Storyline

In the year 2001 ½, the Pink Panther is a gas station attendant on a small planet. When a particularly dangerous-looking spaceship arrives, the panther panics and closes his station, which makes the green little pointy-nosed man flying the ship furious. The panther tries to elude the man and his search robot by all possible means, even evaporating himself in a molecular disassembler and reassembling himself in another. The man does the same, but the panther throws a flower into the reassembler, which turns the man into part flower. Written by jan-wiberg <JanWibergE@netscape.net>

2001 1/2: A Pink Panther Odyssey
12 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Of the 1978 batch of Pink Panther cartoons Star Pink is around top middle, and ranks around solid middle for the Pink Panther cartoons overall. Good fun, but not a Pink Panther classic.

Star Pink is well-scored on the whole, not amazing but it sounds good at least and it fits. The music is not as slinky or as seductive as the pre-1975 Pink Panther cartoons. But it, while slightly repetitive, is energetic, very catchy and less in-your-face thankfully than other post-1975 Pink Panther cartoons, sometimes music was too loud or too rushed-sounding around this period but Star Pink is not so bad. Henry Mancini's theme tune is a timeless classic, one that doesn't annoy no matter how many times it's heard. While there are funnier Pink Panther cartoons about, Star Pink still has a very entertaining second half and the pace becomes more efficient here as well. The story has an imaginative scenario for the Pink Panther and while formula-wise it's standard, the scenario and the space setting is used to great effect, some of the space visuals are quite imaginative. Pinky is as cool and likable as ever and his comic timing is strong, even when not saying a word, while the space villain serves as a decent adversary.

The animation here isn't so great, not horrible due to some imaginative space visuals and some brightly vibrant colours but the drawings do lack smoothness and elegance and parts do look sparse in detail. Not the first post-1975 Pink Panther cartoon to have this problem and not the worst affected(a lot of them looked as if they were made in a hurry and on a lower budget to before), but I miss the simple but elegant and softer look of the pre-1975 Pink Panther cartoons. Star Pink is also a case of the second half being better than the first, which takes a little too long to set up and the humour is stronger in the second half.

All in all, good fun but not the Pink Panther series at its best. 7/10 Bethany Cox
