Terrible news...

I used to love watching Get Smart.

Favorite line was "Would you believe.... "

Time for an all-nighter of "Get Smart" reruns.

I don't know, with Faux News as the source, I'll bet he didn't really die.

:D

TM,

I think agent 13 was the one always stuck in the garbage can, cuckoo clock, bowling ball return, etc. Laraby was the office guy that worked with "Chief". He was always there when they used to "Cone of Silence".

Shapley,
Yes... My error.

The Bowling Ball return location was very funny.

Cone of Silence is a Classic!!!

There are so many funny moments.

Regards,
TM

I guess my favorite had to be the claw:

"I'm pleased to meet you, Mr. Smart, I am the craw"

"Of course, the craw!"

"Not CRAW!, CRAW", pointing to his magnetic claw.

"Yes, Or course, the craw."

Not CRAW!, CRAW!"

and so on...
