Come On In! The Water's Pink is the 40th cartoon produced in the Pink Panther series. A total of 124 6-minute cartoons were produced between 1964 and 1980.
The Pink Panther spends the day at Bicep Beach, arriving on his motorcycle
. With him is a suitcase full of strange inflatable items, including muscles, weights, a swimming pool, waterskis, and balloon animals. Observing all of this is an egotistical strongman
flexing his muscles for a group of bathing beauties. The panther quietly manages to steal the attention of the ladies away from the muscleman, who tries in vain to maintain his "good looking guy on the beach" status.
This Pink Panther short is similar to the 1961 Zagreb Films animated short, Ersatz.
