    Re: FRogs working again on Gadget's Go Coaster

    I'm happy about this - at least it's got a smidgeon of theming now .

    It's a shame they didn't do more with the Gadget idea. She invented all sorts of crazy things out of everyday objects on the show. Maybe if the ride were more distinctive, people would know who she is nowadays .

    EDIT - do you think this has anything to do with The Princess and the Frog? Like, they want people to notice the frogs, so they'll think "frogs, frogs, frogs - suddenly, I want to buy lots of Princess and the Frog merchandise!" The timing of this repair does seem kind of funny.

    Woah, for the whole time the coaster has been there, I've been thinking this was based on Inspector Gadget... Boy does this make me look bad, hahaha. Well, at least I know now.

    You aren't alone. I've seen that posted many times .

    I find it interesting that 80's toon Inspector Gadget seems to be better known than 80's toon Gadget Hackwrench (that was her last name, as revealed in one episode). Is it because of that live action movie they did of Inspector Gadget with Mattew Broderick?

    OMG, Toon Town got some love? *faints*

    Seriously, I think it's a shame Disney created so many great characters for the Disney Afternoon *coughDarkwingDuckcough* and then let them vanish into the mists of time. Maybe this minor repair to Gadget's Go Coaster means they'll start dusting off some other forgotten toons and bringing them to Toon Town.

    Awesome, thanks for the pic. It looks like the squirting water would spray down on the passengers, is that right?

    Re: FRogs working again on Gadget's Go Coaster

    I think because it's called "Gadget's GO Coaster" specifically, people tend to think of the Inspector Gadget show, since one of his main catch phrases was "Go, Go Gadget...". I think that one little word makes it all the more confusing.
