Bannister (left) at Max's bachelor party.

One of a number of CONTROL agents attending Maxwell Smart's bachelor party who run screaming from the room when they learn that a bomb has been planted inside Hymie the robot, even though Hymie has previously saved their lives. [Uncredited, Episode #92: "The Worst Best Man".

Despite this behaviour, Bannister is regarded as CONTROL's top agent; when Max, 99 and the Chief are trapped in a patch of synthetic sand Max wishes that Bannister was there - because "I don't like him". [Mentioned, Episode #99: "Schwartz's Island".]
