The Pink Panther is a heroic, moral cartoon cat with pink fur and the manners of an English aristocrat. He only becomes flustered or angry at obtuse or offensive humans who try to disrupt his existence, or at troublesome gadgets, rodents, or insects. In most of his cartoons, he stumbles into a difficult situation and stoically endeavors to make the best of it. Episodes of this series feature three theatrical cartoons, two with the Pink Panther, and one featuring the Inspector, a cartoon version of the accident-prone, bumbling French detective, Inspector Clouseau, played in movies by Peter Sellers. The Inspector is often assisted by a Spanish gendarme, Sergeant Deux-Deux, and together they fallibly battle villains of all shapes and sizes in various parts of the world, always on the orders of the long-suffering Surete Commissioner.

Just like Mister Magoo, the Pink Panther is yet another cartoon character who I find I don't like all that much. I certainly don't hate this pink pussycat, but, I find his one-note personality strikes me as being pretty "blah!" most of the time.
And, on top of that - The situations that the Pink Panther was placed into in these cartoons seemed, quite often, to end on an unsatisfactory note. To me, most of these "toons" came across like unfinished stories and that, for the most part, just didn't sit very well with me.
This Pink Panther collection is a 5-disc set containing 124 cartoons in all from the years between 1964-1980.
Most of these animated shorts were directed, and/or produced, by Friz Freleng, who was a notable animator/director for Warner Bros. Studios some years earlier.
These "limited animation" cartoons are somewhat unique in that they contain virtually no dialogue, whatsoever.
