A very entertaining Pink Panther cartoon that while not one of the classics is to me one of the better ones pro-1975(a point where the series started to get a little hit-and-miss). Don't expect much new from the story, though actually the ending was a nice surprise, but to be honest that is true for a lot of the Pink Panther cartoons and they still manage to be fun regardless. Some of the backgrounds though are a little flatly coloured and simplistically drawn, the series also did have a simple animation style that was part of its charm but some of the backgrounds here in Pink Trumpet did look a touch scrappy (still better than those from some of the 1976 cartoons though). And the cartoon does take a little too long to set up, at first it felt like I was watching a different Pink Panther cartoon. There are some nice vibrant colours though and the characters are very well-modelled especially Pinky. The music is still very rhythmically driven and slinky while also energetic, the pre-1975 cartoons had more subtle scoring and while the compositional style is very different the scoring has its charms still. Pinky's practising music was quite catchy rhythmically. Pink Trumpet is crisply paced and while it's a scenario that has been done a fair few times the gags are very funny, especially the one with the Little Man trying to fill the trumpet with water from the hose (some very clever character animation on Pinky can be seen in this gag). The ending was surprising too, and actually despite what Wikipedia says Pink Trumpet didn't to me feel like a partial remake of Pink Tuba Dore, similar scenario with a role reversal maybe- with Little Man being disturbed rather than Pinky- but the pacing here is different (not quite as energised) and has a notable absentee in the dog. Pinky is as ever likable and amusing and you do have to feel sorry for the Little Man in a situation where pretty much anybody would in a way be rooting for him seeing as a lot of people have been through it. In conclusion, very entertaining. 8/10 Bethany Cox
