Quick Draw McGraw mashed with German Expressionism

This is awesome, Merrill Markoe,former writer for David Letterman, took an old Quick Draw McGraw cartoon, and spliced it with parts of Peter Lorre's monologue from "M."

Fritz Lang is a master of Black and White, Shadow and Reflection, and Peter Lorre is one of the best creepy actors of all time! Here is a clip from "M", along with the parts that Merrill used:
