Daffy Duck disguises himself as an old mountain man, as a sheriff, as an executioner, and as Pocahontas to heckle Porky Pig, who has come to what he thought was a secluded woodland to paint pictures of the scenery.
Daffy Duck is "Dorlock Homes", and Porky Pig is "Watkins". The intrepid duo are sleuthing in Victorian London in hopes of finding and apprehending the Shorepshire Slasher.Written by

An awkward cartoon which is saved by a great script*
I enjoyed this Looney Tune very much - especially as Porky and Daffy were partners here. Daffy Duck is "Dorlock Holmes" and Porky is Watkins, his assistant. You have probably guessed already what this episode is about even if you did not know what happens beforehand. I didn't know what would happen - which is why it was such a great surprise for me that Daffy Duck was Sherlock Holmes! The way he has an unintelligent character here is something annoying that could have been changed, but in some aspects he was smart. As Watkins says at the beginning of the episode (which I think Watson himself says in the book), "I discovered he was a very observant person". Someone here said in his/her review that Daffy Duck has 0 intelligence as Sherlock Holmes but this is not true.
Dorlock Holmes has to track down the criminal Shropshire Slasher and so he and Watkins set off. The Shropshire Slasher that the pair find is not who they expect to find...
I recommend this episode to people who like Daffy when he is less intelligent than Porky, people who want to see Porky and Daffy as partners rather than enemies and people who love Looney Tunes in general. Enjoy "Deduce You Say"! :-)
P.S The last line is the funniest - so wait patiently for it.
*Sorry to use your summary magicunicorn, but I agree with you so much that I had to use it (almost to the word) as well. ;-)
