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...

The world's solution to littering.
27 August 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

The Pink Panther was sitting on a park bench eating a banana and litters the peel. A police officer witnesses it and orders him to clean up the entire town's littering. So, the panther does this humongous chore in gathering up all the trash and finds the most difficult time in disposing them. From unknowingly place the litter in a geyser to steamrolling them, the panther has the most unusual way of getting rid of the trash, making you eager to know how all this will be resolved. Then, he finds the most artistic and imaginative idea!

It was interesting seeing the panther clean up the roads, making you wish the littering in the streets of our cities are being cleaned up as well. Plenty of laughs here, especially the panther interactions with the pointy-nosed officer. A great one here!
