Storyline

Inspired by the legendary fictional character The Scarlet Pimpernel, the Pink Panther dons a red cape and a red hat with a feather, and becomes The Scarlet Pinkernel, protector of stray dogs. The first two dogs he saves from the dog catcher are anything but grateful, but the third dog, a large and cuddly one, gets too grateful and persistent, hops on the panther's motorcycle while he starts it, and blocks his view. The wild ride goes through a subway tunnel with a train in hot pursuit, and ends up in a telephone pole as the dog tries to chase a cat. Written by jan-wiberg <JanWibergE@netscape.net>

Moral learnt from watching this cartoon: no good deed goes unpunished
17 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As with most Pink Panther cartoons, very enjoyable. The animation is quite limited here, even by Pink Panther standards, most of the cartoons still look appealing but they're vibrantly coloured and reasonably elegant. Here there is some evidence of that and it is an improvement over that of the previous two cartoons(which were also good otherwise) but it can look a little flat and sparse too. The Little Man, usually a convincing adversary who we a fair amount of times feel somewhat sorry for, doesn't have much to do here, his purpose in the cartoon is perfectly clear but he doesn't have much that is funny. The theme tune however is still a classic, and Walter Greene's accompanying music has a seductive, slinky and characteristically jazzy edge without dragging the pace, despite his music for the Pink Panther cartoons basically being variations on the theme tune nothing comes across as repetitive. The visual gags, most Pink Panther cartoons being entirely wordless, at the least make you grin from ear to ear, the final one a half minute going as far to being very funny. None of it's hilarious, but none of it is stoned-face worthy. Pinky is immediately likable and cool, he always is but there is no doubting in The Scarlet Pinkernel his good intentions. The dogs are adorable and also have good comic timing, they are here more colourful than the Little Man. In conclusion, very enjoyable. 8/10 Bethany Cox
