One of the most memorable shows from my childhood was Inspector Gadget, owing to the fact that it was a funny, colorful show that had a little bit of action and intrigue (I used to wonder what Dr. Claw really looked like), and also because it was shown during Saturday mornings, which is my favorite part of the week (it meant that there’s no school today AND tomorrow. Sunday morning sucked because I dreaded going back to school).
Anyway, it seems like Teletoon is planning to throw me a good one due to the announcement that they have commissioned a new CG version of Inspector Gadget from DHX Media.
Here’s Teletoon’s official synopsis of the series:
DHX Media • 26 x 11 minutes
Premiere Date TBC on TELETOON
MAD Agents, look out! Criminals, beware! Bystanders … take cover! Inspector Gadget is back to battle Dr. Claw with all-new gadgets – and all-new gadget-related chaos. But the lovable, bumbling, accidentally-destructive Inspector is not alone in the fight to take down MAD. His ever trusty police-dog, Brain, is still by his side and he’s getting extra crime-fighting help from his new partner, Inspector-in-training Penny. With MAD more powerful than ever and with the arrival of Dr. Claw’s evil-genius (and totally crush-worthy) nephew, Penny and Brain will need to use every ounce of their training to keep the world safe from Dr. Claw … and Gadget.
