Storyline

The Pink Panther takes his camera to the wood, intending to shot animal pictures, but the forest creatures prove as uncooperative as with shooting hunters. A woodpecker systematically cuts off any branch the panther sits on, a frog lures him to the voracious teeth of an alligator, a butterfly onto a log drifting to a high cliff, wasps are their nasty stinging selves. Even when the plagued panther decides to shoot a flower instead, another local makes his all too characteristic mark on the set... Written by KGF Vissers

Amateur photography with the Pink Panther...
29 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

While the story is a little routine and repetitive Pink Pictures is a good Pink Panther cartoon, and I found it an improvement on the previous cartoon Therapeutic Pink and almost all the 1976 cartoons. The animation is one of the improvements with the exception of the under-sized and scrappily down cliff top and an animal that I wasn't sure whether it was meant to be a big dog or a bear. The colours are warmer and livelier(bigger variety too) and the backgrounds while simple are detailed and not sparse. The theme tune is still timeless and Steve De Patie's music is a worthy replacement for Walter Greene and Bill Lava, it's not as subtle or as slinky but it sure has a lot of energy and wasn't too overbearing. The visual gags aren't the most original- like with the wood pecker- and the outcomes are not surprising(apart from perhaps the frog and alligator gag) but are very funny and it was nice to see a variety of animals rather than just one character battling Pinky. Pinky oozes coolness and likability, and he has great comic timing without even saying a word, you do feel sympathy towards him as well. The animals are good foils too. In conclusion, not mind-blowing and not among the best Pink Panther cartoons but a good one and better than the previous cartoons and the 1976 entries which are still watchable. 8/10 Bethany Cox
