Storyline

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.

Trivia

The character of The Inspector is based upon Inspector Jacques Clouseau. It has been noted that the animated character owes more to Alan Arkin's portrayal in the then-recent Inspector Clouseau (1968) than to Peter Sellers. See more »

Way Better Than Most Cartoons Nowadays, Especially Anime
24 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

The Pink Panther is such a great cartoon. You may know him for one special feature: silence. I thought it was brilliant that they made this cartoon almost never speak in this series (there are just two exceptions). Like the creators said, many more cartoons talked than moved, but the Pink Panther did nothing but move. That's what makes this cartoon so unique. Another good reason is that without talking, it's kind of peaceful in one way: no talking, no swearing.

This is definitely a great show for anyone, both kids and adults, to watch, since it isn't one of those crude cartoons made nowadays, and is supposedly in a European-American style, which as some of the best types of animation that I know, not Japanese that's infused with violence and vulgarity and insidious artwork. But this is different, being more peaceful and even more funny than what with most of what you see nowadays, like Spongebob and Ed, Edd, Eddy (yes definitely).

I did watch some of the videos and a DVD with excellent episodes (although some were a bit disappointing, preferably if someone had the last laugh against the Pink Panther, but most of the others are still very well done in writing and artwork). Still, if you can find it anywhere in good condition, I highest recommend it!
