An update of the classic 1980s kids' cartoon finds bumbling bionic Inspector Gadget back on the beat, lured out of retirement to save the day. He's on the trail of the evil Dr. Claw, who has reactivated his global crime syndicate MAD. As always, the gullible gumshoe at first manages to make things worse, leaving a path of destruction in his investigative wake. Ably assisting Gadget is his confident niece, Penny, and her trusty dog, Brain, a master of disguise. Now an agent in training, Penny uses her intelligence, martial arts and high-tech gear to keep her clumsy uncle safe from harm. But it won't be easy -- Penny must ward off the advances of the handsome Talon, Dr. Claw's nephew.
