Storyline

The Pink Panther is admitted to hospital after he falls on the street by slipping on his own banana peel. He finds that he has been given a liquid diet, while the man in the next bed is provided a banquet. So, the panther switches medical charts with his neighbor. The hefty food is transferred to him, but he is also rushed to abdominal surgery as per the chart he now has! Having survived the operation, the Pink Panther, in his recovery bed, is taunted by his laughing roommate as he is subjected to needles, to a harrowing blood pressure reading by an inattentive nurse, and to a fall that results in bandaging from head to toe. When he is finally released from the hospital, the panther trips on the hospital's steps and is readmitted with a broken leg! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

The poor suffering panther!
16 July 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

The Pink Panther slips on his own banana pill and is admitted to a hospital, where he is roommates with this jerk of a man who gratifies in seeing the panther suffer through injections, surgery and injuries. I thought it was pretty funny that the panther got to eat the man's big meals and toy with the controls of his bed, but, I can't believe that the man got the last laugh by hitting the panther's injured leg with his cane.

Overall, not a very funny Pink Panther cartoon and one that saw the panther get the bad end of just about everything. Actually, it's one of the worst panther cartoons I've seen.

Grade D--
