The Most Incredible And Funny Fly I've Ever Seen, And The Best Sound
22 May 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

The beginning of this Pink Panther cartoon certainly was different. Inserted in the animation were real-life, black-and-white pictures of various action scenes on an animated television set. We see a sleepy-eyed Panther with his remote control changing channels. (I don't even remember having remote-controls back in the mid '60s!). On the floor is a bunch of junk food (with potato chips misspelled as "potatoe.")

Anyway, the idea is the Panther is exhausted and wants some sleep. He goes to bed, begins to sleep but his loud snoring wakes himself up. Then, the big gag of the cartoon, after going back asleep again, a buzzing fly wakes him up and torments him.

This fly is awesome! After being booted out of house, he knocks on the door and gets back in! Later, he finds another clever way to get back inside and dive bomb our trying-to-sleep hero. Still, later he finds an even-more totally outrageous way to get back in the house. Each time it gets funnier.

For the first time ever, I appreciated the sound in here more than anything. The fly, the Panthers laughs, the fly's laugh, the noises made by fly as he did various things.....all of them are extremely funny.

This is a terrific PP cartoon; one of the best.
