Go go Gadget Backstory!


Remember the cartoon Inspector gadget? The one with the secret agent that had a bunch of gizmos replacing his body parts. It was a super fucked up show if you take a moment to think on it. That guy was put through something horrible and had to get some sort of knock off experimental body modification surgery and aside from the physical trauma, he obviously suffered some mental upset as well, The guy wasnt alright in the head (probably because he had a helicopter where his brain is supposed to be) Was he the victim of some horrible work-related accident? Seems likely considering how his boss was a bit heavy handed with his distribution of the self destructing mission assignments. That would explain an injury needing to be “repaired” through some kind of government funding a la "The Six Million Dollar Man" to create a super-secret agent cyborg abomination. As clumsy as he is, I would have to assume the surgery was fairly successful to put him back in active duty if he was caught in a "accidental" explosion
I wonder if Dr. Claw was the victim of the same accident in which he had a less successful procedure. Perhaps a $5400.00-man type of situation? Maybe they were partners and Claw went dark after the accident. Maybe Penny’s mom was involved, like she was Claws true love and he lost her and his body at the same time and he resents the agency and gadget for raising his ! Maybe Penny’s mom had to have her brain transferred into a dog’s body; his name is brain after all. Whatever it is I’m almost positive that the chief is responsible for it all due to his dangerous, foolish penchant for self-destructing top secret<b> messages... </font></b>I could, of course, be overthinking the entire thing but the origins of gadget, the gadget family the agency that employs him and their enemies is woefully underexplained. In fact, Claw might not even exist. Perhaps hes just an alternate personality manifested by gadget as a conflicted part of his fractured psyche. Whatever the case , Penny seemed as if she also had a role within the agency since she was obviously in a support position for her uncle as a partner/ caretaker. The latitude she was given to involve herself and in missions is evidence of that, as well as the ultra advaced technology she had access to. I mean, did she not have an ipad? That strikes me as quite a responsibility for a 10 year old and meakes me question if gadget was working for the good guys. The use of a spy doesnt seem very ethical to me. hmmm this thought thread is starting to get a little dark. Taking a deep dive into the saturday mornings of my childhood will potentially be a bit disturbing. Well, there goes my weekend...
