Storyline

While having picnic on the beach, the Pink Panther gets befriended by a salmon, who desperately wants to follow him home. At first, he has trouble surviving on dry land, but he learns fast, and when the panther sees the salmon on his doorstep with the morning paper in his mouth, he decides to adopt him as his pet. While out walking, the salmon wants to see "Moby Dick" playing in the movie theater, and the panther manages to sneak him in. However, when the salmon, gasping again, dives into the mug of lemonade another patron is holding, the panther and his pet rush out of the theater. A visit to the Ocean World Aquarium turns out bad, as the guard thinks the panther has stolen the salmon from them, so the fish ends up in one of the tanks. The panther has to disguise himself and secretly free the salmon from the tank. Written by jan-wiberg <JanWibergE@netscape.net>

The best Pink Panther cartoon since 1971's The Pink Flea
30 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Pink Panther cartoons are always entertaining, most of them so far seen(now on the 1975 batch) have entertained, there are a fair number of classics or near-classics and a few missteps(though not catastrophically, the worst so far has been Pink-In and that was more pointless than disastrous). Salmon Pink is one of the classics and as the review summary says it is the best of the Pink Panther cartoons since The Pink Flea. The animation is very colourful and while it's relatively simple the cartoon doesn't make the mistake of making it too hurried or sparse. The music is similarly great, from the jazzy scoring to the timeless theme tune. The gags are indeed absurd- not in a bad way at all- but also truly hilarious with not a single bad gag, the animation helps. Not since Psychedelic Pink perhaps has there been a more unique story in any Pink Panther cartoon or a delightfully bizarre one, it also moves efficiently and is one of by far the least predictable stories of the Pink Panther cartoons. It has a lot of heart too. Pinky has great comic timing and has no difficulty being cool and likable, and he doesn't do anything that stops us from feeling that. In fact he's very sympathetic here, which is what gives Salmon Pink its heart. Pinky works brilliantly with the fish, who is possibly one of the funniest and most engaging supporting characters in any Pink Panther cartoon, certainly a personal favourite at least. Overall, a Pink Panther classic and one of my personal favourites of the series. 10/10 Bethany Cox
