View full history
According to the movie, John was a security guard who was almost killed trying to stop
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".
Inspector Gadget was created for the 1983 cartoon by the same name. He was voiced by Don Adams (who also played
). 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.
