The bad guys also had their own fancy hiding places for weaponry, including a false leg, a surveying tool and a spanner.
Even more fun, were the miscellaneous weapons. We have included a comprehensive list below to highlight the imagination of the writers, Mel Brooks and Buck Henry.
There was an invisible wall in Max's apartment, there was a chair that released sleeping gas, bulletproof bandages – yes, bullet proof bandages, and a remote control self-propelled doorknob, which would deter would be killers outside Max's apartment.
And finally, we have a big bunch of daft gadgets and devices that rendered the irritating canned laughter of the show, pointless: An Inflato-Coat (not to be confused with Inlafto-Girl), and Suction Cup Shoes, which were nowhere near as good as “Strato Shoes” which featured compressed air in the heel that would send the wearer into the air.
There was of course the highly useful Invisible Dust, a Canine Brainwasher, and a Heliocoat, which would lift the wearer by way of helium balloons.
Brilliantly, there was a Computer Trumpet. You ask the trumpet for a song and it plays it. There was also a Computer Piano that played songs by itself. If that sounds far-fetched, any golfer would tell you that a straight hitting golf club would be the best invention ever. Especially if it came with accompanying magnetic golf balls.
Similar to Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible franchise three decades or so later, Get Smart featured New Face Spray – just spray a new face over your old face.
And a great TV Show summariser – The Sacred Gong of Ming Chong Ho, will hypnotize whoever hears it and places them under the control of the person banging the gong.
