The Pink Panther and Friends Classic Cartoon Collection – The Inspector

The cartoon version of Inspector Clouseau (Pat Harrington) is pretty much like the real life one. He is a bumbling idiot but he somehow always solves the case. The 34 Inspector cartoons (17 are in this collection) were all done in the late 1960s, so take that into account. They can be a little dated but still are generally funny. Just be aware that there is no Pink Panther in these cartoons it is all the Inspector.
