"Do Unto Udders" is the 48th episode of the first season of Inspector Gadget.

Synopsis

Gadget comes home from the supermarket with food and bad news for Penny and Brain: The store was out of their usual brand Metro Dairy Farms, so they have to make do with more expensive dairy products from the mysterious New Foods Dairy (whose logo is sinister and slightly familiar-looking: a yellow-eyed, black cow's face against a red background). Conveniently enough, Chief Quimby assisns Gadget to Metro Dairy Farms to find out why the cows there have suddenly stopped producing milk as Penny goes to investigate while Brain folows Gadget. The inspector heads out to the country to investigate, but Claw has no intention to let Gadget stop His dairy monopoly, so He sends M.A.D. agents to intercept him.

Meanwhile, Penny noses around a refrigerated New Foods Dairy truck and is trapped inside. Once the truck reaches its destination (the dairy itself), the little girl escapes and discovers the whole operation is run by Claw. A scan with her computer book locates a rotating satellite-type dish atop a silo that is sending a signal to cows at other dairies in the area that has somehow dried up their milk glands.

Up the road a piece, Gadget (with Brain's anonymous help) avoids the hazards from Claw's agents ― a phony cop who tries to run him off the road, but crashes near a gas station after Gadget accidentally lasers His motorcycle, an unlikely farmer who gives him wrong directions, an agent driving a thresher through a booby-trapped bridge, and an assassin dressed as an elderly woman ― and eventually makes his way to New Foods Dairy (thinking it's actually Metro Dairy Farms), forcing Claw to summon all His agents to eliminate Gadget.

Busy with their own evil dairy farm chores, the M.A.D. agents let loose a relentlessly persistent and aggressive bull to finish off the inspector. Gadget gets tossed around a bit by the bull, but manages to avoid serious injury. From his computer console, Claw spots Penny by the sound wave dish and dispatches an agent to stop Her. Penny has managed to disable the dish and contacted Chief Quimby. As Penny heads down, the agent was ready to jump Penny, but Quimby with other policemen arrive, with one of them, chasing the agent. Quimby congratulates Gadget for a job well done, as Brain holding a pitchfork and encased in Cheese walks the rest of the agents (and the bull) into custody, thus putting an end to Claw's monopoly scheme.

The episode ends with Gadget and Penny talking about how important dairy foods are.

Trivia

  • The episode title is a play on the commandment Do Unto Others.
  • This episode marks the only time M.A.D. Cat actually retaliated against Dr. Claw’s abuse, namely super gluing his fist to his desk to keep Claw from pounding the desk with him on it.
