Get Smart Wiki

General Putney (left) briefs the Chief, Max and 99 in the blockhouse.

US military officer in charge of a missile test program operated by the German-speaking "American" scientist Professor Kroeger.

Kroeger, however, is really a KAOS agent working for the evil genius Dr. Yes and when a test missile goes off course and veers toward the blockhouse he shoots Putney to prevent him from activating the self-destruct mechanism. Kroeger is then shot by Maxwell Smart leaving no one who knows how to stop the missile.

Note: Although the name Putney appears in the credits he is only called "General" in the episode.

Portrayed by Robert Terry [Episode #69: "Dr. Yes"].
