Storyline

The Pink Panther is in Egypt on an expedition to uncover a buried cave containing ancient treasures, and he has only enough money to purchase a tiny camel that can't carry the load of tools that the Pink Panther has and that resists all the panther's attempts to force it to do so. The Pink Panther must carry the load himself, with the camel on top! X marks the spot, and the Pink Panther digs and finds the cave, which is blocked by a huge boulder. His first attempt to dynamite the boulder is foiled by the camel, who brings the lit dynamite to the panther for it to explode in their faces. The Pink Panther ties the camel to a stake and lights more dynamite that obliterates the boulder and gives the Pink Panther access to the cave, but when he enters, he is cursed and metamorphoses into a series of bizarre creatures as he attempts to remove a large gem.

Delightful
21 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Apart from an abrupt ending(though it's also a funny one), Pink Sphinx is a winner all round and one of the better 1968 Pink Panther cartoons. It is vibrantly and crisply animated, as well as being effective in its simplicity. You can't go wrong either with the jazzy orchestral score and iconic theme tune. The gags are cleverly timed and hilarious throughout, as well as being one of the better 1968 Pink Panther cartoons Pink Sphinx also has to be one of the funniest. The story is exciting and adventurous, not as routine as some other Pink Panther cartoons certainly. Pinky is cool and likable with great comic timing and the little camel is both funny and adorable.

All in all, a delightful Pink Panther cartoon. 9/10 Bethany Cox
