If you’re an Inspector Gadget fan, then you know the show only begins once a mysterious (and often angry) police chief shows up in the most unexpected places. Police Chief Quimby and his self-destructing messages set the tone for the entire series. The Inspector Gadget message gag remains as classic as the pie-in-the-face trope; better still, it’s different every time yet somehow always retains the same humor.

Self-destructing messages in Inspector Gadget are hilarious for the same outlandish reasons the titular character's gadgets are funny. The genius comes in their delivery. And who better to deliver them than Metro City’s finest police chief? You’ll be sure to find him undercover in some of the most bewildering situations ever, providing viewers with the blasts everybody wants to see. From grazing sheep fields to boiling cauldrons, from hiding in vending machines to sliding between the slices of towering sandwiches, Chief Quimby proves once and for all that he knows how to get his message over the threshold and on to his bumbling employee. Unfortunately for him, that message always seems to blow up in his face.
