brilliant spoof...
18 February 2006 | by (Hawaii) – See all my reviews

"Get Smart" has so many brilliant episodes, but this is one of the best. A classic spoof of all the Charlie Chan films, when Anglo actors always put on funny makeup in order to portray Chinese/Hawaiian Detective Charlie Chan--here we have the Anglo Forman trying to look and sound Asian as Master Hawaiian Detective Harry Hoo. As my wonderful Asian girlfriend said years ago, watching this episode on NICK, "He's not Asian!" But, that doesn't stop Forman from quoting Chan-style aphorisms and doing a bad Asian accent, with "Moment, prease, Mistah Smart", a favorite trademark phrase. Leonard Strong adds to the arguably politically incorrect fun with another wonderful portrayal of Asian badguy "The Craw". All in all, lets' hope GET SMART comes out on DVD soon so we can enjoy this subtle spoof!
