Bumbling Inspector Gadget battles the forces of M.A.D. with the aid of the various gadgets he has on his person: pop-up rollerskates, extensible arms, a helicopter-hat, etc. Despite the arsenal at his disposal (which is just as likely to misfire as work properly), Gadget never seems to be able to catch Dr. Claw, the mastermind behind M.A.D. Quite often, in fact, any success that Gadget might have is often caused by his niece Penny and her dog, who Gadget consistently fails to recognize as working incognito on the case. Written by

The recurring MAD agents in the series actually had names. The names were used by the production staff, though none of their names were spoken on air during the series. The following are the names of the MAD agents followed by a brief description of their appearances.
Fred: Large, hulking build, low brow, no visible neck.
Inspector Gadget is a classic cartoon. Don Adams, of Get Smart fame, is the voice of the goodhearted but bumbling Inspector. He had it all, from rocket skates to that car with an easy chair in the back seat. This show would have been better if the entire series had more of a plot arc because then maybe every episode wouldn't have been the same. Chief Quimby gives Gadget assignments but the real detectvies are Penny, his niece, and Brain, his loyal dog. Penny and Brain always solve the case, tie up the criminals and save Gadget's life time and time again. Later in the series, Capeman shows up (basically a teen gadget wannabe in some goofy outfit). One bumbling fool was enough on the show, I hated Capeman. However, I did like the Gadget House the Inspector eventually moved into.
