Charles Dreyfus encounters Jacques Gambrelli, who reminds him painfully of Inspector Clouseau, the man who drove him insane. With good reason: Gambrelli is Clouseau's son.
According to the TCMDb, "Gérard Depardieu was originally set to star".
Hanif: Good, huh?
Yussa: Yes, she's good.
Hanif: As good as you?
Hanif: She was only showing how good she is.
Hans Zarba: I know how... good she is... or she wouldn't be with us.
Hans Zarba: Now, there's to be no fighting amongst us, understood?
Gambrelli says "ha" when Yussa shoots at him, but his mouth is closed.
The closing credits start with the Pink Panther walking across a still of Jacques Gambrelli. Suddenly the animated Gambrelli cuts away the head of live-action Gambrelli and pops out of the hole, dropping the head on the Panther; the enraged Panther chases him into fading blackness.
Italian prints (available on DVD in Italy) contains several alternate scenes, different camera angles and sound effects. This version runs at 86 minutes, seven minutes shorter of the U.S. cut. The alternate scenes are somewhat bawdy and make for a much funnier film:
