*A Wyld Stallyns Exclusive
As a small boy, the world was filled with amazing wonders and intriguing mysteries. Naturally, as I transitioned from Little Tyke to Awesome Guy, most of those burning questions had been revealed; What does a boob feel like? How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop? Why do I look like our Mailman? There is however, still a small catalog of questions that still elude me with answers to this day. At the forefront of that list is the identity of that sinister Dr. Claw from the Inspector Gadget cartoon I watched religiously as a young boy. You’d think that after however many seasons that show was on, that there’d be some finale where the children of the world were finally treated with a glimpse of the evil mastermind behind their daily animated 30 minute capers. Sadly that was not the case. Dr. Claw has been forever shrouded behind a veil of shadows…UNTIL NOW!
In 1992, they made Inspector Gadget action figures, and obviously had to make a Dr. Claw figure to be our hero’s foil. Well boys & girls, brace yourselves…
Welp, there you have it. Dr. Claw apparently suffered a stroke back in ‘86. He also likes to wear sweet jackets. I’m thinking maybe he should stop holding bombs so nonchalantly unless he wants to be renamed Dr. Claws. I hope that adequately ruined a piece of your childhood.
