Storyline

The Pink Panther encounters a coin-operated talking weight and fortune machine which suggests that he bring it home with him on the basis of it being a valuable asset, able to provide weather forecasts and sports scores and predict the future whenever the panther so-desires. The Pink Panther assents to the machine's proposal, but whenever the machine is on the verge of disclosing expected important information, it goes silent, requiring the panther to insert a dime in the machine's coin slot. Besides, the information is not helpful in improving the panther's condition as a safe falls on top of the Pink Panther after the machine foresees a fortune "com(ing his) way", "back payment from a rear" is really a painful impact onto him from behind by a speeding car, and the panther refuses to believe the machine's statement that his future is "in the bag", the result being instant wealth for a man who picks up from a street a sack of money that the Pink Panther would have owned had he heeded ...

Decent, though doesn't see The Pink Panther at his best
4 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Pink Panther is always fun to watch, he is a very likable character and even his weakest cartoons are better than a lot of what we have today for animation. An Ounce of Pink is decent, but I have seen better from The Pink Panther. Of course there is a lot that works. Pinky is still a cool and easy-to-like character, and the machine is very funny as is its dialogue. The animation is simple but quite elegant in that regard and not simplistic, there is enough detail in the backgrounds and the colour have a sense of life. The music is still deliciously catchy, the theme tune is iconic and no matter how many times you never hear it it never annoys. The voice acting for the machine is stellar, while the story is crisply paced and our attention never wanders. An Ounce of Pink is not without its faults however, the ending is rather underwhelming, some of the gags while most are funny are maybe too mean-spirited and the canned laughter track is completely unnecessary and distracting(if it had been left out, I would have given An Ounce of Pink a point higher). To conclude, not quintessential Pink Panther but far from bad either. 7/10 Bethany Cox
