This dvd is the first release since Fox aquired the rights to the series. The first release from Shout gave us the first 22 episodes of the series. This release from Fox is one of those "couple of episodes to test the waters" dvds we all hate so much. Just release the series and stop these innane few episode releases.

If you own the first release from Shout you will be happy to know the 10 episodes on this DVD are NOT from the 22 previously released. The episodes are here in thier entirety, with the exeption of an updated Dic Logo at the end, (and in some cases a "Cookie Jar" logo [the company Fox hired to release these]). This is a one disk, double sided unfortunatly. The episodes automatically play, however there is a menu from which you can choose which you want to watch. No special features, but there are Spanish subtitles.

The 10 episodes released on this disk are
The Coo Coo Clock Caper
The Japanese Connection
Pirate Island
Mad Academy
In Seine
Launch Time
Photo Safari
Bermuda Triangle
Arabian Nights
The Great Divide

I gave this collection 4 stars instead of 5 because we all would rather see a season release. Since this is unlikely however I would reccomend buying this dvd.

It's a shame that Shout Factory didn't sell enough copies of their first and only chronological collection of Inspector Gadget. This was probably the best cartoon of the 80s, and I was looking forward to owning the original run of episodes. After waiting 3 and a half years for more, Fox finally released this new single disc. The episodes are random, out of order selections, and like the other reviewers have said, I want sets that are in order. Still, getting this release is better than nothing. It's 10 episodes that were previously unavailable, and for that I'm thankful. Hopefully this time around it sells enough to merit more releases, preferably with more episodes next time.

I was happy to learn when this DVD came out it contained some of my favorite episodes ("The Japanese Connection," "The Coo-Coo Clock Caper" and "The Bermuda Triangle" come to mind), and they all have not been previously released on DVD sets before. The "Inspector Gadget: the Original Series" DVD set from Shout! Factory released in 2006 left me wanting more, and this gives you quite a bit to work with!
Purists be warned: "The Coo-Coo Clock Caper" does NOT have Frank Welker voicing Dr. Claw. This was not done for the DVD, but was done during the show's production back in 1983, and I remember hearing this unusual substitution Claw voice as a kid when watching that episode. But anyways, here are my so-called Gadget Factors (ala the previous DVD set review)...

PROS:
10 episodes on a single double-sided disc.
No double-dipping here; all these episodes were not on the Shout! Factory DVD set or on the previous Sterling/UAV DVDs released in 2004.

CONS:
No special features.
The print used for "Launch Time" has some noticeable DVNR on it.

EDITS:
All episodes except "Launch Time" have the episode's title digitally superimposed onto the opening scene after the intro sequence (usually in a white or red all-caps font.) When these episodes originally aired, including reruns throughout the 1990s, they had no visible episode titles! This wasn't really needed.
The original DiC logo where Gadget dots the "i" was cut on all episodes. "Launch Time" simply ends with a newer (and admittedly annoying) Cookie Jar Entertainment logo, and the other nine episodes end with the extended 2001 "Incredible World of DiC" logo, followed by the original early 1980s LBS Communications logo and a Bohbot Entertainment logo (most episodes on the Shout!

This was one of my fav's as a child of the 80's. Arrived packaged nicely, and have zero complaints. It's nice to have around the house when you want to put a smile on your face. How I miss awesome cartoons! My 12 year old loves it too!

I remember watching Inspector Gadget when I was a kid. I remember I liked OK. My kids watch DVDs in the car because we have a longer than usual commute to school and home each day. They've seen everything so we were up for giving Inspector Gadget a try. They like it. They are glued to the screen and interested to keep watching as many episodes as time allows. Occasionally, Inspector Gadget turns to the kids viewing and tells them some sort of "safety tip" like not to touch a hot stove, etc. It's a bit quirky.

As a mom, I think it's alright. Inspector Gadget reminds me of Get Smart. The overall tone of the show is unoffensive. I don't recall the bad guy being as nasty as he is. Dr. Claw was a vague memory to me from way back when I saw the show myself. But now that I am the mom, I dislike a lot of the things Dr. Claw says and does. Obviously -- he is the bad guy for a reason. But this isn't what I want my kids to take into their storybook icons. Still, it isn't so annoying that I "lose" the DVD. The kids don't seem to notice the subtleties of Dr. Claw's evil doings.

We'll keep it in our library but will not seek any other versions. I am not sure if this is the only DVD.
