Netflix is Resurrecting Inspector Gadget

By Adam Clark Estes on at

Du nuh nuh nuh nuh, Inspector Gadget is coming to Netflix.

The absolutely amazing '80s gadget adventure show is being resurrected in CGI form, along with the amazing '80s spy show Danger Mouse, which will see Stephen Fry voicing Colonel K. In the US, this is happening very soon, with Inspector Gadget premiering on March 27. According the USAToday it will come to the UK Netflix "at a later date".

Obviously, we're all concerned that 21st-century producers could ruin a 20th-century classic, but the outlook sounds pretty good for now. Variety reports the plot of the new Inspector Gadget show will revolve around the dreaded Dr. Claw reactivating M.A.D., his global crime syndicate, and Inspector Gadget is tasked with stopping him.

It remains unclear if Inspector Gadget will bring back the moustache he rocked in the original pilot. The Netflix better not change that theme song, though. [Variety]
