The Pink Panther Cartoon Collection: Volume 5 (Blu-ray)
Directed by Friz Freleng and David H. DePatie and Art Leonardi
Larry D. Mann
In this next-to-last phase of the Pink Panther’s amazing run of new theatrical short-subjects, newsworthy mid-to-late 1970s trends and fads such as Rock’em-Sock’em robots (PINK ARCADE), compulsive dieting (DIETETIC PINK), and the merchandizing of “pet rocks” (Art Leonardi’s ROCKY PINK) come into focus. Fairy-tale spoofs (PINK PIPER, CAT AND THE BEANSTALK) make a modest comeback, but much more impressive are brand-new wrinkles on familiar Panther themes like sleep deprivation (Art Davis’s PINK TRUMPET), wars against a pesky fly (turning positively apocalyptic in Sid Marcus’s PINK S.W.A.T.) and journeys through surreality (SHERLOCK PINK, Robert McKimson’s last and probably best “Panther” pic).

NEW Audio commentaries for selected films, by author Mark Arnold, historian Jerry Beck, filmmaker Greg Ford and cartoon writer William Hohauser
