Dick Gautier, ‘Get Smart’ actor, dies at 85

Dick Gautier, who is best known as Hymie the Robot in “Get Smart,” died Friday in Los Angeles of pneumonia, according to his daughter, Denise. He was 85.
Born in Culver City, Calif., Gautier quickly helped Hymie make an impression in the 1960s spy spoof. Despite the fact that he only appeared in six episodes over four seasons, Gautier’s deadpan delivery helped the robot become a memorable fan favorite.

Gautier’s film and TV credits after “Get Smart” include appearances in “When Things Were Rotten,” “Love, American Style,” “Fantasy Island,” “Fun With Dick and Jane,” and “Charlie’s Angels.”
