What is "Gadget Meets the Clan" About?

Gadget Meets the Clan is the 84th episode of the cartoon series Inspector Gadget and in this episode, Inspector Gadget attempts to try and befriend the G.G.G. (The Great, Great Godfather) not knowing that this man is a mafia boss who is experienced in organized crime.

Inspector Gadget Is Congratulated for Bringing Peace to the Law Enforcement Convention

By this point in the series, all of Dr. Claw’s M.A.D. agents have been arrested with the exceptions of Dr. Spectrum and Professor Doomkauf. While Inspector Gadget is present at a law enforcement convention and luncheon honoring his many years of service to the Metro City Police Department, two agents of Dr. Claw attempt to stall the convention and they rob the people of their food and clothes. It happens so fast that the people in the room do not know how it happened. Inspector Gadget immediately leaves the room, jumping through the roof and he catches up with those agents who then head back to the conference room, admitting their guilt.

Inspector Gadget Does Not Realize That the G.G.G. is a Gang of Criminals That Is After Him

This mafia boss is brought out of retirement with his five sons because Dr. Claw is not able to find experienced, talented criminals who can carry out his bidding. Dr. Claw’s “teacher” the famous Less Reknowned tells him that the G.G.G. prefers that people do not know that he is alive. Perhaps this mafia boss wanted to keep a secret identity. Nevertheless, Dr. Claw and the G.G.G. along with his five sons try to go after Inspector Gadget to try and get rid of him. Inspector Gadget is informed by his boss Chief Quimby that the G.G.G. and his five sons are after him. Inspector Gadget immediately dismisses the threat and thinks that the G.G.G. is an out of touch has-been. If it was not for Inspector Gadget’s loyal dog Brain, Gadget would have drowned in the ocean or he would have been targeted at an Italian restaurant. Earlier in the episode, the G.G.G. clan attaches an anchor to Inspector Gadget’s foot and they toss him overboard while he is on a boat. It should have been somewhat of a clue for the Inspector that these people were trying to eliminate him.

What is Interesting About the Episode "Gadget Meets the Clan?"

There is one similarity in this episode in comparison to two earlier episodes in the series Volcano Island and Don’t Hold Your Breath. This similarity is that Inspector Gadget is being chased by a shark that would have eaten him up had Brain not noticed this and helped him out.

Special Comment About the Episode "Gadget Meets the Clan"

One special comment that must be made in regards to the episode is that of this mafia’s boss’ five sons, his youngest son Eugene has the distinction of not listening attentively when his father speaks and he is busy doing other activities which does not please his father at all.

“Well, it will take more than an out of touch has-been to worry Inspector Gadget.”

Final Thoughts About the Episode "Gadget Meets the Clan"

Gadget Meets the Clan is an interesting attempt by the creators of Inspector Gadget to have different characters as foes instead of relying on the same agent types that viewers were used to seeing.
