This is the only "Get Smart" production that does not include the "Get Smart" phrase wording in its title. Even its television title "The Return of Maxwell Smart" did not have the "Get Smart" phrase. All other "Get Smart" TV series and movies have included the words "Get Smart". See more »
During the fight, Max has a gas mask over his face. When he takes off Norman's mask, his own disappears from his face between shots. See more »
The opening credits are based on Don Adams/Maxwell Smart's catch phrase "Would you believe...?" The words literally form the backdrop of the action; at one point "Would you believe a movie called 'The Nude Bomb' could receive a PG rating?" appears; and after Max inadvertently blows up the bad guy, the words "Would you believe a helluva explosion?" appear on screen.

In an overzealous attempt to soothe offended censors, several seemingly innocuous lines were dubbed when first broadcast on television including:
In the original version of a scene where Max and 22 interrogate a hospital patient who has trouble speaking, the patient whispers in Max's ear and 22 asks what he said - "He asked me to take my hand off his groin," Max replies. When the patient whispers in his ear again and 22 asks what he said, Max replies "He wants you to put YOUR hand on his groin." In the television version "gown" is replaced for groin in both lines.
In the original version of a scene where Max drags 22 by her legs out of a collapsing room (because she's seemingly paralyzed), she says "Max, I think I'm getting some feeling down there!" Max replies, "There's no time for that now, 22." In the television version, Max simply replies "That a girl."
Most oddly, in the original scene where Max accidentally discharges his gun when slipping it down the front of his pants, he looks down his pants and utters his trademark "Missed it by THAT much." In the edited version, he now says "Missed the bone by that much," which certainly sounds a whole lot dirtier!
Sometimes A Movie Seeks To Be Nothing More Than Simple Inane Fun!
Come on now, sometimes a movie seeks to be nothing more than simple inane fun! as is the case with The Nude Bomb. Let's face it you know going in this movie is farce it's just an enjoyable way to spend time you wanted desperately to waste anyway.
A movie about a dude in plumb paisley that wants to rule the world by creating a bomb that renders the world totally nude. Making the way clear for him to inflict his warped fashion sense on a now naked world get a grip its just fun. On the face of it the plot and the developer of the Nude Bomb sounds deliciously stereo-typical gay wanting to force feed a naked world his sense of high tone fashion.
However the movie is set in the hopelessly weird world of Control Agent number 86 Maxwell Smart and thats weirder than anything in gay life let me tell you. Max has to stop the nude bomb terror threat because, let's face it if the world was suddenly plunged into being seen in, "the all together", all the failings and small wonders of human civilization will be "exposed". Just think of the ugliest person you know now imagine you looking right at them when the first Nude Bomb hits... Yuck, gag me with a spoon. Now that I have you in a playful mood go buy the Nude Bomb movie and count your blessings if Agent 86 saves us from the Nude Bomb fright.
Of course the Nude Bomb would be great for the makers of Sport Utility Vehicle's if some men had to walk about nude because immense size and number of SUV's needed to rebuild shattered male ego's around the world would be huge.
