Storyline

The Pink Panther joins the U.S. Army and goes to boot camp, where he unwittingly causes no end of trouble for a short, pointy-nosed drill Sergeant. Before long, the Sergeant is plotting to do away with the Pink Panther. He tries to trap the panther in a mine field, only to become trapped himself. He orders the Pink Panther to dig a hole in the middle of a grenade testing area and throws a grenade in, but the Pink Panther uses his shovel to hit it back baseball-style, and it rolls into the house of the camp mascot- a short-tempered bulldog- and explodes. The bulldog chases the Sergeant into the obstacle course the Sergeant had intended for the panther. The Sergeant next mails the Pink Panther to the Navy, who sends the panther back. So, the Sergeant runs off to join the Navy. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

The one with Pinky as an army recruit
18 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Without being one of the best of the Pink Panther series, G.I. Pink still delivers the goods. It is predictable story-wise and there is little surprise at how things are going to turn out. It is still very funny stuff though, on-screen and off-screen, especially with the grenades and the mines. Though the bull-dog does bag the very best moments. Predictable the story may be, dull it isn't, the pace is efficient and keeps one interested throughout. As ever, the animation is kept simple stylistically but it's also very well drawn and the colours are pretty, very much-improved over the animation in the previous cartoon Put-Put, Pink(the animation was rather simplistic in that one). The music is catchy and distinctively jazzy, with the theme tune still having its infectious staying power. It matches well with what's going on and doesn't slow the cartoon down, the orchestration as always is appropriate and appealing. Pinky is cool, likable and funny as you'd expect, the Little White Guy is a good foil and boss and you sympathise with him and the bull-dog is a great character too. Overall, a very good and funny cartoon though not one that leaps out as one of the best of the ever entertaining Pink Panther series. 8/10 Bethany Cox
