Did You Know?
[on Get Smart
(1965)] The first few episodes I saw angered me so much I felt like throwing the TV through a window. I couldn't stand the laugh track... I didn't think so when I was making them, but some of those episodes are funny, funny shows. Some are classics. I actually laugh out loud at them now.
When the pilot of Get Smart
(1965) was shooting for CBS, the producers wanted Tom Poston
for the role of Maxwell Smart, but when they sold it to NBC, Adams was already under contract with the network, hence, he was immediately cast in the role.
His "Maxwell Smart" catchphrases "Would you believe...?", "Sorry About that, Chief.", "And...loving it." and "Missed it by THAT much."
