Don't Get Smart With Me

I was basically a little kid when Get Smart was on in the mid to late 1960's, but I do remember it.  Here's what co-creator, Mel Brooks said about the show,
"I was sick of looking at all those nice sensible situation comedies. They were such distortions of life. If a maid ever took over my house like Hazel, I'd set her hair on fire. I wanted to do a crazy, unreal comic-strip kind of thing about something besides a family. No one had ever done a show about an idiot before. I decided to be the first."

I picked up this one card to add to my 1960's non-sports sets sampler.  In case you're not as old as I am, it features Don Adams as Maxwell Smart and Barbara Feldon as Agent 99.
The answer is:  Kill him on Saturday.

The classic opening sequence


  1. Why, that's the second-biggest Get Smart trading card I've ever seen!

    Other favorite running jokes from Get Smart:
    Missed it by THAT much.
    Sorry about that, Chief.
    Shtarker, zis is KAOS! Ve don't (insert inappropriate activity) here!
    I asked you not to tell me that!
    ...AND... loving it!
    Would you believe...?
    The old (whatever) in the (whatever) trick!

  2. This is a fun and very affordable set.

  3. One of my all-time favorite TV shows - always laugh out loud funny. Mel Brooks is a comedic genius!

  4. What Tony said^. And Don Adams happened to be the perfect Max.
