Toys - Inspector Gadget Blitzway DX version : a must have

  • 4.06.2020

    Inspector Gadget is a science fiction comedy animated series co-created by Bruno Bianchi, Andy Heyward, and DIC's founder Jean Chalopin, and was originally syndicated by DIC Audiovisuel and Lexington Broadcast Services Company. The series stars the voice of Don Adams as the titular character, and first premiered on September 12, 1983. It is the first cartoon show to be syndicated by DIC, who specifically created the series to help expand into the North American market, and the first animated series to be presented in stereo sound. The program originally ran from 1983 to 1986, broadcasting 86 episodes over two seasons, and remained in syndication into the late 1990s. The show revolves around the adventures of a clumsy, dim-witted detective named Inspector Gadget – a cyborg human with various bionic gadgets built into his body - who is sent on missions to thwart plans by his nemesis Dr. Claw, the leader of an evil organization known as "M.A.D.", unknowingly being assisted by his niece Penny and their dog Brain. The TV series proved to be a success for DIC, not only encouraging the company to produce additional programs such as Heathcliff, but also helped launch the Inspector Gadget franchise, including additional animated series and two live action films, as well as a sequel in 2015. As of today, the rights to the series are owned by WildBrain through its in-name-only unit, Cookie Jar Entertainment.

    Thousands of high-tech gadgets protruding from his outstretched fingertips and extending arms and legs. Inspector Gadget who has a body full of amazingly interesting tools but always solves every case whimsically. Brain, the incredibly intelligent puppy who helps him solve the case, and Penny, his adorable niece. Along with the hilarious Chief Quimby who always pops out of unexpected places and delivers secret orders.

    This wonderful action figure which recreates Gadget and his amazing special abilities from the famous animation brings back the heroes of your childhood who linger in your memory. Inspector Gadget’s special abilities are expertly recreated with several interchangeable parts. A number of Penny and Brain’s parts can be replaced to recreate memorable scenes from the animation.

    Synopsis Inspector Gadget :
    Inspector Gadget, the titular character of the series, is a world-famous cyborg police inspector who works for a secret police organization that combats crime across the globe, with each of his missions focused on thwarting the criminal schemes of M.A.D. (which stands for "Mean And Dirty") - a criminal organization led by the nefarious Dr. Claw, and conducted by his agents. Missions that he undertakes often occur in a foreign locale, or within the fictional city of Metro City. Despite the fact that Inspector Gadget is equipped with numerous gadgets to help him, including a personal vehicle that can morph between a family minivan to a compact police car, he is ultimately incompetent and clueless on each mission, often uses a gadget that he did not call for, and is sometimes prone to causing trouble inadvertently for those around him - an example of this is a running gag, inspired by the "self-destruct" message, in which Inspector Gadget is given briefing messages from his boss Chief Quimby, who primarily hands them to him while in disguise, only to have them unintentionally returned to him before they detonate…
