Last night we sat as a family  and watched Inspector Gadget saves Christmas.

It was shorter than we expected (more an episode rather than a movie) but it was fun to watch together. My five and seven year olds enjoyed it, although having not seen Inspector Gadget before they took a little while to understand he is fairly inept!

Gadget’s niece, Penny, goes with him to the North Pole after hearing stories that Santa may be in trouble. The elves have been mesmerised into drones and Santa imprisoned by a man still angry over not getting a requested gift on Christmas Eve!

So a nice bit of fun rather than the repeated Christmas movies.
