The Impossible: Mission TV Series – Pt. 1 is an album of unreleased material by De La Soul. It contains material recorded over a period of years (dating as far back as De La Soul Is Dead), and was made available through the group's imprint AOI Records. The album's title, and cover, are a reference to the popular action adventure TV seriesMission: Impossible. An alternative version of the album presumably catered to the group's Japanese audience, The Impossible Mission: Operation Japan, is also available.
