Storyline

The Pink Panther, walking inside a building, sees a little man painting a wall blue and thinks that pink would be more appropriate. So, the Pink Panther obtains a bucket of pink paint and begins painting the wall with his preferred color. The hot-tempered man doesn't at first realize that his work is being painted over by the panther, but when he does, he grabs a rifle and shoots at the pink cat. The Pink Panther pours his pink paint into the man's rifle, and with each shot that the man fires, gobs of pink paint splatter on the building, turning it entirely pink! And so, the Pink Panther graciously decides to become the building's new occupant. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Goofs

Two instances of inconsistency as the painter is blasting away at Pinky with the paint-filled shotgun; in both cases, a paint-splashed portion of the outside wall of the house does not correspond between close-up and wide-angle shots: the left front window is sprayed and then it is clean in the wide-angle shot (only the wall below the window is sprayed with the pink paint instead of the window, also), and then the upper right-hand corner of the roof is not sprayed in the wide-angle shot but then is shown to be painted in a close-up when Pinky points out the remaining "unpinked" blue-painted spot to the painter.

The first in a line of Pink Panther cartoons!
3 July 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is the first in a collection of Pink Panther cartoons, where the pointy nose man is painting a house entirely blue. However, the Pink Panther has something to say to that and slyly paints the colors over with pink paint. What results is a back and forth paint duel between man and panther.

There is not much of a plot in this cartoon, just a lot of painting around. However, there are plenty of laughs and some slapstick comedy you will get out of this cartoon short. The animation look kind of dated, but unique, and there is, like almost all of the other Pink Panther cartoons, no dialog - just sound effects and a funny sounding music soundtrack.

It's fun stuff for the entire family.
