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.
