A Stupid Sherlock
25 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, I was pumped when I saw this cartoon is a parody of him. Daffy Duck is "Dorlock Homes," who recalls one of his cases: "The Case of the Shropshire Slasher." His assistant, "Dr. Watkins," is played by Porky Pig. First off, the drawings of London and its streets are magnificent. Kudos to the artist(s).

Unfortunately, the rest of the cartoon didn't live up to that anticipated gem I was expecting. Instead of clever material about a clever detective, it was just stupid with zero cleverness. Basil Rathbone would roll over in his grave watching this, but Nigel Bruce might like it.
