Watch The Pink Panther

The Pink Panther television show, or the Pink Panther and Friends was a highly successful animated cartoon series. At the central story is an highly intelligence, adventuresome, heroic, and morally deep cartoon character, the Pink Panther. He has the combined instincts of a jungle panther, pink fur of the psychedelic variety, and the mannerisms not unlike an English blue-blood aristocrat.

The Pink Panther television series ran from 1969 - 1976 in reel time, but most of the episodes were created during the first year of production. Many notable stars did voice over work for the show. The Pink Panther himself only talks during the ending of an episode that is a parody of Noah's Ark. In the final scene, the Pink Panther makes the statement, "Why can't man be more like animals."

This is the overall demeanor of the Pink Panther. He is never rude, does not easily become flustered, or barely even angry. Despite the way that he finds humans to act constantly, as they try to capture, threaten, or disrupt his world. He generally tries to make the best of bad situations, given the opportunity.

Episodes of the Pink Panther show have a three part structure. Two are always about the Pink Panther himself, the third being about the Inspector Clouseau, who is an odd, awkward, and determined French policeman. The Inspector has some less than helpful assistance from Sergeant Deux-Deux, and together they are under the command of Surete Commissioner. The two law enforcers battle the various foes, criminals, and villains that come their way.

These stories intertwine and are part of the legend that is the Pink Panther animated series, one of the great landmarks and cartoon achievements in television history. Today the Pink Panther is from a unique animated cartoon era, before the advent of digital imagery or computerized animation software. It also has a decidedly jazz oriented soundtrack that is a classic unto itself.
