Take me to back

 

1: Don’s older sister was Gloria Burton, who helped him pen the Prisoner of Zenda spoofs, and his younger brother was stand-up comic Dick Yarmy, who appeared in two Get Smart episodes. There’s another brief note about him here.
(Back)

2: William Yarmy, Don’s father, appeared in “The Not So Great Escape” episode as “Old Timer.”
(Back)

3: Caroline (who was actually Adelaide's daughter from another relationship) appeared as a gravel voiced little person in "Valerie of the Dolls." Cecilia appeared in Get Smart Again and was quite famous in Trekkie Lore as Moogie the Ferengi on Star Trek Deep Space Nine.

4: As payment, Adams was given the option of a large salary or a small salary and a third of the shows rights as well as Max’s Sunbeam Tiger convertible. He chose the rational path: the rights and the car. Note on the car: It was totaled twice, each by a different daughter, and its exact whereabouts are presently uncertain.

5: Edie Adams is no relation to Don. She was, however, the wife of comedian Ernie Kovacs.
(Back)

6: Don's won varying types of Clio Awards for the Toy’s Games category in 1971, 1972, and in 1980. In 1966 he received a Special Citation in the Gasolines and Oils category

7: Adams actually prefers not to drink and the Webmaster actually prefers Miller. So there!
(Back)

8: White Castle is particularly infamous in the United States for producing rather diminutive yet extremely greasy hamburgers dubbed as “sliders.”
(Back)

9: Some would argue that GS95 was not all bad and had some good attributes. It did, however, lack a true comedy lead as well as (in the case of Andy Dick) characterizations that did not fit with the mold and intentions of the original Get Smart.
(Back)

10: Gadget Boy, a cartoon staple of the History Channel, was voiced by Don but sounds different from Inspector Gadget because his voice was speeded up for this character.
(Back)

11: Adams is pretty slick about signing. In the spring of 2000 he signed and put on a trench coat claiming it was the first article of clothing he had ever been asked to sign.
