5.0 out of 5 stars Great that the studio released these 3 specials! December 6, 2007
Format:DVD
It was surprisingly thoughtful of MGM to release the other two Pink Panther TV Specials here on this DVD along with "A Pink Christmas"! It's not obvious from the cover or the DVD info listed that all three Pink Panther TV Specials are on this disc, but they indeed are. "A Pink Christmas" which aired on ABC Dec 7, 1978; "Olym-Pinks" which aired on ABC Feb 22, 1980; and "Pink At First Sight" which aired on ABC May 10, 1981 were all approximately 25 minutes in length. "A Pink Christmas" was adapted from a 1906 O. Henry short story called 'The Cop and the Anthem' (credited in the cartoon) and is a wonderful 'haves and have-nots' type story that makes a perfect adaptation to the world of the Pink Panther - it's not an exact re-telling, the character in the short story is trying to get into jail so he can be warm and have food, while the Panther is on a quest for food, but he does try at one point to get into a jail. "Olym-Pinks" capitalized on the 1980 Winter Olympics that were held in Lake Placid, New York that year, and is a series of very competitive olympic games played between Panther and the 'little man' (as the animators referred to him). And "Pink At First Sight", although aired in May of '81, is essentially a Valentine's Day story. The studio could easily have only released the Christmas special and charged the same amount, but they used some foresight and gave we 'completists' a bonus with the other two TV Specials. While not having the 'classic-ness' (for lack of a better word) of the 1960s Panther cartoons, the specials are fun, and clearly the Christmas special is the highlight of the DVD and easily worth the price in and of itself. I remember when it first aired (I was 9) and it didn't really repeat all that often over the years. And as a fan of animation, it's cool to actually have it on DVD after nearly 30 years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pink Panther Punts (a little) November 29, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First - the Christmas portion of this DVD is only 24 minutes of the running length of the feature. I thought I was getting a "movie" for the kids but this seems to be either a 30 minute episode or Christmas special. If you have older pink panther DVDs from the 60s and the early 70s you will be disappointed by the animation quality (which on this DVD is crude simplistic 80's cartoon styling) and by the story line in general - especially how the Pink Panther behaves - he is not his usual suave self. Yes - the Pink Panther has been on hard times in other of his cartoons but he manages to get out of the situation quicker and slicker without the use of Deus ex machina... but I digress. Second - the bonus cartoons were just as crude and even less interesting - in fact I am afraid to ask what my kids thought of the DVD in general - perhaps I will be able to judge by the amount of repeat viewings. Are you dying for good Pink Panther - please buy the "The Pink Panther Classic Cartoon Collection" and watch the episodes from the 60s.

4.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT PINK CHRISTMAS December 14, 2007
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD because I am A big Pink Panther fan. I have slowly made my kids to like him and other of the classic cartoons. This dvd is not as good as the collection of all the shorts but it is a great add on if you want the whole collection of cartoons since these cartoons are not included with the box set. It Is great that it includeds the Valentine special and the special Olym-Pinks I believe all of the classics are now avaliabe on DVD.The Pink Panther - A Pink Christmas

Format:DVD
The Pink Panther (as in the cartoon character)'s 1978 Christmas Special saw its official release on DVD in November of 2007.
When I first bought this DVD in late 2007, I was familiar with the Christmas special which I had on VHS but was on last legs and I had seen Pink at First Sight online but hadn't seen Olym-Pinks at all. Before I thought of buying it, at first I was like $14 for only 24 minutes but I was shocked and ecstatic at the same time that MGM/20th Century Fox decided to release the two subsequent Pink Panther TV Specials (1980's Olym-Pinks and 1981's masterpiece Pink at First Sight) on the same DVD as well. All specials were 25 or so minutes in length so almost 80 minutes of The Pink Panther's late 1970s/early 1980s TV specials.
"A Pink Christmas" first debuted on ABC (US ABC not the Australian counterpart) on December 7, 1978 and was adapted from the old 1906 O. Henry short story called 'The Cop and the Anthem' (makes mention of it in the opening credits) and is a wonderful lesson in counting in what you can have and cannot have in life and being grateful for it. The classic story makes a perfect adaptation to the world of the Pink Panther cartoon character. It's cold and Christmas time and the beloved pink cat is cold and has no food and will go at any costs to have food and shelter for Christmas. In the original book, the character in the short story was trying to get into prison so he can be warm and have food for Christmas. There is one scene where the panther to get himself arrested but requests ignored but all things end merrily at the end.
Then we go over a year and two months later to February of 1980 for Olym-Pinks (also originally aired on ABC).
