"[W]hat really makes the show distinctive is its successful integration of Brooks' slapstick humour and Henry's more satirical style."
In this lighthearted spoof of the spy genre, Don Adams played Maxwell Smart, a secret agent who was anything but. Under the guidance of his long-suffering Chief (Edward C. Platt), and catty partner Agent 99 (Barbara Feldon), Smart spent the show bumbling his way through the conspiracies of KAOS and saving the day despite himself. Created by Mel Brooks (THE PRODUCERS) and Buck Henry (THE GRADUATE), the series was marked by the pair's shrewd satire, wonderful sense of the absurd, and vaudevillian dialogue. The show's trapdoor telephone booth, phone shoe, and brassy theme song remain indelible pieces of classic television. This collection presents GET SMART's complete first season.
