The hungry Pink Panther wanders the streets, and while longing for a bite to eat, a little dog bites his tail and refuses to let go, so he has to check into a hospital, where the doctor treats him as just another ill patient. Unhappy to be in the hospital, the panther tries to escape by disguising himself as a nurse and the dog as a baby under a blanket - but the plan fails. Finally the doctor gives him some Formula K-9 Dog Remover medicine, which helps, and the dog lets loose of the tail. Written by jan-wiberg <>

A decent Pink Panther cartoon with two interest points
21 August 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Pink Panther cartoons on the most part are very entertaining, some of them classics and a lot of them good. There are a few disappointing ones but none of them so far have been "bad" to me, even my least favourite (the rather pointless) Pink-In. Therapeutic Pink is another example of being neither the best or worst of the series, ranking it it would be somewhere around lower middle. The animation was a mixed bag here, it's fluid at least and all the characters are well-drawn, to see the Little Man flesh-coloured was one of the interest points, but the backgrounds are rather sparse and hasty-looking and the colours lacking in vibrancy(the number of colours in each scene also kept minimally). As said before the simple, minimalist style was always there in the Pink Panther cartoons but usually in a more colourful and elegant way, this was at the stage where simplicity was close to slightly too simplistic instead and like they were working to tighter deadlines. The pacing at times does lag and starts to get a touch repetitive towards the end. The story is nice enough if predictable, once the Little Man arrived on the scene I kind of know how Therapeutic Pink was going to end, and it was a little stretched, the dog very easily could have let go of Pinky's tail earlier than it did. And the big man in the white clothes but outside of stopping Pinky trying to escape his role was on the pointless side, few Pink Panther supporting characters are even more of a jerk than him either. The music is very beautiful and catchy though with the distinctive jazzy slinkiness, the theme tune is still a classic. Therapeutic Pink also signals the other interest point in that it was the last cartoon to be scored by Walter Greene and Bill Lava. The gags mostly are amusing and well-timed, none hilarious but no obvious misfires even with the repetition. The characters drive Therapeutic Pink very well, Pinky is cool and likable as well as funny and you do feel sorry for him. The dog is really cute in appearance and doesn't come across as too antagonistic. The Little Man is an amusing character and you do have to love his facial expression at the end. In conclusion, not great but decent and also interesting for two aspects with the Little Man and the music. 6/10 Bethany Cox
