my Mad Time party as Inspector Gadget

Let me tell you about the time I found myself with more gadgets than a Swiss Army knife at a tech convention. While you might recognize my voice from various video games and narrations, nothing quite prepared me for the wacky world of voicing the one, the only, Inspector Gadget in the video game 'Inspector Gadget: Mad Time Party.'





Now, for those of you not in the know (and have possibly been living under a rock, or in Dr. Claw's secret hideout), Inspector Gadget is a detective with more gizmos in his hat than I have voice-over scripts in my studio. And when I was approached to voice this iconic character, I thought, "Why not? How hard could it be to voice a man who has an inflatable coat that makes him look like a Thanksgiving Day parade balloon?"


The process was as wild as Gadget's adventures. I spent countless hours in the sound booth, practicing how to say "Go-Go-Gadget Voice Roller Skates!" without bursting into uncontrollable laughter. I had to channel my inner child, the one that marveled at Gadget's antics on the TV screen, all while trying not to sound like I was ordering a latte at a high-tech coffee shop.


Recording for 'Inspector Gadget: Mad Time Party' was an exercise in hilarity and chaos. There were times when I'd be voicing Gadget's heroic lines, only to have the director say, "That's great, Tom, but can you make it sound like you're being tickled by a feather while stuck in a giant bubble gum bubble?" I mean, how do you even prepare for that? Is there a class at the local community college?


The game itself is a riot – a party game where you can play as the man himself, or one of his many colorful time-traveling ancestors. It's like if Mario Party was invaded by a cyborg detective and his niece who probably deserves the true detective badge. And the minigames! Oh, the minigames.


So, there you have it. I lent my voice to a character that's a delightful blend of nostalgia and nose-diving into the absurd. 'Inspector Gadget: Mad Time Party' is a game that's as bonkers as its name suggests, and I'm proud to say I'm the voice behind the inspector's trench coat.


Just remember, the next time you hear Gadget's voice spring out of your console, that's me, probably in a booth somewhere, making the sound of a man being propelled by a rocket skates, and loving every mad minute of it.
