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 first Pink Panther short and probably the best
5 September 2001 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This Academy Award-winning short was the first Pink Panther theatrical release (at least as a short subject) and is a winner on all counts. Hilarious, well animated, marvelous story and use of music-everything is wonderful. There wee other very good shorts in the series, but none of them even came close to equaling this first one. I've always felt sorry for the poor little guy in this cartoon! Most highly recommended.
