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.

A Cartoon To Go Cuckoo Over
11 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an incredible cartoon, something so far out you could only see it in an animated film. In a nutshell, it's about the Pink Panther buying alarm clocks but not wanting them to really work because he'd rather sleep. However, he knows he has to get up for his job so he buys the best alarm he could ever get - a cuckoo clock. What makes this one so effective is the little cuckoo inside. He is determined to wake up his master, so every time the Panther tries to shut him up and go back to sleep, the cuckoo goes to greater lengths to wake him up.

The cuckoo bird yells louder, plays a loud trumpet, even becomes a one-man band, rigs trap doors so the Panther will fall and wake up.....he'll do anything to complete his job. He just simply does so many outlandish things you have to see this to believe it.

The wildest gag of them all is the ending, something you totally do not expect. This is one of the best Pink Panther cartoons I have been fortunate enough to see.
