Storyline

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.

Goofs

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 »

I don't smile in pictures
13 January 2006 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

A photographer goes to Pinkstone National Park to take pictures of pretty scenery. But when he fails to donate any amount of money to the donations box at the entrance, the Pink Panther feels obliged to make his trip hell.

Again it's a thin set-up for pranks and games of outsmarting each other, but Pinky does play enough clever tricks (like the one with the revolving bridge) on the photographer to make it worthwhile. The ending is predictable and some of it is uninspired but it's overall an above average Pink Panther cartoon. I still don't understand why Pinky swallowed that box full of flash bulbs. Did he think they were marshmallows or something?
