Storyline

The diminutive owner of a diner situated next to a construction site is inundated with lunchtime customers and hires the Pink Panther as a short-order cook. But the accident-prone panther causes nothing but trouble for the little diner owner. A flipped pizza sticks to the kitchen ceiling, and when the Pink Panther saws a hole through the ceiling and the pizza, with a slab of ceiling wood beneath, falls onto the grill, the little diner owner hurries to bring the pizza to a burly, impatient customer, who bites into a truly wooden-crust pizza, then punishes the little man with a pie in the face. The same customer later requests on two separate occasions a cake and blueberry pie. The Pink Panther catapults the cake into the customer's face, and a fan blows the blueberry topping of the pie to the same unfortunate place. The irate customer puts a R.I.P. wreath at the door of the diner and chases panther and little owner into the horizon. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Adventures At Joe's Diner
17 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Little White Man runs "Joe's Diner," situated right next to a construction site, so he gets busy at lunch time. Actually, "swamped" is more like it and he's forced to put a "help wanted" sign out front. You know who applies, don't you?

Well, now our Pink Panther is a cook at the diner and most of the story then revolves around some big, burly foreman-type worker not exactly getting his order done correctly at the diner and the poor owner suffering the consequences. This is a recurring theme in the Pink Panther cartoons: others getting in trouble for things the PP does.

It is funny, but not laugh-out-loud variety, more of the "amusing" kind of cartoon. In other words: okay, but nothing special.
