    Good afternoon everyone,
    Pictured here are 4 of 9 novels written by William Johnston and published by Tempo Books beginning in 1966-69.

    Get smart is a tv comedy series that kept you laughing at every episode. Agent 86 Maxwell Smart ( Don Adams ) was the main character depicted as a clumsy inept American Secret agent working for the organization simply called CONTROL which is a secret U.S. government counter-intelligence agency based in Washington, D.C.
    Maxwell Smart`s female partner is Agent 99 played by ( Barbara Feldon ) and their boss Thaddeus ( Edward Platt ) simply known as the Chief deals with the bumbling nature of Max. Max and agent 99 investigates and thwarts various threats caused by the evil organization called KAOS.

    The writers Mel Brooks and Buck Henry were commissioned to create a combination of a James Bond and Inspector Clouseau and Maxwell Smart was the character they created.

    There were a few different characters: Hymie the Robot, Harry Hoo, and The Claw who could not pronounce the letter L so Max would call him The Craw. These are only 3 of them.

    The series was broadcast on NBC-TV from September 18, 1965 to September 13, 1969, after which it moved to the CBS network for its final season, running from September 26, 1969 to September 11, 1970 with 138 total episodes produced.
    I always wanted the 1965 Sunbeam Tiger 2 seat roadster Max drove around.

      Good morning TassieDevil,
      I could not agree with you more that Get Smart was not every ones favorite. My sister hated it. We had a few battles over it when I beat her to the tv haha. Good old memories for sure!! I always enjoy reading your comments:))

      The old shoe phone we all wanted one of those for sure Kurt. I seem to remember in one show where his phone was disguised as a golf shoe with the cleats and he was trying to talk on it without sticking the cleats in his face too funny!!

      Hi Scott,
      Max kept you laughing for sure with his clumbsy moves and seemingly low intelligence in the end he saved the day though!! Another catch phrase: I told you not to tell me that.
      Thanks for dropping by I always like to read your comments!!
