        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... :bang: 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?

                            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.

                                No, Gadget had the Go Coaster because she was the team inventor; Chip and Dale had the treehouse right by the coaster.

                                  yeah i did a little research after i posted that
                                  i couldn't find a thing on chipndale's go coaster

                                  plus i was 7 the last time i rode that
                                  little kids always confuse the actual titles of things

                                  and how is spitting in disneyland getting you in trouble back on topic? )

                                    i wish they had just done more with toontown in general. It is by far my favorite land. There could have been so many rides they could have added, or at least kept the place looking nice. I like the fact that this year they finally did a refurb on the whole place, except for one of the most popular rides in the park...RRCTS, but hopefully that is coming soon!!! I think they need more rides like RRCTS and should bring back, as someone stated before characters like duckwing duck, or scrooge (ie ducktales). I think it's just that those cartoons are too far in the past, and not nearly big enough to do anything with...oh well such is life...

                                      Ahh, but those cartoons could have been/stayed big, if Disney had been willing to do something other than toss the characters into a vault and forget about them.

                                      Yes, I do still have fond memories of the summer they decked areas out as "Disney Afternoon Avenue", why do you ask?
