A Look at the Real Bermuda Triangle


The Significance Behind the 29th Episode "The Bermuda Triangle"

Episode 29 of the famous cartoon Inspector Gadget called The Bermuda Trianglehas some historical and geographical significance other than being just a cartoon episode. The Bermuda Triangle actually is a section of the North Atlantic Ocean in North America in which 50 airplanes and at least 20 ships are said to have mysteriously vanished. The episode’s title can also be used interchangeably so it is sometimes called Bermuda Triangle.

How Does the Cartoon Episode Compare to Real Life?

In the cartoon episode, the plot is similar because the head of the organization MAD who is Dr. Claw uses a machine to swallow up oil tankers and make them look like they have vanished.

"Bermuda Triangle" Full Episode

What is the Mission for Inspector Gadget?

Inspector Gadget has been assigned by Chief Quimby to investigate the reasons for those boats disappearing. The Chief apologizes for interrupting Inspector Gadget on the weekend but Gadget is prepared to be on duty at a moment's notice. Penny says that The Bermuda Triangle is something that has left scientists baffled for years but the inspector vows to solve the case in no time.

This Episode is Mainly About What Happens to Inspector Gadget

When Inspector Gadget becomes stranded out at sea, he is rescued by one of Dr. Claw’s agents and once Dr. Claw finds out who has been rescued, needless to say, he becomes very angry. When the Inspector ends up in the place where all the oil tankers have been captured, he thinks that he has been abducted by aliens and taken to another planet. Dr. Claw used sleeping gas to subdue the people on the oil tankers so that he could capture them.

Inspector Gadget Gets Captured

Inspector Gadget is actually pushed into an oil tank and he is able to basically get his way out of it by using his tools. Dr. Claw plans to use to use the oil from the oil tankers to make what he calls a “handsome price on the black market.” Things in this episode take an interesting turn as it is Inspector Gadget this time that gets captured instead of his niece Penny. He gets thrown into a shark pit and he thinks that these agents expect him to be a fish trainer. However, Inspector Gadget has been thrown into a shark pit because Dr. Claw wants him to be eliminated. Inspector Gadget thinks that the sharks are such playful creatures and then tries to subdue them using his lasso. Instead, he is dragged under the water by the sharks but he still manages to survive the ordeal.

Funny Part of the Episode and How the Case Gets Solved

At the end of the episode comes one of the funniest parts. While looking for his dog Brain whom he thinks is an alien, he opens up the main water valve. The water comes flowing out of the valve, bringing the stolen boats up to the sea where the Chief can spot them. So there you have it, a look at a cartoon episode that is applicable to real life even many years later. But by opening up that water valve, the water starts pouring out and brings the ships up to the surface of the ocean, thus solving the case of the missing boats. Here is a memorable quote from that part:

"No Gadget, no!"

Dr. Claw utters this when he realizes Gadget is on the way to ruining his entire plan.
