Storyline

Inspector Clouseau is assigned to guard a large diamond, the De Gaulle Stone, from theft, but a three-headed villain in a black coat promptly takes it from him. Clouseau and Sergeant Deux-Deux track the three-headed thief to his hideout, where the thief has secreted the jewel in a glass of water. While searching the premises, Clouseau finds the glass, drinks its contents (jewel included), and is rushed to surgery. Doctors remove "a very expensive-looking gallstone" and give it to a nurse, who is the three-headed thief in disguise! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

'Inspector' Off To A Good Start
13 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

This was my first look at one of these "Inspector" cartoons, a spin off of the popular Pink Panther animated shorts. It was a good start, as far as I was concerned. It was fun to look at, and hear. Pat Harrington Jr., best remembered by older folks like me for his television role as the janitor "Schneider," in "One Day At A Time" (1975-1984) does a great job voicing the lead characters. That would be "The Inspector (Clouseau) and his partner "Deux-Deux."

Inspector and Deux-Deux (say the latter out loud and you'll go "ouch") are guard a diamond at the DeGaulle Château that is worth billions of francs. Out to steal it are brothers, in the form of three heads on one body! They are named Weft, Wight and Wong. The one in the middle does a Charlie Chan impression, quoting Confusion (instead of Confucius) Yes, some of the gags are corny and some predictable but this is great fun.

The visuals are fantastic; great drawings and a humorous villain who, oddly, gets away with the crime! Well, nobody ever confused Inspector Clouseau with Sherlock Holmes. I hope the other 16 cartoons in this DVD collection ("The Pink Panther Classic Cartoon Collection, Vol. 6 - Inspector Cartoons.) are as entertaining as this first one.
