Storyline

The panther is an eager wanna-be instructor who forces his services on the short, pointy-nosed man. The man first chooses to be taught archery, but this only results in the man flying straight through the archery board, and the panther repeatedly failing his attempts to hit the board. Further lessons in skiing, sailing and sky diving result in the man to be severely injured and hospitalized. Still, the panther wants to teach the reluctant man water skiing and golf, resulting in more horrible accidents. Written by jan-wiberg <JanWibergE@netscape.net>

How not to do sports with the Pink Panther
27 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Of the three Pink Panther cartoons seen so far from 1976, The Pink Pro personally was the best of them. The others being the entertaining but just above average Mystic Pink and Pink Arabee. The backgrounds are rather sparse with want of more colour vibrancy(this was at a point where the purposefully minimal animation in the Pink Panther cartoons was starting to look rushed) and the ending was a touch on the abrupt side, but The Pink Pro is lots of fun all the same. The theme tune has lost none of its deserved timeless classic status and Walter Greene's incidental music never falls into the trap of being repetitive or draggy despite a lot of it being variations of the main theme. All of the gags revolving on all the different sports and how not to do them are very funny, despite the outcome being obvious each time and the archery one while still funny being slightly dragged out, the skiing, sky-diving and water-skiing being the most entertaining. The chemistry between the two characters anchors The Pink Pro and they work great together. Pinky as always is likable, love his eagerness and attempts to be kind, even if his good intentions don't work. We constantly feel sorry for The Little Man and naturally, especially after the sky-diving, and you do feel his reluctance. All in all, fun and very well done Pink Panther cartoon and the best so far of the 1976 batch(don't agree at all with the low rating, though it does look like a case of lack of number of votes). 8/10 Bethany Cox
