Inspector Gadget Show Facts

Gadget, Penny and Brain combined forces to save Metro City from MAD and Doctor Claw.
Penny, Brain and Gadget

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.
  • Inspector Gadget - Quotes

    "I'll get you next time, Gadget. Next time!" - Doctor Claw

    "You never know what might happen with Uncle Gadget." - Penny

    "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.

Intentionally bad intended to be comical.  Me and my brother watched that and stopped about 30 minutes in. Ever watch Metal Tornado. We watched that all the way through but not Sharknado. It was worse than it intended to be.
