Storyline

As if it weren't hard enough for the Pink Panther to catch sleep, a mosquito proves hell-bent to keep him awake. However often the panther swats and after countless miss-hits literally kicks it out his porch, the buzzing bug gets back and makes a noisy nuisance of itself, over and over, till the whole Pink house looks like a war scene, then makes its final move...

Pinky vs, a fly
27 March 2009 | by (The world of artists) – See all my reviews

The 10th 'Pink Panther' cartoon is, once again, original, imaginative, creative and full of classic humor.

The basic idea is familiar: Pinky wants to sleep. After all, it's probably late and he is tired. But his sleep is disturbed by a very stubborn fly. This fly is constantly bugging him and every time he kicks the fly off the house and takes measures against that, the fly always manages to find a way to get in and keep tormenting the panther.

The fly is incredibly annoying, but ironically the insect makes some of the funniest gags here. For example, whenever the fly is expelled from the house and knocks on the door or window, the Pink Panther's laughters are simply delightful and hilarious to hear!

As a final judgment, I can say that this is one of the great Pink Panther's cartoons and one that belongs to the group of classics.
