The titular detective made his [[Film/InspectorGadget big-screen debut]] in 1999, played by Creator/MatthewBroderick; a direct-to-video sequel starring [[Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun French Stewart]] followed in 2003. The first film was DarkerAndEdgier and [[InNaneOnly barely resembled the series]]; the second, while more faithful, was even more derided than the first. There was also a spin-off series called GadgetBoyAndHeather which shares little in common with Inspector Gadget but bionic implants, and also a more faithful spin-off called ''GadgetAndTheGadgetinis''.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseAnimalCare: The villain in "Birds of a Feather" uses a flock of assorted birds to commit crimes and is about to feed birdseed to them before being ordered by Dr. Claw to get rid of Gadget. Birdseed would be unsuitable for these species; one is a hummingbird which feeds on flower nectar and tree sap. The other birds resemble raptors (one is identified as a condor by Penny), most likely eating meat.

**** In the unaired English pilot episode Gadget calls Brain "Finot" once at the beginning, but calls him Brain thereafter. The obvious explanation is that that was accidentally held over from some earlier draft of the script, so it's possible the French names have provenance and thus it would be the ''English'' version that has the DubNameChange.
