    He had other things going on besides, of course, though not nearly as popular. I remember seeing an episode or two of this and (even at my age) wondering why Agent 86 was running a store. Neither was he very good at that. A plot centered around a promotion to attract customers – they printed bingo cards and gave each customer a ball when they bought something. Of course, EVERY bingo card was identical and they were nearly on the hook for thousands of prizes.

    I have to say I prefered Tennessee Tuxedo to “Get Smart”.

    Aw man. That sucks.
    I spent years watching Get Smart. And loving it.

    Well Hell’s Freakin’ Belles. I’m so upset I messed up that comment. Should have been:

    Would you believe I spent years watching Get Smart. And loving it.

  7. Ken Summers says:

    Wow. Just for kicks I looked up the show on IMDB, they’ve already updated his page.
    And I never knew this before: Robert Karavelas (Larrabee) was his cousin.

    Don Adams was a cool dude.
    And “Get Smart” was a cool show.

    Too bad — Get Smart was a great show. I remember the entire family watching it, having a great time!

    Thank the lord someone else mentioned Tennessee Tuxedo! I was starting to believe I was the only person who remembered it.

  11. Ken Summers says:

    Oh hell no, Lisa! Commander McBrag was my hero!

  12. Ken Summers says:

    Speaking of which

    This is the world of Commander McBragg, your hair will curl in the world of McBragg…
