"Arabian Nights" is the 31st episode of the first season of Inspector Gadget.
Gadget is sent to the wealthy Middle Eastern kingdom of Yetzanistan to safeguard a sacred sword - whoever possesses it shall become King. A young sultan is set to become the next sovereign ruler; however he is tricked by the duplictous M.A.D. agent Fast Abdul, which results in the sword being pilfered from the confines of the royal vault just two days prior to his coronation. Abdul touts himself as being the fastest thief in all of Yetzanistan, but is he really quick enough to evade the utter buffoonery of our bionic hero?
