Pink Panther Classic Cartoon Collection - 5 DVD Set

by Wootbot

Da-Dut Da-Dooo…

We heard that unmistakable bass riff. We came running to the TV. We thrilled to the slinky, witty opening credits. And then, when it had barely begun, it ended in disappointment.

At least, it did for those of us too young to appreciate Peter Sellers. These days there’s always a cartoon somewhere on TV, so today’s cable-ready kids will never understand that peculiar phenomenon of

pantherus interruptus

, of being teased by the animated intro to a Pink Panther movie only to be let down by the incomprehensible, live-action, grown-up comedy that followed.

But of course, there were Pink Panther cartoons. 124 of them, made for theatrical release and TV. And they’re all here, in a slick package packed with enough pink for both your disappointed inner child and your Pink Panther-deprived actual child. There’s the Oscar-winning 1964 debut, The Pink Phink, and the Oscar-nominated 1966 short, The Pink Blueprint. There are the only two cartoons where the Pink Panther speaks, both from 1965. There are some of the later made-for-TV cheapo ones that aren’t all that great but hey, why bother with a box set if you don’t include everything?

And best of all, yes: the five animated opening sequences from the Pink Panther movies are here, too. And this time, you can watch them without fear of losing your pink cartoon buzz.
