    Maxwell Smart was a successful USA spy in the 1960s.

    The "what" was a comment usually made within the "cone of silence". When people tried to use it they couldn't hear each other and constantly ask "what?"

    As bad as that show was, I liked it much better than some of the sitcoms of today. Of course I don't have television now, so what would I know?

    Live the cone of silence though.

    Wow. I never knew Mel Brooks was involved in Get Smart. You learn something new every day. Not all of it useful, but it's still new.
