New Series of Pink Panther & Pals
For the first time in almost two decades, The Pink Panther is back with a new series of cartoons, MGM announced.
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM) and Rubicon Group have announced the launch of Pink Panther & Pals, the first new series in the iconic franchise in 17 years, on Cartoon Network on March 7 at 7:30 a.m.
Pink Panther & Pals is based on the animated Pink Panther character created by David DePatie and Friz Freland and the Pink Panther films of Blake Edwards. Each show contains two episodes depicting a teenage Panther and his buddies, and one episode featuring the Ant & the Aardvark characters.
"Cartoon Network getting behind this new series by featuring new episodes every Sunday this spring is giving Panther fans across America something new to laugh about," said David J. Corbett, executive producer.
“Each show contains two episodes of a teenage Panther and his buddies, and one episode featuring the Ant & the Aardvark characters,” according to MGM.
The new cartoon series is based on the old Pink Panther created by David DePatie and Friz Freleng, the studios said, as well as the movies directed by Blake Edwards.
Executive producer Walter Mirisch added, "The Pink Panther is one of those rare characters that parents trust yet he is also versatile enough to entertain generation after generation."
