Inspector Gadget

Trivia: During the end credits, the voice of Brain is Don Adams, the original animated Inspector Gadget, who also performed as the inept Maxwell Smart in the old television series Get Smart.


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.


Trivia: In the scene where Gadgetmobile first meets Inspector Gadget, he says something about him making moves on Dr. Bradford. Inspector Gadget says his only interest in her is professional. He says the same thing about the female Inspector in Inspector Gadget 2.


Trivia: When evil Gadget is doing the shadow, it's actually a mimic of the Lost World, most easily noted by the Japanese salesman being translated I left Tokyo to get away from this. However, in The Lost World it was not translated, and filmmakers thought a line that good should be recognized.


Trivia: In the beginning of the credits, you see Claw's evil henchman in a Minion Recovery group. Many of the other people in his group are former James Bond enemies.

Trivia: When Gadget starts to thumb through the Gadget manual, he stops on the Helicopter Hat. If you look closely, the picture is of the original animated Gadget in Helicopter mode.

Continuity mistake: When Inspector Gadget was in the city dump, you can clearly see all his gadgets inside his body. But when he recovers and rises, he is fully clothed - he could not possibly put on his suit that fast.

More quotes from Inspector Gadget

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.
