Introduction to "Gadget and the Red Rose"

Gadget and the Red Rose in the cartoon series Inspector Gadget is more than just its 86th episode but unfortunately, it turned out to be the very last one of the series. For such a great cartoon and the brilliant voice acting of Don Adams, Cree Summer, and Frank Welker to reach an abrupt end like this, that leaves fans of the show wondering what would have happened had the show continued for a while longer.


Interesting Fact About This Episode

The episode was first aired on February 1, 1986 and it was episode #86 of the cartoon Inspector Gadget.

A Brief Synopsis of Gadget and the Red Rose

In this episode, the Red Rose is not literally a red rose but it is a device similar to a bazooka that when used it spews out the scent of rotten potatoes which then repels foes. In this episode, the evil scientist/cyborg Dr. Claw makes a phone call to Less Reknowned, the owner of a retirement home who is also responsible for training the world’s finest criminals. Dr. Claw wants Less to talk to the man Spuds Malone and convince him to come out of retirement in order to take care of Gadget. Inspector Gadget has a tool of his own called “The Gadzooka.” This is similar to a bazooka except that it discharges acid sour cream. In this final episode is also the last appearance of the character known as Corporal Capeman.

What Happens in Gadget and the Red Rose?

Spuds Malone begins the search for Red Rose. Meanwhile, viewers will find out that Spuds Malone also happens to be the head chef of the Old Bad Guys & Gals retirement home. He loves to cook anything that has potatoes in it so hence, that’s why he created Red Rose. He reaches his old neighborhood and finds out that it has been converted into a condominium. Meanwhile, Inspector Gadget and Capeman continue to focus their attention on the wrong adversary. When Dr. Claw finds out that Inspector Gadget is right behind Spuds and his men, he informs them that they must get rid of him. A wild chase ensues in the underground sewers as Spuds Malone and his men destroy the water valve to try and wash away Gadget and Capeman. The rest of the episode involves Gadget and Capeman trying to catch up to Spuds Malone as they sit in a taxi to try and track him down. Meanwhile, Spuds and his men drive through the gate of the retirement home, destroying it in the process. Penny finds Red Rose, makes adjustments, and eventually overrides the controls, destroying the weapon that gives off the smell of an awful gas.


Final Thoughts About the Last Episode of the Original Inspector Gadget

Overall, Gadget and the Red Rose is somewhat exciting for the last episode of the series Inspector Gadget. No other remake of the original series such as Gadget and the Gadgetinis has even been as close to being as good as the original Inspector Gadget!
