Storyline

The Pink Panther, reading a super-hero comic, fancies himself becoming a cape-and-tights-garbed crusader and takes the essential garments from a clothesline to become Super-Pink! Super-Pink's well-intentioned efforts to help an elderly lady only result in calamity. While trying to rescue the lady's cat from a tree, Super-Pink chainsaws through the tree trunk, and the falling tree demolishes the lady's house. His attempt to save her from tripping over a lump in the carpet outside of a supermarket by pulling the lump out of the carpet causes the entire carpet to shift position, and the lady falls, dropping all of her groceries. When Super-Pink comes to aid the lady on a steep road by replacing her flat front tire, he jack-lifts the car's front and releases it to careen down a hill and into the path of a train. The battered and bruised lady goes to a phone booth and turns into a super-woman to attack the troublesome panther with an uprooted traffic light. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

A fine line between fantasy and reality
12 May 2010 | by blooutcastSee all my reviews

Admit it… as a kid, you sometimes had trouble distinguishing fact from fiction. Even into adulthood the line is sometimes too blurry. That's the case for Pinky here. He's so inspired by a Super Guy comic that he just has to try and emulate him. The problem here is that his choice of "damsel in distress" isn't particularly impressed with his efforts. In almost all scenes featuring her, the elderly lady ends up being the butt of his woeful attempts to emulate his fictitious idol. (One exception: a muscular thug's gun goes off on him when he can't wrestle it away.) The very last scene, where she transforms into a caped fighter of her own and chases the stupefied feline with an uprooted traffic post, is a perfect example of how and why intentions are considered less important than results to anyone who is collateral damage in any act of misconduct.

Luckily, if you can get past the speech component, the 1993 television version features a far more competent version of the crime-fighting panther.
