Unbeknownst to him, he has already narrowly escaped several covert attempts on his life by two jewel thieves. Clouseau goes to see a psychiatrist, who turns out to be one of the thieves in disguise!

One of my favorite Inspector shorts, with a last line that I consider hilarious
I remember watching this short years ago and the basic plot and last line have stayed with me ever since, though I couldn't recall the title. A couple of years ago, 17 of the 34 Inspector Clouseau cartoon shorts were released on DVD, but this short wasn't included.
Last year, a box set composed mostly of material I already had, but with the other 17 Inspectors and the Roland and Ratfinks on two new discs got released and I finally broke down and bought it, even though I already owned roughly 75-80% of the DVDs. Mild spoilers follow: The Inspector has a feeling of impending doom, because strange accidents keep happening all around him, which we see as he tells his troubles to a psychiatrist. He wonders if the accidents are related to his latest assignment-to carry around a valuable jewel.
He successfully gets his assignment completed and then comes the denouement, which I won't reveal. I love the end, though your mileage may vary.
The set's worth getting if you don't have the rest of the discs already. Recommended.
