Played straight in the sequel, when Gadget, G2, and Penny merely run him out of town. Both instances incorporate a variation of Claw's catchphrase, "I'll get you next time, Gadget! NEXT TIME!"

Added DiffLines:

* TheReveal: Claw's face is fully seen by the audience all throughout the movie, as opposed to it being constantly obscured in the cartoon. In his first scene, it is ''barely'' concealed by the shadows before he emerges with it fully uncovered.

* ComedicUnderwearExposure: From Gadget during his fight with Robo-Gadget. Thankfully, he's wearing boxers.
** Also from Scolex, who loses his briefs to Brain while escaping with Brenda.



* TheDitz: Inspector Gadget, but slightly less so than in the cartoon. The Mayor of Riverton also has shades of this.



* EvilPlan: The first one is about acquring Gadget Technology so he can sell it on the black market and acquring his crush. The second is revenge.

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).
