Inspector Gadget

Revealing mistake: At the party where Inspector Gadget lights a cigar for Scolex, he uses his thumb which flips open to reveal a flame. When they cut to the close-up of Scolex getting the cigar lit, you can see that there is a hand holding up a traditional lighter, and not Inspector Gadget's thumb any more.

Revealing mistake: When Robo-Gadget is rampaging through the city pretending to be Godzilla (a nod to another film Matthew Broderick was in) you see a shadow on a wall that is supposed to be Robo-Gadget's hands doing the Godzilla thing. You can tell from the shadow that whatever is making it is actually on rods.

Revealing mistake: After Inspector Gadget and Brenda jump from Dr. Claw's helicopter at the end of the movie, they land on the ground thanks to Gadget's trusty parasol. Meanwhile, Claw is up in the helicopter trying to keep it from spinning out of control. A few minutes later, we see him also land on the ground with a parachute. What exactly happened to the helicopter? We never get to see it crash or anything. It simply vanishes, never to be seen or mentioned again.

Inspector Gadget: I don't get it. Why would you do this?
Dr. Claw: I'll tell you why. To make techno-warriors that never get tired, never get hungry, and never say "no." Every army in the world would be made up of my creations. Imagine the confusion, Gadget, huh? Imagine the perks. COMPRENDÉ?
Inspector Gadget: Yeah, I comprendé.
Dr. Claw: No-no-no-no-no-no-no-no. I comprendo, yo comprendo. Conjugate the word, for pity's sake.

More quotes from Inspector Gadget

Trivia: I wouldn't want to stay at the hospital that Gadget was staying at. When Penny runs into the room with the man in the body cast, someone on the intercom is saying 'Paging Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard. Paging Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard.' The Three Stooges were Curly Howard, Larry Fine and Moe Howard.

Question: When Inspector Gadget is lying on the table with the Claw watching over him, Gadget says that Claw will never get away with this. Then Claw says, "I think someone's been watching too many Saturday morning cartoons", and then everyone looks up at the camera confused/surprised. Can any one explain what the joke is here?

Answer: The joke is that he is referring to the "Inspector Gadget" cartoon, in which the Claw never got away with any of his schemes.
