Inspector Gadget


a little pic that basically ruined everything a certain cartoon meant to me. Does anyone remember:

Oh yes, don't lie, you know Inspector Gadget. Let's forget about the horrible Matthew Broderick movie about this trenchcoat clad cyborg who can't figure out shit without the help of his niece Penny and her faithful dog Brain. Together they go on wacky hunts to solve crimes which were committed by the dreadful Dr. Claw!

 

Now Dr. Claw ran a criminal organization called MAD, however, throughout the sindication of the show, they never really showed what Dr. Claw looked like(except in the movie, but we're not going to talk about that abomination). All it ever showed was a deep throat voice coming out from behind a chair with a metal arm slowly stroking a pussy. Yes, all forms of a crazy porn movie, but it wasn't as bad as it seemed.

 

That is until 1992, where DIC (yes, it sounds more wrong as we continue) where they released the official Inspector Gadget toy line. And just like any toy line, you can't release stuff like this without having the villain Dr. Claw.

Now, how would they have been able to do something like this without showing his face? It's impossible. And in an effort to hide his identity until you bought the figure, DIC did a brilliant thing by doing this:

Oh yes, they hide his face. But what does it say exactly? Well, the big flashy text says "Reveal the mysterious Dr. Claw! His villainous face has never been seen before!" That is until this action figure was released. Now...the time has come to ruin every childhood imagination I had of what Dr. Claw looked like. I'm not sure you will want to see it, cause once you do, it will ruin any idea you had of him before, I guarantee you. *sighs* here it is

Dr. Claw:

Well, that's him. That's the mastermind and deep voice behind all of Inspector Gadget's chaotic adventures. It's so....disappointing. At one point I want to laugh because it looks so ridiculous, and on the other hand I want to cry because....well,....it looks so ridiculous. It ruins everything I ever imagined him to be. Why couldn't he be a robot? Why couldn't he be severly deformed instead of looking like a cracked up retard? But no....now I can never watch Inspector Gadget the same again because of this. I'm severly crushed. It's...painful. Just....ow. So I'll try my best to remember him as I always had to. Sitting powerfully behind his chair with Mad Cat sitting on the arm chair being petted and displaying the emotions for Dr. Claw.
