November 13, 2012 This first episode of "Get Smart" introduces the "shoe phone" to the general public in a way that is highly prophetic for actual "cell phones" that were to come decades later. The phone rings during the middle of a symphony so Agent 86 had to disturb everyone by leaving his seat to take the call while the phone kept ringing.  From Wikipedia1
Get Smart is an American comedy television series that satirizes the secret agent genre. Created by Mel Brooks with Buck Henry, the show starred Don Adams (as Maxwell Smart, Agent 86), Barbara Feldon (as Agent 99), and Edward Platt (as Chief). Henry said they created the show by request of Daniel Melnick, who was a partner, along with Leonard Stern and David Susskind, of the show's production company, Talent Associates, to capitalize on "the two biggest things in the entertainment world today"—James Bond and Inspector Clouseau. Brooks said: "It's an insane combination of James Bond and Mel Brooks comedy."

In 2010, TV Guide ranked Get Smart’s opening title sequence at No. 2 on its list of TV's Top 10 Credits Sequences, as selected by readers. This is the only Mel Brooks production to feature a laugh track.
