Sunday SideLines: Go Retro Get Smart





Go Retro  Get Smart




TV Series (1965-1970) "Get Smart"




Remember them? (...with the very first "Smart" phone?!)

Bumbling Maxwell Smart (Agent 86) with his competent partner (Agent 99).

Vintage.

They had clever and quirky ways of working effectively back then.

And they had some rather strange and futuristic gadgets that helped them do it.

(I LOVED the groovy ‘shoe phone’ - above.)

At the end of the day, they had a job to do, and they got it done.

It wasn’t always straight-forward,

…but there was a plan and they followed it.

I’m glad we have modern-day gadgets for our modern-day missions.








BTW: Don Adams (April 13, 1923 – September 25, 2005) was an American actor, comedian and director. In his five decades on television, he was best known as Maxwell Smart (Agent 86) in the television situation comedy Get Smart (1965–70, 1995), which he also sometimes directed and wrote. Adams won three consecutive Emmy Awards for his portrayal of Smart (1967–69). He provided the voices for the animated series Tennessee Tuxedo and His Tales (1963–66) and Inspector Gadget (1983–86) as their title characters. He voiced Sid Pickles in all episodes of Spike & Mike (1993–99), and two follow up films, Spike & Mike Movie and Spike and Mike: Got Hostaged.
