Storyline

The Pink Panther, seeking nightly shelter from a storm, comes upon a Western frontier ghost town called Dead Dog, and the one hotel in the town is haunted. While trying to stay the night at the Dead Dog Hotel, the panther is accosted by a two-eyed, chair-covering sheet, which is an unfriendly ghost. A moving skeleton crawls into the Pink Panther's bed and scares the panther, who does battle against ghost and skeleton by hitting both with a stick. The ghost dons a six-gun belt and pursues the panther into a wine cellar, where the panther pickles the ghost in a wine keg. The drunken ghost is then inflated like a balloon by the Pink Panther and burst, becoming a group of little specters that join the skeleton in pursuing the Pink Panther. The resulting noise prompts the town sheriff to arrest the Pink Panther and his supernatural foes- until sunrise causes ghosts, skeleton, sheriff, and whole town to vanish.

That's Why They Call It A 'Ghost Town'
5 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the previous Pink Panther cartoon, the PP's stuck up in the mountains with nine feet of snow burying him in his cabin. Now he's in the desert in a place called "Dead Dog," which appears to be out in the middle of nowhere. There is a hotel, jail and saloon, but the sign says "Population: 0." Oddly, it's pouring rain. The PP goes into the hotel for shelter.

"Odd" is an apt word for this cartoon. Things never appear as they seem

  • at least at the end, after the PP, a ghost and a skeleton all do


battle during the night.

This was not a laugh-out-loud funny cartoon but still humorous and a lot of fun to watch. The eerie ghost music was entertaining, too. The ending is definitely a surprise.
