Inspector Gadget was one of my favorite cartoons back in the day.

I remember being SO stoked about getting this action figure. I think I've still got it somewhere. I think one of the hands shot off with the push of a button - which could mean that mine would mostly likely have a missing hand. Ha!

I also didn't have the toys but I watched the cartoon. I don't even bother watching the movies with Matthew Broderick and French Stewart.

I never had any of the toys but I watched the show religiously with my brother always eating mac&cheese. I thought Penny was hot.

Matthew, don't feel bad. I got the Inspector Gadget doll for my fifth birthday and lost his go-go gadget hand within minutes. We never found that thing. Has anyone seen how much that doll sells for on Ebay?!

I wanted them to make a toy out of Penny's amazing computer-book thing!

I still reference this when I can't reach for something. "Go go Gadget arm!"

Ahhh, memories yet again! I remember the theme song to the cartoon on Nickelodeon. I loved how the car would change from a van to a police car. I loved Dr. Claw's crazy voice and the fact that you only saw his claw-hand! Penny's weird book was pretty cool, too.

My parents, god bless 'em, traipsed all over the place trying to get this doll for me for Christmas, and "Santa" left a note saying they'd run out. We ended up finding one later that year, and it was TOTALLY WORTH IT.

Galoob Toys sold the Inspector Gadget figures, plus other goodie. In every cartoon, Gadget would either blow up his boss with a self-destruct message, or involve his dog, Brain, in some dangerous act. None other than Don Adams could've voiced Gadget. In 1984, DIC Entertainment also produced a new batch of Heathcliff cartoons, with a new element: The Cadillac Cats. These cats lived in a junkyard, the fictional town of West Finster, and their leader was Riff Raff, who had a gorgeous feline girlfriend named Cleo. Though Riff Raff and Heathcliff lived in the same town, they never interacted, except for those who belonged to Riff Raff's gang. Inspector Gadget references were seen in some Heathcliff cartoons, and vise-versa. The two cartoon shows usually aired, back to back, during after-school time.

Also found a bendable Penny figure while on the antique store tour. Also, the Milton Bradley board game from 1984, selling for $22. Don Adams was quite busy in 1984. while voicing Inspector Gadget, he also was in Toronto, taping episodes of a sitcom called "Check It Out," in which he played a supermarket manager, Howard Bannister. First aired in Canada on CBC, also aired in American syndication starting later in 1984. Two seasons were taped of that series.

I'm a writer who has 2 characters talking about Inspector Gadget lunchboxes. Does anyone know how many were sold in 1983 (or later) Thanks in advance

Extensive searching into the hard sales figures of Inspector Gadget lunchboxes came up empty. Even the usually dependable Wikipedia didn't provide answers. Aladdin Industries, maker of this product, is now owned by Pacific Marketing International. Gadget boxes were produced in China, 1983-84, shortly after Aladdin closed its Nashville plant. Two variants were made: Red with Gadget, Penny and Brain in underwater scene. The other, blue, with the three shown skiing. Aladdin goes back to 1908, Seattle. Company moved to Nashville around 1950, leaving in 1982. Trade magazines from the era may provide some sales figures, which usually were not made public.
