Inspector Clouseau dresses like a woman in an attempt to nab a purse-snatcher at the Paris Hotel D'Hote, but the Surete Commissioner thinks that the disguised Clouseau really is really a woman- Clouseau's sister- and since Clouseau is too embarrassed to identify himself to the Commissioner, he decides to go along with the Commissioner to a restaurant in the Hotel D'Hote. They end up in the Commissioner's own apartment, where the Commissioner's wife is home with a headache! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Extremely Funny 'Inspector'' Effort - Maybe The Best
15 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an outstanding episode, maybe the best of The Inspector that I have seen so far (out of about a dozen). There is a purse snatcher on the loose and the Commissioner wants him captured because the crook had the audacity to steal his wife's purse!

Deux-Deux has the idea of the Inspector dressing up as a woman to then nabbing the thief when he tries to grab "his" purse. The Inspector gets all dressed but then thinks twice about looking like a woman and tells Deux-Deux he will have to do it. Before he gets his female clothes off, however, things begin to happen and the fun starts.

Without spoiling anything, I'll just say this turned out to be a great slapstick-like story with The Inspector, the Commissioner and the Commissioner's wife all getting involved with some very, very good sight gags.

This one always is beautifully drawn. It's on the DVD "The Pink Panther Classic Cartoon Collection, Vol. 6 - Inspector Cartoons." Don't miss this one!
