They reaveled the face of Dr. Claw in the toy line, it was very disapointing.

I normally just stick with news of '80s cartoons being released to DVD, in keeping with the nature of this forum and all, but sometimes if I see cool cartoons and shows of other eras, I might also mention them. This one I'm mainly mentioning here because it is a spin-off of the classic "Inspector Gadget" series and it does still feature Don Adams, legendary voice of Inspector Gadget and of course, actor who starred as Maxwell Smart on "Get Smart". (I'm sure you probably either already knew that or "missed it by that much". Laughing )
Here's one release that hopefully will have you checking it out "and loving it!"
Anyway- "Gadget Boy's Adventures in History"- The Complete Series has made it to DVD! It was released February 21st. in 2012 from Mill Creek. This is actually the 2nd. Season of "Gadget Boy" - The 1st. Season (known as "Gadget Boy and Heather") has not been released in a season DVD set yet- but hopefully will soon follow. The whole 1st. Season does seem to be available on iTunes though and there have been some DVD releases with a few select episodes here and there.

Wowzers!
Finally the entire "Inspector Gadget" series will be on DVD!!!!!!!!
This is an '80s classic that is a particular favorite for me, so I am quite excited to see this show finally get a full DVD release in Region 1. (As it has been available in other Regions.)

A company called New Video has apparently gotten the rights for the series now and is finally releasing "Inspector Gadget" in Season DVD volume releases.
Season 1 is getting released in 3 volumes on DVD and then Season 2 is getting a one volume DVD release. All 4 of these releases are coming out on September 24, 2013!
And on top of that, the "Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas" reunion special from 1992 is getting rereleased to DVD on October 8, 2013 as well!
Read more on it here-

You can go ahead and preorder all these releases from Amazon.com now!

Season 1, Volume 1
Season 1, Volume 2
Season 1, Volume 3
Season 2
Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas
Very Happy Cool

Okay- it looks like the DVD release of the full series has been pushed back to October 8th. - and the Christmas special is getting released on October 29th. - but they are still on the way and that's not too much of a delay.
And there is an Inspector Gadget Megaset getting released to DVD which will include the entire original series (all 86 episodes- given that Don Adams voiced Inspector Gadget and that he played iconic spy Maxwell Smart on "Get Smart"- I wonder if the episode count was meant as a tribute to him, since he was Agent 86 on the show.) - anyway, all the original series is on this set, along with a follow-up 90 minute special: "Inspector Gadget's Last Case: Claw's Revenge" Very Happy Cool
(This is very cool to include- it's just too bad the "Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas" and "Inspector Gadget's Biggest Caper Ever"specials aren't included as well. Oh well- both of those have been released separately to DVD anyway.)

Check out the cool artwork for all these Inspector Gadget releases! Very Happy Cool

Cool- great price! Yeah, I wish the megaset had really included all the various Inspector Gadget specials...but at least you can get those separately on DVD still.

The only set to contain the original pilot version of "Winter Olympics" where Gadget has a mustache and a British accent (Thanks to Gary Owens) is the region 4 Australian release "Inspector Gadget - The Original Series Vol.1" from Magna Pacific Video. No other set contains this rare version of the pilot, not even the Australian re-release of the series! Its unfortunate that this historical pilot is not included in the Region 1 box set, or any other set across the globe for that matter.

Thanks for that tidbit- I didn't realize that pilot wasn't included with the Region 1 Inspector Gadget DVD set- that's a shame they didn't get that on there too.
However, unless I'm mistaken, I do believe the pilot episode you're referring to, ("Winter Olympics") is indeed included on this Region 1 DVD release (http://www.amazon.com/Inspector-Gadget-The-Files/dp/B00026L7YK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1408937355&sr=8-1&keywords=%22Inspector+Gadget%22+%2B+Gadget+Files)

which is incidentally, one of the few Inspector Gadget videos I have. Very Happy Cool

You are correct Winter Olympics IS included on ALL releases worldwide, only it is not the version voiced by Gary Owens. There was 3 different versions of Winter Olympics:

First version voiced by Gary Owens- this is only available on the Region 4 Magna Pacific Box Set 1 from Australia. Not available on any other VHS, DVD, or any other format.

Second version voiced by Jesse Nelson- This is considered lost forever- it has never turned up and not in DiCs archives.

Third and final version voiced by Don Adams- This is available everywhere and on the region 1 set you mention.
