Get Smart Wiki

Zach (Andy Dick), 66 (Elaine Hendrix), Chief Smart (Don Adams) and 99 (Barbara Feldon)

Get Smart is a short-lived American comedy television series that aired in 1995 on FOX. The series was developed as a sequel to the original Get Smart television series and its followup, Get Smart, Again!. It starred Don Adams, Andy Dick and Elaine Hendrix. The series premiered on January 8, 1995 and ended its original run on February 19, 1995. According to the credits, it was created by Michael J. DiGaetano and Lawrence Gay "based on the original series" but with no mention of Mel Brooks or Buck Henry. [1]


As established in Get Smart, Again!, Maxwell Smart (Adams) is the Chief of CONTROL. 99 has become a politician and their bungling son, Zachary (Dick) has become a CONTROL field agent. Zachary is teamed with the reluctant (and much more experienced) Agent 66 (Hendrix) as they try to stop KAOS' evil plans.


The show failed to recapture the spirit of the original, and low ratings with every episode receiving an average of 5 million viewers earned the series the 1995 yearly rating chart rank of 133.[2] There were not high hopes for the series as Andy Dick had already moved on to NewsRadio, which premiered weeks later in 1995.[3]
