Rehash of Get Smart, but one great running gag
4 March 2003 | by (Piedmont/Triad, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Yes, this was a rehash of Get Smart, but YoYo, the robot character had a great gag in several of the episodes - he'd blink his eyes (a camera) and a Polaroid photo would pop out of his shirt pocket. I loved it! (Okay, so I was only 13 at the time, but it was still fun!)
