Storyline

The Pink Panther is in his apartment, gift-wrapping a basketball. The ball drops through the wrapping paper to the floor, bounces out a window, and knocks a pointy-nosed, little man in a lower-level apartment off of his balcony swimming pool diving board and down to the street, where the Pink Panther catches him. The Pink Panther chases the bouncing basketball into a zoo, where an ostrich mistakes the ball for an egg and fights the panther for possession of it. The ball bounces away and becomes the plaything of two seals, with the Pink Panther trying to intercept their tossing of the ball. The ball resumes its meandering and leads the Pink Panther on a chase into the wig section of a department store, then bounces near a volleyball court and falls in love with a volleyball- but balks at marriage and returns to the Pink Panther, who resumes his chase of the elusive, bouncing ball with a mind of its own.

Somehow manages to be surreal and banal at the same time
2 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

The Pink Panther chases a basketball with a mind of its own - literally, as it turns out: it catches a taxi, impersonates a mannequin head, falls in love with a volleyball, etc. Each strange turn of events comes across as just another desperate attempt to keep the cartoon going. If the basketball had bounced so as to LOOK as though it was obeying the laws of physics the surrealism might have had some charm and the contrivances might have had some zest ... hell, if the basketball had even had a minimal personality, the cartoon might have worked. The artwork is disappointing, too.
