From TibbyH :

This is one of my personal favorite entries in the Pink Panther series. Filled with so many hilarious spot gags, a catchy main melody from Henry Mancini's main theme to "A Shot in the Dark", and the cool night time setting make this a high ranking cartoon in the theatrical series. I love how this robber has so much personality without having to speak a word of dialogue, and Don William's animation breaths a lot of energy into his actions. Also enjoy how the Pink Panther acts so smug and reserved throughout the run time, as if he takes pleasure in the humiliation of the robber. DePatie-Freleng at their finest with this short.
