Storyline

The Pink Panther discovers a door with an hypnotic eye that takes him on a mind trip in a psychedelic book shop adorned by huge letters of the alphabet and managed by a short, pointy-nosed hippie. The shop contains a vending machine for lights (a cigarette lighter and Christmas tree lights) and books that "bleed" letters when damaged and are operated on as though critically injured.

Very good apart from the laughter track
12 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not one of the Pink Panther's greatest cartoons, but thoroughly entertaining still. The only real annoyance is the laughter track, which is not just distracting but unnecessary. The animation though is just wonderful, the images seen are fascinating and psychedelic personified and the colours are some of the most striking of any Pink Panther cartoon. It's drawn beautifully as well as you'd expect. The music is jazzy and upbeat, also very easy to remember and well matched with Pinky's antics. The theme tune was a classic and still is now. The gags are very clever, are imaginatively timed and are more importantly funny. The ending rounds things off nicely, and the story is a classic Pinky vs. the little white guy story and done with much humour, energy and heart. Pinky is a character full of charisma and natural comic timing and is likable and cool, those can all be seen in a cartoon that plays to his strengths. The little white guy is a great supporting character, he's funny too and often in his outings with Pinky is one we feel sympathy for. The two work with and against one another wonderfully. All in all, apart from the laughter track, Psychedelic Pink is a very good entry in the Pink Panther cartoon series. 8/10 Bethany Cox
