Inspector vs. crow. Guess which one is the birdbrain.
This is an Inspector short from Dapatie-Freling. There will be spoilers ahead:
The Inspector is investigating a jewel robbery, only to discover that the thief is a crow. From the first, The Inspector is over-matched and outwitted. This is made repeatedly (and painfully) clear to The Inspector throughout the short.
The bird is seemingly one step ahead of The Inspector at every turn. Sometimes, The Inspector's biggest problem is himself, but this is one resourceful bird. The Inspector falls from great heights, is shot and blown up at various points, mostly because he's dumber than the crow.
Some of the gags are reminiscent of old Looney Tunes bits and they're mostly predictable. There are still quite a few laughs here in any case.
This short is available on DVD, one of the two The Inspector DVDs which contain all 34 of The Inspector shorts in the series. This short and the DVDs themselves are recommended.
