Storyline

In an Alpine community, a pointy-nosed, little man's incessant tuba-playing results in the entire community threatening to evict him. So, the man, accompanied by his dog, goes into the mountains to play the tuba in supposed seclusion. However, the tuba-playing disturbs the sleep of a tree-dwelling Pink Panther, who, unseen by the man, drops a potted plant, bubble gum, cement, and soap and water into the tuba, and the man, undaunted, persists in playing and blames his dog for these attempts to silence the tuba.

Cheap but not shabby
2 April 2002 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

At their best the Pink Panther cartoons have the appearance of the best contemporary magazine cartoons (I wish I knew the names of the artists whose style they're reminiscent of, but I don't), tastefully coloured in and brought to life - in this case, REALLY brought to life, not just brought to motion. A few things distinguish this from other Panthers: the cuddly Alpine scenery, the fact that tubas are (as everyone knows) intrinsically funny, and the visual humour, which is at least on occasion (like when the dog bites on the tuba's mouthpiece in an attempt to save the instrument and its owner from a waterfall) artfully realised. That short, stout, white antagonist of the Pink Panther dates back to the very first cartoon ("The Pink Phink", 1964), and is the source of whatever really good animation the DePatie-Freleng studios could still afford to include. Him and the dog.
