Inspector Gadget Works With Solar Panels
Gadget himself is working on installing a solar panel system up on the roof of his house. He has one more solar panel to install but he is not able to do so because his gadgets malfunction and he slips off of the roof and falls all the way down into the outdoor tub where Penny and Brain are playing in. Fortunately, Gadget does not get injured and he is able to travel to England!
Unhenged the Episode is Set in the Area of England Known as Stonehenge
On his way to the place called Stonehenge, Inspector Gadget meets a Scottish agent named Pete but Gadget does not know that Pete is an agent working for Dr. Claw. Pete tries to trap Gadget in the mud and then manages to steal his Gadget mobile. How does Gadget get to town without the use of his car? Fortunately, his loyal dog Brain who traveled with him to England was there with a bicycle which Gadget uses to get to the main town area. The agents of Dr. Claw are after a famous solar scientist named Dr. Flashpan whom they want to use in order to help build a massive heat canon for their plot. I’ll let viewers read about what that plot is. These agents are dressed up as druids and they then kidnap Dr. Flashpan after he leaves the tavern. Penny is at Stonehenge investigating when she gets captured and tied up. She contacts Brain who manages to help free her by using a very creative strategy. He sees shaving cream that is inside of a tent. He uses this shaving cream to disguise himself as a “mad dog” and he is then able to scare away Pete and his agents. However, even after Penny and Brain try to escape, they are still spotted by Pete and the druids who realize that they have been tricked.
Analysis and Final Thoughts About the Episode Unhenged
Meanwhile, the scientists that have been kidnapped are tricked into thinking that they are working on a secret government project. Inspector Gadget is tied up once he reaches the area where Pete and the other agents are working. Dr. Claw’s plan is to put an end to the Tower of London using the heat ray. Penny realizes this and she quickly overrides Dr. Claw’s controls bringing the entire weapon crashing to the ground. And as usual, Gadget thinks that Brain is an agent of Dr. Claw and he is chasing him around. The Chief congratulates his top agent for restoring world peace and security. Although “Unhenged” is an interesting episode, it is still not as good as The Infiltration. The reason: it is because the Infiltration is slightly more exciting and there is the character of Presto-Change-O who has the special power of transforming himself into any person.
