The panther drops a coin while walking on the street, and it falls down a sewer. He buys a strong magnet, attempting to use it to get the coin back. Unfortunately, the magnet rips off anything metallic he passes by, including the watch from a man at a bus stop and the whistle, badge and uniform buttons from a policeman, and the panther gets in trouble with the law. When the panther finally gets back to the sewer, another man pulls up the coin with his own magnet. Written by jan-wiberg <>

Of the 1979 Pink Panther cartoons, Pink Pull is the best of them
19 August 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The 1979 Pink Panther cartoons are very much a mixed bag. Toro Pink and Pink in the Woods are flawed but decent (the latter being the best of the batch prior to seeing this), but Pink Breakfast, Pink Quackers and String Along in Pink were underwhelming (though with their good points) due to looking and sounding cheap, not being very funny and having slack timing. Pink Pull as of now is the best of them.

Pink Pull is not without its flaws. The animation in pretty much all of the later (post-1975) Pink Panther cartoons was not that great, sadly, while the best-looking of the 1979 cartoons, that is the case here as well in Pink Pull. Pinky and his expressions are fine and there are some inventive visuals in the gags, but the colours lack vibrancy, backgrounds are scrappy and sparse with little detail and most of the characters look rushed. Also don't think much about the music, while the theme tune and that it's incorporated more are great, the same cannot be said for the rest of the music, which is basically themes recycled from the 1976-1978 cartoons and used over and over in a very loud and hasty-sounding manner. None of it fits, it was in need of more subtlety as well as energy like the slinky elegance of the earlier cartoons, instead it goes against Pinky's characteristics rather than add to them like the scoring of the early outings did so brilliantly. The story is formulaic and does feel rushed at times.

One cannot deny though that the theme tune is a classic, and still has immense appeal even after hearing it umpteen times (not all theme tunes have that kind of staying power). Pink Pull is along with Pink in the Woods the most consistent of the 1979 cartoons in the humour department, the gags range from amusing to hilarious and are well-timed without repeating themselves too much. The inventive visuals in them help make them funnier than they are. Pinky is very well drawn and expressively animated, has lost none of his suavity or likability and manages to be funny even without a word being said, while the magnet is strong support and the secondary characters are amusingly indignant.

In conclusion, decent fun, though not up to the standards of the best or classic Pink Panther cartoons, and the best of the 6 1979 Pink Panther cartoons so far. 7/10 Bethany Cox
