Episode Chronology
"The Slap"
"The Fury"

"The Detective"[1] is the thirty-sixth episode of Season 4 of The Amazing World of Gumball. It is the 152nd episode overall.


When Daisy goes missing, Anais suspects Gumball and Darwin.


The episode begins with nursery music. It shows Anais' stuffed toys, Darwin's shoes, and a picture of Gumball and Darwin that has been broken. As Anais explains the crime scene, the music slowly becomes lower and off key, and she investigates the room for clues. The bedroom was trashed because of Gumball And Darwin. She then samples the bowl of spilled milk on the floor, and says there was a lot of sugar in the milk. It cuts to a scene of Gumball and Darwin eating bowls of cereal, causing them to have a sugar rush. She concludes that Daisy was caught between the sugar rush, and something bad happened to her. So Gumball And Darwin made it look like a robbery by trashing the bedroom. She wasn't 100% sure if that was the case, so she called for Richard and asked him if he knew anything. Richard said he heard a strange noise in the bathroom and Gumball and Darwin exited the house in a panic. She used what Richard said to further investigate the crime scene. She then investigates the bathroom for more clues. After investigating the bathroom, her next step was to find Gumball. She didn't know where he was, but she ended up finding Darwin, who was at the trashcan. Darwin seen Anais and quickly ran to the shed in the backyard. Anais followed him to the shed and commanded him to open the door. Darwin said he didn't have to unless she had a warrant. Anais showed him a "warrant", that she wrote out on a notepad, and Darwin gives her credit for writing it well. Anais then kicks in the door to the shed and angrily asks Darwin where they put Daisy. Darwin pretends he doesn't know what she's talking about. Anais said she will reduce his timeout time if Darwin told her where she is.
