Inspector Gadget Show Facts

Inspector Gadget Show Facts - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

He has springs in his feet and a phone in his thumb but he still needs his niece to help him save the day. Get your Go-Go Gadget trivia here!

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.

Inspector Gadget DVD Rating:4
