It was successful enough for Disney to produce a direct-to-video sequel, ''Inspector Gadget 2'' (2003), though none of the original cast returned (except for D.L Hughley who reprised his role as the Gadgetmobile).

* CoveredInGunge: Used so much (toothpaste, gum, batter), you wonder if it's a private FetishFuel on the part of a producer/director.

* DullSurprise: "Dull" is stretching it a bit, but Brenda nonetheless reacts remarkably well at the appearance of her robotic lookalike, designed by the man who hired her. And this is all before she even finds out what he did to her father.

The movie opens with an origin story for the titular hero (Broderick). Originally a human security guard named John Brown, he dreams of one day being a respected police officer, though he is continually rejected due to his lack of experience. He also has designs on Brenda Bradford (Fisher), a scientist that works at the cybernetics lab he's employed for. After the lab creates a prototype for a computer chip that can control lifelike robotic limbs, Brown's life changes as CorruptCorporateExecutive Sanford Scolex (Everett) breaks into the lab, kills Brenda's father, and makes off with the prototype foot. When Brown pursues him, the resulting car chase ends with Scolex blowing up his car and leaving him with extensive tissue damage. In the aftermath, Scolex's right hand is crushed, leading to him getting a selection of cybernetic replacements. His favourite replacement [[RuleOfCool (because it looks cool)]] is a metallic crab-claw. He dubs himself "Claw." As for Brown, Brenda decides to make him the prototype for the "Gadget Program" and repairs his damaged body by converting him into a cyborg with numerous odd and zany functions. Now dubbed "Inspector Gadget," he realizes his dream of joining the police force - though his generally goofy and awkward nature and lack of control over his new hardware makes him something of a walking disaster area. Meanwhile, Scolex still has designs on the technology that created him, as he plans to use it to build an unstoppable robot army to take over the world...

* ChekhovsSkill: Gadget puts the training he received from the guru to good use in the film's climax.

* ChekhovsSkill: Gadget puts the training he received from the guru to good use in the film's climax. His skill with a pen-gun ''would'' have counted as this in an earlier draft (at least if the novelization is anything to go by), but the relevant scene was either cut or not filmed at all.
