Get Smart is an American comedy television series, parodying the secret agent genre that had become widely popular in the first half of the 1960s with the release of James Bond films. The program was created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry, and had its television premiere on NBC on September 18, 1965. The show stars Don Adams (who also worked as a director on the series) as agent Maxwell Smart (Agent 86), Barbara Feldon as Agent 99, and Edward Platt as Thaddeus the Chief. Henry said that they created the show at the request of Daniel Melnick to capitalize on James Bond and Inspector Clouseau, “the two biggest things in the entertainment world today”. Brooks described it as “an insane combination of James Bond and Mel Brooks comedy”.

The series centers on bumbling secret Agent 86, Maxwell Smart and his female partner, Agent 99. They work for CONTROL, a secret U.S. government counterintelligence agency based in Washington, DC. The pair investigates and thwarts various threats to the world, though Smart’s incompetent nature and demands to do things by-the-book invariably cause complications. However, Smart never fails to save the day. Looking on is the long-suffering head of CONTROL, who is addressed simply as “Chief” and who often works alongside his incompetent assistant, Larabee. The principal nemesis of CONTROL is KAOS, described as “an international organization of evil”. Siegfried, assisted by his bumbling lackey Shtarker, is Smart’s archenemy. The enemies, world-takeover plots, and gadgets seen in Get Smart were a parody of the James Bond film franchise. “Do what they did except just stretch it half an inch,” Mel Brooks said of the methods of this TV series.
