I've seen this mustachio'd version somewhere before. But where? When? And WHY?
Inspector Gadget was a real role model for kids back in the day.
The one thing I remember from the moustached Inspector Gadget was that he was slightly less oblivious than the clean-shaven one. Like was actually able to recognize an obviously disguised bomb or something in an episode I saw. Only remember one ep like that though, and apparently it was significant enough that, 20 years later, it still sticks out.
And wow, the wikipedia page for the show is great - it practically gives a flowchart for the entire show. Go go Gadget obsessive fandom...

They probably would have had to write him as a completely different character had they left the mustache on.
This show and William Shatner are the only good things to ever come out of Canada.
At what point did they decide the mustache was inappropriate for children?
The clean-shaven Gadget looked like a more believable bumbler.
Probably just cheaper not to draw a mustache.
Wow, someone's still in high school.
it makes him look too european.
That is a powerful mustache.
If I grew up with Inspector Gadget having that 'stache, I'd have had a good male role model.
I thought I hallucinated this when I was a kid...

He looks so much cooler with the Mustache.
Try to imagine a truly incompetent guy with a mustache like that. Try it, I dare you.
Unmerciful Crushing Force
Hell, even in the intro, he just seems to be far more hardcore. Like actually doing shit.
Of course, I think that the creators realized that the only way it could end with the mustached version is Gadget breaking into MAD's headquarters, planting radio-controlled mines around the complex and then go-go-gadget-headcapping Dr. Claw.

I used to covet the hell out of Penny's computer book when I was six.
At 0:45, the bird pops him and he's completely gone, not just his coat.
Horrifying. It's like a snuff film.
I looked online and found out what Dr. Claw actually looked like. Don't make that mistake as it's anticlimactic as all hell. Your imagination is much better than his character design.
For those who never found out, Claw turned out to be just some guy with Crazy Eyes.
