Back in the 1980s - when the earth's crust was newly formed - there was an unlikely hero who rescued Metro City every week with unfailing regularity. That man's name was Inspector Gadget and, to a generation of kids, he was a god. Find out why!
Inspector Gadget - Main Characters
Inspector Gadget - A klutzy detective with a seemingly limitless collection of gadgets. He always manages to save the day (or at least get the credit) despite his blunders, thanks to a little (okay, A LOT) of help from his sidekicks Penny and Brain.
Penny - Gadget's niece and the real brains of the operation. She and her "computer book" (this was before the days of PalmPilots) were usually responsible for foiling MAD's schemes.
Brain - Penny's dog. Known for being the original Master of Disguise, Brain helps Penny to save Inspector Gadget - and therefore Metro City. He can speak to humans but it's sometimes impossible to understand what Brain is saying through his thick "dog" accent
Chief Quimby - Gadget's boss. Gives Gadget his mission at the beginning of every episode and congratulates him after he succeeds.
Doctor Claw - The main villain and leader of MAD, an association of evil-doers. His face is never shown.
Mad Cat - Dr. Claw's cat. He can't speak or do much of anything except laugh along with Doctor Claw when their evil plans succeed.
Inspector Gadget - Fun Facts
Inspector Gadget was mentioned a few times on The Super Mario Bros. Show and one episode even featured a guest appearance by a live-action version of Gadget.
In the piolot episode, Inspector Gadget had a mustache.
In an episode that takes place in an insane asylum, the inmates are modeled after the show's animators.

"Bartender, a milk... on the rocks." - Inspector Gadget
Inspector Gadget: The Original Series - DVD Review
If you loved the Inspector Gadget movie, you'll dig the old school cartoon. The four-DVD boxed set includes the first 22 episodes of the show, as well as special features like original art, fan art and interviews. Wowsers! Be warned, though - the theme song will be stuck in your head for weeks.
"All About that Bass" is a bait for money, but its much more ingenious than the usual "pretty women" draw. Most teenagers dig the "You're beautiful the way you are, everyone is beautiful" stuff, and the singer has capitalized on it and because of that...has earned a ton of fame and money
