The Pink Panther is the main and title character in the opening and closing credit sequences of every film in The Pink Panther series (1963) featuring an inept French police detective, Inspector Jacques Clouseau.
It was such a success with audiences that it led to a series of theatrical shorts, merchandise, a comic book, and television cartoons.
The first Pink Panther animated cartoon ‘The Pink Phink’ was in 1964.
