Program Notes

Originally written for the '60's television series and currently enjoying renewed popularity thanks to the movie starring Steve Carell, here's a solid arrangement of one of the most distinctive spy themes every written.

- Program Note by publisher


Get Smart is an American comedy television series parodying the secret agent genre that became widely popular in the first half of the 1960s with the release of James Bond films. The program was created by Mel Brooks and Buck Henry and had its television premiere on NBC on September 18, 1965. The show stars Don Adams (who also worked as a director on the series) as agent Maxwell Smart (Agent 86), Barbara Feldon as Agent 99, and Edward Platt as Thaddeus the Chief. Brooks described it as "an insane combination of James Bond and Mel Brooks comedy."

The series centers around bumbling secret Agent 86, Maxwell Smart (Adams) and his female partner, Agent 99 (Feldon). They work for CONTROL, a secret U.S. government counterintelligence agency based in Washington, DC. The pair investigates and thwarts various threats to the world, though Smart's incompetent nature and demands to do things by-the-book invariably cause complications. However, Smart never fails to save the day.
