* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: the series got a few single episode VHS releases that are now out of print. It also got a few episodes released on 2 compilation [=DVDs=] which are also out of print. The first season WAS released in 2006 by Creator/ShoutFactory but it's, you guessed it: out of print, and quite pricy, most sets go for about $50 apiece. There was also a DVD from Creator/CookieJarEntertainment that has the first 10 episodes from season 2 but again like everything else, it too is out of print. The series was available on Netflix for a while but it was taken off. The first 65 episodes are available as the first 3 seasons on iTunes though. And the series is beyond easy to find on YouTube. Though finding the original Jesse White version of The Winter Olympics pilot will be quite a task as it's currently considered lost.

* TalkingToHimself: Frank Welker plays Dr. Claw, MAD Cat, and Brain. (This is why Dr. Claw sounds just like Soundwave from ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers''; in fact, in about four [[TransformersGeneration1 G1]] episodes and ''[[{{Film/Transformers}} Revenge of the Fallen]]'', the vocoder effect fails, and he really sounds like Dr. Claw.)

* ActorAllusion: Seeing as Gadget is essentially [[Series/GetSmart Maxwell Smart]] [-[[{{Expy}} AS A CYBORG]]-], it makes sense that he'd be voiced by Maxwell himself, Don Adams.

!!The film:



* NoStuntDouble: Elaine Hendrix, who played G2 in the sequel, performed all her own stunts.



* RepurposedPopSong: Youngstown's "I'll Be Your Everything," which existed before the film but still used a sample of the theme song for it's hook. A newer version was recorded for the movie, with more uses of the sample and lyrics alluding to the plot, as well as [[{{Bowdlerize}} some of the more suggestive lines removed]].
* StarDerailingRole: This was one of several film choices in the late 1990s that led to a slump in Matthew Broderick's career as a leading man. He saved a little face a couple years later on Broadway with ''Theatre/TheProducers'', but the musical's 2005 film adaptation re-derailed him.

** The project originated in 1993 at Creator/{{Universal}}, with [[Film/{{Stripes}} Ivan]] [[Film/Ghostbusters1984 Reitman]] producing and [[ComicBook/RedHulk Jeph Loeb]] and Matt Weisman as the writers. (One wonders how ''that'' version would've turned out.) But this was halted when Capital Cities/Creator/{{ABC}}, who owned DiC at the time, was bought by Disney.

* ExecutiveMeddling: In the pilot episode, "Winter Olympics", Inspector Gadget had a mustache. DiC Entertainment had to remove the mustache for the rest of the series after MGM threatened to sue them for Gadget looking too much like [[Franchise/ThePinkPanther Inspector Clouseau]]. In later airings of the pilot, a scene was redubbed explaining that Gadget's mustache was fake (with Frank Welker voicing Gadget's line.)

* In the end credits, the scene of Chief Quimby in the garbage can and Gadget falling backwards past a railing are from the episode 1-7 "The Boat". The scene of the seagull picking at Gadget in the ffwater is possibly from a deleted scene from this episode.
