Storyline

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.

Trivia

According to the trading cards of the series, Inspector Gadget is said to have 14,000 gadgets in his body. Other facts include that Inspector Gadget works for INTERPOL (International Police) on worldwide missions and was surgically reconstructed as a bionic man after an accident when he was chasing a villain (presumably Dr. Claw), slipped on a banana peel, and fell down many flights of stairs.

This show Rocks the Casba!!!
8 November 2002 | by (PA) – See all my reviews

I LOVE this show!! I used to watch it all the time when it was on Nickelodeon (you know back when it was cool, and all of the shows they aired DIDN'T suck.), and I never missed an episode. Don Adams rocked on this show just like on "Get Smart" (which this show kind of takes off from) The best part of the show was when Penny would always solve the crime, and Gadget would always walk right into it, and get the credit (Sure it's not a good thing, but this show made it cool). I wish I was like Inspector Gadget because he has all of those gadgets like the umbrella, and the roller skates. That would be so cool if I was like Gadget, except I'd be way smarter. P.S. Don't see the movie it sucked.

This classic gets a 10/10.
