Storyline

The Pink Panther, walking inside a building, sees a little man painting a wall blue and thinks that pink would be more appropriate. So, the Pink Panther obtains a bucket of pink paint and begins painting the wall with his preferred color. The hot-tempered man doesn't at first realize that his work is being painted over by the panther, but when he does, he grabs a rifle and shoots at the pink cat. The Pink Panther pours his pink paint into the man's rifle, and with each shot that the man fires, gobs of pink paint splatter on the building, turning it entirely pink! And so, the Pink Panther graciously decides to become the building's new occupant. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

The first 'Pink Panther' cartoon
26 March 2009 | by Atreyu_IISee all my reviews

The oldest of the 'Pink Panther' cartoons is a good start. Although simple as it may be, it is full of funny gags, creativity, originality and imagination.

The story focus in only 2 characters: the Pink Panther and a painter (who is nothing less than 'The Little White Man', a familiar character in many of these cartoons). During the whole cartoon, the painter wants a house to be painted blue. Pinky, of course, wants it to be painted pink and always manages to ruin the blue paint (in all imaginable ways), much for the painter's anger.

The funniest of all is that the painter doesn't realize until late in the cartoon that Pinky is causing all the problems. During good part of the cartoon, he gets mad because he thinks that the blue paint he is using is something of terrible quality.

A funny classic cartoon and quite a worthy one in any collection of 'The Pink Panther' classics.
