This is a spin-off of the famous "Inspector Gadget" only this series differs from everyone's favorite animated inspector.
Gadget Boy resembles Inspector Gadget in a lot of levels. He's a foolish, hi-tech, determine, and clueless human like the Inspector himself. Only difference is he's a kid about 3 feet tall. He's accompanied by a young woman named Heather(who is based off of Penny's character), and a mechanical dog named G-9(a gadget robot version of Brain). All 3 of them make a great team in preventing chaos from occurring from the evil Spydra(a combination of Mudusa/a spider, completely opposite of Dr. Claw).
Throughout the series, Spydra tries to create world domination with the help of her cronies: Boris The Vulture and the twin henchmen: Mulch & Houmous. Whenever trouble occurs, Gadget Boy will always be there to stop Spydra's plans. With the help of Chief Strombolli(who's a lot like the other chief) and Myren Dabble, a scientist(who has a crush on Heather) providing our heroes 3 different gadgets that do come in handy within every episode.
Sadly this cartoon coexists in the animation world. And is highly unknown to most people. Probably because of the animation not being 100% perfect. As well as a variety of mistakes in animation,color,voice acting, & plot holes. But having THE voice of Inspector Gadget: Don Adams doing Gadget Boy, & Maurice LaMarche portraying various characters makes this cartoon worth watching.
It's not an entirely recommended cartoon for the Inspector Gadget fans. I mean if you think the movie has flaws to it, you won't believe you're eyes that this cartoon actually exists.
There's only like one DVD available for it so far. Don't know if DiC would ever consider in releasing the entire 26 episodes on a Box Set. Not when there's no big fan base for it. If I did this cartoon, I would of made sure that it be enjoyable for all fans a like.
