The diminutive owner of a diner situated next to a construction site is inundated with lunchtime customers and hires the Pink Panther as a short-order cook. But the accident-prone panther causes nothing but trouble for the little diner owner. A flipped pizza sticks to the kitchen ceiling, and when the Pink Panther saws a hole through the ceiling and the pizza, with a slab of ceiling wood beneath, falls onto the grill, the little diner owner hurries to bring the pizza to a burly, impatient customer, who bites into a truly wooden-crust pizza, then punishes the little man with a pie in the face. The same customer later requests on two separate occasions a cake and blueberry pie. The Pink Panther catapults the cake into the customer's face, and a fan blows the blueberry topping of the pie to the same unfortunate place. The irate customer puts a R.I.P. wreath at the door of the diner and chases panther and little owner into the horizon. Written by

I agree that Pink Blue Plate is one of those cartoons that is funny but more in an amusing way rather than in a hilarious way. The gags are not that original but make for good entertainment still and most of the pacing is solid though with a few lulls. The story is very routine, a different setting but it is not much different from other characters having trouble from what Pinky causes. Pink Blue Plate is still very nicely animated with simple but elegant drawing and good use of colour. As well as well-scored, the theme tune deserves its classic status and still doesn't tire and the orchestration is jazzy and sly in a style that was reminiscent of the 60s-70s and is still relevant and appealing now. Pinky is still the cool, likable and effortlessly funny character that makes him such a good character in the first place and he is supported well.
To conclude, a solid entry of the Pink Panther cartoons but not great and short of the best ones. 7/10 Bethany Cox
