The WBs: I was considering re-deployment or transferring ownership on the detectives, as circumstances are unfortunately preventing the maintenance I should be providing. Archiving is the best option, based on the tone of the DNF logs and dwindling interest in caches in the "unknown" category that are not challenge caches. Thanks for playing!

Geocache Description:

Quick p&g at an appropriate location.

From the Disney wikia page:
Eddie Valiant and his brother Theodore "Teddy" Valiant were sons of a circus clown (shown by the pictures on their desk in the film), who joined the police force, they graduated from the LAPD in 1925. They eventually started their own private investigation service, Valiant & Valiant, in 1934, working largely on Toon cases, such as the kidnapping of Donald Duck's nephews in 1937 or clearing Goofy of accusations of espionage in 1940, both seen as newspaper clippings in Valiant's office. However, when Teddy was killed by then the unknown Toon form of Judge Doom in 1942, Eddie turned to the bottle, and Valiant disappeared from the public eye. This is also the explanation of why Eddie shows dislike towards Toons.

From wikipedia:
In 1947, R.K. Maroon of Maroon Cartoons paid Valiant to photograph Jessica Rabbit, Roger's wife, quite literally "playing pattycake" with Marvin Acme, owner of Toontown and founder of the Acme Corporation. When Acme is murdered and Roger becomes the prime suspect of the case, Valiant teams up with Roger to find the killer, and soon finds not only Acme's murderer, but the murderer of R.K. Maroon, and his own brother. After defeating Doom at Acme Warehouse, Eddie finally avenged his brother's death and abandoned his prejudice against toons.

Eddie Valiant was portrayed in the 1988 film “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” by Bob Hoskins. Judge Doom was played by Christopher Lloyd, who also played “Doc” Emmett Brown in the “Back to the Future” films.
