** To go with the "Red Skeleton" mentioned above, the killer's confession of "I dood it" was a catch phrase from one of Skelton's comedy routines.

'''''Who Killed Who?''''' is one of the early TexAveryMGMCartoons, created in [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1943]]. The short is a pastiche of whodunit cases.

* MaleGaze: PlayedForLaughs--a flashlight spot scans a wall full of hanging pictures, including one of [[GoingFurASwim a scantily clad woman with a fur coat]], but when the spot returns to the picture, the woman is covered up.
* MediumAwareness: The victim is reading a book called "Who Killed Who? [[LogicBomb (From the cartoon of the same name)]]". This is also how he learns of his impending murder.
* ObviouslyEvil: As a gag, when the detective pushes a button marked 'RING BELL FOR SUSPECTS', the butler, maid, and chauffeur come in--and they all look rather sinister. It then turns out that they're actually pretty cheerful.

* RogerRabbitEffect: Sort of--the live-action and the animated characters aren't seen together, but some clever cutting [[spoiler:in the ending]] makes it look like this.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: The detective. Though first he uses a small pitch-pipe to find the correct octave.
* ShamefulShrinking: More like "Fearful Shrinking" as it happens to the detective upon encountering a ghost.
* ShoutOut: The killer's gun final three shots at the victim replicate the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NBC_chimes NBC Chimes]].
* ShowSomeLeg: The detective resorts to this to catch the killer.
* SpinningClockHands: When the victim receives a message that he is going to die at midnight, he looks terrified at the cuckoo clock; there's still a few hours left, but then the hands suddenly spin all the way to midnight.
* StealTheSurroundings: After the ExtendedDisarming sequence, the detective says they'll try it again. He turns out the lights, and when they come back on ''everything'' in the room (including the bookcases and pictures on the wall) is gone.
* SurpriseSantaEncounter: Western UrExample: the detective sees a door marked "Do Not Open Until Xmas". Scoffing, he opens it, and runs smack into a ''very'' irritated Santa.

* ThroughAFaceFullOfFur: A variant--the blushing ghost. How is that even possible?
* WrapAround: The detective drops a vase into a pit in the floor; after a while, it falls on his head from above. Later on, he himself falls into a pit on the ground floor and, after a lot of noise, comes crashing down the stairs that lead to the upper floors.

* GenreRoulette: And how. The narrator sets this up to be a 'RippedFromTheHeadlines' true crime story, the opening makes it looks like a HauntedHouse movie while the cast of characters is out of AgathaChristie.
