Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's little to worry about in this classic cartoon about a dimwitted bionic detective. Although the plot follows an ongoing tug-of-war between protagonist Gadget and the evil Dr. Claw, nothing about the show is likely to scare most kids. What mishaps do occur are comical in nature, and there's very little sense of danger of any sort. The show also promotes positive messages about safety and responsibility, which the characters relate to the story at its end.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


Cartoon-style explosions, crashes, and long falls are more humorous than scary, as is the frequent peril (speeding toward a waterfall or hurtling down a mountain, for instance) in which the characters find themselves.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Each episode ends with Inspector Gadget and Penny highlighting a lesson about personal safety that relates to the story's content. Although the show casts the Inspector as the hero, the real brains behind the operation is Penny, whose intelligence is the team's main weapon against Dr. Claw. Good and evil are clearly defined.
