The Buzz
12 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Pink Panther is relaxing in his rural home, watching TV and munching on fruit, when his program is interrupted with a bulletin.

"A notice of special interest to farmers: a fruit fly mutation has escaped from the United States Agricultural Research Laboratory. The fly is reported to be unusually strong and very destructive. Fruit farmers are warned to be on the lookout for this pest. It is particularly fond of apples."

The Panther clicks off the TV, and within seconds learns he has a big problem: that "pest" is in his home and has been outside. All the apples have been eaten and the fly quickly eats the apple the Panther is about to eat! He's like the termite in the recent episode "Pink Pest Control."

This little buzzer is brutal. The Panther does everything he can to catch him but, like the termite, it's easier said that done. This fly is so strong that the PP has to resort to learning karate to see if he can defeat it. Earlier, the fly demonstrated its strength by dropping a 200-pound weight on the panther!

Watching this, you wonder if it is even possible to beat this "Super Fly."

The ending is a bit bizarre...but overall, this is a solid Pink Panther effort.
