Thanks for catching that. I posted news of his death because I was hoping someone would do a little digging.
I'm a fan of "Get Smart." I watched it as a kid in syndication. As I became more familiar with Henry's other work, "Get Smart" struck me as an outlier as his main thrust was dark and often meanspirited. Also, his onscreen demeanor (bland "Everyman") seemed to be cover for a very nasty fella.
Anyway, just my opinion.

Husband came into the library this morning to tell me that he’d started his nth rewatch of Get Smart and had heard about Buck Henry’s death. Coincidences. Didn’t know Buck Henry had a darker side. That’s a shame. Get Smart is truly epic.
Agree with your points. I also enjoyed Get Smart.
