Storyline

The Pink Panther longs for a pet, but he hasn't got enough money to buy one. A suspect man in a street corner fools him into buying a rock as his pet. The panther adopts the rock anyway, and it immediately takes on a life of its own. When the panther is out walking the rock, they pass a place where rocks and gravel are sold. The rock goes wild and eats the entire supply, growing into a huge boulder. The panther is kicked out of his home by his own mother after the boulder has made a large hole in the floor. The persistent boulder rolls into some wet cement, making it so huge the panther gets terrified and runs away from it. Written by jan-wiberg <JanWibergE@netscape.net>

Rock trouble with the Pink Panther
15 August 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The story in Rocky Pink is rather predictable, the objects following and causing trouble for Pinky idea has been done a fair number of times in the Pink Panther cartoons and with variable results and there is not much variation here. The pace is good at the start and in the first two minutes but does drag a tad in spots after that(the antics with the rock start only just less than half-way through into the cartoon. And the animation is still not great even for a purposefully simply animated series of cartoons(most of the time colourfully and endearingly), it looks like it was drawn in a rush and the colours do look flat and limited in numbers of colours used. There are bright spots with the animation though, the animation on the rock is quite good and a lot of the facial expressions like at the beginning are well-drawn and funny. Rocky Pink is more amusing than hilarious but the use of thought processes and signs while familiar are entertaining, the first two minutes set the cartoon up well and the cement gag makes for an inventive end to the cartoon. The one with the hole in the floor doesn't quite work as well, still amusing but it's one of the cartoon's most predictable moments. The music is as characterful and slinky as ever and while being variations of the theme tune and doesn't feel too samey or repetitive. The theme tune has lost none of its timeless value. Pinky is a great titular character, cool and likable with good comic timing and you do feel sorry for him at the end and when he gets kicked out by his mother. The rock while doing stuff that's similar to those done by other objects Pinky battles in previous cartoons is still an amusing foil and while the pet store owner and suspect man have small roles they are hardly insignificant, some of the better moments in the cartoon happen to belong in the reactions of the pet store owner or at least to me. All in all, decent if unexceptional Pink Panther cartoon. 7/10 Bethany Cox
