In ''[[Film/ThePinkPanther1963 The Pink Panther]]'', the AnimatedCreditsOpening visualized the pink, panther-shaped flaw in the titular diamond as an actual pink panther in an opening sequence created by Creator/DepatieFrelengEnterprises. The credit sequence was so popular that besides becoming the SeriesMascot of the live-action film series, the Pink Panther was given his own series of animated shorts.

* TheVoiceless: With the exception of exactly one [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks incredibly poorly-received]] revival, the panther is always mute, as are most of his side characters.



* ArtEvolution

to:

* ArtEvolutionArtEvolution: In his first appearance, he looks more anatomically like a real panther. Beginning with the animated shorts, he would evolve into the slender, bipedal cartoon animal we all know today.

* AmbiguouslyJewish: WesternAnimation/{{The A|ntAndTheAardvark}}ardvark.
** In an episode of ''The New Pink Panther Show'', the Aardvark (as a Franchise/{{Tarzan}} parody) screams "Oy Vey!" in a Tarzan-like manner.

* CluelessDetective: The Inspector - though the cartoons go back on forth (often within the same cartoon) as to whether he's a bumbler with a HypercompetentSidekick, or bumbling but semi-competent with a clueless sidekick [[LetsGetDangerous who still manages to get the job done in the end.]]



* ExploitingTheFourthWall: In one Inspector Clouseau episode the inspector told the artist to comply with law and put the criminal he was chasing behind bars.



* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Dean Martin for the Ant and Jackie Mason for the Aardvark. One short also had a computer parodying Creator/PaulLynde.
** The Little Man is a caricature of Creator/FrizFreleng.

When these shorts were packaged for the television market as the SaturdayMorningCartoon ''The Pink Panther Show'' at the end of TheSixties, they were soon joined by other series over the course of TheSeventies:

* '''The Ant and the Aardvark''': A 17-episode Cat-and-Mouse series about the two titular characters, a red ant and the blue aardvark who constantly tries to eat him.
* '''Tijuana Toads''': A pair of Mexican toads usually fail in catching food, but are luckier in avoiding the hunger of '''Crazylegs Crane''' and '''The Blue Racer''' (who both later got their own series). This was eventually redubbed into ''Texas Toads'' to be less offensive.
* '''Roland and Rattfink''': The eternal conflict between the perfectly pacifistic Roland and the DastardlyWhiplash-like Rattfink.
* '''Sheriff Hoot Kloot''': The misadventures of WildWest lawman Kloot and his horse Fester.
* '''Misterjaw''': A series about an affable German-accented shark and his catfish buddy, with many takeoffs from ''Film/{{Jaws}}''.
* '''The Dogfather''': A canine-focused spoof of ''Film/TheGodfather''.
