This one's a keeper

This show is absolutely hilarious. As a fan of the original Pink Panther, I can tell you this has the same charm as the original. The new Ant and the Aardvark shorts are just okay, but the new Pink Panther shorts are the funniest thing I've ever seen. Big Nose's tantrums are hilarious, and this show has funny spoofs like the Star Wars spoof in "Remotely Pink" and the Pac Man spoof in "Pinxillated Pink" that are enough to make you burst out laughing and rolling on the floor. I don't know why some people complain about this, it's a fantastic reboot that stays true to the original as well as having a charm of its own. And the removal of smoking makes it appropriate for all ages.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (11 ):

While purists might argue against messing with such an iconic show as The Pink Panther, in fact this modern-day version is sure to win a new generation of fans for the rosy feline and his equally colorful co-stars, due in a large part to its adherence to the show's traditions. Kids will be struck by the silent acting of the Pink Panther shorts (which account for two-thirds of the show) and the simple style of the Ant and Aardvark, both of which are contrast to the flash and noise of many of today's cartoons.

As for content, the show's humorous style ensures that the cartoon violence won't faze most kids, so there's little worry there. While the series makes no effort to impart lasting messages on its young viewers, it's equally short on the bad stuff, making it a refreshing change of pace for kids.
