Weapons & Gadgets

Get Smart Gadgets - The spy spoof GET SMART/NBC/CBS/1965-70 and its short lived revival GET SMART/FOX/1995 featured a number of goofy and yet inventive weapons and gadgets used by the agents of CONTROL, a semi-secret spy agency based in Washington D.C..

Secret agent Maxwell Smart (Don Adams) usually carried a revolver, a machine-gun pistol, a switchblade knife, brass knuckles, an XKE-500 (gun that fires exploding bullets), an exploding wallet, and a suicide pill.

His sports car had a 50-caliber machine gun, an ejector seat, a smoke-screen device and a telephone disguised as a cigarette lighter.
