Maxwell Smart, a highly intellectual but bumbling spy working for the CONTROL agency, battles the evil forces of rival spy agency KAOS with the help of his competent partner Agent 99.
This show was the principal inspiration for Inspector Gadget (1983), of which the main character was voiced by Don Adams, and was also a bumbling and inept Agent. Also, some of the lines from this show, such as "Would you believe..." and "Sorry about that, Chief", were uttered by Gadget on occasions.
... And loving it!
In the first two seasons, as Max drives up in the Sunbeam Tiger, he fails to close completely the car door while exiting the vehicle.
The opening credits are a sequence of Maxwell Smart going through various doors to reach CONTROL headquarters.
The closing credits are of Smart leaving CONTROL through the same doors, but he injures his nose on one door.
