This received mixed reveiws from Inspector Gadget fans. While some were happy that Gadget was getting revived, some hated the show being in 3D (after what happened with Inspector Gadget's Biggest Caper Ever), Claw not being as evil anymore, Gadget being more useless, throwing away the 22 minute story format, and fans who supported William/Penny from Gadget and the Gadgetinis hated the Talon and Penny relationship , but some fans have been able to embrace the pairing and the series itself.
