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

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 amiable if somewhat limited cartoon character of "The Pink Panther" was introduced in the animated opening credits of Blake Edwards' 1964 classic caper comedy of the same name; in the film proper, it was the nickname taken by cat burglar David Niven but the eventual franchise revolved around the antics of his inept nemesis Inspector Clouseau (which would soon become Peter Sellers' signature role).
In the concurrent cartoon series (which I used to watch as a kid on local TV and have subsequently acquired on DVD), the silent rosy feline took centre stage, albeit usually employed in more mundane occupations, like a house painter as in this very first instance – even if it was still pitted against a bungling, moustached albino who was Clouseau in all but name. The latter wants to paint the house in question blue and the protagonist, inevitably, wants it painted pink. The ensuing confrontation is certainly pleasant if hardly providing outstanding entertainment value, but it was enough for the short under review to cop an Academy Award.
