Before there was "Home Improvement," there was SHOCKING PINK
16 February 2006 | by (Phoenixville, PA USA) – See all my reviews

The 12th cartoon in the series continues the trend of other characters talking to the silent feline. In this case, it is character actor Larry Storch (of "F Troop" fame) mocking a fantastic cockney British accent, and harassing the relaxing panther. Ol' Pinky is trying to enjoy a quiet Sunday afternoon, while Storch badgers him into doing some housework.

The Pink Panther encounters several mishaps around the house (Tim Allen would be proud), but Storch persists. Finally, after nearly six minutes of irritating the feline, Pinky loads a blunderbuss and gives the impressions he will blow away Storch.

Funny and smart, SHOCKING PINK is a nice early entry in the series. Friz Freleng had not quite abandoned the dialogue that soon became but a memory in this successful series.

Like most "Pink Panther" cartoons that were broadcast on NBC-TV, there is a laugh track present that only reinforces the fact these cartoons were aimed at adults as well as children. Though generally despised in America, in theory there is really nothing wrong with a few additional chuckles. Surprisingly, the giggles in SHOCKING PINK are not particularly intrusive. Besides, laughing matters.
