From TibbyH :

This is one of the few 70s Pink Panther shorts to get close to matching the quality of the 60s shorts. Unfortunately, the racism makes this hard to watch and ruins the comedy (it's especially uncomfortable to watch with the laugh track). Very emblematic of what was happening to DePatie-Freleng and their ever deteriorating theatrical shorts. Sad how this was what series co-creator Hawley Pratt had to leave on.
