* 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.

* 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 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 version of The Winter Olympics pilot will be quite a task as only a clip of it is available on YouTube.

* 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 re-derailed him.

** The show itself nearly didn't happen- [=DiC=] and TMS were planning another series based on ''Anime/LupinIII'' called ''Lupin VIII'' (centered around one of Lupin's descendants), but the [[ScrewedByTheLawyers Leblanc estate killed the show while it was in production]]. Since both firms had invested a ton of money in the project that wasn't gonna happen, they needed to recoup the costs quickly- and ''Inspector Gadget'' was born.



** 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 that version was halted when Capital Cities/ABC, who owned DiC at the time, was bought by Disney.

* 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 water is possibly from a deleted scene from this episode.
