A string of robberies has occurred in Britain and it's up to Inspector Clouseau to catch the criminal.
In the scene where Clouseau is being chased through the cemetery after falling in the plot and disrupting the funeral, you can see a sign on a cross in the lower right part of the screen for a few seconds. The sign reads "Reposite En Pace: Norman Lear, 1903-1962". This is an in-joke that refers to Norman Lear, who was director Bud Yorkin's producing partner for many years on shows such as All in the Family (1971) and Sanford and Son (1972).
Inspector Jacques Clouseau:
There is a time to laugh and a time not to laugh, and this is not one of them.
Having a group of people wearing the same masks robbing different banks at the same time would not help the criminals. Their finger prints would still be left behind . As well as the fact that our current laws if physics prevent being in two different places at the same time . It would have been discovered that one man can't be in multiple banks around Switzerland at the same time.
The opening credits are of an animated Inspector Clouseau pursuing a bank robber.
