However, Gadget thinks that he is going to a circus! Once again, the hero shows his lack of understanding about what is really going on. In this episode once again, the intellect and clever moves by Gadget’s niece Penny is shown as she goes into a shop to buy imitation pearls so that Dr. Claw’s plan will be foiled. Meanwhile, Gadget is walking around Hong Kong as agents of Mr. Chow attempt to get rid of him. Gadget thinks that he sees firecrackers! Meanwhile, Penny is investigating the harbor to try and find out where the floating nest is that Dr. Claw plans to meet up with Mr. Chow. A man sneaks up behind Penny and takes her away. Penny is very scared, thinking that she will be captured. Not this time! The grandson of Inspector Gadget’s Hong Kong contact tried to protect her. When Gadget finally arrives on the boat that has the floating nest, Dr. Claw and Mr. Chow get distracted, making it easier for Penny to switch the real pearls with the imitation pearls. Mr. Chow’s agents are knocked down by Gadget’s hands and his skates as Gadget moves around erratically. Mr. Chow finds the fake pearls in the bag and the partnership is dissolved. The Chief congratulates and asks him how he is able to foil Dr. Claw’s plot every single time. Gadget just laughs and remarks that he doesn’t know how he does this as well. Actually, it was Penny and Brain that helped him solve this case but he got the credit.
