Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A popular cartoon series, and the last theatrical one created during The Golden Age of Animation.The Animated Credits Opening of The Pink Panther visualized the pink, panther-shaped flaw in the titular diamond as an actual pink panther in an opening sequence created by DePatie-Freleng Enterprises. The credit sequence was so popular that besides becoming the Series Mascot of the live-action film series, the Pink Panther was given his own series of animated shorts.The newly founded DePatie-Freleng studio's first short, "The Pink Phink," won the 1964 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Subject — the first time an animation studio had won one with its very first cartoon. Subsequent shorts put the Panther in situations ranging from the mundane to the fantastic, always with Henry Mancini's popular theme music somewhere in the score. Most of the shorts were silent, save for gibberish, sound effects, and music; attempts to give the Panther a voice were washes.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })(The German translation of the series, however, featured an ever-present, rhymed voice-over reminiscent of Wilhelm Busch's work, spoken by the German voice of Sean Connery. It was also only in this dub that the Panther was given a name: Paul. But more often than not, the cutsey version "Paulchen" was used.)Along with the Panther's shorts, DePatie-Freleng established a sister series in The Inspector, shorts inspired by the Breakout Character of the live-action films, Inspector Clouseau. The Inspector in these shorts, voiced by Pat Harrington, was more competent than his movie counterpart, though still prone to bad judgement calls, and was the general Butt-Monkey of the series even when he did succeed in the end.Compare other, similar cartoon series produced by DePatie-Freleng: The Ant and the Aardvark, The Dogfather (a canine-focused spoof of The Godfather), Misterjaw, Roland and Rattfink, Sheriff Hoot Kloot, and Tijuana Toads.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The Pink Panther is notable as the last great theatrical shorts character, with shorts that ran through The Dark Age of Animation all the way up through 1977, a decade or more after Disney and Looney Tunes and all the other great theatrical cartoon studios had gone out of business. Even after the shorts were made specifically for television, they were still released to theaters in the early 1980s. After that, he became the focus of new, TV-only productions. ABC aired three half-hour animated specials over 1978-81: A Pink Christmas, Olym-pinks, and Pink at First Sight. The Pink Panther and Sons, a co-production between Hanna-Barbera and DePatie-Freleng, aired in The '80s. Despite getting top billing the show focused mainly on the adventures of the Panther's two children, Pinky and Panky and their friends, the Rainbow Panthers. The New Pink Panther Show ran in syndication from 1993-95, and thus far is the only incarnation that gave the Panther a proper voice at all times, provided by Matt Frewer; the Little Man was also voiced full-time here (Wallace Shawn doing the work there), and many of the other DePatie-Freleng characters- the Ant and the Aardvark (both reprised by John Byner), the Inspector, and the Dogfather- appeared too, alongside both the Panther and new characters like Voodoo Man. Pink Panther and Pals ran in 2010 on Cartoon Network. A Very Pink Christmas was a 2011 half-hour Christmas Special.The character also starred in a few video games. Pink Panther (1988) Amiga, Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, MSX Pink Goes to Hollywood (1993) SNES, Genesis Pink Panther's Passport to Peril (1996) PC Pink Panther: Hokus Pokus Pink (1998) PC, Sequel to Passport to Peril Pink Panther: Pinkadelic Pursuit (2002) PlayStation, Game Boy Advance, PCHas a character sheet.

 The Pink Panther / int_25b4ad2f
comment
Surprisingly Happy Ending: "Pinkerella". Not the happy ending of Cinderella and Pelvis, which could halfway be expected and is fair to the tale. But at the end the witch who lost her wand and Pink dish out a magic fight, no holds barred, until, completely unexpected, the witch turns into a gorgeous - surely up par with Vampirellas sidekick in feline hawtness - pantheress, and they fly off on the broom into the moonset.

comment
Recycled Soundtrack: The music in "Dial 'P' For Pink" was also the opening credits theme to A Shot in the Dark, which would be remixed and re-used in The Inspector. Every cartoon from 1967 through 1977 recycled music from the 1964-1966 cartoons. It wasn't until 1978 that the series got some new music tracks.

"Scooby-Doo" Hoax: Played with in "A Werewolf in Panther's Clothing." There's a werewolf terrifying a Transylvania-style village, and the Pink Panther (a dog catcher in this one) has been sent to capture the werewolf. It turns out to really be a small gypsy thief in a Full-Body Disguise attempting to scare everyone away so he can rob the village bank, but it turns out to be a blood bank, and the rest of the villagers turn out to really be vampires.

