Storyline

The Pink Panther opens a corn vending stand adjacent to his vast corn field, which is invaded by a tenacious pair of crows who begin devouring the panther's corn. When the panther places a scarecrow next to the field, the crows remove the clothes from the scarecrow and pose as a customer to sample the corn at the Pink Panther's stand. When the panther realizes that he is being tricked, he opens fire upon the crows with his rifle. An escalating war between panther and crows involves the panther's use of a box trap, grenades painted to look like corn, and machine gun shells, none of which stop the two crows from further raids on the field. The Pink Panther builds a brick wall, which one of the crows impacts, and the rain of bricks strikes the second crow. The Pink Panther pities the two seriously injured birds and allows them to eat some of the corn, and the crows summon all their friends to join them!

Hugely entertaining(to watch) battle of the corn
11 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

None of the 1969 Pink Panther cartoons have disappointed, and Pink on the Cob also doesn't disappoint. Not the absolute best of that particular batch, but on the whole with the Pink Panther cartoons Pink on the Cob is among the one-of-the-better group. Conceptually if you are familiar with Pinky battling different characters for the same thing it is not much of a variation here. But when there is so much charm and entertainment to be seen in Pink on the Cob, that doesn't matter all that much, and it is a fun and crisply paced story as well. The animation is bright and colourful with simple albeit carefully drawn backgrounds. The music with the ever classic theme tune and the jazzy incidental orchestration is catchy and subtly used, not too repetitive, it is reflective of the 60s jazz but still holds its relevance and appeal now as well. The gags are cleverly timed and riotously funny, no obvious duds here, not just the actions and the wit but the gestures and expressions are a joy visually and it synchronises very well with the sound and the music. Pinky is a cool and relatable character with great comic timing, and he contrasts beautifully with the crows who are somewhat on the irritating side(though they are meant to be) but are funny too. Overall, hugely entertaining and colourful, for Pink Panther fans Pink on the Cob doesn't disappoint. 9/10 Bethany Cox
