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 ...

The Good & Bad of 'An Ounce Of Pink'
26 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"You weigh 140 pounds, are very gullible and spend your money foolishly," says an insightful talking weight machine to the Pink Panther. Well, at least we found out how much our hero weighs, not that we care.

This is a cool machine. It keeps talking to the Panther, finally talking it into buying "him" and taking him home, which he does. This machine is amazing, just like having a roommate except he can also tell you the future. or the weather, or the latest baseball scores. However, he's a bit annoying to the Panther.

Overall, this was so-so at best. The machine was humorous. I enjoyed listening to him, even with his horrible Brooklyn accent BUT the cartoon had a very weak ending and it had a laugh track, which is totally unnecessary. I have yet to see a good PP cartoon that included the canned laughter.
