Atypical but very sweet
12 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are much funnier Pink Panther cartoons around, there are a few comic moments but they are more raise-a-smile amusing than laugh-out-loud funny. Even with that said, I cannot bring myself to dislike Pink Pranks because while it's different there is a real charm to it, starting with that there has not been a Pink Panther cartoon personally seen so far as cute and touchingly sweet as Pink Pranks. The cute moments are sentimental but in a genuinely touching and heart-warming way than mawkish. The animation is as expected very simple(a lot of the Pink Panther cartoons' animation style is and it's part of the charm) but it is also well drawn and the colours used are elegant and not too flat or bright. The music is jazzy and sly, with the justifiably classic theme tune as catchy and winning as ever, one of those that appeals even after hearing it umpteen times. The story is one of the least predictable of the Pink Panther series and is never dull, even when not as funny as other outings and cuter than usual. Pinky is cool and charismatic as well as more sympathetic than usual, the adorable and endearingly friendly seal almost steals the show and the hunter is a good adversary, one that's easy to hate. The three interact beautifully with one another. In conclusion, very sweet while not overly so as long as you don't mind the change of pace, which shouldn't be a detriment. 8/10 Bethany Cox
