Storyline

The Pink Panther, walking inside a building, sees a little man painting a wall blue and thinks that pink would be more appropriate. So, the Pink Panther obtains a bucket of pink paint and begins painting the wall with his preferred color. The hot-tempered man doesn't at first realize that his work is being painted over by the panther, but when he does, he grabs a rifle and shoots at the pink cat. The Pink Panther pours his pink paint into the man's rifle, and with each shot that the man fires, gobs of pink paint splatter on the building, turning it entirely pink! And so, the Pink Panther graciously decides to become the building's new occupant. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

One of the best
2 January 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'The Pink Phink' is probably the best Pink Panther short. It is also the first one and it won on Oscar. In a building the pink panther sees a man paint everything blue. The pink panther liked pink more so he changes everything to that color. Where other Pink Panther movies become dull when it is the same joke over and over again this one stays funny until the end. The simple animation makes it even funnier.
