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.
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.
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.
