Storyline

As if it weren't hard enough for the Pink Panther to catch sleep, a mosquito proves hell-bent to keep him awake. However often the panther swats and after countless miss-hits literally kicks it out his porch, the buzzing bug gets back and makes a noisy nuisance of itself, over and over, till the whole Pink house looks like a war scene, then makes its final move...

Classic Pink Panther
18 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Possibly the Pink Panther's best cartoon since The Pink Phink. If anybody likes The Pink Panther like I do they will love The Pink Tail Fly, right from the different but interesting opening to the end. It is well animated, the style is simple but the colours are beautiful to look at, the backgrounds are not too sparse and the two characters are well drawn. The iconic main theme still has its infectious quality, and the background music is similarly catchy. The gags are both imaginative and hilarious, the sound effects are some of the best of any Pink Panther cartoon and both characters are a lot of fun to watch. I do prefer Pinky when he is the one outwitting his adversaries but because he has such a strong adversary this time round with great comic timing and great material it works very well here and he is a joy to watch. The fly is hilarious and a perfect match for Pinky, he is annoying at times but that was the intention I think. The story is well paced and not too routine and never simplistic.

In conclusion, recommended highly for those who love the Pink Panther. 10/10 Bethany Cox
