Another Interesting Part of the Episode "The Great Wambini's Seance"
The Great Wambini and his assistant are following the Inspector on the freeway and they are trying to get rid of him. They use a smoke screen and the oil slick to try and dispose of him. While the oil slick gets Inspector Gadget off of the freeway, he ends up on the city streets, drives in the wrong direction and he almost gets hit by a big rig truck before his pet dog Brain reacts instantly as the four wheel drive is activated. The Gadget Mobile then maneuvers away from the truck as the Inspector is saved. However, when the Inspector arrives at the mansion, he sees a round table with several of the owners of these pets there as well and they beg to get their pets back. There is a kind of special effect that is used to bring the spirits of these missing pets so that the owners can be lured into giving money to get their pets back. The Inspector is lured into a trap door because of the wind that is activated using a special control tower. The two magicians try to get rid of the Inspector by activating a spiked wall that slowly comes down but due to help from Brain and just the right timing, the Inspector is saved from any harm. This second episode of the second season is decent but it is not one of the best ones of the season. How would the Inspector do in these cases without the help of Penny and Brain? Brain disguises himself as a woman and saves Inspector Gadget from a laser cannon and a knight in armor that is set to destroy him.
