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

99 is considered the first working mother in sitcom history. Up until then most female characters who were mothers stayed home to take car of the family. However, when 99 had the twins in the final season she decided to keep working as a secret agent. See more »

The opening credits are a sequence of Maxwell Smart going through a seemingly endless series of doors to reach CONTROL headquarters.
The closing credits are of Smart leaving CONTROL through the same doors, but he changes his mind about leaving and starts back toward the CONTROL entrance. The door nearest Smart closes and injures his nose. See more »
Forget "The Producers", which was lame anyway. If you want to see Mel Brooks's earliest work, then watch an episode of Get Smart on TV Land! Don Adams plays an inept and bumbling spy named Maxwell Smart who has his share of brilliance once in a while. He works for an origanization called Control. He teams up with the competent Agent 99 who he falls in love with and eventually get married to in later episodes. Together they take orders from the chief to take down an evil syndicate called "Kaos". I also liked the hi-tec equipment they used, very innovative for it's time. I enjoy all those 'tricks' the Max and 99 pull to outwit the Kaos agents!
Get Smart is a comedic send off of those James Bond and other super-spy movies that were popular in the 1960's. Another reason why I enjoy Get Smart is how they sometimes use references from The Three Stooges, Charlie Chaplin, and Laurel and Hardy. From what I've heard, Mel Brooks was a fan of those old comedians from the past! I thought the best episodes were that two-parter involving the wax museum! It was called "House of Max". So, don't delay! Watch Get Smart on TV Land and you won't by disapointed! It will keep you laughing from beginning to end! Long live Maxwell Smart and Agent 99!
