"Having trouble crossing streets? Let us help you", 20 October 2013

Think Before You Pink starts off a little basic but once it gets going it is great right up to the end. The animation is lovely and well drawn while still adopting the simple style that has always been part of the Pink Panther cartoons' charm. The jazziness of the score and how catchy it is often is also a thing to like about Think Before You Pink, and the theme tune still hasn't gotten old or annoying. The visual gags are very funny and inspired, and the cartoon itself is a very sharp satire on a subject(signs) that doesn't seem interesting but can be a nightmare for anybody trying to get to somewhere new or trying to avoid being run over(both's happened to me before, just over a year ago I sprained my ankle trying to do the latter). In this respect you can relate to Pinky, and he hasn't lost his comic timing or coolness. The story is not the strongest in the world, if you have seen 60+ Pink Panther cartoons you will get used to that the story is never the best asset, but it is not a liability either. In fact the gags and satire are so strong that anything that could be considered a fault after the basic beginning can be ignored. Overall, great fun, there is no reason why Pink Panther should miss or dislike Think Before You Pink. 9/10 Bethany Cox
