Just revisited the first two episodes of Inspector Gadget via Hulu.  It's been a long time.  While watching I was struck by a theory regarding the Inspector's ineptness:

Running the the myriad cybernetic implants and prosthetics requires so much brain power that it has impaired his cognitive function.  It can be hard enough coordinating two arms and two legs...now add several more arms, a helicopter, roller skates, a mobile phone, automatic binoculars, a laser torch, etc. etc. etc...there's only so much cerebral material to go around, and each limb requires a share (their occasional malfuction suggests that there aren't _enough_ shares to go around).

Probably, the Inspector was actually a brilliant man before the operation (a fact he dimly remembers) and his brilliance is the only reason he's still able to walk and breathe at the same time.

...and that's probably enough thought given to an 80s cartoon show.  Other than to mention that Penny's computer book seems incredibly prescient...if somewhat bulky.
