The Inspector Gadget wiki last edited by fesak on 04/14/13 10:58AM View full history

Origin

According to the movie, John was a security guard who was almost killed trying to stop

Doctor Claw

from stealing some valuable equipment for the "Gadget Program". However, he was rebuilt using the same equipment he had tried to protect and thus became the detective known as "Inspector Gadget".

Creation

Inspector Gadget was created for the 1983 cartoon by the same name. He was voiced by Don Adams (who also played

Maxwell Smart

). After continuing to be popular, he was adapted into a Live-action feature length Disney Movie played by Matthew Broderick which tried to imitate the cartoon's style, though many fans believed it was darker than their favorite cartoon. Later, there was a direct to video sequel. There have been rumors of a third movie, but no evidence to support these claims.

He made his first Comic book appearance in Look-in where his cartoon ran in comic strip form.
