Ever wonder what the hell happened to Inspector Gadget? Most of us aren’t cobbled together with bolts and gizmos that enable us to skate, fly, or extend still from our pants (well, some of us anyway). Welp, the cartoon writers never mentioned it. However, the info was found on a 1991 trading card, stating that the OG I.G. was “an ordinary police inspector” until he slipped on a banana peel, fell down some steps, and awoke from an operation as Inspector Gadget. Makes total sense — but what about Dr. Claw?
Penny’s computer book was only an imaginary device at that time. First-time viewers of Inspector Gadget today may not realize how ahead of it’s time her computer book was.
