N is for Ninety-Nine

Welcome to the A to Z Blogging Challenge where I will post on a word
featuring a different letter of the alphabet each day of the month of April.
My theme for this challenge is Female TV Characters.

Ninety-Nine - "Get Smart"

THE STORY: Maxwell Smart (aka Agent 86) and his partner Agent 99 are spies for CONTROL, a secret government counter-intelligence agency. Their nemesis is KAOS, an international organization of evil.

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL: Agent 99 is never mentioned by name. For all we know, her mother named her 99 when she was born. It was only a matter of time before Max and 99 would fall in love and get married. The perfect couple. He's the goofball, she's the practical one. Opposites attract. 

Why do spies wear a trench coats?

This is one show I never got into. Probably watched it twice... As for why spies wear trenchcoats, I wish I knew...or does it only happen in comedies?

Luana said...

It was a great show. SO FUNNY! Don Adams was hilarious. A spoof on spy movies and a wonderful cast. Bogart looks best in a trench. I bought my first trench last fall. I LOVE IT!

Susan Kane said...

Loved watching that show! '99' was so sexy. Barbara Feld? She made the show--otherwise it would have stayed as a slap-stick.

I loved the "cone of silence".

Luana said...

Susan: So true. Barbara Feldon. One lovely and funny lady.

Craig Edwards said...

Another of my dream women from the 60's. *sigh* That Max was a lucky man. Facing deadly danger at every turn - with 99 by his side. "And loving it!"

Luana Krause said...

Craig: I watched it when I was a kid and loved the humor just as much as 99's cool fashion statement! Girls and Clothes together FOREVER!

Tara Tyler said...

loved ninety nine!
anne hathaway was a little too confident for my taste but the movie was still great =)

Luana Krause said...

Tara: I agree about Anne Hathaway. Barbara Feldon will always remain the TRUE Agent 99! Everyone else is an imposter.
