Producers repackage earlier GET SMART effort.
20 June 2002 | by (The Beach) – See all my reviews

An attempt from the producers of GET SMART to repackage a gimmick from that TV show, namely a robotic crime fighter (Yo-Yo) who literally does what he is told by his partner (Holmes...get it?). Sample joke: Holmes/Smart: "Hop to it." Yo-Yo/Hymie: (starts hopping). In GET SMART it made for a nice diversion but in Holmes and Yo-Yo it was the entire show and way too much of a good thing. GET SMART's Richard Gautier was a perfect mime as Hymie the Robot and had Don Adams as a straight man, whereas Richard B. Shull as Det. Holmes and John Schuck as Yo-Yo just never nailed their roles. Also the jokes were stale sitcom jokes, not the sharp satire of the producer's previous effort. John Schuck was much better the same year opposite Sharon Gless in TURNABOUT, a TV sitcom about a husband and wife who magical find themselves in each other's bodies (a concept that would be used many times again in theatrical films but never as perfectly cast as TURNABOUT). Holmes and Yo-Yo had the talent, it's just that no one tried to make a good show.
