* ''Romance of the Pink Panther'': Never made, due to AuthorExistenceFailure. Peter Sellers, who bought out the rights to the character after having a falling-out with Blake Edwards, wrote a script in which Clouseau falls in love with the ClassyCatBurglar he is chasing. Eight days after Sellers delivered the script to United Artists in 1980, he died. Nowadays one can find said script floating aroung the internet.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Clouseau's accent in ''Return'' tends to veer between the more normal-sounding voice he used in the first two films, and the thicker, more nasal accent he uses in ''Strikes Again'' and ''Revenge''.

''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...

* ''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.
