For the second Inspector Gadget takeover, see April Fools' Day 2018.

The Inspector Gadget Takeover (also known as Gadget Week) was a major channel event in which a clone of Inspector Gadget took over the channel.


This takeover, like The Voice's takeover before it, follows the SiIvaGunner lore. Specifically, it follows from the seventh CCC episode, "Loves the Ladies", in which The Voice angers President Haltmann by failing to resurrect his daughter Susie. Haltmann, fed up with The Voice violating his promises, builds Gadgetini Clone 2.0 to oust the Voice from his own tower in "[AUDIOLOG: 19:27, HEAD_OFFICE]", thus beginning this takeover.

The Gadget takeover ends with "An announcement from your new leader", another lore video which involves Gadget being destroyed by a copyright claim, and Haltmann taking over the channel in his place.

This event was later incorporated into the ninth CCC episode, "Timbre of a Kazoo". Gadgetini Clone 2.0 was discussed in the tenth Haltmann's Archives file, "Robotic Usurper". In "The Life and Times of Wade L.D.", it's shown that Wade helped in the creation of Gadgetini 2.0.


The channel's avatar was changed to Inspector Gadget in darkness with glowing, purple eyes, imitating the previous avatar of The Voice. The banner, however, remained as the Voice's Tower banner from the beginning of The SilvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis.

The channel description was changed to:

Oh, SilvaGunner! I cannot wait to watch SilvaGunner. Do you know what my favorite thing to do is in SilvaGunner? I love making video game rips with SilvaGunner. Making video game rips with SilvaGunner is the best thing and the most amount of fun you can have while running a YouTube channel. I understand why all the kids are watching this channel these days—it's because they like video game rips with SilvaGunner. I also like to make video game rips with SilvaGunner. It's the most fun you can possibly have.

What is the point of SilvaGunner?

Rips uploaded

All of the takeover's rips (with three exceptions) featured the Inspector Gadget theme from the 1983 TV series of the same name or Mike Matei's "Minecraft with Gadget". These rips were compiled into the album Inspector Gunner at the end of the event.

Inspector Gadget's catchphrase is also used during this event: "Go-Go-Gadget Channel Description!"

I don't like this game. Seems more like “monkey see, monkey do,” than using creative energy.
