Storyline

An English voice talks to the Pink Panther, who is reading a book about secret agents, and suggests to the panther that he become an agent. Intrigued at this idea, the Pink Panther dons a trench coat, hat, and pipe and walks nonchalantly on city streets, looking for enemy spies. He comes upon a gang of foreign agents scheming to detonate a series of black-ball bombs, and when they realize he is following them, they shoot him with guns, lure him into a crocodile trap, and, under cover of darkness aboard a train, replace his cigarette with a bomb.

The name's Panther, Pink Panther
12 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Pinkfinger is perhaps not among Pink Panther's best, but it is still a good fun cartoon, which is what matters more. Phrases like "old boy" and "good show" in the narration are overused to annoyance, some of the character designs are lacking in smoothness and while amusing the alligator gag has been done before in cartoons many times so the outcome wasn't all that surprising. However, the colours and backgrounds are beautifully done and look very Fritz Freleng, it's simple but effective in that sense. Henry Mancini's main theme is iconic, you can still hear why and the rest of the music accompanying the action is just as catchy. Pinkfinger is more amusing than it is hilarious, but it still entertains. The cartoon's biggest laugh easily comes from the "blast him" gag, if there was one part that was hilarious it was this. The story fun, well-paced and different somewhat for the Pink Panther, nothing comes across as predictable or derivative. Pinky as ever is subtly cunning, and has considerable enough to carry the material. Paul Frees and Dave Barry's vocals are very nicely done. All in all, not Pinky at his best but still worth the viewing. 7/10 Bethany Cox
