Storyline

In South Africa, a talking Pink Panther is the owner of a diamond mine and has unearthed a large gem. He puts it in his safe, which has a combination lock that functions like a telephone dial, and a man tunnels into the safe and filches the jewel. The Pink Panther suspects gophers of perpetrating the theft, but a dastardly pair of rival miners, operating the neighboring DeBoors mine, have taken the diamond and claim it and the diamond-yielding territory as their own. The pair of men ineptly try to eliminate the panther, and the debonaire Pink Panther defeats them, obtaining an even larger diamond and removing it from the DeBoors camp.

One of the funnier Pink Panther short films.
20 April 2001 | by (Luoyang, China) – See all my reviews

The title `Pink Ice' refers to a hilarious competition between two neighboring diamond mines, one of them operated by our hero, the Pink Panther, and the other one operated by a team of greedy geologist type men and, as is the tradition in cartoons, one of the men is a tyrannical leader and the other is a more easy going type but is also a complete moron.

Some things didn't make a lot of sense in the film, such as the way that Hoskins falls and drops the diamond that they had just stolen from the Pink Panther, and it breaks like glass. On the plus side, at least he now knows that it was worthless, because it's no secret that no diamond in the world would break from falling like that. It is particularly amusing to see that when the Pink Panther goes over to the competing diamond mine (called `DeBoors Diamond Mines'), he is dressed exactly like Hugh Hefner.

Besides being made up of the traditional series of encounters between the two opposing forces in the cartoon (the Pink Panther and the two men), Pink Ice also displays one of the other stereotypes of relatively mature cartoons

  • shotgun blasts that, instead of blowing the target to pieces as they


would in real life, merely seem to cover the subject with ash. But despite these weaknesses, Pink Ice is still one of the better one of the short Pink Panther cartoons. It is especially amusing when the Pink Panther turns the two men against each other and then, while thy are blowing each other away with their ash guns, he makes off with a tremendous diamond, mentioning the moral of the story, that the rolling stone gathers no moss. Also notice the unusual prevalence of spoken dialogue.
