Storyline

The Pink Panther secrets himself inside Gamble's Department Store, so that after closing time, he can occupy the warm building for a night. But when a diminutive, pointy-nosed janitor arrives, the panther must go back into hiding. He conceals himself inside the mouth of a tiger-skin rug. When the janitor sweeps floor litter into the mouth of the rug, the Pink Panther ejects the litter and causes the janitor to think that the rug is alive. The janitor obtains a rifle and shoots the rug after the Pink Panther has crawled out of it. When the janitor spots cat prints on an escalator and is stealthily tapped on the back by the Pink Panther, he thinks the tiger-skin rug is responsible and goes back to fire more shots into it. The Pink Panther tries some of the store's merchandise, including a miniature rocket car, a washing machine, an iron, and, finally, a convertible chair, which starts biting like a dog and attacks the janitor.

Thoroughly entertaining, though the title is a head-scratcher
3 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Pink Panther is an iconic character, and there is much charm and fun to be had in his cartoons. While not one of his absolute masterpieces, We Give Pink Stamps is thoroughly entertaining in all respects. I do agree though about the title, even as a kid I found it perplexing and still don't get the significance of it. The animation is simple but also stylish and the colours are pretty. The main theme to The Pink Panther is one of the most timeless themes for any animated show or character, and the music for We Give Pink Stamps is every bit as catchy. The story like the animation is simple but not simplistic, what matters more is that there is never a dull moment and sustains the running time nicely. The sight gags are imaginative and funny, Pinky is cool, sweet and funny(but never mean-spirited) in his craftiness, and the janitor takes the butt of Pinky's jokes memorably. In conclusion, the title is curious but We Give Pink Stamps makes for great entertainment. 9/10 Bethany Cox
