Maxwell Smart is a bumbling secret agent, assigned by his "Chief" to foil KAOS' latest plans for taking over the world. Invariably, Smart's bumbling detective style lands him in hot water. Lucky for him, his faithful assistant "99" is there to bail him out. Written by

The red convertible driven by Don Adams in the opening credits for the first two seasons is a 1965 Sunbeam Tiger Mark I, which came standard with a Ford 260 V8 engine. The car was used in several episodes throughout the first four seasons, though sometimes substituted by a very similar-looking Sunbeam Alpine with Tiger badging. A Volkswagen Karmann Ghia was used in the opening credits for the third and fourth seasons but never used in any episode. For the fifth season, the show featured a 1969 Opel GT used in the opening credits as well as the episodes for that season. Only used in the pilot episode was an early-'60s Ferrari 250 GT cabriolet.

"That's the second biggest silencer I've ever seen"
I haven't seen an episode of this show in more than 10 years and yet all the scenes described above remain fresh...This show has to stand as one of the greatest of all time. It's hard to compare it to All In The Family, Cheers, or Seinfeld, but it's never been duplicated. Every time I hear "Not Craw, Craw" I have to smile. No one's mentioned the "Coughing Code" - when the cone of silence breaks down - always ending with Max's line - "you should do something about that cold Chief" The casting of the show was perfect. What made the show so great was that the creative plots were intertwined with crazy little sidebars - it's been years but I still remember one episode where 99 was doing a commercial in a tub, and was called away - and the producer/director of the commercial tries to coax his elderly mother in the tub - hilarious...
I wish these episodes were available on DVD...
