This was my jam when I was a kid.

So I was startled to see that Netflix brought Inspector Gadget back in a CGI sequel -- I legitimately thought it was an April Fool's Day thing until I researched more, and apparently this was announced months ago and already aired in Europe.

I was even more surprised when Penny opened her mouth and a purple unicorn started talking.

I watched the pilot and don't think I'll be watching any more; weird art style/decisions are too distracting for me. But the guy they got to play Gadget sounds just like I remember. Ahh, nostalgia.

Edit: GUYS PENNY JUST SAID "If we HOOF it, we should be able to beat him" :rainbowlaugh:

Wow, this is a really elaborate April Fool's prank, RBDash! You put all that work into that 3D animation and even got permission from Netflix to use their logo and graphi—

Oh.

Oooooooooh.

That's... actually surprisingly close to Don Adams' voice quality... I'd watch it, just for that!

Wow, I used to watch the heck out of Inspector Gadget.

As for this version, I was able to get through the first episode, and I may watch one or two more to see if they improve the timing/animation at all (everything felt a little... off). And, as much as I love Tara's voice work, I have to wonder why they didn't go with Cree Summer for Penny's voice. That woulda hit me right in the nostalgia!

It's like every character is a robot that has been inexpertly taught to mimic human movement.
