The Inspector and partner Deux-Deux must spend a night in the famous
art museum, the Louvre, because they suspect "The Blotch," a famous
criminal, to steal paintings. This criminal, like some of the others
earlier in this colorful series, is not human but someone or something
that can change shapes in a second. He can be a splash of water or a
human, almost like the villain in "Terminator 2."
The humor is the different methods the crook uses to steal the paintings underneath the noses of our dimwitted good guys, Clouseau and Deux-Deaux, who act clueless.
The artwork comes in two forms in this animated short: the usual colorful stuff and small reproductions of real-life art, such as a Rembrandt.
This isn't really that funny, not like the normal Pink Panther cartoons, but they still serve as entertainment and certainly are colorful to watch. It's on the DVD "The Pink Panther Classic Cartoon Collection, Vol. 6 - Inspector Cartoons."

This is an Inspector Clouseau short from Depatie-Freleng. There will be
This is a good, if (sorry, I can't help myself) a bit paint-by-numbers in its execution. "The Blotch" has threatened to steal all of the painting in the Louvre, so The Commissioner (who should know better) assigns Clouseau and Sgt. Deaux-Deaux, all two of them, to guard the entire building overnight. They might just as well have handed "The Blotch" a set of keys and backed up the truck for him.
The laughs come from "The Blotch", who successfully outwits our "heroes". Count the number of times Clouseau gets hit, shot and otherwise damaged through mistaken identity. Maybe that should be a drinking game.
The end of the short is rather cute, if a bit obvious and a bit of a groaner.
This short is available on DVD, most notably the first volume of "Inspector" shorts. It and the DVD are worth watching. Most recommended.
