Storyline

The Pink Panther stops to spend a night at a castle in Transylvania, believing it to be a lodge. It is in fact a vampire's castle with such denizens as a hairy, knife-throwing hand, a phantom in squeaky shoes, and the usual living-dead blood-sucker. Thinking the vampire's coffin to be that of a dead man, the Pink Panther buries it. Come dusk, the coffin rumbles to surface, and the vampire emerges. The Pink Panther uses bug spray to repel the vampire in bat form, and it flies out a window and changes to the vampire, who falls into a moat inhabited by a shark. The shark chases the vampire, and the phantom chases the Pink Panther, before sunrise causes vampire, shark, phantom, and castle to disappear. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

The Pink Panther in Transylvania
11 May 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Admittedly Pink Plasma is a somewhat odd cartoon(but in a good way) but in my opinion it is among the better later Pink Panther cartoons. Some of the second half is on the routine side, but to be honest that is not unusual for the Pink Panther cartoons, and even with that they're still entertaining(and Pink Plasma still is as well). The story is a very neat set-up with evidence of some spooky atmosphere, and there is never a dull stretch. The gags- most of which is Pinky outwitting Dracula in ways that is very reminiscent of the abuse of the Little White Man- benefit from good timing, not abrupt or drawn out, and most importantly funny, the best of it actually is hilarious. Sure the Dracula with shark gag is a little repetitive but is still amusing so it doesn't things at all. It is very Pink Panther humour, and that's part of the charm. The music is very memorable and seductively jazzy, it's not rousing-fast like some of the music for the Looney Tunes cartoons but it doesn't drag things either and fits with the gags very well. The theme tune is justifiably iconic and despite hearing more times than can count it has lost none of its appeal. Pinky is cool and lovable as well as funny, his switch from scared to indifferent matches the gags and the situation perfectly, if initially a tad odd. Dracula is deliciously kooky, and the shark and phantom are hardly insignificant either. But the highlight is the animation, which is very fluid and colourful(with some appealing gloulishness too), it's not only one of the best-looking later Pink Panther cartoons but also perhaps one of the better looking Pink Panther cartoons in general. In conclusion, a great cartoon, odd and a tad routine in places but great. 9/10 Bethany Cox
