Inspector Gadget's Field Trip (onscreen title: Field Trip Starring Inspector Gadget) is a spin-off incarnation of Inspector Gadget, produced by DIC Productions L.P. in 1996. The series originally aired on The History Channel in the United States. Two seasons consisting of a total of 22 episodes were aired, ending in 1998, where the show continued in reruns on The History Channel until 2000. In 2001, the show began airing reruns in syndication and later aired as part of the E/I DIC Kids Network syndicated block. Comedian Don Adams returned as the voice of Inspector Gadget. The series was an educational travelogue program for children, in which the animated Gadget would show viewers the many different sites in famous places around the world via live-action-clips with historical facts.[1] The theme song is slightly similar to the one in the Gadget Boy series; in fact, Gadget Boy himself made a cameo appearance in one episode.

Gadget was the only main character to appear in this series; others such as Penny, Brain, Chief Quimby (although mentioned by Gadget in some episodes), Capeman and Dr. Claw were absent.

A Spanish-dubbed version aired on Univision's Planeta U block on Saturday mornings as Los Viajes de Inspector Gadget. During the opening sequence, an image of the Temple of Saturn in the ancient forum in Rome, Italy, is presented with the label of "Greece."
