Storyline

The Pink Panther is chronically late for work due to over sleeping. So, he buys a cuckoo clock in hope that the cuckoo's chirps will wake him in ample time each morning. The cuckoo does exactly this, but the panther is so irate at being jolted awake that he tries to silence the cuckoo so that he can go back to sleep.

"In The Pink Of The Night", what can I say? One of my favorite Pink Panther's cartoons! Like most of Pink Panther's animated classics, this one is highly entertaining, great fun, hilarious and very well made.

The Pink Panther is an almost 100% silent character, but that doesn't stop him from being a very funny character (a bit like Charlie Chaplin and Mr. Bean).

The artwork here is simple yet pretty good, like in most of Pink Panther's classics.

The story is pure fun and silly humor, which makes it so pleasant to watch: the Pink Panther wakes up late and does everything in a hurry because he's already late for work. He leaves his house running, but loses the train precisely in the last second. Angry, he decides to buy a cuckoo clock to avoid more oversleeping.

That's when the whole fun starts: the cuckoo clock works out very well in fact, but the Panther gets so irritated for being awake that he decides to silent the cuckoo in every ways. But the cuckoo is very persistent, so he never gives up. He does everything to wake up his new master. Everything. The craziest and most hilarious things. The more the Pink Panther tries to silent him, the more the cuckoo insists.

This is pure classic humor! A real scream, I'd say. A very enjoyable Pink Panther animated short full of comic gags.
