Inspector Clouseau and Sergeant Deux-Deux investigate the theft of French dowager Madame Pouletbon's diamond, the Plymouth Rock, and discover that the Madame's servants, all of them chickens, stole the jewel and hid it in a bundle of eggs, some of which contain moving images of can can girls.Written by

This is one of the wilder story lines I've seen so far in this collection of "Inspector" cartoons. It's so ridiculous it's funny and is going to sound strange just describing. Our Two Heroes have to go to the Marquis' château to find a stolen diamond, which is the biggest you've ever seen - guaranteed.
Since the Marquis has hired nothing but chickens as servants, our famous detective must question the chickens. Of course, he has to learn their language first and then use his chicken disguise. Then he tells one "suspect" a joke to get in the chicken's good graces. I can't go on - this is too crazy! Suffice to say this certainly is an "original" story and I enjoyed the absurdity of it.
Speaking of that, the ending is really absurd and is so abrupt, it leaves you saying, "huh? That's it?" The ending is either totally weak or genius, depending on how you view it.
