Storyline

In South Africa, a talking Pink Panther is the owner of a diamond mine and has unearthed a large gem. He puts it in his safe, which has a combination lock that functions like a telephone dial, and a man tunnels into the safe and filches the jewel. The Pink Panther suspects gophers of perpetrating the theft, but a dastardly pair of rival miners, operating the neighboring DeBoors mine, have taken the diamond and claim it and the diamond-yielding territory as their own. The pair of men ineptly try to eliminate the panther, and the debonaire Pink Panther defeats them, obtaining an even larger diamond and removing it from the DeBoors camp.

Rolling diamonds gather no moss
16 October 2005 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

In this cartoon, the Pink Panther has his own diamond mine in South Africa. As he locks a huge gem in his vault a man from an opposing mine (called Deboors) tunnels through and nicks it. This sets off a chain of events in which Pinky plays tricks and gets revenge on the Deboors mine, while making off with their stash of diamonds.

It is rather funny how Pinky dupes the men into shooting each other and reversing the traps they have set for him back against them, keeping his cool the entire time. But why do the shotguns only cover them with black ash instead of killing them. A silly message to give to the kiddies. I'm all for gunplay in cartoons but as long as they are semi-realistic. If the Deboors miners got blown to bits and were whole in the next scene it would be a bit better.

That silly moan aside, it's a very funny cartoon and features one of the rare occasions when Pinky actually speaks.
