A house painter can't understand why everything he paints blue turns pink. Little does he guess that the Pink Panther is repainting all his work.

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>

The Start Of Something Good
15 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is clever right from the opening credits and, as I learned here at IMDb, was the first theatrical Pink Panther cartoon, and it won an Åcademy Award!

To be honest, I didn't laugh out loud at anything in here, but I throughly enjoyed this probably smiled throughout most of it. To me, the inventiveness of this cartoon was the attraction. How many interesting and humorous ways can someone paint over what another person has just painted? Well, this cartoon will show you. I liked the idea of no background but only the object being painted drawn in the cartoon. It made for some unique animation.

This set the tone for many enjoyable Pink Panther cartoons to follow, ones in which there is no dialog but the visuals so well done that none are required.
