Just The Ten of Us - I remember the theme song to this show too - "I'm doing it the best I can...seeing it from where I stand...nothing comes easy. Oh, I'm always bringing home second places at the end of every one of my days..." Does anyone else have information like this stored in their brain?
Inspector Gadget is the most famous and successful inspectors in all of the country. He has, after a terrible accident, had much of his body replaced with all manner of incredible gadgets, such as extentable arms and a helicopter in his hat, which he uses to fight crime. Except that Gadget is completely and utterly inept at his job. It is his neice, Penny, and her hyper intelligent dog Brain that solve the riddles and catch the badguys, and lets Uncle Gadget take the credit.
