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

The creators first submitted the series idea to ABC, with Tom Poston as Agent 86. When ABC rejected it, they brought it to NBC, which would only finance a pilot if the role was re-cast with Don Adams, whom they had under contract. See more »

The opening credits are a sequence of Maxwell Smart going through various doors to reach CONTROL headquarters.
The closing credits are of Smart leaving CONTROL through the same doors, but he injures his nose on one door. See more »
I have always been a fan of Get Smart not only because it was a parody of the secret agent genre of film and television series, but because it was a perfect time capsule for the era of the 1960's. Just check out the episodes featuring characters such as The Groovy Guru or Jarvis "The Mad Pharmacist" Pym. The sixties were a wild era and no show captured that spirit as much as this film.
Also, let's not forget the ensemble cast that displayed such a great chemistry with each other. Don Adams, Barbara Feldon, Edward Platt, Dick Gautier, King Moody, Robert Karvelas and, of course, Bernie Kopell all made this show a great viewing experience.
