Product Description

The world's greatest bionic detective is back and more bumbling than ever! It's gadgets galore as the inspector gets caught up in a plot to steal Metro City's newest attraction: a prehistoric giant flying lizard egg that's ready to hatch! Can Gadget crack


Wowsers, Inspector Gadget is back for an hour of animated fun, based on the original cartoon series (1983-1986) about a bumbling bionic police investigator who saves the day against the wily ne’er do well, Dr. Claw. Since the show’s cancellation, a number of spinoffs, sequels, and feature films have tried (with varying success) to capture the essence of the original tale with its distinct characters. Kudos to this rendition for staying true to the series’ vintage style, aided by the veteran voice-over of Maurice LaMarche (Animaniacs) as Gadget. The story opens in Metro City where tourism is plummeting as Dr. Claw makes known his plans for world domination. Inspector Gadget takes the case, yet is quickly distracted by the discovery of a giant egg which hatches a prehistoric flying lizard. The scaly reptile becomes the story’s requisite supervillain, which Claw quickly employs for his own gain. The inspector’s gadgetry is as impressive as ever, while the banter with his trusty gadgetmobile (voiced by Bernie Mac) offers plenty of laughs. Meanwhile, Gadget’s niece, Penny, supplies the investigative smarts along with science whiz and best pal Loony Purkle. Since Gadget blends the best of Jacques Clouseau and Maxwell Smart, fans might miss the voice of Don Adams, though LaMarche is no stranger to the show and likely will continue as Gadget, especially since the ending leaves plenty of room for a sequel. (All ages) --Lynn Gibson

The graphics were not that good.

My kids (6 and 4) watched it, but even they didn't ask to see it again.
My Grandpa watched it with me and didn't like it very much.

Ah, good ol' Inspector Gadget. I have many fond memories of watching with laughter and excitement every Saturday morning as the good-natured, although often times misdirected, Inspector Gadget lumbered around some dangerous building or trap-infested jungle in search of clues that would solve the case-of-the-week. Often times his niece, Penny, and their dog, Brain, would pull some miraculous miracle in the nick of time that would save Uncle Gadget from his impeding doom. Other times, Gadget's typical "slip-up" would actually result in the foiling of Dr. Claw's dastardly deed-of-the-week. Either way, Inspector Gadget's clueless nature is what made the show so enjoyable. That is why when Disney announced they were making a live action movie based on the cartoon, I could hardly wait to see it in theaters.

Unfortunately, my memories of that movie are not nearly as fond as that of the cartoon, and that is why I never watched the sequel (although I hear it was equally as bad, if not worse). The movie lacked the charm of the cartoon, and it hardly seemed to be little more than loosely based off the show. That is why when I heard Inspector Gadget was getting yet another modern day facelift, this time through CGI, I found myself to be far more hesitant in picking up a copy. Surprisingly, my hesitation wasn't warranted.

Inspector Gadget's Biggest Caper Ever is by far, the closest thing to the original cartoon that has been released so far. Granted, there is probably enough in the movie to set it apart from the cartoon (such as the Gadget mobile being like the one in Disney's movie, where it talks and is an actual character) but, in my honest opinion, there is enough nods to the cartoon that will satisfy most fans of the original.

It's been a long time since I've seen the TV show, but I can still fully remember the theme music and how fun it is. So when I found out that there was a new CGI-animated version of Inspector Gadget, I just had to take a look.

I wasn't disappointed. This is a fun, snappy film that stays largely true to the style of the TV series. Some fun updates are a more hip version of the theme song and Bernie Mac as the voice of the Gadget "G" Mobile. (Whose sharp, witty, funny commentary adds a lot.) I agree that Penny doesn't seem quite as smart as the TV show. The most annoying subplot in this movie involved her and a character named Loony, who wanted to give her tickets to a concert, which dragged out way too long (and popped up way too many times). But otherwise, this film was great.

Some of my favorite lines came from Chief Quimby in relation to the ridiculous, pompous, neurotic, self-absorbed mayor. At one point, the mayor asks some sort of stupid question about where something is and Quimby responds with a wonderfully humorous line that I won't spoil here.

Claw is, of course, the main villain and his cat is with him as well.

This being a Lion's Gate release, there's some wonderful special features. Tehre are several deleted scenes, most of them in storyboard film. There are also some bloopers, which have obviously been created just for laughs. There's a short Build Your Own Gadget game, which is just okay. There are also trailers and fully animated menus showing the scenes in the movie.

If you ever loved Inspector Gadget, or just wanna see a great DVD, then be sure to give this one a look.

Looks more like a cheap video game version of the cartoon series. Very difficult to watch even on our HDTV

Like many kids in the early 1980s, I remember the Inspector Gadget franchise pretty fondly. While it lacked the fantastical elements I craved in my daily He-Man fix and the over-the-top do-gooder ways of Superfriends on the weekends, it was always a treat to visit Metro City's bionic crime fighter, his niece and the true "brains" behind the operation; Brain the dog.

Naturally over time, the charms of the show faded to the recesses of memory and when rumors of the 1999 live-action version began to circulate, I was immediately doubt-stricken. To me the whole Inspector Gadget concept was birthed on the principles of cartoonism: The laws of physics are intermittent at best, bombs are always of the black cherry (with lit wick) variety, dogs (well one in particular) walk upright and do their best to talk- it just wasn't the type of stuff made to be taken seriously.

Well of course the movie came and went and somehow so did a sequel but the true vibe of the cartoon seemed doomed to fade into absolute obscurity. When, in 2005 it was announced a computer generated animated feature film would be released once again centering on the good Inspector and his pals, some hope was restored.

After finally having had to enjoy the film, I have to say that fans of the original incarnation will certainly find much more to be pleased about here than they would have in either of the live action incarnations.

For starters, this piece was created by Canada's Mainframe Entertainment. If the name doesn't ring any bells, rest assured these guys were doing the CG cartoon thing even back when Pixar was primarily a software company.
