Inspector Gadget (Series) (1983-1986)

Inspector Gadget
Bumbling Inspector Gadget battles the forces of M.A.D. with the aid of the various gadgets he has on his person: pop-up rollerskates, extensible arms, a helicopter-hat, etc. Despite the arsenal at his disposal (which is just as likely to misfire as work properly), Gadget never seems to be able to catch Dr. Claw, the mastermind behind M.A.D. Quite often, in fact, any success that Gadget might have is often caused by his niece Penny and her dog, who Gadget consistently fails to recognize as working incognito on the case.

My son loves watching Inspector Gadget every morning before he goes to school. We get all the episodes on Net Flix.
It's great to see the next generation watching the show.
I know this was more than a little like an animated "Get Smart", but this was still among my favourite shows as a kid, and still holds fond memories for me. I cannot think of any little girl, me included, who grew up in the 80s or early 90s who did not wish they were or tried to be like Penny. Too bad the live-action movies were so terrible. The series though still holds up as a classic.
