Trivia

The Murderer's only quote, "I dood it!" is also the title of a theatrical movie comedy, starring Red Skelton in 1943's I Dood It (1943). The murderer may have been Red Skelton with an uncredited role. The "I dood it." quote was said last before closing credits begin. Theatrical movie & short were both filmed by MGM aka Metro Goldwyn Mayer theatre studios. See more »

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.

It's a Tex Avery film from MGM....'nuff said!
1 August 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of two shorts from 1943 that were included as special features on the DVD for "Presenting Lily Mars". Fortunately, many classic MGM films include a few such shorts--and in this case it's an MGM short from Tex Avery--and it doesn't usually get much better than that.

This cartoon is like a cheesy radio murder mystery in cartoon form. Billy Bletcher (with a wonderful gravely voice) and Richard Hyden are the two main voices--but Avery himself provides one of the voices as well (he's unbilled but plays Santa). While the humor isn't among Avery's best, it has a lot of the usual goofy touches--enough to make it worth seeing--even the bad jokes (like the Red Skeleton one).
