|First Get Smart Appearance||The Diplomat's Daughter|
|Additional Episodes||The Amazing Harry Hoo|
|Affiliation||KAOS (Asian Arm)|
|Defeated by||Arrested twice by CONTROL|
|Famous Quote||"Not the Craw, the CRAW!"|
Mysterious head of the Oriental Arm of KAOS.
He has several henchmen employed under him, but his most trusted assistant is Bobo, who performs torture for him.
The Claw is first encountered when he kidnaps Princess Ingrid of Scandinavia during her visit to Washington [Episode #2: "Diplomat's Daughter"]. He is later seen running a chinese laundry shop as a front for his information smuggling agency [Episode #25: "The Amazing Harry Hoo:].
The Claw is a fairly short Chinese man, who dresses in Chinese robes. He is partially bald on the very top of his head. He has a larget mechanical claw replacing his left hand. It is magnetic, allowing him to pull phones, guns, and other metal objects toward him.
Stereotypically, he can't pronounce the letter L , which makes Maxwell Smart think his name is the "Craw" and not the "The Claw". Every time Max makes this mistake, The Claw corrects him saying, "Not the Craw, the Craw!"
The Claw is portrayed by Leonard Strong in both episodes.
