Typical Inspector short, with gags out of a Coyote/Roadrunner cartoon
This is an Inspector short from DePatie-Freleng. There will be spoilers ahead:
The Inspector is taking Mack La Truck to Devil's Island. In typical fashion, our "hero" gets himself left on a deserted island with a criminal who can snap him like a twig.
The Inspector winds up in a struggle for supremacy and control. The gags are largely straight out of an old Wile E. Coyote/Roadrunner short, what with falling boulders, elastic bands on tree trunks and traps which don't exactly work out as The Inspector intends.
Even the way La Truck is captured has him doing a poor man's Coyote, though the closing gag is good. This short has its moments, though not enough of them in my view.
This short is on the second of two DVDs of Inspector shorts which between them hold all 34 of the shorts in the series. The DVDs are worth getting.
