Get Smart (1965)

Get Smart (1965)

The series centered on bungling secret agent Maxwell Smart, also known as Agent 86. His experienced female partner is Agent 99 (whose real name is never revealed in the series). Agents 86 and 99 work for CONTROL, a secret U.S. government counter-intelligence agency based in Washington, D.C. The pair investigates and thwarts various threats to the world, though Smart's incompetence invariably causes complications. However, Smart never fails to save the day, typically thanks to his own dumb luck and often by 99's skills. Looking on is the long-suffering head of CONTROL, who is addressed simply as "Chief."

The nemesis of CONTROL is KAOS, described as "an international organization of evil." KAOS was supposedly formed in Bucharest, Romania, in 1904. Neither CONTROL nor KAOS is actually an acronym. Many actors appeared as KAOS agents, including Tom Bosley, John Byner, Victor French, Alice Ghostly, Ted Knight, Pat Paulsen, Tom Poston, Robert Middleton, Barry Newman, Julie Newmar, Vincent Price, William Schallert (who also had a recurring role as The Admiral, the first Chief of Control), Larry Storch. King Moody (originally as a generic KAOS killer) as the dim-witted but burly Shtarker, and Bernie Kopell as Conrad Siegfried, his superior, became the most often-seen recurring KAOS agents, both supposedly of German descent.

The enemies, world-takeover plots and gadgets seen in Get Smart parodied the James Bond movies. "Do what they did except just stretch it half an inch," Mel Brooks said of the methods of this TV series.

Devices such as a shoe phone, The Cone Of Silence and inner apartment booby traps were a regular part of most episodes.

Max and 99 married in season four. They had twins in season five. Agent 99 became the first woman on a hit sit-com to keep her job after marriage and motherhood. Even "99's mother" never referred to her daughter by name. Her name wasn't even mentioned in her wedding.
