Rest in peace, Don Adams. The article said that he had been in ill health for a year now, after breaking his hip. I'm glad that his suffering is over and I know that he will live on in our memories. The article also said that he was a drill sergeant at one time - can you imagine that! Just goes to show what a brilliant man he was! Heaven will be one comic richer tonight!

I loved that show! Wish they still played the re-runs where I live.

I find that as I get older, I cannot remember which celebrities are alive and which have passed. Anyone else have this problem? And then to think that some of them are in their 80's or older. It's mind blowing. I watch the re-runs and think they are frozen in time.

So sad.

For the life of me I can't remember the name of that thingie that they used to go into to be private when they talk - but of course never worked..... anyone?

Ah yes!

Remember the shoe phone - which was so outlandish of a thought back then.

On a related note, looks like Mel Brooks and Buck Henry are making the Get Smart Movie.
Glad to see that at least the original TV show creators are the ones making it.

Love Don Adams. Loved Get Smart. I spent a good portion of my childhood listening to jokes about Maxwell Smart. That was my maiden surname. When I took my driver license test, the examiner took a look at my permit and asked if Maxwell was my dad. I told him, no, my uncle.

Yeah, used to be something I watched with my stepdad in the early afternoons when I didn't have school.

I remember Get Smart quite well, so many years ago. And I liked Don Adams.

Barbara Feldon is still alive - I saw an interview with her tonight on CNN where she discussed the show itself and talked about Don Adams. She looked real nice still.

Oh, I loved Get Smart as a kid. It's currently on a re-run on Finnish TV, quite an appropriate coincidence, I think.

I remember an anecdote someone, perhaps Gene Wilder, told on Conan O'Brien. He claimed that Adams got so drunk in their Emmy Award party, that he passed out on top of his Emmy, which made a wound in his neck. True or not, a good story.

Oh.........I was so upset when I heard that! That show was one of my ABSOLUTE favorites in the 60's.
........"Would you believe...."

Sigh, another one passes...

Excuse me, my shoe is ringing...

That was one of my favorite shows as a kid, too. RIP.
