Storyline

The Pink Panther buys a compact, multi-gadgeted car, spray-paints it pink, and goes for a drive with it. The car has a mind of its own and becomes determined to out-speed an elderly lady away from an intersection so that she gags on the pink car's exhaust. The lady reveals herself to be Granny Flash, senior citizens' drag racing champion! She challenges the panther to a race - and wins! The Pink Panther's car is thrown off of a cliff and parachutes into the car lot were he bought the troublesome vehicle. The panther opts to dispense with the car and obtain a refund.

Did You Know?

Goofs

After Pinky meets Granny and they race the first time, she turns on the "supersonic rockets" and roars off, leaving Pinky and his car covered with soot. A few seconds later, Pinky and his car zoom away after Granny, shaking off the soot and leaving it in a pile on the road. But then the car is next shown in its original BLUE color as it whizzes off down the windy road and disappears around the bend --- evidently somebody in the art department momentarily forgot that Pinky had re-painted the car pink.

I Wish They Would Have Kept Going!
26 May 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Our pink hero is searching for used cars in a lot when he discovers a James Bond-type Aston Martin vehicle with all the gadgets. This little sports car intrigues and impresses him, so he buys it.

As in other Pink Panther cartoons, an inanimate object turns to be human-like, so when our guy brings his new car back home and begins to spray paint the front of it pink, the car balks! It wants no part of this spray-paint job!

The car - not the Panther - winds up in a drag race against an old lady, who turns out to be "Granny Flash: senior citizens drag champion."

This was hilarious, thanks to Granny, and I hated to see it end so abruptly. They could have continued this for another full cartoon with the just race between the two cars.
