The Pink Panther decides to become a matador and to this purpose confiscates a magician's cape. The panther enters a bullfight ring with the magical cape, and the bull is thwarted not by the panther's bullfighting prowess but by the cape's trickery, in that it deposits flowers onto the bull's horns and produces a foul-tempered, kicking rabbit that angers the bull into running through the cape and being split into two halves.

The Pink Panther cartoons were part of my childhood and I still am fond of them to this day, and while Bully for Pink is not one of the best of Pinky it is still very entertaining. The backgrounds are sparsely detailed at times and the ending is rushed and not particularly funny. I do agree somewhat about the premise not being the most original, reading the title and the synopsis I immediately thought of Bully for Bugs(which I prefer actually) and there are shades of that cartoon in here, though I'm not sure whether I'd go as far to say it nicked it. However, the bull is very well drawn, terrifying at times but somewhat cute too, as is Pinky. The colours are lovely too. The theme tune is still infectious, even after hearing it umpteen times I am not annoyed at all by it, and the music for the cartoon is subtly used and easy to remember. The gags are not the same as those for Bully for Bugs, and they are well-timed and above all they are funny as well, especially the sequence with the rabbit. Pinky is still the cool and clever character we know him for, and the bull- I agree that the sound effects are priceless!- brings great support and contrast. All in all, not Pinky's best but still very good and entertaining. 8/10 Bethany Cox
