    Don Adams, the wry-voiced comedian who starred as the fumbling secret agent Maxwell Smart in the 1960s TV spoof of James Bond movies, "Get Smart," has died. He was 82.

    Adams died of a lung infection late Sunday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, his friend and former agent Bruce Tufeld said Monday, adding that the actor broke his hip a year ago and had been in ill health since.

    I used to watch both 'Get Smart' and 'Inspector Gadget' all the time.
    A very funny man who raised the bar of television comedy.

    RIP

    Rest in peace to a very funny man indeed. I also grew up with both of these shows, and was a big fan of Adams.

    I'm going to pass on making a joke about the man who played Inspector Gadget needing a hip replacement.

    Get smart was ingenious.

    The Claw, Mr Big, Kaos, Agent 99, Chief, and of course 86.

    R.I.P, i too grew up watching both of his television shows. i remember as a little kid watching Get Smart and F-Troop on Nick at Nite. i know Steve Carell will do him justice in the upcoming Get Smart flick.

    Max (a.k.a. Agent 86) is a secret agent for CONTROL, a super secret
    spy agency (which everyone knew about). He operated under the guise
    of a greeting card salesman for the Potomac Greeting Card Company.

    Don Adams best known for his roll as Agent 86 and the voice of Inspector
    Gadget died at age 82 sunday from a masive heroin over dose. No? Would
    you belive from AIDS? Would you belive from a long battle with lymphoma?

    Yes he died from lymphoma.

    Here's a link
