Storyline

A little, pointy-nosed playboy coming out of a nightclub does a good deed for the Pink Panther by pulling a nail out of the panther's foot, and the grateful panther becomes slave to the little man, assisting him to compel his shrewish wife to do all the chores at home, cleaning behind him as he drops his cigar ashes and beer cans on the floor. Each time the wife tries to retaliate against her inconsiderate husband, the playboy slob whistles for the Pink Panther to roar at her and frighten her into submission. Tables turn when the wife pulls a nail out of the Pink Panther's foot and the panther is now her slave and allows her to smash bottles on her playboy husband's head.

One Of My Pink Panther Favorites
24 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the best Pink Panther cartoon I've ever seen. It was extremely clever and funny. It probably wasn't appreciated as much for many wives in the theater, but us for us guys, this was great stuff.

Our usual little human guy takes a thorn out of one of the Pink Panther's hind paws and our hero is so grateful, that he can't thank him enough. He follows the man all the way home, even hiding in the trunk of his car, freaking out the man. However, upon arrival, his wife starts in on him. She and her mother are up waiting for the husband, who had been out at the nightclub, and they are giving to him, rolling pin and all! The Pink Panther comes to the rescue of his new-found idol and scares the women with a ferocious roar.

That sets up the main gag of the cartoon - the Panther making life all of sudden great for the guy. He no longer is henpecked. Thanks to the PP, who is there for him every time, he can now be the master of his house. The mother-in-law leaves and the man takes full advantage.

There are very funny gags with this.

The ending provides an ironic twist, the kind these cartoons like to have. Overall, this was just great.
