Pink Plasma is a Pink Panther cartoon that was also aired as part of both the The Pink Panther Show and The Pink Panther and Friends television show. It was originally seen in theaters on August 8, 1975.


The short opens with The Pink Panther stopping to spend a night at a castle in Transylvania, believing it to be a lodge. However, it is in fact a vampire's castle with such denizens as a hairy, knife-throwing hand, a phantom in squeaky shoes, and the usual living-dead blood-sucker. Thinking the vampire's coffin to be that of a dead man, the Pink Panther buries it. Come dusk, the coffin rumbles to surface, and the vampire emerges. The Pink Panther uses bug spray to repel the vampire in bat form, and it flies out a window and changes back to a vampire, who falls into a moat inhabited by a shark. The shark chases the vampire, and the phantom chases the Pink Panther, but the coming sunrise causes the vampire, shark, phantom, and castle to disappear.


  • The ending of the episode is somewhat reminiscent to the ending of a previous Pink Panther cartoon, Pink Panic, in which the environment the episode takes place in and the inhabitants disappear when the sun rises.
