You might not know it unless you’re a parent of young kids (or a young kid yourself), but Netflix has a pretty healthy lineup of programming aimed at younger viewers. Most of the time, I wouldn’t expect people reading this site to care about that, but when one of those programs is a computer-animated reboot of beloved cartoon Inspector Gadget, it becomes worthy of greater interest.
I’m not going to be one of those guys who rails against unwanted remakes of beloved properties of my youth, so instead I’m going to focus on the positive. Whoever they got to voice Inspector Gadget does a wicked Don Adams, and I’m happy that Penny and Brain both seem to be faithfully reproduced as well.
You can watch the trailer for the new Inspector Gadget Netflix cartoon below. And the entire series drops to go-go-gadget Netflix accounts on March 27th.
Here’s the trailer:
