Teletoon Orders New Inspector Gadget Series

Inspector-Gadget-post

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).

He may be on the clumsy side, but let’s not forget Inspector Gadget is one of law enforcement’s top agents! A cyborg detective whose bionic gadgets have helped keep Dr. Claw and the agents of M.A.D. at bay for years now. Originally animated by DIC Entertainment (now Cookie Jar Entertainment), the classic 1980s toon had all of the love and appeal of the 1960s series Get Smart, including the main voice actor Don Adams. Now, Viper Comics is bringing him back to continue fighting the good fight in a brand new comic book series. Penny and Brain are back as well… but so is MAD! Get ready to Go-Go-Gadget this summer!

Typically, as seen with specials like Wolverine and the X-Men, it’s the other way around – comics becoming cartoons. But now, two generations worth of toons are now headed into the media of comic books; Inspector Gadget and Johnny Test are making the full transition from animation to the printed page, as Viper Comics signs the two properties to comic book deals. Inspector Gadget, DIC Entertainment’s (now Cookie Jar Entertainment’s) classic 80s toon, features a cyborg detective, whose human body stores multiple bionic gadgets — somewhat like an early Generator Rex! Johnny Test, on the other (non-bionic) hand, follows the adventures of Johnny and his brilliant twin sisters Susan and Mary. Fans can expect a graphic novel collection of each to hit store shelves in early 2011, along side a field dominated by Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, and other Marvel and DC super heroes.
