Definitely some lively cartooning going on here with that checkerboard outfit lending itself well to all the shenanigans. The sound effects lettering is somewhat inspired as well.

Inspector Dayton-Rafael Astarita-1943
This guy was good. Rafael Astarita was a Brooklyn-born veteran of the Eisner-Iger shop when he was on staff at Fiction House as seen here. He later became Art Director at Standard Comics and, after the comics purge, started a successful ad art agency.
