Trivia

The Murderer's only quote, "I dood it!" is also the title of a theatrical movie comedy, starring Red Skelton in 1943's I Dood It (1943). The murderer may have been Red Skelton with an uncredited role. The "I dood it." quote was said last before closing credits begin. Theatrical movie & short were both filmed by MGM aka Metro Goldwyn Mayer theatre studios. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Host: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Tonight, through the medium of the animated cartoon, we present a murder mystery condensed from authentic criminal records. It is my sincere purpose in exposing the brutal killer in this horrible case to prove to you beyond the shadow of a doubt that crime does not pay. Our story opens on a dark and stormy night.

Blend of live-action and animation in this Tex Avery jewel
19 November 2002 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

What can you say about a cartoon featuring the vocal talents of Billy Bletcher (best known as Pegleg Pete in Disney shorts) and Richard Haydn (character actor) and spoofing everything from detective stories to Red Skelton (twice)? This kitchen-sink cartoon is just great, with the most disturbing household staff this side of Lurch and Thing. Also the best Santa Claus gag I've ever seen in a cartoon. One of the few (perhaps the only) time Tex used full animation in conjunction with live action footage, although he did do two of the "Speaking of Animals" shorts for Twentieth Century-Fox. Well worth seeing. Most highly recommended.
