Very predictable, but amusing and beautifully animated
The Pink Panther cartoons are always fun to watch and most of them hold up well. Lucky Pink is not among the best of them, story-wise it's very predictable(among the most predictable of the series possibly) and a couple of gags seemed rather drawn out and stale. Lucky Pink is beautifully animated though, stylistically it's kept simple but the colours are very striking and the drawing is elegant. Definitely one of the most visually beautiful Pink Panther cartoons. The music is catchy with wonderfully jazzy orchestration and a good sense of character. Henry Mancini's theme tune is a classic, and still ageless and infectious after so many times of hearing it. Most of the gags do work, they are timed generally well and while never hilarious they are nonetheless very amusing, especially the antics with the shoe. Pinky is somewhat one-dimensional, that doesn't really matter though because he's still one of animation's most likable and coolest characters, and his comedy feels natural too. His adversary works well with him and within the cartoon itself, though Pinky has had more memorable ones. All in all, amusing and very well animated, though doesn't make much of an impression narratively. 7/10 Bethany Cox
