The Pink Panther misses his train to work because he isn’t able to wake up on time. He smashes his alarm clock, cuts the electric cord to the radio, etc. He ends up buying a cuckoo clock that’s guaranteed to help him wake up faster. But he has no idea what he’s in for: the cuckoo has a mind of its own. The bird tries everything (horns, drums, everything else) to wake the Pink Panther. The panther ends up throwing the bird and the clock into the river, then feels guilty and tries to find the cuckoo. The little bird swims to shore and comes back. Finally, the Pink Panther and the cuckoo both end up sleeping in late.
