Hymie - A self-programming, free thinking
and very sensitive robot played by Dick Gautier
on the espionage comedy spoof GET SMART/NBC/CBS/1965-70.
Hymie was impervious to bullets, weighed
982 pounds, had an IQ over 200, and was equipped
with rechargeable batteries, a television
camera, a built-in computer, a copy machine, and
Hymie's maintenance schedule required that
he oil his teeth twice a day and visit the
doctor once a month to get a preventative
check-up for rust.
Designed for $1 million by Dr. Ratton for
KAOS, a sinister criminal organization, Hymie
was originally instructed to seek out and kidnap
a scientist named Dr. Shotwire and then destroy
(Don Adams), the
bumbling CONTROL agent protecting him.>
the plan backfired and Agent 86 turned Hymie's
evil nature to the side of good.
Some of Hymie's programming quirks included
smoking circuitry, excessive neatness, and the
habit of taking all of his commands literally.
When told to "hop to it," he predictably bounced
around the room.
Hymie reunited with Maxwell Smart on the TV
Movie update Get Smart, Again! (2/26/89) where
they once again fought the sinister KAOS agent,
Siegfried (Bernie Kopell). Partick Warburton
played the role of Hymie in the motion picture
Get Smart (2008) starring Steve Carrell.
