The Inspector is his own worst enemy here

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

A criminal escapes from The Inspector's custody, having vowed revenge against the Commissioner. The Commissioner fires The Inspector for letting the man escape, so The Inspector takes it on his own to "protect" the Commissioner. That's his first mistake.

There follows a series of mishaps which lead to The Inspector being considered a threat by the Commissioner, though the viewer knows that The Inspector is only guilty of gross incompetence and stupidity.

This ends about as well as anything ends for The Inspector, given that he's basically an idiot. The ending is funny even as it's predictable.

This short is included on one of the two DVDs which contain the 34 Inspector shorts. The DVDs are worth getting.
