The Pink Panther Cartoon Collection Volume 2 (Blu-ray)
Directed by Friz Freleng and Larry Storch
In this collection of twenty animated theatrical shorts, the Pink Panther firmly hits his stride, the character’s persona first established and refined in his previous twenty films. The Pink Panther of 1966-1968 is just reaching his prime, one blithe cat maintaining his cool in the face of an uptight society, often personified by the stress-wracked “Little Man.” Here, as always, are pop-culture parodies (the still-timely superhero spoof Super Pink), satires of ’60s counterculture (Psychedelic Pink), and flirtations with outright surrealism (The Hand Is Pinker Than the Eye, Pink Outs). With production supervised by animation legend Friz Freleng, and direction largely handled by the Panther’s original graphic designer Hawley Pratt, these shorts blend classic cartoon slapstick with a more modern sensibility that make them favorites with audiences of all ages.
Blu-ray Extras Include:
20 shorts in chronological order (21-40) - All with original audio (no laugh tracks)
Audio commentaries for selected films by author Mark Arnold, historian Jerry Beck, filmmaker Greg Ford, cartoon writer William Hohauser, and veteran DePatie-Freleng storymen Tony Benedict and Art Leonardi
