Storyline

Inspector Clouseau is posted with the Canadian Mounted Police to study their crime investigation system and is assigned to apprehend a villain named Two-Faced Harry, who actually has two faces, one deceptively honest-looking, the other malicious. Clouseau doesn't realize these two faces are of the same man until he has chased the two-faced freak into the snowy plains of Manitoba. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Interesting premise which deserved better gags

This is an Inspector short from Depatie-Freleng. There will be spoilers ahead:

The Inspector is part of an exchange program with Canada. His first assignment is to bring in Two-Faced Harry, who literally has two faces. The Inspector wastes no time in meeting one of Harry's two faces in a saloon.

The sole reason this cartoon works at all is because The Inspector isn't the shiniest pebble in the pond. Virtually every gag in this up until the ending requires that The Inspector do or say something stupid. This takes the intriguing premise and wastes it, burying it under the same old "The Inspector is a bumbling idiot" routine.

The ending works, but it's hardly novel, having been used in some form by most animation studios previously, to better effect.

This short is available on the second of two DVDs which contain between them all 34 of the Inspector shorts. The DVDs are well worth getting.
