A diminutive, pointy-nosed naturalist goes to a national park to photograph the flora and fauna and refuses to donate a small sum of money to a worthy cause: the welfare of the park's resident Pink Panther. The naturalist kicks the Pink Panther's donation box away and provokes the panther into sabotaging his photographic efforts. The Pink Panther secrets himself in a bush and won't keep the bush still for the photographer to take a desired picture. The panther next commandeers the controls to a wooden bridge and sends the naturalist into a river. He then swallows the little man's flashcubes and lights up every time he hiccups; so, when he runs into the little naturalist's dark-room-hut and hiccups, he ruins the pictures that the man is trying to develop. Next, he sticks his hand, eye, and teeth in all of the little man's pictures. But the little man avenges himself upon the panther by blasting the pink cat with a rifle disguised as a camera.

Did You Know?


The last time that Pinky rotates the bridge, he only turns it around halfway, and stops the bridge so that it's pointing parallel to the stream, causing the photographer's car to plunge off the end of the bridge and into the water. But the car comes out of the wrong end of the bridge that time - since Pinky rotated the bridge clockwise, the car should have come out of the right end of the bridge, not the left end. See more »

Pink Panther in photography
15 September 2007 | by (The world of artists) – See all my reviews

"Smile Pretty, Say Pink" is a typical Pink Panther's classic cartoon with all the ingredients which makes these cartoons terrific: very entertaining, great fun and classic humor. Besides, the designs and backgrounds are simple, but quite good and the comical music is typically Pink Panther.

The story, as usual, is very funny: after a naturalist (who happens to be a cheapskate) kicks the Pink Panther's donation box, the revenge of the Pink Panther is synonym of hilarious moments to makes us laugh and laugh...

Whenever the naturalist tries to take a picture, the Pink Panther appears secretly in the picture, but the little man doesn't notice this. Pinky does this so many times that drives the little guy crazy.

It's also funny how, by commanding a wooden bridge, the Pink Panther makes the naturalist always go to the wrong way and then sends him to the river.

But the most hilarious part of this short is when the Pink Panther swallows the flashbulbs from the little dude, thinking they were eggs. The effect is bombastic: Pinky lights up whenever he hiccups, scaring everything away and ruining (once again) the naturalist's pictures. Brother, that is hysterical! The ending is funny, but my least favorite part of this short.

Overall, one of the funniest Pink Panther's cartoons and one of my personal favorites.
