Pixel Pinkie is an Australian animated TV series that first aired on August 29, 2009. The show is about Nina, a red headed 12-year-old girl who gets a new cell phone for her birthday, which happens to have a pink genie named Pixel Pinkie who is prone to interpreting things the wrong way.
Why It Sucks
Warning: Don't put in anything about Vyond, as it is common for people to compare this show’s animation to Vyond.
- It has low framerate and cheap flash animation. The backgrounds and animation suffer the worst.
- The premise is somewhat too similar of The Fairly OddParents as it has the same concept about a kid who receives an ordinary item that summons/transforms into a magical being who grants wishes usually to deal with the protagonist's problems, only to get out of hand and the person wishes things to go back to normal.
- It also feels kinda like a Johnny Test clone as well.
- Bad voice acting that requires more work. Pixel Pinkie sounds like Strawberry Shortcake with a bad Australian accent, and Nina sounds like a grown woman, when she is just a kid. Many Australian cartoons suffer the problem when it comes to voicing a young girl with a grown woman voice.
- Plothole: How did Nina get that phone for her birthday in the main plot, but in the very first episode "Meeting Pixel Pinkie" she buys the phone because other kids in school have one?
- In one episode, Nina's new dress design copied the dress design for Suzi. This explains that the crew behind this show are very lazy, not bothering to draw a new design for Nina.
- If not lazy, the character designs look too similar to other characters from different cartoons for example: One of Suzi’s friends, Nicki, looks an awful lot like Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls, look at her design!
- Bad Ending: Both Nina and Anni are simply just transported back to Nina's room after Pinkie was saying goodbye. What happened? Did Nina learn to accept Pixel Pinkie's departure and move on? It just cuts to the credits after Nina and Anni are transported back to Nina's room, injured!
- Very unlikeable characters, such as Suzi, who's the clichéd Alpha Bitch.
- Catchy soundtrack (including the theme song).
- Pixel Pinkie's design looks cute, and possibly the only likable character.
- Anytime Suzi is called out for her actions, it's bound to be satisfactory.
- If animation is cheap, even by 2009 standards, it's surprisingly good and looks perfectly fluid.
- Some episodes are well structured.
