The Pink Panther Cartoon Collec
The seven-and-a-half-minute animated title sequence for the 1963 feature film The Pink Panther was such a success that it spawned a very popular cartoon series. This marvelous collection of eight DePatie-Freleng classics comes to DVD as a companion to four of the Pink Panther films. Included is the very first short, "The Pink Pfink," which won an Oscar for Best Animated Short Subject in 1964. With its minimalist design and cool attitude, the Pink Panther became a Saturday morning phenomenon. With more than 175 shorts to choose from, too bad this collection is so sparse. Also, it would've been nice if some of the color elements had been restored. They're a little too pink at times. --Bill Desowitz

Unless as a kid it took very little to amuse me, I have to assume that the remaining 6 cartoons do not even remotely account for being among the average quality episodes of the entire Pink Panther franchise. The first cartoon "In the Pink of the Night" is the far distant second "best" episode here except for the very irritating canned laughter track throughout. This canned laughter track is also present in a couple of the other even weaker episodes. The title episode for the dvd, "Jet Pink" is actually the worst cartoon here! The picture and animation quality is so poor that it can only be described as being just a little better than Disney's "Steamboat Willie" days.
Other episodes such as "Pet Pink Pebbles" and "Pink Blueprint" are just plain stupid and would insult the intelligences of today's kids who would just hate this dvd except perhaps for "Little Beaux Pink" and maybe "The Pink Phink" which inexplicably won an Oscar which I can only assume is because there were no other entries for that category for that year.
The sound quality is good though as far as Dolby Digital Mono quality will allow although it would have been nice if in addition to a very badly needed digital picture restoration, a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround or DTS plus THX audio option ala what they did with the restored "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" dvd were included as well.
Overall, this is a sad waste of a dvd which makes me realise just how far cartoon quality has evolved over the years to make this one of my all time favourite cartoons look very, very poor and lame today. Avoid at all costs until a more value for money version with major audio and especially visual restoration with decent special features are added.
Highly not recommended!
