Storyline

The panther, desperate for a place to sleep, lies down on a sofa in a hotel lobby, but the hotel detective orders him to leave. When the panther notices a convention is about to take place in the hotel, he disguises himself as one of the convention members and manages to sneak into an upper floor. The detective, who has noticed his disguise, chases the panther, who sneaks into the room of an obese man. The man's snoring keeps the panther awake, so he hides in the man's trousers and leaves the room. He mistakenly awakens the sleeping detective, but avoids being captured, and so he leaves the hotel.

Fair, if a let down after Salmon Pink
22 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Pink Panther cartoons are entertaining on the most part, and while among neither the best of worst of them Forty Pink Winks is still a fair watch. The animation is fine, very simple but fluid enough and colourful rather than sparse and scratchy as some minimal-style animation can be. Likewise with the music, with the still-classic theme tune and slinky incidental scoring that doesn't bog down the pace or feel at odds with the rest of the cartoon. Pinky is as cool and likable as ever with good comic timing and you do sympathise with his situation(admittedly though he has been funnier with better material), and while never quite hilarious the gags are reasonably timed and do have some amusement. The detective is a fun foil too, if not one of the most memorable supporting characters in a Pink Panther cartoon. Forty Pink Winks was a let down however for me after the terrific previous cartoon Salmon Pink. The obese man doesn't really do much that has any real entertainment and he does come across as somewhat pointless, it was fine with just Pinky and the detective. Forty Pink Winks story-wise is not really that special, granted Pink Panther cartoons are not that well remembered for their stories but it was rather bland here. It does start off very well but the second half is little more than the standard chasing/outwitting one another scenario with a lot of predictability and with material that has been much fresher elsewhere. The pacing also could have had more momentum, it wasn't necessarily dull but it was a case of the less inspired the material got the more the pace lost its lustre. On the whole, very like the previous commentator I found Forty Pink Winks a fair cartoon but not a great one. 6/10 Bethany Cox
