This Week in Television History: May 2015 PART II

Listen to me on TV CONFIDENTIAL:

As always, the further we go back in Hollywood history, the more that fact and legend become intertwined. It's hard to say where the truth really lies.

May 15, 1970
Get Smart's last episode airs. 
I Am Curiously Yellow: The Whip has a special gong that places people under his control after they hear it ring. Max gets hypnotized and steals the NARCO 512 for the Whip. Cured of his hypnotism by a pill, Max, Larabee, and the Chief capture the Whip. As the final episode of the series ends, Larabee hits the gong, placing the Chief and CONTROL in his power. The original series, developed by Mel Brooks and starring Don Adams, aired from 1965 to 1970.

To quote the Bicentennial Minute, "And that's the way it was".

Stay Tuned
