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

The Pink Panther character, created for the animated opening credits of The Pink Panther (1963), was so popular that this short was produced as a starring vehicle for the character, and marked the beginning of a series of animated Pink Panther short films at a rate of one a month. See more »
When the bucket of pink paint falls on the man's head, his upper body becomes completely covered in pink, yet a moment later as he continues to chase Pinky out of the house with the shotgun, his upper body is clean and white again. See more »
The Pink Panther is one of animation's most iconic characters. Pink Phink was the cartoon that introduced audiences to him, and to this today it is one of the best Pink Panther cartoons ever made. The animation is simple but the colours are very pretty and the backgrounds don't look cheap. The music is very catchy, the main theme sticks in your head and in an infectious way rather than an annoying way. The jazzy orchestration is equally good. As well as well-animated and scored, Pink Phink is very funny. The story like the animation is simple but never to the point that it is predictable or dull. The gags are very creative and entertaining, never feeling repetitive. True, you do get the basic idea of what to expect with the other gags from the first gag, but each gag is dealt with in a fresh way so that is in no way a bad thing. Pink Panther himself is very cool and proof that you can be funny without having to say anything.
All in all, the introductory Pink Panther cartoon is still one of his best. 10/10 Bethany Cox
