Where Does the Episode "Gone Went the Wind" Take Place?

Inspector Gadget, the clueless and clumsy bionic police detective gets his third experience with seeing snow as he is assigned by his boss Chief Quimby in the episode called Gone Went the Wind to find out what is going on at the North Pole. The first time in this series that viewers see snow is in the very first episode of Inspector Gadget.

A Little More About the Significance of the 39th Episode

As an interesting side note, this episode's title is very similar to the famous movie called Gone With the Wind. In this episode however, we do actually see the wind blowing so there is some logic to the episode's title.

Where is Chief Quimby Hiding in This Episode?

Chief Quimby in this episode is actually hiding in the freezer section where the frozen chickens are. How does he not freeze to death? Some of us might find it rather funny that the Chief would be hiding in a supermarket freezer.

Inspector Gadget Meets With Another Police Chief In This Episode

In any case, Inspector Gadget must meet up with another Chief at the North Pole to investigate what is happening. Note: those of you that love snow and the winter season will find this episode very enjoyable. In this episode, a scientist by the name of Dr. Focus has created a very powerful weapon known as the Sneezooka which is so powerful that it has the power to destroy entire towns with the force of 3 billion sneezes. Inspector Gadget is so lucky that his niece Penny and his pet dog Brain follow him up to the North Pole otherwise he would not have been able to solve the case. In addition, the Inspector becomes snow blind in this episode and he has no idea what direction he is walking in.

What Other Character Besides Dr. Focus is After the Inspector?

An agent by the name of MAD Trapper is assigned to try and eliminate Gadget. This agent tries to trap the Inspector in several ways, the first of which involves painting a red X in the wrong location so that the Inspector does not find the right location. MAD Trapper pulls the rope and tries to activate the snow boulder but it does not work as he had planned at first. Even if it had worked, a mound of snow would not have derailed the Inspector’s plans.

What Happens to Inspector Gadget When He Gets Blinded by the Snow?

Inspector Gadget becomes so blinded by the snow once he travels far enough into North Pole territory that a bear that lives in a cave is thought to be Santa Claus by the Inspector! In this instance, we cannot blame the hero because he has been blinded by the snow and that’s why he is seeing very different images.

"How about a little traveling music?"

"I just don't understand this new music."

— Inspector Gadget

How Does Penny Solve the Case?

However, as usual, the person that really solves this case is Penny. She rents a snowmobile and arrives at the laboratory on the North Pole where Dr. Focus is doing his work. Penny gets captured and loses her parka temporarily but she is able to find the main control room and she is able to override the controls of Dr. Focus so that he cannot destroy Metro City. The device backfires, causing the force of the sneezes to drive Dr. Claw all the way down to the bottom of the lake. Gadget would have been too blinded by the snow to even find where Dr. Focus was so we are glad that Penny was able to save the day once again.

Brief Final Thoughts About the Episode "Gone Went the Wind"

The end of the episode is a safety section where it is discussed what people should do when they catch a cold. Overall, Gone Went the Wind is one of the first season’s best episodes in a season and series that has so many good episodes.
