With a CGI reboot about to hit Netflix, now is a perfect time to think back to Inspector Gadget. The classic cartoon ran original episodes for only three seasons, from 1983 to 1986, but played in syndication throughout the remainder of the decade, and well into the 1990s, and motion pictures were made about the dimwitted cyborg detective, who needed the help of his niece Penny and her dog Brain to defeat Dr. Claw and his M.A.D. henchmen.
1. THE MAIN INFLUENCE BEHIND THE SHOW WAS A CARTOON ABOUT A ROBOTIC DOG.
Andy Heyward worked on the Hanna-Barbera show Dynomutt, Dog Wonder, which began in 1976 as part of Scooby-Doo/Dynomutt Hour before joining Scooby’s All Star Laff-A-Lympics one year later. The Blue Falcon hero needed the help of his dog sidekick Dynomutt, who was always outfitted with a bunch of contraptions. Heyward remembered the Blue Falcon not being
Gadget is perpetually high due to machine fluids running through his body
This is a theory I read on the forums, but it makes so much sense: Gadget isn’t dumb, he’s perpetually high off his rocker due to all the machine fluids, oil, etc. running through his body. Just look at his actions: He’s smart enough to utilize an upside-down umbrella as a basket for holding garbage but mistakes a mechanical dragon for a dumpster. That’s not stupidity, that’s drug-induced hallucination.
The catch is that adrenaline can override the drugs and make him “normal” again, which is why he sometimes starts kicking ass (especially when Penny is in trouble): he’s actually his real self during those times. He also seems competent and sane when he’s at home just chilling, in other words at times when he’s not using his machines as much.
‘Current’ Gadget (robot) contains the uploaded
Based on the popular cartoon character of the same name, Inspector Gadget is an adventure comedy about a somewhat naive and inept security guard, John Brown, whose big heart is equal to his far-fetched dreams of becoming the world’s greatest police officer. However, nothing is impossible. Suddenly unexpected circumstances make him the ideal candidate for a top secret law enforecment project, and pretty scientist Dr. Brenda Bradford applies her expertise in robotics to build him into a man of many talents–and accessories. Using a vast array of grafted-on gizmos and doohickies to bust bad guys, the often clueless Inspector Gadget must also employ his common sense to crack an especially complicated case. As he penetrates Riverton City’s darkest underworld, Inspector Gadget must save not only his good name and reputation, but also rescue the world from the nefarious Claw.
