This Cartoon Needed Some Doctoring, 2 May 2007
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

This cartoon doesn't exactly make hospitals look good. The opening scene is funny, even if the gag was predictable. The poor Panther has to run to the hospital himself to get service!

Once there, we see the Pink Panther and a sadistic old man in the bed next to him. Actually, the old man was the funniest part of this sub-par Pink Panther cartoon.

The jokes weren't really that good but the wheezing, sadistic laugh by the guy who seemed to delight in the Panther's problems was funny.

We also had the ironic twist at the end, which the Panther cartoons provide every now in then. Overall, this just didn't have the humor and the jokes you could see coming a mile away. It just wasn't up to the high standards of the Pink Panther.
