Inspector Clouseau is wrongly convicted of a crime committed by his look-alike. He is put into prison where he tries to break out so that he can find his look-alike and clear his own name, but all his escape attempts fail, and each time, a no-nonsense warden assigns additional years of imprisonment to the hapless Clouseau. Finally, Clouseau learns he will be granted freedom if he can pound one rock into pebbles-and it's the Rock of Gibraltar! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

The Inspector gets in deep trouble here

This is an Inspector Clouseau short (though they aren't called that, it's an animated version of Clouseau). There will be spoilers ahead:

The Inspector essentially carries this one. While out for a stroll, The Inspector bumps into a bank robber who looks like him. He gets the loot away from the robber only to get arrested for the robbery.

The bulk of the short is The Inspector in prison. The only person who believes he's a cop is his cell-mate, who he sent to jail. This is rather unfortunate for The Inspector.

The Inspector makes repeated escape attempts which are extraordinarily unsuccessful and highly detrimental to his chances for release. The cartoon is a bit predictable, but the ending is cute.

This short is on the second of two The Inspector DVDs which collect the 34 shorts in the series. The DVDs are well worth getting.
