Quotes

[first lines]
Host: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Tonight, through the medium of the animated cartoon, we present a murder mystery condensed from authentic criminal records. It is my sincere purpose in exposing the brutal killer in this horrible case to prove to you beyond the shadow of a doubt that crime does not pay. Our story opens on a dark and stormy night.

Hilarious, isn't it?
20 August 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

This was brilliant animated short filled with classic Tex Avery jokes. The story has a detective investigating a murder in an old house. But the detective finds everything from ghosts to Santa Clause in the house. This was pure genius and exactly what I expected from Tex Avery.
