Two Themes in the Episode The Coo Coo Clock Caper are Mountain Climbing & Gold

Nonetheless, the three members of the Gadget family are slowly walking in the mountains when Inspector Gadget decides that he will attempt to walk up all the way to the mountain’s summit. Penny is obviously concerned about her uncle and he attempts to walk up the steep mountain but he instead starts to slip and slide creating a sort of mini avalanche. Penny and Brain attempt to help him by using a rope so that he will not fall over. Gadget ends up going over the far side of the mountain. Penny and Brain realize this and they go to seek help. Meanwhile, Inspector Gadget activates his Gadget coat and begins to fly slowly through the air. In an attempt to lighten his load, he ends up poking a hole in his coat and begins flying in the air at a fast pace. He is rescued by Chief Quimby who notifies him that his mission is to investigate the Swiss gold reserves.

What is the Mission of Inspector Gadget?

However, Gadget arrives at the Swiss gold reserves too late as the mayor of the city opens the vault and realizes that every ounce of gold has been stolen. Now the Inspector must find the whereabouts of the gold before Dr. Claw can use it for his plans to dominate the world with access to the entire Swiss gold reserves. Actually the Inspector’s main job is to protect and safeguard the gold. However, the agents of Dr. Claw beat the Inspector to the job before he could safeguard the gold. But thanks to Penny who does some very top notch investigating before getting captured, Inspector Gadget is able to stumble upon the gold.
