Storyline

The next-door neighbor neglects to return the Pink Panther's lawn mower, an oversight the sinister off-screen narrator is only too happy to point out to the peaceful feline suburbanite. The insinuating voice pours poison into the neighbor's ear as well, and soon the two home owners are feuding over some hedge clippers and a tree limb hanging over the property line. Finally, the Pink Panther builds a brick wall to separate himself from his one-time friend, an act the neighbor considers to be a declaration of war. Written by J. Spurlin

Did You Know?

Goofs

The heavy-artillery implements that Pinky uses are obviously vintage weapons that lack any sort of modern-day automatic-loading/remote-firing mechanisms, so they would have to be operated manually; the Panther would not be able to continuously fire the swivel-gun and the tank-cannon at the same time, the way he does in the movie.

Quotes

Invisible Devil's voice: That may look like a wall to you, but it's really a fort! How do you know what kinds of weapons he's going to put behind that fort? Harry... nobody likes war, but you've gotta defend yourself...

The Devil Made Them Do It
23 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

Normally, I hate it when they have some annoying narrator talking to the Pink Panther. Thankfully, it doesn't happen frequently. However, in this one, it's okay because it's Paul Frees, not a name you probably would not know but certainly a familiar voice. It seems like I heard Frees' voice many times from the '50s through the '70s. The gentleman is still alive- and-kicking, too, in his mid '80s as I write this.

As another reviewer points out here, the "voice" is very devil-like in his message, stirring up neighbor against neighbor, whispering remarks in both the Panther's ear and his neighbor's, getting the two to square off against each other, all for selfish reasons.

There's lots of truth to this cartoon. We may not hear audible voices, but you know these kind of bad thoughts enter our heads from time to time, and some of them probably are from Satan. It's best to know where they come from, and ignore them!

The last minute of this cartoon is really hilarious as this neighborly feud escalates into literally an all-out war. The final message, delivered by the devil himself, will have you laughing right out loud.
