A Pink Panther cartoon that didn't really feel like a Pink Panther cartoon
14 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

That is a shame as I love the Pink Panther and his cartoons. Shocking Pink is hardly bad, but I couldn't help feeling disappointed(though even a disappointing Pink Panther cartoon is more watchable than animation nowadays in comparison). It has things to like about it certainly. The animation is very nicely done, it's simple but colourful and smooth, and Pinky is drawn well. The iconic music is still catchy and infectious, never irritating in that respect. The ending is fun and so are one or two of the gags like the one with the shower. For all the good assets seen though what didn't work for me were issues that I just couldn't ignore. The canned laughter track had absolutely no point being there and I do agree with the commentator who felt as though they were being forced to laugh, I did get that feel as well and I shouldn't be feeling it with Pink Panther as he and his cartoons are funny all on their own. Aside from the odd moment, the humour wasn't particularly funny, much of it was predictable and lacking in energy. The canner laughter didn't things at all, and neither did the omnipresent narrator, who was decent enough to start with but quickly became irritating. The biggest disappointment though was how little Pinky properly got to shine. He is a witty, cool and clever character, but you only see this in the ending, the rest was him being irritated by the narrator and the DIY and he just seemed out of sorts. All in all, not great, not bad, kind of mixed here. It looks good, the music is still great and the odd gag is fun, but the canned laughter and narration didn't add very much and Pinky's personality didn't come through enough. 5/10 Bethany Cox
