Inspector Gadget's Biggest Caper Ever is a direct to video movie featuring Inspector Gadget. It was released 6 September 2005. It is the first Inspector Gadget project to be in CGI. This was supposed to be the first in a series of animated Gadget films (similar to the Scooby-Doo direct-to-video films), but due to poor reception from fans and bad sales, they scrapped production. Featuring Bernie Mac as the Gadgetmobile.
In the new special, the world’s greatest bionic detective is back and more bumbling than ever. With his niece, Penny, who’s now sixteen and even more devoted to Gadget than before, and Penny’s dog, Brain, who is still smarter than Gadget could ever hope to be, the Inspector protects Metro City from the heinous machinations of the evil Doctor Claw and his incompetent minions on one hand, and the lunacy of its deranged Mayor on the other. Metro City’s Mayor misguidedly buys a thawed, prehistoric Giant Flying Lizard egg to attract tourists. Inspector Gadget must save the pricy egg when Doctor Claw steals it and then save Metro City--and the entire world--when it hatches!
- In this movie, Gadget just as stupid and useless as he was in Gadget and the Gadgetinis (if not, moreso).
- According to this movie, Gadget can survive without his body and his eyes can pop out. This also means that Gadget is now fully robotic.
- This movie uses the talking Gadgetmobile from the live action movies just like Inspector Gadget's Last Case: Claw's Revenge
- The movie does not correlate with the other shows. First, Penny is selfish in the movie. In the 2015 series, she works with Gadget as an agent-in-training and is committed to it. There is no way she would stop working, and turn into a complete. It is very likely that this happened in an alternate universe.