Downer Ending
 The Pink Panther / int_4e3d253b
comment
Downer Ending: Quite a few of the episodes. Some of the most memorable: Pink Sphinx: Pink enters a shrine and emerges cursed to morph into different animals every few seconds. While trying to kill a fly in Pink S.W.A.T., he is swallowed alive by a vacuum cleaner, which then sucks up the entire scenery and finally itself. "Pinkcome Tax" combines this with The Bad Guy Wins. The tax collector's goons successfully stop Pink from springing Big Nose out of debtor's prison. When Robin Hood shows up to rescue them, the guards immediately toss him into the cell, too. After spending an entire episode cleaning up a polluted city as punishment for littering, a Tickertape Parade is thrown in his honor - after which he is forced to clean up the city again. And then there's Pink Panzer, where a dispute between Pink and his neighbor over the Panther's borrowed lawnmower escalates into a full-fledged military battle. And then it's revealed that the offscreen voice that's been goading on both sides is The Devil himself.

Pest Episode: In "Pink Pest Control", this overlaps with Termite Trouble: the Pink Panther tries to stop a termite that is eating all of the wooden objects in his log cabin home. He tries hitting it with an axe, setting a mousetrap (baited with a toothpick) and a flyswatter, but nothing works. The termite finally eats through the log cabin and causes it to collapse. The episode ends with the Pink Panther forcing the termite to help him rebuild it at gunpoint.

Time Bomb: "The Pink Package Plot" involves a terrorist forcing the Panther to deliver a ticking package containing such a bomb to an estate before twelve noon, or he will be shot. But an Angry Guard Dog keeps preventing the Panther from getting into the estate to deliver the package. In another attempt to evade the dog, the Panther accidentally drops the package from the sky into an open manhole, where it floats down the sewer line, and just as the clock strikes twelve, the bomb explodes right under the manhole the terrorist is standing on, sending him flying into the estate yard where the guard dog chases him away!

comment
Been There, Shaped History: A double whammy when the Panther visits Leonardo da Vinci. Who for whatever reasons draws Mona Lisa with a big frown. Pink can't stand that and improves the art. Leonardo gets so mad by the constant interfering that he gives the Pisa Tower a kick.

Inconvenient Darkroom Illumination
 The Pink Panther / int_9ca738e9
comment
Inconvenient Darkroom Illumination: The current page image comes from "Doctor Pink". Here, Pink Panther works as a janitor in a hospital, and enters the darkroom to clean up just as Big Nose is developing an x-ray photo, thus ruining the photo. Pink, oblivious to his mistake, keeps dusting the place off, and even takes the now completely black X-ray and dusts off the black, leaving Big Nose with a white sheet of paper. In "Smile Pretty, Say Pink", the Pink Panther mistakes flashbulbs for eggs, and devours a dozen of them. Then, whenever he hiccups, Pink lights up. Terrified of his plight, Pink runs into a photographers' darkroom. There, he hiccups, lights up, and runs away, leaving Big Nose with ruined film.

You Don't Look Like You
 The Pink Panther / int_a4e3759e
comment
You Don't Look Like You: The Dogfather looks totally different compared to his 1970s version. The difference could be described as the difference between a 70's stereotypical Don who was as smooth and sophisticated as The Godfather and the more crass and uncouth modern stereotype.

Variable Mix
 The Pink Panther / int_b06ff73b
comment
Variable Mix: Non-gaming example. The background theme would add in a spooky-sounding theremin during the handful of horror-themed shorts. For instance, "Pink Panic" uses the theremin as instrumental backing whenever the ghost character appears onscreen, while the skeleton is represented by a tinkling xylophone.

And then there's Pink Panzer, where a dispute between Pink and his neighbor over the Panther's borrowed lawnmower escalates into a full-fledged military battle. And then it's revealed that the offscreen voice that's been goading on both sides is The Devil himself.

No More for Me: In "Pink Pajamas", while looking for a place to sleep, the Panther finds his way into a house, who owner turns out to be drunkard. After seeing the Panther several times, he calls his A.A sponsor, who convinces him to give up alcohol. After finding and throwing out his entire alcohol stash, the two celebrate with a glass of milk...when they see the Pink Panther walk by. This results in them chasing after the garbage truck that took the alcohol bottles.

Domestic Appliance Disaster

Domestic Appliance Disaster: Pink once lay upon an ironing board, and ironed his tummy fur. The phone rings, and Pink answers it, leaving the hot iron to burn its way completely through his body and the ironing board to tumble onto the floor. Pink hops to his feet and regards the triangular hole in his midsection. Amazingly, it seems neither to hurt nor to debilitate him, being nothing worse than unsightly.

Interactive Narrator: Three animated shorts from 1965 featured this, such as "Shocking Pink," "Pinkfinger" and "Pink Panzer," the latter of which reveals at the end that the Devil was the Narrator All Along. This was early in the series, and is now seen as an instance of Early Installment Weirdness.
