Storyline

This cartoon consists of a series of bizarre black-out gags with the Pink Panther. In one, he is a painter who finds that his paint bucket is dry and screws a hole in the scaffolding above and through the bottom of the bucket belonging to the painter on the next level, whose paint pours into the panther's bucket. Unbeknownst to the panther, a painter underneath him has the same idea! In another gag, the Pink Panther is relaxing on what appears to be a beach, but he sinks into the sand and falls into what is revealed to be the bottom of an hourglass. In yet another gag, the Pink Panther folds a backdrop into a finger-sized square and eats it, and the backdrop springs back to full size inside the panther's stomach! Another gag involves the Pink Panther attempting to demolish a condemned building, but the wrecking ball crumbles to pieces after striking the building, as does the panther, his vehicle, the building, and the whole scene itself! A recurring gag has the panther on a lawnmower.... Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

This is just one short bit after another-just a series of quick blackouts
25 August 2006 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is a very difficult short to describe, because there isn't a plot here and there isn't a story-line as such. It's just a bunch of short comedic sequences (the term generally used to describe them is "blackouts", which is where they got the title for the short) which in most cases share only one unifying factor, namely the Pink Panther. There is a running gag with a handful of the shorts centered on the Pink Panther and a lawnmower. It's a very funny cartoon which benefits from the fact that the main character rarely speaks. The gags are often obvious, but they still work, for the most part, because the timing on the short is very good.

This short is available on the Pink Panther Cartoon Collection recently released in a five disc DVD box set and is well worth seeing. The set itself has a very nice design to it and the shorts themselves generally look very nice. Recommended.
