Mediocre battle between the Pink Panther and a toy duck
29 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While a lot of the Pink Panther cartoons are very enjoyable, the series post-1975 got hit-and-miss and saw a fair share of just average cartoons and some mediocre, of which 1979's Pink Quackers for me was one of the mediocre ones.

Pink Quackers does contain some bright, vibrant colours, while the animation, like most of the post-1975 Pink Panther cartoons, is not that appealing on the most part it's not all horrible either. Pinky is cool, suave and likable, he has been funnier before with stronger material but he still amuses and his antics are not too mean-spirited. The theme tune is still a classic and one that has lost none of its appeal, and the ending is quite sweet.

As said, the animation is not that appealing, compared to the 1964-1971 Pink Panther output the colours are mostly harsher and more garish, the drawing is much less elegant and rather than charmingly simple the backgrounds are sparsely detailed and quite scrappy. The music, aside from the theme tune, is rather repetitive, both rushed-sounding and pedestrian and lacks the subtle jazzy slinkiness of the earlier Pink Panther cartoons, pretty in-your-face actually. The story is one of the most repetitiously formulaic of the series and a bit hastily paced, the toy duck is a little annoying even for a character meant to be and the chemistry between him and Pinky not as sharp or as amusing as it could have been and Pink Quackers raises the occasional wry smile but is not very funny, due to the timing not being sharp enough and the gags being very predictable.

Overall, passable but mediocre. 4/10 Bethany Cox
