    I was too young to see his Jose Jimenez character, but I do know him as one of the writers on one of my favorite shows, Get Smart.

    He also played a fashion designer in the Get Smart movie "The Nude Bomb". After giving a lengthy description of the man who attacked him, Dana adds that the assailant had one leg and one arm.

    Max: One leg and one arm? Why didn't you mention that before?

    Dana: You didn't ask me if he was hard to fit!

    :p RIP and thank you for a million laughs.

    My mom had a copy of this record from back them. I still get it out to play it occasionally. Good stuff.

    The Nude Bomb, holy smokes! What a nice little gem especially the football scene. Ha!

    RIP Mr. Dana....

    Yes, it was a much better movie than anyone gave it credit for. In fact, having seen all three "Get Smart" movies multiple times, I'd say it's the funniest of the three, even if it does stray a bit from the original show.
