Sink Pink © DePatie-Freleng

In ‘Sink Pink’ a Texan hunter builds an ark to lure the animals of the savannah into it.

Sink Pink is the Pink Panther’s fifth film and the first to use dialogue. Unfortunately it’s a bad addition. The Texan hunter’s constant jabbering distracts from the pantomime humor. In the end even the Pink Panther himself speaks, which is even a worse idea. Nevertheless, ‘Sink Pink’ is noteworthy because it’s also the first film in which the Pink Panther shows his unique walk.

Watch ‘Sink Pink’ yourself and tell me what you think:
