From Cancelled Movies Wiki

Based on novel by Felix Salten (who was also the author of Bambi, A Life in the Woods) about a detective who turns into a dog. The dog detective in "Inspector Bones" was a direct parody of Basil Rathbone's role in the Sherlock Holmes films, which were very popular in the 1940s. Inspector Bones and Dr. Beagle are pitted against either Professor Mongrel ("The Mad Dog of London") or Sir Cyril Sealyham. The story features many Tex Avery-style self-referential jokes, and many who see them now think the project was an odd one for Disney of the early 1940s.
