorded in 1953 by The Four Lads.
