Storyline

Another battle of the paintbrush between the Pink Panther and a diminutive painter, who this time is Leonardo Da Vinci, painting his masterpiece, the Mona Lisa. The little Da Vinci paints a pouting mouth on the Mona Lisa, but the Pink Panther decides to covertly replace the pout with a smile. When the smile wins the appreciation of an art patron, Da Vinci is enraged and repaints the pout. The Pink Panther repeatedly changes the pout to a smile while the little painter is not looking, and ultimately it is the Pink Panther's version of the Mona Lisa that hangs in the Louvre.

The Pink Panther and the battle of the paint-brush
14 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The story, although the concept is a great one and works very well here, isn't all that surprising(though that's common actually with the Pink Panther cartoons) and it does run out of steam too early, it's a one-joke cartoon that didn't quite sustain itself enough through to the end. Pink Da Vinci however is still thoroughly entertaining and is a fair bit better than the five Pink Panther cartoons before it. The ending lets things down somewhat in terms of humour, but most of the cartoon is very funny, the best moments hilarious, which is just great. You learn a fair bit as well, youngsters will love the Leaning Tower of Pisa history lesson which is incorporated cleverly. The animation is bright and colourful as well as elegantly drawn, making Pink Da Vinci a visually appealing cartoon which always helps. The incidental music is jazzy, giving it a slightly seductive element while not slowing the story down or becoming repetitive. The theme tune is still a classic, and hasn't gotten old for me for a theme tune so iconic and that is played and played many times. Pinky is still immensely likable, he is still funny and very cool. The diminutive man assuming the great painter Leonardo Da Vinci is a good foil for Pinky and you do feel some sympathy for him in his battles. All in all, colourful and funny, a one-joke cartoon that mostly works. 8/10 Bethany Cox
