Storyline

The Pink Panther is an amateur violinist who wants to play in the orchestra at a concert but is forcefully removed from the concert hall. The sly panther sneaks into the hall and secrets himself in the orchestra. A diminutive, short-tempered conductor tries to direct the orchestra in performing Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, but the Pink Panther keeps injecting his own theme into the music, first with his violin, then with a horn and a trumpet, enraging the conductor.

Maestro Panther!
17 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

The Pink Panther was practicing the Pink Panther theme on his violin and attempts to perform with the symphony at the concert hall, only to be thrown out. However, he sneaks back in and interrupts the orchestra's rendition of Beethoven's Symphony Number Five with the panther theme, angering the pointy-nosed and short-tempered conductor.

There are plenty of laugh-out-loud humor, from a violin bow going off like a shotgun to the panther switching the conductor's baton with a rocket. The panther's attempts to inject his theme into the music are hilarious and the conductor's reactions are just classic. There's even a special cameo at the end of the cartoon short. One of the funniest Pink Panther cartoons I've seen!
