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.

Poor Dog Pays For All The 'Oompas'
16 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I guess this takes place somewhere back in time in Germany or thereabouts. The poor Little Man White man is playing his tuba with his little dachshund nearby wagging his tail. Suddenly, there is a knock on the door and a man is delivering a sealed official note saying "Warning! One more 'oompa' out of you and you will be evicted from these premises. Signed by everybody."

He takes his little Volkswagen up to the mountain where he play without disturbing anyone, but the dumb dog howls with each note, waking up the Pink Panther. In this episode, the PP lives high up inside a tree trunk, complete with bed, dresser, rug and plants.

As the case every time a dog is in one of these cartoons, the poor, loyal mutt gets blamed for everything bad the Panther does to the Little Man.

The humor in this animated short is very inventive, with clever material involving a pea shooter, a bubble-gum bubble, a huge magnet and then finally just soap-and-bubbles which was the best gag of them all.

Also, the looks on the dog's face are priceless. This cartoon would have been better, of course, without an insulting laugh track, but it was still worth a least a "9."
