''Revenge'' was unfortunately Peter Sellers' last performance as Clouseau due to his untimely death. Edwards decided to continue the series with new lead characters.

*** A similiar thing happened before ''Trail'' in ''Revenge of...'', nobody remembers Dreyfus' scheme in ''Strikes Again'', and they even ask to give a eulogy to Clouseau's (faked) funeral.

* ''Film/{{The Pink Panther|1963}}'' (1963): Sir Charles Lytton is a GentlemanThief who operates under the identity of "The Phantom". Inspector Jacques Clouseau is a French detective who is trying to track him down in Switzerland before he can steal the prized treasure of the kingdom of Lugash, the Pink Panther diamond (a large gem so named because of a pink, panther-shaped flaw), from a visiting princess. Alas, Clouseau is such a fool that he is easily outsmarted by way of the combined forces of the Phantom, his nephew, the princess herself, and the Phantom's key accomplice...Clouseau's own wife. While the thieves were the focus of this film, Clouseau, as played by Creator/PeterSellers, was the character the subsequent films were based around, starting with...

When his plane vanishes, [=TV=] reporter Marie Jouvet (Joanna Lumley) decides to investigate his disappearance by interviewing those who knew him well, turning the second half of the film into a ClipShow.

* ''Son of the Pink Panther'' (1993): Ten years after the previous film's events, a {{Revision}} of what happened in ''A Shot in the Dark'' reveals Clouseau sired a son, Jacques Gambrelli ([[LifeIsBeautiful Roberto Benigni]]). One day on his beat in the south of France, his path accidentally crosses with those of the kidnapped Princess Yasmin of Lugash ''and'' Dreyfus all at once. Then Dreyfus realizes, given the [[LikeFatherLikeSon father's track record,]] that it might not be such a bad idea to have this junior Clouseau track her down. This had the misfortune of being the final film of both Music/HenryMancini ''and'' Creator/BlakeEdwards.

* ChekhovsSkill: In the 2006 film, Dreyfus dismisses the fact that the coroner's report mentions Bizu was killed with a perfect shot to the occipital lobe; Yuri learned this while in the Russian army as part of his training and used it to kill Bizu.

In 2006, the franchise was rebooted under the original title ''The Pink Panther'', with Creator/SteveMartin as Clouseau and Creator/JeanReno as a new sidekick, Ponton. Aside from Clouseau, Dreyfus was the only character carried over from the original films (played by Creator/KevinKline in the first, and Creator/JohnCleese in the second). This managed to yield one sequel in 2009. Despite their almost completely negative critical reception, the reboot films are remarkably faithful to the tone and spirit of the original films. (Well, YMMV on that!)
