| Get Smart, but much less sophisticated
In 1971, NBC aired three series pilots under the title Triple Threat on Monday Night at the Movies. One was The Good Life with Larry Hagman, which was picked up and ran a season. The second was Inside O.U.T., which was essentially Mission:Impossible as written by The Three Stooges and directed by Hal Roach. Bill Daily headed up the Office of Unusual Tactics team, whose repertoire of tricks included replacing a heavy set bald security guard with Daily in a shirt very obviously stuffed with a pillow and a bald wig with his hair sticking out all the way around it. The gags were cheap, obvious and pure slapstick. We laughed our butts off watching it. We watched the fall lineup previews for three years, sure that NBC wouldn't let this gem slip away unproduced.
