About the Pink Panther

The Pink Panther is a large and valuable fictitious diamond which is the center of the first film in the movie series. It bears that name because the flaw at its center, when viewed closely, is said to resemble a leaping pink panther.

The Pink Panther cartoon character is the main character in a series of animated short films. The character originally appeared in the opening and closing credit sequences of the 1963 live-action feature film The Pink Panther. The popularity of the character spawned a series of animated short films, and the character would appear in the opening sequence of every film in The Pink Panther series (except A Shot in the Dark). As of February 2007, the cartoons can be viewed on Cartoon Network's Boomerang.
