Deduce, You Say is another legendary heroes spoof from Daffy and Porky
7 January 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is another Daffy Duck-Porky Pig cartoon short directed by Chuck Jones in which the two leads portray legendary folk heroes. In this one the duck is Dorlock Holmes and the pig is Watkins. They're on the search for the Shropshire Slasher. Daffy, as usual, has trouble taking him in while Porky manages to convince him to turn himself over especially after Daffy insults the Slasher's mother. Not hilarious but has many very amusing bits like the times when Daffy loses his beak after tripping on the stairs or some of the clues he takes. Notice in the credits the director actually is credited as "Chuck Jones" and not his previous "Charles M. Jones". This was on disc 2 of The Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Vol. 1.
