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

In the original pilot, Inspector Gadget had a mustache. However, DIC received a letter from MGM that Gadget too closely resembled MGM's Inspector Clouseau, another bungling law officer from MGM's "Pink Panther" series. So Gadget's mustache was removed. See more »
After the Credits and the DIC logo is shown, Inspector Gadget runs on rollerskates and accidentally smashes the logo with his mallet. See more »
When dubbed into French, virtually all of the major cast had their names changed. Penny was renamed Sophie, Brain was renamed Fino, Dr. Claw became Dr. Gang and Chief Quimby became Chief Gonthier. See more »
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.
