Storyline

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.

A Pink Panther cartoon made for good laughters
19 August 2007 | by (The world of artists) – See all my reviews

"Bully For Pink" is one of the best and funniest Pink Pather's cartoons. Extremely underrated, but one of my personal favorites.

The Pink Panther decides to try a new challenge: to know what it's like to be a toreador (or matador). Since he has no cape, he steals a magician's cape, without knowing that the cape he just stole is actually a magical cape!

When the Pink Panther enters in the arena, a big bull appears. Strange and hilarious things happen whenever the bull goes straight to the red cape. For example, a birdcage appears on the bull's head and there is an occasion when the cape deposits flowers on the bull's horns. That always makes me laugh!

I also give good laughters whenever a very quick-tempered rabbit kicks the bull, driving the bull nuts and disappearing into the cape. The bull also makes some hilarious sounds! I also like the part when the Panther locks the bull and slams the bull's face while he yells and when the bull is free the Panther is petrified.

However, the part when the bull is split in two halves is sad and touching. The bull cries in that scene. But in the end the bull recovers his two halves and leaves the arena very happy, while the rabbit has had enough, packs his suitcases and leaves! Simply hilarious!

That bull is so funny-looking: despite being large, his head, nose and ears are so tiny!

I absolutely love this animated short! Great fun, incredibly entertaining and very humorous! A classic!
