Storyline

Inspector Clouseau is posted with the Canadian Mounted Police to study their crime investigation system and is assigned to apprehend a villain named Two-Faced Harry, who actually has two faces, one deceptively honest-looking, the other malicious. Clouseau doesn't realize these two faces are of the same man until he has chased the two-faced freak into the snowy plains of Manitoba. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

The Inspector and the two faced villain
13 August 2019 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Although not all the thirty four The Inspector cartoons worked for me, they are all worth the look at least. Enough of them too are good enough, with the best of them being not too far off from the standard of a lot of the Pink Panther cartoons, to make the series of The Inspector cartoons one of DePatie-Freleng Enterprises' overall better, and deservedly more famous, theatrical cartoons series.

'Canadian Can-Can', while still watchable, is one of The Inspector cartoons that didn't really do it for me and never really rises above average in overall quality. Up to this just-over-halfway point of the series it is a lesser outing and one of the more routine ones. Other The Inspector cartoons are much funnier, are more interesting and have more imagination, and that's even with a different setting for the series.

There are good points. Have no issues with the animation, one of the better assets of even the lesser cartoons in the series, simple but neatly detailed and richly coloured. Liked the jauntiness and jazzy slinkiness of the music, which didn't sound too cheap or repetitive.

Regardless of what my stance on the cartoon is, my thoughts on The Inspector are always the same and this is in a good way. His bumbling is both amusing and endearing and Pat Harrington Jr brings that out very well. There are a few mildly amusing moments, with the ending being one of the better parts, and Two-Faced Harry is one of the series' most oddball and most interesting villains, even the look of him stands out.

Sadly, 'Canadian Can-Can's' gags are too few and what there are are not imaginative in the slightest and also not particularly funny on the most part, parts felt repetitive too. The story lacks energy and comes over as very routine, which further adds to the tired feel, and makes no attempt to do anything original with a pretty old-hat premise.

Found that only The Inspector and Two-Faced Harry stood out of the characters. The Commissioner has had more presence in other cartoons and Mark Skor is no Paul Frees. The comedy should have been sharper and more ironic, there was too much emphasis on The Inspector's bumbling which was not particularly inspired.

Altogether, average. 5/10
