LET’S GET the order right here. First came THE PINK PANTHER SHOW, starring your “rinky-dink Panther” of gentleman, scholar and “acrobat” persuasion, boasting utterly unrelated cadging-a-lift-off-a-boy-driving-through-the-desert titles and The Inspector for half-time entertainment (“Don’t say ‘si’, say ‘oui’!” “Si – I mean oui”). These were imperial antics, with the jive-walking feline mostly getting one over generic big-nosed all-white workmen and using his tail as an umbrella/pogo stick/electrical wire/hat stand as appropriate. Next up was THE ALL NEW PINK PANTHER SHOW, which had the funked-up version of the classic Mancini theme, and Pink coming out of a shower, drying himself with a hair dryer and turning into a big pink furball. These were the ones “introducing” Crazylegs Crane, and Pink disco dancing at the end. Finally came THE NEW PINK PANTHER SHOW, which was presumably made between the first two, but which came bearing the rotten Aardvark (“And the Aardvark too!”) and the brilliant “Yes sir, it’s all for you, and funnier too!” titles.
