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

Possibly by coincidence, there are 86 episodes in total (including the pilot), and 86 was the code number of Don Adams' previous role, Maxwell Smart. See more »

In 1985 when the show was going for its second season, the show was changed somewhat. The opening's sound was redubbed and the color process was changed to a brighter tint. The cartoon's sound was also changed. The animation was done by the same new people who animated and recorded for the Heathcliff cartoons. Also Inspector Gadget was given a geeky assistant, Corporal Capeman who appeared off and on and was removed for half the season. The episodes also went in parts of three. Each three was about Gadget and sometimes Capeman dealing with the same M.A.D Agent throwing diffrent traps at them, whether in space, back in time, or right in their very own home. See more »
"An animated version of Inspector Closeau...yet done with more conviction."
A bumbling police inspector from Metro City who was given several mechanical gadgets by a brilliant engineering professor after an accident always manages to hash up his investigative work while his niece Penny and her dog called Brain solve the cases for him yet he always gets the credit. Gadget's chief adversary was Dr Claw who ran a large crime syndicate known as MAD and was always out to control the world.
A childhood favourite of this reviewer, despite being rather skimpy on the animation at times, this was a fun cartoon show that managed to lay down a convincing sinister atmosphere. Inspector Gadget was an animated version of Inspector Clouseau with mechanical gadgetry and more fun than the latter. When I was little most programmes for kids were so shoddy, but this was one of the better ones.
