Gadget is perpetually high due to machine fluids running through his body
This is a theory I read on the forums, but it makes so much sense: Gadget isn’t dumb, he’s perpetually high off his rocker due to all the machine fluids, oil, etc. running through his body. Just look at his actions: He’s smart enough to utilize an upside-down umbrella as a basket for holding garbage but mistakes a mechanical dragon for a dumpster. That’s not stupidity, that’s drug-induced hallucination.
The catch is that adrenaline can override the drugs and make him “normal” again, which is why he sometimes starts kicking ass (especially when Penny is in trouble): he’s actually his real self during those times. He also seems competent and sane when he’s at home just chilling, in other words at times when he’s not using his machines as much.

Inspector Gadget is an animated television show produced by DiC Entertainment, which the titular character serves as the mascot for.
Inspector Gadget, is the titular protagonist of the franchise of the same name. He is Penny’s uncle, one of Brain’s owners, and Chief Quimby’s top employee.
Inspector Gadget is creative, heroic, mild-mannered, determined, brave and kindhearted, although he’s also dim-witted, bumbling, gullible, incompetent, clumsy, and clueless. He also has a horrible judge of character and he thinks that the bad guys are his allies and his allies are his enemies.
He loves his niece Penny with all his heart and would do anything to protect her from harm. In fact, whenever he sees Penny in danger, he becomes competent and goes out of his way to rescue her
2003 comedy film by Alex Zamm
Inspector Gadget 2 (alternatively known as IG2 or Inspector 2 Gadget in the title sequence) is a 2003 American live-action comedy film, released direct-to-video on VHS and DVD on March 11, 2003. The film is based on the 1983 cartoon series created by DiC Entertainment and is a sequel to the 1999 film, Inspector Gadget.
Unlike the first film, Inspector Gadget 2 draws more influence from the original cartoon series. The characters’ personalities were altered to be more in line with their cartoon counterparts and Dr. Claw’s face is never shown. Gadget and Claw are never referred to as “John Brown” and “Sanford Scolex”, their respective civilian names from the first film (though Claw’s communicator is still labeled as “Scolex Industries”).
With the exception of D. L. Hughley, who returned as the voice of the Gadgetmobile, none of the actors from the 1999
Based on the popular cartoon character of the same name, Inspector Gadget is an adventure comedy about a somewhat naive and inept security guard, John Brown, whose big heart is equal to his far-fetched dreams of becoming the world’s greatest police officer. However, nothing is impossible. Suddenly unexpected circumstances make him the ideal candidate for a top secret law enforecment project, and pretty scientist Dr. Brenda Bradford applies her expertise in robotics to build him into a man of many talents–and accessories. Using a vast array of grafted-on gizmos and doohickies to bust bad guys, the often clueless Inspector Gadget must also employ his common sense to crack an especially complicated case. As he penetrates Riverton City’s darkest underworld, Inspector Gadget must save not only his good name and reputation, but also rescue the world from the nefarious Claw.
