Storyline

The Pink Panther and a short, pointy-nosed caveman are laboring to move a large, rectangular slab of rock across a prehistoric jungle. The Pink Panther realizes that the rock would be easier to move if it were round. So, he and the caveman chisel it into a sphere and roll it down a hill. It picks up speed and flattens the caveman repeatedly as it reaches hill bottom, rises on another hill, then re-descends, again and again. The Pink Panther and the caveman next have the idea of positioning another rectangular slab on a carriage and pulling it, and they invent a pair of wheels to put beneath the carriage. Then, when the panther and caveman envision the future for the wheel, including the Industrial Revolution, automobiles, urban blight, and pollution, they destroy the two wheels and go back to moving the slab by their original, clumsy pushing method.

A pretty entertaining cartoon short with Pink in dinosaur times.
24 September 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

Somehow the Pink Panther is taken back to the prehistoric times, where he helps the pointy-nosed caveman push a rock. When the task proves to be too difficult, the two devises different methods to transport the rock, from putting on wheels to pulling it with a vine. However, every attempt hilariously backfires, leaving you with some chuckles.

Not a lot of gags or action in this one - just a lot of rock pushing. You might get impatient, wondering when those two would push that dang rock and where are they hoping to push it to. But, it's still a pretty entertaining cartoon short.

Grade B-
