"...hysterically funny and totally timeless. Cynthia Boris, DVD Verdict
"The brainchild of Buck Henry (The Graduate) and Mel Brooks (The Producers), Get Smart is just plain funny. Dan Mancini, DVD Verdict

"...has proven nearly as durable as the James Bond and Pink Panther franchises that inspired it. Nathan Rabin, The Onion A.V. Club
Editor's NoteIn this lighthearted spoof of the spy genre, Don Adams played Maxwell Smart, a secret agent who was anything but. Under the guidance of his long-suffering Chief (Edward C. Platt), and catty partner, Agent 99 (Barbara Feldon), Smart spent the show bumbling his way through the conspiracies of KAOS and saving the day despite himself. Created by Mel Brooks (THE PRODUCERS) and Buck Henry (THE GRADUATE), the series was powered by the pair's shrewd satire, firm grasp of the absurd, and vaudevillian dialogue. Its trapdoor telephone booth, phone shoe, and brassy theme song remain indelible pieces of classic television. This release includes the series? complete fourth season.
