LOS ANGELES Don Adams (search (javascript:siteSearch('Don Adams');)), the wry-voiced comedian who starred as the fumbling secret agent Maxwell Smart in the 1960s television 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 (search (javascript:siteSearch('Cedars-Sinai Medical Center');)), his friend and former agent Bruce Tufeld said Monday, adding the actor broke his hip a year ago and had been in ill health since.

As the inept Agent 86 of the super-secret federal agency C.O.N.T.R.O.L., Adams captured TV viewers with his antics in combatting the evil agents of C.H.A.O.S. When his explanations failed to convince the villains or his boss, he tried another tack: "Would you believe ... ?" It became a national catchphrase.

My dad used to love watching that television program. I saw the Biography Channel's piece on him not too long ago. He'll be missed.

Would you believe....?

I can remember watching Get Smart as a kid. There was a time after it went into sindication that you could watch it four times per day.

We'll miss you Max!

The show got funnier as I got older and really could better understand the humor. So sorry to hear that he is gone.
