Storyline

The Pink Panther secrets himself inside Gamble's Department Store, so that after closing time, he can occupy the warm building for a night. But when a diminutive, pointy-nosed janitor arrives, the panther must go back into hiding. He conceals himself inside the mouth of a tiger-skin rug. When the janitor sweeps floor litter into the mouth of the rug, the Pink Panther ejects the litter and causes the janitor to think that the rug is alive. The janitor obtains a rifle and shoots the rug after the Pink Panther has crawled out of it. When the janitor spots cat prints on an escalator and is stealthily tapped on the back by the Pink Panther, he thinks the tiger-skin rug is responsible and goes back to fire more shots into it. The Pink Panther tries some of the store's merchandise, including a miniature rocket car, a washing machine, an iron, and, finally, a convertible chair, which starts biting like a dog and attacks the janitor.

The last time we saw the Pink Panther was in Pink Pajamas, in which he was desperate for a safe, warm place to get his head down. Nothing has changed as in this cartoon he stows away in Gamble's department store for a cozy night.

But the night janitor is suspicious of their uninvited guest and ends up being the butt of old Pinky's usual jokes and tricks. It's pretty funny stuff as both of them race from department to department trying out avoid and outwit each other.

The Pink Panther is very cool and very cute and this is one funny cartoon. But can someone explain the title to me?
