The Pink Panther is a very responsible caretaker in a national park. Then a very irresponsible short, pointy-nosed man arrives with his dog to camp out. Ignoring the prohibitions, the man sets a campfire, throws empty cans into the lake while fishing, and litters the forest so badly the panther has to send for the bear to order the man to clean up everything. At sunset, the park is clean again, and the man can go into his tent to sleep. Written by
Pink Panther cartoons are a vast majority of the time worth watching, and while it's somewhat different Keep Our Forests Pink is not an exception. If you want funny visual gags look elsewhere, Keep Our Forests Pink is agreed not that funny though with a few amusing touches(though admittedly that was the intent of the cartoon, just that it is very different to what we're used to). The ending is a very odd if slightly clever one, and the pace lags a bit. However Keep Our Forests Pink is simply but well animated, minimal but colourful and not too sparse in the drawing. The music as ever is fabulous, the soulful jazzy orchestration fits well and the theme tune is a justifiable classic, one of those theme tunes where no matter how many times you hear it it doesn't come across as annoying. Pinky is cool and likable and the Little White Man is a great foil filling in the role of the person doing what Pinky is trying to stop. Keep Our Forests Pink is very much a message cartoon, and does a great job in that regard, the messages the cartoon contains are very much relevant now and somehow it does it without being too heavy-handed. Considering that it was covering a subject matter where it was more than easy to be that it's quite impressive. Overall, a good Pink Panther cartoon if not a great one, there are both better and worse around. 7/10 Bethany Cox
