Watch Get Smart

Agents Maxwell Smart and 99 bumbled around for five years and 138 episodes, not including the three movies and second series. The show pitted CONTROL versus KAOS in each episode, where Agent Smart would receive his orders from Chief and go off to defeat KAOS's newest plot to take over the world. The duo would inevitably defeat the plot and then escape. Several regulars would fill out the show such administrative agent Larrabee and android agent Hymie, and KAOS agent Siegfried. There were three movies (two features and and TV reunion movie) as well as a short-lived second series in 1995.

The series was a send up of spy movies and books that were popular at the time, and was fairly popular at the time. It was famous for its spy gadgets, such as the shoe phone, and some of its quotes entered into common vernacular, such as "Missed it by that much!" The show also did a lot with a minimal regular cast of Don Adams, Barbara Feldon, and Edward Platt; besides two others (Robert Carvelas and Rose Michtom) that played a wide number extra roles, none of the other cast members had more than thirteen episodes. It is also the first and only series to be on four major networks.
