Pinky was a plump fox who favors golf. He was also Chanticleer's manager in the city. It was revealed later in the movie that he was secretly working for the Grand Duke of Owls. His job was to ensure that Chanticleer never felt the compulsion to return home by convincing him that his friends hate him, making it easy to profit off of Chanticleer's singing skills.
Role in Film
Pinky calling the Duke, who hires him by making an offer to kill Edmond, Chanticleer and the main animals
Pinky revealing himself as the Grand Duke's right-hand man
He is played by Sorrell Booke which was also his last film role before his retirement and death in 1994
His character is similar to Professor Z who secretly works for his boss Miles Axelrod in "Cars 2".
He loves to play golf.
He has a hench frog named Max and a hench monkey named Murray.
He lives in Las Vegas.
Pinky is much like the Sheriff of Nottingham in the similar movie Robin Hood. Both are overwieght mean canines who speak with a Southern Accent, have their own henchmen (Pinky-Toads The Sheriff-Arrowman), Have rhinos working for them (though the Sheriff had a herd while Pinky had just one), work for the main antagonist, and abuse their sidekicks (Pinky-Murray Sheriff-Vultures). Also the Sheriff's undergarments are pink like Pinky's shirt.
After watching Chanticler escape it is unknown what became of Pinky, but it very likely he went bankrupt as he said he was ruined. It is also possible his water tower collapsed on him.
Besides talking on the phone, Pinky and the Grand Duke of Owls actually make a brief screen appearance together in Edmond's Mind while Edmond is driving Pinky's car.
Like the Grand Duke of Owls he abuses his closest helper Pinky-Murray the Grand Duke-Hunch.
