It's a nice try
6 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dietetic Pink doesn't quite work as well as it could've done, but is serviceable enough, a good deal of effort was made and it does show. The animation here isn't particularly great with a lot of the backgrounds looking a little scrappy and while some of the colours are nice others are flat-looking and limited. The Pink Panther cartoons always did have a simple minimal style, which was mostly appealing actually, but from 1976 onwards or so the simplicity veered into simplistic, and Dietetic Pink does fall into that category. The cartoon is never very funny either with nothing standing out, to be fair it is difficult to centre a cartoon around dieting and weight loss and make it funny without exaggerating or offending but sometimes Dietetic Pink did feel too careful. A couple of parts of Dietetic Pink did seem rushed, though the part with the hot-dog and Pinky's resisting temptation while very easy to relate to seemed dragged out at the same time(being repeated three times), and you know the ending is one that you know right from the start. The music while a touch repetitive and not as slinky is very upbeat still and has a lot of energy and the theme tune is a justifiable classic. As said there are some nice colours and the characters are drawn well. Pinky is very cool and has lost none of his likability(though he has been much funnier before), you actually do feel genuinely very sorry for him, and the supporting characters serve their point to the story well. And I did like the idea of the story, anyone can relate to Pinky's situation because almost all of us have been there and some most likely even still are, and it was dealt with sympathetically and remarkably accurately(though as said at times too careful but understandably). In conclusion, could have been done better but it was a nice try. 6/10 Bethany Cox
