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
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.
5 stars for the show, Inspector Gadget, 1 star for the releases!!!!!
Let's hope the full series comes out on dvd.... the wait has been too long!
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)...
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.
No special features.
The print used for "Launch Time" has some noticeable DVNR on it.
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!Read more ›
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.
