Late at night, the Pink Panther hides in the Gambles Department Store, and spends the night trying to hide from the night-shift janitor (the Little Man), while also using many of the products on display at the store. After enduring a hefty amount of suffering at the hands of mayhem which the Panther causes (although he does not actually know of the Panther's existence), the janitor leaves a resignation notice in the manager's office. After the Panther disposes of a tiger-skin rug that has sprung to life and has been romantically attracted to him (thanks to an aroma of the Pink Passion perfume, which our hero had sprayed onto himself), he finds that a new janitor has been hired; he then quickly hides, and braces for the process to repeat itself.
Note: First cartoon in which the Pink Panther loses in the end.
42Dial "P" for PinkFriz Freleng; Hawley Pratt (co-director)March 17, 1965 (1965-03-17)

However, the thief begins to think that the Panther is tricking him, and that the safe is actually filled with explosives. He forces the Panther to take the safe back, but his conscience then reassures him into thinking that there is indeed money in the safe. He steals it back from the Panther and runs off into the horizon, only to be blown up by explosives that actually were in the safe.
Note: Features the theme song from the Blake Edwards film A Shot in the Dark, which would be featured prominently in The Inspector cartoon series; the Little Man does not appear; on some runs, this short uses laugh tracks, though it's not the first episode to have them.

Big-game hunter Tex B'wana (voiced by Paul Frees) uses a “Noah's Ark” plot to catch animals in Africa to make fur clothing for his daughter Nora, but he soon has trouble catching a pink panther to complete his haul. The cunning Panther manages to keep Tex from entering his own ark. Ultimately, with the help of a friendly elephant, our hero tricks Tex into freeing all the animals by conjuring the fake rainstorm that Tex had fabricated earlier, with the fooled hunter running into the ark and thinking that unlike the animals, he will not drown.

Fed up with the torment put through him, the Panther digs through a trunk in the basement and pulls out a blunderbuss. Afraid that the Panther is going to shoot him, the narrator tries to talk him out of it, but instead, he aims it at the lightbulb, and shoots it out, but the Panther ends up locked in the trunk when the force from the gunshot flings him backwards into it.
