I’ll get you next time Gadget. Next time!

As a warning there is pretty much no design in this post.

Also, I am about to ruin your childhood.

It was bad enough when “Inspector Gadget” the movie came out (bet you forgot about that gem didn’t you?) and they decided to cast Rupert Everett as Dr. Claw, by far the scariest most fear inducing villain of my youth. Not that there isn’t something kind of menacing about Rupert Everett, but I see him more as the peculiar purple pieman from Strawberry Shortcake, or really any villainous character who also dances and prances about. But no, they had to cast him as Dr. Claw… and they had to give him a face. (If you weren’t a total dork in the 80’s I may need to mention here that Dr. Claw never had a face in the cartoon, the most you ever saw his claw—He was a metal glove and booming voice.)

It was understandable being that a live action Gadget movie need some star power, but then toys came out… And instead of sticking with Mr. Everett they decided to once and for all create Dr. Claw’s face.

As I was being told this story on Sunday we were prompted to guess Claw’s fate. I guessed a back of a chair with a hand that turned to around to reveal another back of a chair with a hand!  I still think that would have been awesome. But no, the toy makers went ahead and gave the awesomest (and honestly most easily defeated) villain of my cartoon youth the face of Doc from Back To The Future... traveling at g-force.
