Storyline

A little, pointy-nosed playboy coming out of a nightclub does a good deed for the Pink Panther by pulling a nail out of the panther's foot, and the grateful panther becomes slave to the little man, assisting him to compel his shrewish wife to do all the chores at home, cleaning behind him as he drops his cigar ashes and beer cans on the floor. Each time the wife tries to retaliate against her inconsiderate husband, the playboy slob whistles for the Pink Panther to roar at her and frighten her into submission. Tables turn when the wife pulls a nail out of the Pink Panther's foot and the panther is now her slave and allows her to smash bottles on her playboy husband's head.

Up there with one of Pinky's best
11 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Most of the Pink Panther cartoons are good fun(though there are a few mediocre or disappointing ones too), then there are a handful that are great and even classic. Pinkadilly Circus is one of the classic ones. The animation is very true to most other Pink Panther cartoons, the style is simple but not overly-so while also clean and elegant. The music is equally great, the theme tune is a classic and rightfully so while the music in the cartoon itself has an upbeat, jazzy and catchy orchestration and style. The gags are clever and always never less than funny, the best of them are hilarious actually, while the cartoon moves quickly and has a story that serves the characters well. Pinky is still appealing and oozes coolness, his comic timing as always is perfectly pitched. The Little White Guy is the sort of guy who proves a funny foil and sometimes, especially here, in a way that makes you feel for him and his predicament. All in all, wonderful and up there with one of the Pink Panther's best. 10/10 Bethany Cox
