Netflix Brings Back Inspector Gadget


Netflix has recently announced that they will be launching an updated version of the iconic 80s/90s cartoon Inspector Gadget. The new version will use modern CG animation techniques in order to bring a sleek, updated look to the classic franchise.

For the uninitiated, Inspector Gadget focuses on a famous cyborg policeman with a seemingly endless amount of gadgets that can be summoned through his various appendages and extremities, triggered by the phrase “Go-Go-Gadget.” Despite his access to various high tech gadgets, the protagonist is somewhat clueless and incompetent, but is helped by his skilled niece Penny and the intelligent dog Brain. The last time the franchise made a splash is with the live action film that features Matthew Broderick (which didn’t go over too well with critics and fans alike.)

Produced by DHX Media, the new Netflix series will take place years after the original series. The show still focuses on the original main characters, although some of them – particularly Penny – have already grown older. The new Inspector Gadget series is scheduled for a March premiere.
