Don Adams Has Passed Away

One of my favorite childhood TV personalities passed away yesterday from a lung infection. Don Adams was best know for his role as Secret Agent 86 Maxwell Smart in the TV series Get Smart (produced by Mel Brooks) and was also the voice of Tennessee Tuxedo.

Sorry about that Chief and Would you believe ......................... were two of his more famous lines. Hard to believe it but Don was 82. He will be missed.

Agent 86 was also one of my childhood favorites. Maybe it was a teenage favorite because I remember that Agent 99 wasn't bad either. Don Adams will be missed by many.

Yeah Griff I still remember that commercial where Barbara Feldon was lying provacatively on that tiger stroking it. Can't remember what the products was now but I remember Barbara doing some sort of purring/growling. Pretty hot stuff for TV in the 60's.

Well those memories from the 60's are pretty fuzzy now but it was eliptical in shape so I'll vote for Dome. I'm sure someone will set us straight.
