5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Inspector classics, no Pink Panther. March 5, 2008
Verified Purchase
Just to clear up the misleading title of this set, the Pink Panther does not appear in these cartoons. It seems that MGM home video felt that nobody would know who The Inspector was, so they had to tag him as one of the Pink Panther's friends.

This cartoon series is historically important, produced in the late 1960's after all but two of the major studios gave up producing new cartoons for the theaters. Friz Freleng (formerly directing for Warner Brothers' Looney Tunes & Merry Melodies) teamed with David DePatie to form a new Animation studio, Depatie-Freleng, after Warner shut its doors. In an ironic twist Warner then contracted with them to continue producing Looney Tunes & Merrie Melodies for theaters!

But around that same time Depatie-Freleng produced an animated title sequence for the first Pink Panther movie. It was so popular that United Artists contracted with them to produce a series of Pink Panther Cartoons. Unlike the title sequence, the Pink Panther was no longer persued by The Inspector.

However, later that year The Inspector got his own theatrical cartoon series, based not on Peter Sellers but on the short, big-nosed character in the title sequences. He was now teamed up with a spanish assistant who joined him in persuing some stylistic villians like a mad bomber who looked like a hairy ink spot, or a three headed black shadow that can take on many forms to conceal itself.

Pat Harrington (who later went on to be the handyman Schneider in ONE DAY AT A TIME) voiced The Inspector, giving a slight impression of Peter Sellers. He was joined by veteran voice actors such as Paul Frees & Larry Storch (Agarn in F TROOP).

5.0 out of 5 stars Be sure to Inspect this DVD! May 15, 2007
The first episode of The Inspector debuted in theaters alongside the James Bond adventure Thunderball in 1965, and fits perfectly with the whole secret agent craze of the 60s. And though each episode was originally released in theaters, the Inspector cartoons also appeared alongside the Pink Panther on Saturday Morning programming for several years.

The character of The Inspector - clearly based on Inspector Clouseau from the Pink Panther films though his name is never given - bumbles his way through case after case with the aid of his trusty sidekick Deux Deux (pronounced Dudu). Deux Duex is Spanish, but somehow has found his way to the French Surete, and a running gag has The Inspector instructing him that he should say "Oui" instead of "Si" all the time.

The Inspector originally faced off against a host of unique villains, including The Blotch, The Mad Bomber, Captain Clamity, and Two-Faced Harry in a grand total of 34 kid-friendly cartoon shorts. Unfortunately, this DVD will only include half of the series (the other half probably being released seperately in a few months' time).

Episodes included are:
- The Great DeGaulle Stone Operation
- Reaux Reaux Reaux Your Boat
- Napolean Blown-Apart
- Cirrhosis of the Louvre
- Plastered in Paris
- Cock-A-Doodle Deux Deux
- Ape Suzette
- Pique Poquette of Paris, The
- Sicque! Sicque! Sicque!
- That's No Lady - That's Notre Dame
- Unsafe and Seine
- Toulouse La Trick
- Sacre Bleu Cross
- Le Quiet Squad
- Bomb Voyage
- Le Pig-Al Patrol
- Le Bowser Bagger

The slapstick shorts in this series represent to me some of the very best to come from the DePatie-Freleng studio (along with The Pink Panther Classic Cartoon Collection).

Very highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL RIGHT!!! WHERE ARE THEY???!!!!! July 31, 2007
I have been waiting a very long time for this particular item to come out on DVD. After the Pink Panther Collection came out, I thought, "Finally! Cartoons I can watch with my kids!" All are highly recommended and I'm hoping that after 'The Inspector', They will release "Mr. Jaws and Tijawana Toads on DVD. I thought that they were sold out online and I went to every store that I could think of to find 'The Inspector' cartoons. Then I found out the release date had been changed. This had better not be some stupid court battle or marketing gimmick of trying to figure out how to bilk the consumer out of more money. These cartoons are timeless. Just like older Disney movies and Peanuts, parents should have the opportunity to share these with their children and grandchildren. It's very selfish of the studios to keep us waiting like this unless this is some sort of emergency. What ever the hold up is, PLEASE get it together. We would very much like to watch these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where is vol.7? September 21, 2010
By Tonya
Verified Purchase
If you are searching for hilarious cartoon this is it. They don't make them like this anymore.For me I find The inspector just as funny as when I watched the cartoon as a child. Where is the rest of the inspector!The inspector and pink panther are my favorite cartoons besides looney tunes. I wonder if I will have to wait 5 years or longer for the release of vol.7?If I am not wrong there are 34 episodes all together of "the inspector".They give you 17 episodes in vol.6.Please release vol.7!

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs to be ALL of the episodes. May 6, 2008

I wish that the episodes of the Pink Panther, Inspector, etc., would have been done by the season instead to be sure that none were missing.

Are There Laughs - Or Not?
I haven't watched the entire disc of The Inspector yet, but of the nine cartoons I've seen, only "Napoleon Blown-Aparte"; "Ape Suzette"; and "Sicque! Sicque! Sicque!" feature laugh tracks.
