As a whole I love the early Inspector shorts. Has wonderful designs, funny gags, and the character interactions between the Inspector and Sgt. Deux-Deux makes it worthwhile. However, half-way through the series Deux-Deux began appearing less and less.
John Dunn, who wrote the earlier shorts with the character, stopped writing on Inspector and the duty went to Jim Ryan instead. Dunn, Tony Benedict, Jack Miller, and David Detiege occasionally filled in during this time.
Unfortunately Jim Ryan was a weak writer. His gags often fell apart and the story can be incoherent, and he never seemed to know how to end a cartoon.
This cartoon marks the only time Ryan used Deux-Deux and it ended up being his last appearance. However he's a completely different character here; while in his other appearances he would play as Inspector's reluctant sidekick here he's portrayed as an eager young recruit. He even has a different voice as well, courtesy of Don Messick.
