Sherlock Holmes
6 May 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty amusing cartoon with Daffy Duck as a detective named Dorlock Holmes and is little helper is Porky Pig as Watkins, both with the voice of Mel Blanc. Of course set in London they investigate a case that involves the Shropshire Slasher. Although Daffy thinks he is the smart detective he makes mistakes over and over again. Porky seems the more suitable man for the job.

This Looney Tunes take on Sherlock Holmes and Watkins is a pretty funny one, although it not very memorable. It has some nice moments, especially Porky Pig made me laugh quite some times. 'Deduce, You Say' is worth watching but not much more than that.
