    :( R.I.P. Don. "Get Smart" has been one of my all-time favorite comedy shows.
  3. Take care on your venture into the Cones of Silence.

    Yes, I stole that idea.

    Take care, Don.

    Same here, it was a classic, just like Mr. Adams. He was an excellent comedic actor who will be missed. R.I.P.

    Classic "Get Smart" lines anyone to honor him? One of my favorites comes from agent 99 comparing Max with agent 43:

    "You're worth two 43s , 86!" :D

    Think of the advances in cell phone technology that show promoted, we still can't get a good "shoe phone"! :D Maxwell Smart will be missed.

    I told you not to tell me that! I LOVED that show and could always pick his voice out when he did cartoon character work. I will miss him. Another icon of my youth is no more.

    Very sad indeed, but what a great bunch of memories he left us all.


    Actually, if you're like me, your youth is an icon which is no more.

  10. would you believe?

    I know, that wasn't very imaginative of me....
  11. Remember when he used to shoot things that shouldn't get shot, like lampshades and couches and stuff? He'd lick his finger and try to smooth out the bullet hole. I used to do that all the time when I'd break stuff.
