Storyline

Another battle of the paintbrush between the Pink Panther and a diminutive painter, who this time is Leonardo Da Vinci, painting his masterpiece, the Mona Lisa. The little Da Vinci paints a pouting mouth on the Mona Lisa, but the Pink Panther decides to covertly replace the pout with a smile. When the smile wins the appreciation of an art patron, Da Vinci is enraged and repaints the pout. The Pink Panther repeatedly changes the pout to a smile while the little painter is not looking, and ultimately it is the Pink Panther's version of the Mona Lisa that hangs in the Louvre.

How The 'Mona Lisa' Came To Be
22 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We are at the home of the great Italian artist Leonardo Da Vinci. He is trying to put just the write smile on Mona Lisa's portrait. We see several funny options. When he's happy with the final results, he literally bounds away in joy.

Meanwhile, the Pink Panther walks by his studio, spots the painting through the window and has the nerve to walk in and change the smile!

That's the one-joke story for this cartoon: Leonard and the Panther keep going back-and- forth changing the smile, expect Da Vinci doesn't know how his painting keeps changing. The Panther uses a few clever ways to change the smile each time without being detected. Overall, however, this wasn't all that humorous because the joke wore thin about halfway through. However, added attraction here were the great drawings on the Italian village, the houses and the countryside. We also got a history lesson about the Leaning Tower of Pisa!
