Dick Gautier, best known as Hymie the robot in the 60s TV series Get Smart, has died at age 85.

In 1960, Gautier played Conrad Birdie in the original Broadway production of Bye Bye Birdie. In 1967 he played opposite Dick van Dyke in the movie Divorce American Style.

Over the years Gautier had parts in The Patty Duke Show, Gidget and Bewitched but it was the role of Hymie in Get Smart that made him world famous.

In the Get Smart plot Hymie the humanoid robot was built by KAOS but turned “nice” by Maxwell Smart for CONTROL.

Hymie’s first appearance in Get Smart was in Episode 19, Back To The Old Drawing Board.

Gautier died at an assisted living facility in Arcadia, California. He is survived by his former wife Tess; daughter’s Denise and Chris and son Rand; grandchildren Darby, Brandon, Megan and Elisa; and great-grandchildren Reya, Bella, Odette, Jade and Avery.
