- Not to be confused with Kaos
KAOS is the international organization of evil and the main enemy of CONTROL from Get Smart.
Formed in Bucharest, Romania, in 1904; like "CONTROL", "KAOS" is not an acronym. In an episode of the series, after making a series of demands in a recording, the speaker mentions the demands are from "KAOS, a Delaware Corporation". When Smart asks the chief about this, he mentions they did it for tax reasons.
Most of the members are claimed to have come from the former Axis Nations and the USSR, but there have been doubts and jokes throughout the series that some of these KAOS agents are not what they claim to be.
- Due to continuous episodes, background information of KAOS is always changing.
- In episode 1, KAOS was founded in 1957.
