The New Inspector Gadget Adventures is the another incarnation of the Inspector Gadget franchise. A revival of the original show, The New Inspector Gadget Adventures aired for one season that consisted of 26 episodes in Nickelodeon Canada as a half-hour program. The show was produced by the Cookie Jar Entertainment. The show first premiered on September 4, 2010. It was also made by three original creators: Bruno Bianchi, Jean Chalopin and Andy Heyward. It was the final incarnation made by Bruno Bianchi before his death.
The show follows the original format of the series, with Inspector Gadget attempting to solve any mission and stop an evil plot made by Dr. Claw, but he's too clueless and has problems with his gadgets, while his niece, Penny, and dog, Brain, do all the work. Despite that the show followed the original format of the series, Dr. Claw didn't appear in some episodes and other villains did, just like in Gadget and the Gadgetinis.

Differences from the original series
Despite the show following the original format of the series, it contains several differences:
- The Gadget Mobile changes to not only the Gadget Van, but also into Gadget Jet, Gadget Boat, Gadget Hovercraft, Gadget Jeep and Gadget Motocycle. Like in the live-action and animated movies, The Gadget Mobile contains an ability to speak.
- Penny has several new gadgets of her own, such as the X-ray contact lenses and a hair clip that contains a listening device.
- Penny's computer book and computer watch have also been upgraded. The computer book's cover is silver and more futuristic. The inside of the book is like the regular laptop computer. Other than computer, magnetic, communication, or laser powers, Penny's watch also contains a rope with a hook that is fired from the watch itself. Also, instead of Brain or Chief Quimby appearing in the watch's screen while Penny is contacting them, their holographic images come from the watch's screen.
- Brain's collar also receives an upgrade: It also contains a TV-like screen to contact with Penny and, just like in her watch, the holographic image of Penny comes out of the screen. Also, just like in the Gadget and the Gadgetinis episode "No Brainer", which guest-starred Brain, it contains a device that helps Brain speak in human language and his voice is spoken in a Woody Allen impersonation, just like in "No Brainer".
- The endings of every episode are also different. Instead of safety tips at the end of the every episode of the original series and Gadget making more harm to Col. Nozzaire at the end of the every episode of Gadget and the Gadgetinis, the endings contained the skit scenes which featured Gadget doing many stupid things or having troubles with his gadgets.
