Go, Gadget, go...

Poor Inspector Gadget. He had all the James Bond gadgets, but none of the cool. In fact, his niece Penny and dog Brain were often two steps ahead of him in solving the crime, or even correcting his mistakes. Bond would never have stood for that.

As voiced by Don Adams? best known for his role as secret agent Maxwell Smart on the series Get Smart!? Gadget was a bumbling inspector, despite being blessed with the ability to fly, bounce, and stretch his arms to great lengths with the command, "Go, Go Gadget Arms!"

His boss, Quimby, handed out Gagdet's assignments, which usually involved battling the evil Dr. Claw and his cat, Madcat. Those gadgets included: pop-up rollerskates, extendable 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 the illusive mastermind Dr. Claw. Claw headed an organization called "MAD" (Mean And Dirty). Though his face was never shown, Claw's menacingly hoarse voice (by voice-vet Frank Welker) was enough to scare the pants off many a young viewer.

Don Adams is said to have quit the series before the end of its run, which left the title character to be voiced by an actor who didn't sound at all like Adams. The series was originally syndicated from 1983 to 1985 before gaining its greatest exposure on Nickelodeon from 1987 to 1992. Near the end of its Nickelodeon run, CBS reran the show on Saturday afternoons, while NBC presented a nighttime special, Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas, on December 4, 1992.

More recently, Matthew Broderick and Rupert Everett? as Gadget and Claw, respectively?starred in a blockbuster live-action update of the film, released by Disney in 1999.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
