Storyline

While leisurely sitting on a park bench and eating a banana, the Pink Panther throws the banana peel on the ground and is instantly cited for littering. The diminutive trial judge orders the panther to clean all the town of Litterburg's refuse-filled streets. The Pink Panther gathers all the litter into one, huge pile, but is prohibited from setting the trash on fire, and when he tries to dispose of the garbage outside the town limits, a short, pointy-nosed forest ranger orders him to remove it. The panther attempts to rid himself of the trash pile by pouring it down a hole, but the hole is a geyser, which erupts the trash back onto the town's streets. Steamrollering it and forming it into a huge paper airplane with a dynamite fuse is equally ineffective as a mid-air explosion sends the trash raining back onto the town. The panther steamrollers the litter again and converts it to pop art pictures for profitable sale. He gives the proceeds to the town, which honors him in a celebration...

Always recycle

In the trash covered desert town of Littersburg, the Pink Panther is sitting on a park bench eating a banana. He throws the peel away but is arrested by a cop and charged with littering (even though a banana peel is biodegradable). His punishment is to clean up the whole town.

This task does manage pretty well, but he has to do it over and over because whatever method of disposal he uses always ends up in the litter raining back down over everything again.

In the end he flattens it all with a steamroller, cuts it all into squares, frames them and makes a fortune in selling it as modern art. He becomes the town hero and earns the key to the city. But there's a twist...
