Bully for Pink is the 14th cartoon produced in the Pink Panther series. A total of 124 6-minute cartoons were produced between 1964 and 1980.


The Pink Panther wants to become a toreador, but a swarm of moths eat his cloak. Then when he gives up, he sees Marvelo the Magician. The Panther borrows Marvelo's cloak, and has trouble with outsmarting the bull, and a crabby magic rabbit inside the cape. The panther accidentally splits the bull in two. When the bull runs into the cape, the rabbit leaves the cape, and the bull gets his behind back. Then the swarm of moths return, and eat the Pink Panther's cape one more time, making it spell "THE END".

Production notes[edit]

Bully for Pink is a partial remake of the Looney Tunes film Bully for Bugs; it was remade in 1979 as Toro Pink.[1]

The Pink Panther Show contained a laugh track when the Pink Panther cartoons were broadcast on NBC-TV. Most American broadcasts currently air with the laugh track muted; however, Bully for Pink airs with the original laugh track intact on the France-based Channel Gulli.
