At a building site, the Pink Panther finds a blueprint for the construction of a generic home and replaces it with a pink-colored plan for an ultra-modern house. When the little man on the building site rejects the Pink Panther's pink blueprint and continues his original project, the panther decides to construct his preferred house on the same site, using the man's materials. The accident-prone Pink Panther sneezes a swarm of nails in the direction of the little man's backside and unleashes an out-of-control power saw that splits the man's ladder in two. The Pink Panther dyes his pink plan blue and slips it in the man's pocket, and the man then appears to unwittingly build the house to the Pink Panther's design. The carpenter has the last laugh, however, when the whole "fancy" front section of the house tips forward and falls on the ground, revealing the plain cape-style house that the carpenter had initially been attempting to build.

Did You Know?


Hand-held circular saws turn counter-clockwise, so if a running saw was sitting on the ground with its blade-guard jammed in the open position, the saw would move BACKWARDS, not forwards as it is shown doing in this cartoon. See more »

Didn't Get Much Of A 'Buzz' From It
27 May 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This cartoon story turns into a competition to see how can build a better house: the Pink Panther or his rival, The Little White Man. At first, they have the same project site but each doesn't like the other guy's designs. The Man has blueprints for a standard house while the PP's plans call for some futuristic design.

Most of the story involves the PP playing havoc with the White Man's attempts to build the house. The Panther also gets effective assistance from a runaway buzz saw.

This was "okay," nothing super, and, sad to say, marred by the always-insult laugh track, something totally uncalled-for in a cartoon. We can decide when to laugh, thank you. I wound up playing most of this with the sound off, so as not be annoyed. However, I missed hearing the sound-effects.
