Why Gadget in Minimadness is the Worst Episode of the Second Season of Inspector Gadget

Even if it has been mentioned that the episode Volcano Island was the worst episode in the first season of the cartoon Inspector Gadget, “Gadget in Minimadness” is definitely the worst episode in the second season of this animated series. If the previous episode called Gadget’s Gadgets was entertaining, this next one has action in it but the idea of having gremlin style creatures in a cartoon episode is a bit cheesy and detracts from the overall quality of the episode.

Inspector Gadget Does Not Realize How Dangerous This Next Mission is

In this episode, Inspector Gadget gets a phone call from Chief Quimby as he is getting his car washed in a car wash. Chief Quimby is actually hiding in the place that has the revolving devices that can wash the car. How does the Chief not even get injured? Nevertheless, the assignment says that there is an attempt on the Inspector’s life. Chief Quimby offers to take his best agent down to police headquarters until things get settled down. But Inspector Gadget tells him that he will do better than that by hiding in the Gadget family home. In his guess and logic, Inspector Gadget thinks that he will be safe if he locks himself up in the house. But even Chief Quimby knows the dangers of having five gremlins like creatures pursuing his best agent will be very dangerous for Inspector Gadget. I myself was never a big fan of horror themed cartoons or movies as a child because they would scare me to death.

The First Appearance of the Character Professor Doomkauf

The episode also features the debut of the character Professor Doomkauf, an evil scientist that does the bidding for Dr. Claw. In this episode, viewers are introduced to the Lingunis, a parody of the creatures in the 1984 movie Gremlins.

Who Saves the Day Again? Inspector Gadget's Loyal Dog Brain

These Linguinis are five little creatures that try to get Inspector Gadget but thanks to his very smart and loyal pet dog Brain, the Linguinis cannot get to Gadget. The only thing that they are able to do is to bite his finger which got caught in the door of his Gadget Mobile due to carelessness while closing the garage door of the Gadget family home. The Linguinis are able to wreck the kitchen of the house and throw food all over the place but every attempt by the Linguinis to get close to Inspector Gadget fails every time because Brain is able to use the house remote control to keep these little thugs at bay. Even near the end of the episode when the Linguinis corner Brain, he still finds a way to keep them out of harm’s way. One common theme throughout the series is that Dr. Claw does not really realize what saves Inspector Gadget from his demise.

Any Positives in the Episode Gadget In Minimadness?

Are there any positives to the episode Gadget in Minimadness? Well, the amount of action in the episode is certainly not lacking but the idea of having a parody of the movie Gremlins makes this episode a little less than desirable.
